Name shift?

Okay, I've been digging through my Itemized Order History and resetting and redownloading the items which were originally in the old OS 9 VISE installers. For the most part, it's just been a slog. But I've got a handfull of products which I can't find, because the names in the list don't match the names on the old installers. A couple of those I managed to find by looking for alternate possibilities, but I've got a few which just don't show up at all. Has anyone got an idea of what names I *ought* to be looking for?


Bonsai Tree: I see a Bonsai Mappack in the list, but not the base item. What would you call "Bonsai Tree" other than Bonsai Tree?


There are also a couple of things that appear to be texture packages for a number of fluted columns and other bits of garden stonework. The installers are named "Marblecraft" and "Stonecraft". The ReadMes direct one to a "DAZ Elf Nouveau Stone Craft Garden Collection".There are no such entries under DAZ, or Elf, or Nouveau. Neither are there any such entries under Garden, nor, need I say under either Marblecraft, or Stonecraft. So where ought I to be looking?


This probably won't be the last such post. Once the old OS 9 installers get replaced, I get to start on the OS X VISE installers. And there are *lots* more of those.

    I'm not sure that the DAZ Elf Nouveau Stone Craft Garden Collection set wasn't a forum freebie.

    In an installer? Most of the stuff in the forums download in .zip files. They *might* have been something from the old Freebie collection, though. Those came down in installers. What I have are two installers. The Stonecraft one is probably the base set, the Marblecraft a texture set. I've only been around since 2009, but wherever these came from they are bound to be older than that.


    I'll hang onto them until I can get to someone with an old Mac, but as often as not OS 9 installers are dead installers, even if you do get them to old hardware.


    I'm shuddering at the amount of mucking about it's going to take to replace all of the OS X VISE installers, but it needs to be done.

    Perhaps it is under "P" for
    Poseable Bonsai Tree

    That looks like a strong possibility. Will go digging. Thank you!

    ETA: yup, that's it. Won't show in the downloadable items after I hit reset, but I'll give it a bit more time.

    I'm pretty sure it was a freebie of some sort. I got it back in 2004. There's the original prop and then an addon texture set.

    thanks for the info. I think I'll buy this because it would go with my sushi.

    I'm not sure it was a freebie. I have it in my Itemized Order History, and I acquired it in February 2008. I keep an Excel spreadsheet for each of my order histories from all the 3D stores I shop at, and I always mark a freebie as such. Besides, back then (and certainly when I first joined in October of 2004), anything downloaded from the freebie archives would not show up in our Order Histories, and since it was in February when I got it, I doubt it had anything to do with a freebie give-a-way as we have during the holidays, and as JOdel mentioned, freebies from the forums weren't installers.

    What does your Itemized Order History call it? That's my problem. I can't find it or the texture pack in my Itemized Order History. Whatever it's named there isn't what the product calls itself.

    JOdel, is this the item you mean? This is a paste from the old Member's Forum (I copy the text when I DL anything from the forum):

    MEMBERS FORUM - WELCOME! FREEBIES (in Topic 153)

    DAZ Productions, together with Lisa, Laurie and Moyra (your resident PC artists) welcome you to the Platinum Club Members Only section!

    So the good news is, that may be where it came from, but the bad news is: the old Members Forum can't be accessed any more.

    That's deffinetly where it originally came from, I have no recollection of having visited it, but I suppose I must have.


    Unfortunately, none of those file names appear in my Itemized Order History. For one thing, nothing in the history now has the leader of ps_a[whatever digits], and since I'm on a Mac it would have been .zip rather than .exe -- and the extension is no longer shown either, if it ever was.


    And if I downloaded it from a forum, I can't imagine that it would be in my order history anyway. And even if the old forum could be accessed, the product would probably still be in an OS 9 installer.


    In any case, there is nothing in my Itemized Order History entitled either Stonecraft or Marblecraft. And all of this suggests that it isn't in there masquerading under some other name, either. Oh well. I knew I lost a handful of things in the inadvertent disk wipe, these were evidently among them -- unless I can get them to an old Mac and the installers will still run on it.

    if you visit the Members only forum and look for freebies Reloaded Stone craft is in there. It had been a exe but is now a zip due to an update when Platinum Club brought them back.

    Marble craft is also there.
