Oh wow! I would not have dreamed it possible to have so many niggling problems crop up in the course of creating a simple website - at least, not without having had the experience. I think that right now, my ickle bruvver will be collapsed with exhaustion. But - there - it is a waste of time and space even to hint at it. Let us just be thankful that the basic website structure is finally working and in place, with freebies, paid-for, tutorials and a number of other nascent topics that can only grow in the future.
Visit www.skippersmodels.com or www.skippersmodels.co.uk, where AT LAST you may download the completed Highclere Castle model (aka Downton Abbey) or many other models. Please give us a visit, make a comment or even (wow!) buy a model.
There are a lot of freebies available and as backup, they will also still be available from ShareCG.
I saw the site, Skipper! Quite nice, straightforward style. Not coding-heavy, either. (I found myself smiling that I’d already got many of your commercial-quality pieces before you set tags on them. Fine work on all of them!)
It is in Poser format and is going great guns. Although with care and attention it is possible to convert for D|S, it seems that some people have been having difficulty, so we are at work in order to produce a D|S-only upload too. Sorry for the delay - RL keeps butting in.
...just noticed this the date on the OP, whoops. The palace was still on Share CG last month where I DL’d it from (download date of 4.4.13.
So will there still be a Daz version forthcoming (even for purchase?) I’ve been able to load the model into Daz 4.5 from the Poser Runtime and it sets up fine though, as with most Poser content, I needed to tweak the shaders a bit. I didn’t try the Daz option as outlined in the readme of installing to an external folder and importing into the application. Will give that a try to see if there is any difference.
Overall it is a beautiful model and already planning a scene around it.
Simon - you’ve got it. LOL I don’t know how long I can keep this up.
Lisa - you are very welcome.
Media Head - it is available right now. See the website www.skippersmodels.co.uk It is the DS version that is suspended, requiring a little attention from me.
