what the hell is up with this?

I thought since the V6 HD was out (for Genesis 2 Female)...it would be useable with other things?

Is there more HD details not covered in the V6 HD edition (like other things to add-on)

In other words…are they different? Do they offer different things

To me it seems that Olynpia 6 HD contains noticeable cellulitis on her back side judging by promo pictures.

Whatever. HD morphs on Olympia look more like jiggled and jammed geometry than some fine details. Maybe it is just failed renders but looking at it I’m not interested.

Also, a bit expensive for an add on pack without new textures.

This is what surprised me, same price as V6 HD but no texture

No textures and, from what I can tell, very minor detailing that, if I’m not mistaken, is available in the V6 HD pack.

My question is, if Olympia has one, where’s the ones for Gia, Girl, and Josie?

yeah, this is the most baffling release by DAZ I’ve seen in a while. Not only that it’s for Olympia instead of Gia, who could probably use the HD morphs more, but why they think they can charge the same price for half the content is kind of beyond me.

I would assume they just forgot to advertise it on the product page, but then there’s no promo pictures for a new texture either…

And then I go to the snowball promotion and there’s only two items for yesterday when I was pretty sure there were seven.

They really need to get their daily updates in order, the day has 24 hours, the shop is ‘open’ 24 hours but for around 8 of those hours their new releases are just not ready to be sold.

This is not the first time for them.

I got the Victoria and Michael HD sets, because it seemed reasonable with the textures.  But without a texture, I think I will give this one a pass.

Right click on the promo image and open it full sized in a new tab.

And then I go to the snowball promotion and there’s only two items for yesterday when I was pretty sure there were seven.

The store glitch yesterday meant there were no new snowball products for the day. The two now showing are from previous days and I’m not sure why they are there.

Ditto’ng this — the 51% intro-discount stacking with my snowballs means the price I’d get it today is the lowest I’m likely to ever see it available, but there’ve been a lot of those this month!  ohh  I’ve already got the V6/M6 HDs, and I’m not sure how much I’ll be using O6 anyway . . .  hmmm

While I think HD is very cool (although expensive), I think it’s better suited for other kind of characters and stuff, I really don’t see notieceable improvement on regular human characters. Maybe on textureless closeup comparissons but so far I’m not convinced on regular renders when duffuse, bump and specular maps comes into play.
This shows more potential on extreme characters in my opinion.
Now, this to me, looks much more interesting (the promo’s settings are a bit high for closeups, but the detail looks better to me).
Too bad its for Victoria 6. I’d like that for Generation 5.

Here is a quick comparison between Olympia and Olympia HD. The differences are subtle.

I just asked himself, who doesn’t use any 3d programs at all, and asked which was best. He didn’t even have to think about it, he immediately said the one on the right is better, looks more realistic, so you may say they are subtle differences, but they are instantly noticeable to someone who likes to look at the images, but doesn’t himself make them.
