Personally on my wish list is a realistic snake to pose on Genesis 2 characters, with several different skins for the snakes and poses matching the snake to the person.. come on, wouldn’t that be AWESOME?  I especially want to see more Ethnic characters know that Caucasian and Asian characters are pretty well already covered by the masses.  I think doing more alien and character additions with a focus on realism would be wicked.

I got a friend who keeps talking about, “The Crow” and maybe even recreating the bridge of the Star Trek’s Enterprise or something like that would be a dream set…  I would imagine some hobbit like characters might be in the call for those who would do the classic dungeons and dragons themes..  How about a HDR skydome of fireworks and explosions?  Lots of HDR enviroments please..

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years

What do you hope to see?

Here’s a few from my wishlist for 2014.

Kids 6
Yes yes, I know we technically have K6 with the awesome Growing Up morphs, but there’s a lot to be said for Daz when they release a new figure. Alongside any major character release we often see a range of products intended for the character, or morphs based off that figure. Olympia is a recent example, with characters like Diana, Nidale and Kori built off her, each with their own lovely skins and options. The last big-name kids character was Julie and Justin for Genesis, which I still hold in high esteem, but for those younger children we haven’t seen it since Kids 4.

Toon Pirate outfit for Genesis
A bit overly specific you might think, but there’s a reason for this. I’ve owned Skull Cove for a while now, with the aim to use it with Sadie and Sam for Genesis from 3D Universe. Sadly, there aren’t any pirate outfits for Genesis that I know of, and finding one which works well with toon-style figures is probably never going to happen. Still, it’s my wishlist and I’ll have what I like on it, likely or not.

Beards for Genesis 2 Male
I’ll be the first to admit I really suck at using Garibaldi. I’ve tried and failed to create wonderful facial or body hair. Perhaps LAMH is an easier approach, but I firmly believe I simply lack the talent necessary to make it look right. Even hairstyles elude my artistic abilities, with many strands of hair following the other in an all-too uniform style. So, beards then. Not the stubbly kind you get painted on textures, but everything from the gentlemanly beard to the long wizardly kind that could sweep the floor as you walk.

Those are the main three I can think of right now. No doubt I’ll find more things to add to my wishlist (though my desire for a K6 is anything but ephemeral) but that’ll do for today.

What do I hope to see?

A plug-in for Daz Studio that will let it use Poser textures and shaders as-is, rather than having to fiddle with the settings manually.

More support for the older figures - Gen3 and Gen4 both.

A 64-bit version of Hexagon.


What do I expect to see?

More G2F stuff.

Keep your eyes peeled.  That wish is likely to be granted in very interesting ways.  grin

Dog and Cat 2 with more textures.  The Mil dog is rather out dated and is a poor representation of canines.

Bridge between Studio and Cararra.

1 - GenX for Genesis 2 - GenX was one of the major reasons I took the plunge from Gen 4 to Genesis and we’ve already got texture convertors in place to use the huge variety of V4/M4 skins… now we just need to be able to pull the morphs over to the latest line of figures. 

2.  A plug-in for creating Dynamic cloth in-Studio.  Despite its inferior built-in figures, Poser’s two huge advantages over DAZ continues to be the ability to create naturally draping clothing and hair.  In the last 14 months we finally got two forms of growable hair and fur for DS, and while they’re not dynamic, they’re a huge improvement over what was there before.  Now it’s time to either step the Optitex soft up a notch or jetison it in favor of something similar to Poser’s cloth room.  (Seriously, DAZ, making your own dynamic clothes or converting conforming ones has been possible in Poser for nearly 7 years now.  What’s the deal?)   

3 - An ADVANCED manual for DAZ Studio 4.X.  After the enormous letdown of the badly misnamed “Complete Guide to DAZ Studio,” which would have been more accurately named a “beginners guide with a chapter on Reality” and compounded the error by being both overpriced and poorly printed, the actual release of official Documentation for DS 4.6 Pro, for free, was a huge step in the right direction.  Unfortunately, there are still hundreds of facets of using this great program that haven’t been touched on in either tome, many of which one has to scour the web for hours to find any current information on.  Here’s hoping that DAZ team follows up the first set of documentation with something aimed at more experienced users… something that I’ll gladly pay for.  (And if you ever get documentation on Carrara 8 up there, I might consider upgrading my current copy of 8 Pro to 8.5.)

