Michael 6 Pro Bundle

Feel free to discuss all things Michael 6 in this thread.

If you haven't, make sure you download the Genesis 2 Male Starter Essentials through DIM or your Product Library. Michael 6 won't work without it.

    Thanks for including those other products in the tier discounts. I like the variety in the Pro Bundle and wish to thank the vendors for their hard work.

    He looks awesome, the PA's really outdid themselves!
    But there is some confusion over the pricing.
    It contains 3 items less than the V6 pro bundle but it comes at a $40 higher price.

    Yes the price is only uncertainty for me. I love the content very much, he looks so awesome :D Hopefully Head and Body morphs not far behind, I am lost without them LOL

    Unfortunately with this massive price hike from previous bundles, I doubt I will be able to afford much.

    The price is definitely odd given that the contents of V6 Pro bundle cost more than what's in M6 Pro, yet somehow M6 Pro regular price is $41 higher.

    Mind you I did the comparison rather quickly so there may be a mistake somewhere...

    Um, I'm not seeing G2M head and body morphs pack, can anybody post a link on those, please?

  • JOdelJOdel Posts: 2,153

    Right. Definitely need those, unless they're included in the Starter essentials. I'd be surprised if they were, though.

    Yesterday I've checked but didn't find them in Essentials.

    Nor did I. I do see that there is a G2F female clone though. So at least they are making a stab at still being able to autofit clothing across both genders. I'm assuming that the Genesis clone that shipped with G2F starter essentials also works with G2M, but nothing is installed yet to be able to tell for sure.

    These are a necessity for me. The inflated price for fewer items as compared to the V6 pro bundle I can almost deal with but if there are no face and body morphs, what's the point?

    Yes, not everything is being dumped on the store at once.

    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. :) Thankfully we'll have all the other awesome to keep us busy, meanwhile.

    The basic morph and expression packs needed to be ready to go concurrent with the launch of the base. I'm hoping that I just checked the page before everything went live.

    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 :)

    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!

    hi just bought the michael 6 basic package and ran into problem installed all okay then opened up the figure and its asking for a file named: data/daz3d/genesis2/genesis2male.dsf. does anybody know what this file is and what it wasn't on the install?

  • RogerbeeRogerbee Posts: 3,849
    edited December 1969

    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!

    Poor Mike 6..... he looks so vulnerable without his morphs...... Gia has already stolen his lunch money... and look out... Freak 5 just threw him in the dumpster.

    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 missing. The 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? ;)

    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. :-) 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.
