I cant see the point as a vast majority dont work with DS4 unless things have been updated but not announced?

Was just coming here to enquire about this. Really nervous about buying anything at present as everything seems to say DS3 ONLY. Wasn’t sure if this was a hangover from the DS2 to DS3 move or whether it is unusable.

Is there a list of what does work in DS4 anywhere?

Uh-Oh. I was ready to buy “Touch of the Mediterranean” and “Grand Staircase Light Set”. Do these not work in DAZ 4? I didn’t see anything in these products that said DAZ 3 only.  Grand Staircase Light Set says “DAZ Studio 3.1.2.32 and above only”, so I thought 4 would work. The other one doesn’t say anything about DAZ version at all. What should I be looking at to know if they will work? Thanks.

I think the compatibility issue is with the plug-in type products from Dreamlight not actual 3D models.

Actually, I’m mainly a Poser user looking to add some cheap lights sets to my meager DS armoury. The Light’n'Go sets look great but say they are DS3 only. Not sure why unless they are based on LDP which will not work as yet I think.

Have posted a request for clarification in DL Forum. Hopefully get an answer before the sale goes off.

Grand Staircase Light Set, at least, works in DS4; I bought that a while back and have used it in DS 4. (Be prepared for some truly EPIC render times.) As far as the light sets go in general, however, I think you have to ask Dreamlight. I wanted to get Light Dome Pro 2, but I did some poking around online and found a thread on the old forum that said that it doesn’t work in DS4. Pity. (Though I saw elsewhere that he offered a free upgrade for some products for people who had compatibility issues in the DS2/3 upgrade, so maybe there will eventually be an update for products that have DS3/DS4 upgrade issues—though probably not until after 4.5 goes final, since that breaks all the plugins again.)


Apart from the light sets, Dreamlight’s got several props and sets that were put into the store after DS4 came out, and those should be fine. (I keep looking longingly at Egypt City and Ra’s Castle, and especially La Piazza Mediterranean Town—and seriously, that’s a whole town—but I would never do anything with them to justify even this extremely reduced price. I just want them.)

I have quite a few Dreamlight products and they all work fine in DS4 4.0.3.047
 
Light-n-Go - Streets of the Mediterranean
Light-n-Go - Streets of Asia
Touch of the Mediterrean for SOTM
Streets of Asia Light Set
Village Courtyard - Eternal Romance
 
The latter two are night light sets, very dramatic.  I use the lightdome/backgrounds that comes with the daytime sets quite often with other items.  Touch of the Mediterrean for SOTM set was used with the Ultralight freebie.
 
Edited: “Streets of Asia Light Set” is actually “Breath Of The Dragon Streets Of Asia - DAZ Studio Light Set” nighttime light set.

Just FYI, what the Grand Staircase Lights, along with one of the four included camera views, look like in action. Using DS 4.0.3.47 Pro.

Thank you all for the reassurance about the products I’m considering. The sample renders are helpful too.

“Work fine in DS4” in this thread.—Thank you very much Lindsey. :)

I really wish the PA made it clearer. It took time to make sure which can be use in DS4, and it’s kinda depressing that many of them don’t work in DS4. :(

That’s correct. Plug in’s are DS 3 only, while all props + light sets will work in DS 3+ DS 4.