4 - More architectural models built around real life themes.  There are plenty of apartments and houses out there, and a reasonable assortment of schoolrooms and offices.  However, the DAZ/Poserverse really needs some kind of large shopping area and the few “mall” models that are out there are creaking with age.  Likewise, the only Gas Stations I’m aware of are so old they don’t even have working doors. 

5 - Okay, I know this seems crazy… but how about an upgrade to the old cyclorama/millennium environment concept? Specifically, something that works along the lines of a 2 1/2D matte painting, where the images are mapped onto a “planes” that actually have some modeling to them and would therefore react to scene lighting with the appropriate shadows, or which would exhibit a slight parallax shift during camera movement?

“And on the subject of bundles, exactly WHY does the M5 Pro Suite have a V5 DRESS and the Troll in it? Exactly what kind of “pro” IS M5?  Apparently one who likes to dress up in drag and go cruising down in the red light district of lower Middle Earth.”

1. I really could use:

Modern and up-todate, (not buck rodgers style) Sci-fi

Living quarters/Apartment
Bar
Mess Hall,
Food Props

2. A new adult male figure. The male equivalent of Olympia. M6 is a good start, but I find his face very difficult to modify

3. A m5 morph for M6

4. Alien skins, both anthropomorphic and Alien

5. Boiler suit/jumpsuit/flight suit.

6. Improved Cape for both fantasy and sci-fi renders

Have to agree here. I keep eying Luxus for this reason.

I’d also like to actually learn how to use the Garibaldi Express Hair System.

#1 Ditto to a built in Dynamic engine. Not only would that improve clothing but also improve the limited collision we now have.

#2 More Working Sets, come on PA’s at least let me open a door or window once in a bluemoon. I don’t need interiors just let me open a door please.

#3 Lighting sets that do not LOAD with Uber Environment elements set to default POOR quality, Without at least Telling me before I hit render.

Just those 3 would help me along.

Here are my wishes for my hobby. Hexagon 3 64 Bit but honestly i don’t think we will see this. A new Millennium Dog, Cat and Dragon. A cool snake. Additional Creature morphs for Genesis 2. A Muscle Morph Set. Lots of HD Morphs and lots of male stuff for Sc-Fi and Fantasy.

...OK, finally have the overalls I wanted for my Leela so that’s off the list.

@RobKelk, I agree about an updated (and bug free) Hexagon that includes sculpting and improved UV mapping.

@bcameron: Yes, both Mil Cat and Mil Dog are in need of a serious update. Also fur for the LAMH player like BigCat2 has. Even though I’m not much into fantasy myself, I’m sure there are people who would be mighty happy to see a Dragon2 as well.

@Cybersox, Yes, Yes, and Yes, to full cloth dynamics. It is about time Daz Studio has this incredibly important tool, be it built in or available as a plugin.

Now for my personal choices:

#1. ,An accurately detailed and proportioned 9’ concert stage grand piano (similar to a Steinway D Model) that includes the interior frame and strings.
#2. Aircraft that look as if they could actually fly according to the basic principles of Aerodynamics.
#4. Sleek shiny 1950s styled Sci-Fi rocket ships and flying saucers.
#3. Fish.
#5. More cyberpunk themed content like interface implants, updated cyber limbs for G2, gear like portable comps (not just another laptop), surveillance and spy drones, weapons, HUD glasses/visors etc, as well as appropriate fashions (think The Matrix, Elysium, etc).

...and if Jack is listening in, #6: A full English Country Manor done similar to the old Dream House.

updated active pose that can pin feet and they don’t move in animation after posing
an easy measuring system in dazstudio that tells me how big things are in centimeters/meters or how far away another object is
