Greetings,

Khory - 19 November 2013 03:03 AM

That said, I have the feeling that some of the things are going to take painfully longer than others.

I can’t imagine why other than not slamming the store with products. Pretty sure that the products shown in the preview thread are not all of the ones cued up to go live. In fact, I don’t recall seeing the forest poses shown there and thinking about it I am pretty sure I know of a couple of other things not previewed in that thread that PA’s have done.

Oh no, the preview thread stuff I imagine is ready to go, to be released as the week goes on.  No, stuff like the dress suit that Aave (I think) showed, apparently had JUST been submitted to QA.  Male M3dia’s stuff, reading between the lines, was not quite ready yet (although the characters looked gorgeous).

Sure, I totally expect there will be surprises (like the forest poses), and everything will eventually come out, I’m just noting that a few pieces that are anticipated will take a bit longer, and delays are always painful. smile  Thankfully we’ll have all the other awesome to keep us busy, meanwhile.

— Morgan

Well.. we are STILL waiting for some of the products that were shown in the sneak peak thread of V6, so I doubt that all the items we saw in the M6 sneak peak is going to come i na near future.


On another note, the price is… strange for sure, and the only thing that keeps me from buying anything at this point. Would also want information regarding the Body and Head morphs smile

I imagine this is why the Mega coupon is good until December 3rd.  To give time to decide as more stuff comes out this week and maybe next week too.

I want the M6 Pro Bundle and am thinking of getting it with my MEGA prize code; but that discount, even applied on top of the PC discount, doesn’t amount to all that much of a prize.  I’m somewhat disappointed and will probably moderate my participation in future promotions where the end prize is kept a secret or just ends up being a nebulous fog shrouding a discount and not an actual freebie.

M6 might end up being very useful for me but for now, just color me disappointed with a slightly grouchy specular highlight.

Seems odd that the morphs aren’t out yet, you’d think they would have come out first along with the base figure. I loaded the G2 Male and, possibly due to him using the same base texture, he looks a lot like M5.

Ah well, I’ll get M6 himself next week and maybe the morphs will be out then

CHEERS!

You need to go to your Product Library and download and install the Genesis 2 Male Starter Essentials, once you’ve got those installed M6 should work.

CHEERS!

Greetings,
Okay…  Folks know I’m not usually one to complain.  I love me some DAZ.  I wanted to do a quick render, and I picked Brandon, as I thought he was cool looking.

This is what I got:

Some assets needed to load the file were missingThe content may not work as expected.
The following files could not be found.

/
data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Body/CTRLFitness.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Head/PHMEyesIrisSize.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Body/CTRLWeight.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Body/FBMBodyTone.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Body/PBMNeckSize.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Head/PHMPupilsDilate.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Body/FBMBodybuilderDetails.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Body/SCLNeckLength.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Body/FBMThin.dsf
/data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Male/Morphs/DAZ 3D/Evolution Body/PBMAdamsApple.dsf 

So for once I agree with the downer crowd; the evolution morphs should have been released at the same time. :(

— Morgan

p.s. If this is all a mistake because the Evolution Morphs were supposed to be in the bundle, that would totally explain the price difference, AND why both characters (Logan too!) use the Morph kit.

According to the promo page DAZ prowdly present M6 ... now, to me, a prow is something that juts out (usually from a ship), so with this being M6 should DAZ not ‘toastly’ present? wink

I’m whelmed… apathetic with the release, really. I was looking forward to see if the promise of great enhancements that make G2 F and M head and shoulders above G1 delivered and… I’m still waiting. Sorry, thanks for the G2F and G2M basic, but no, not investing M6 or V6 until the promise is delivered. Already spent much with Gen 4 and G1 stuff, and the latter is still better and bigger bang for the buck, without the additional 2000 polygons or bends or drapes (all of which are too subtle enhancements, IMHO).

On a related note… Pro Bundles with NO MORPHS??? sick

I just noticed the same thing but somehow I fear we’ll have to buy the morphs separately probably after the coupons run out…

Gen 5 moved them to the Pro Suite, and Gen 6 hasn’t had a pro suite.  We’ll see, though.

They’re better at customer service than that, honestly. They just aren’t very good at product releases. grin  I know they’ll make it right, but we’ll have to wait for the morning.

Hmm i cannot afford to buy this week. But honestly the Pro Bundle seems not very attractive to me for this high price.
