I seem to recall seeing a thread awhile back on here where the talented content creators wanted to know what, “we” the customers would like to see for products. Since the forum is still not working well I figured I would start one up. Here are some suggestions for products I would like to see, I know that there are similar products out already but it does not hurt to see these again for the current generation of 3d products, Genesis, V5/M5, and so on. The reality is that the existing products have limited features and are not quite flexible for using on the newest figures. Applying clothing meant for M4 or V4 on Genesis or V5/M5 characters works but try and figure out how to adjust a sleeve or button to be opened its a pain in the neck.

*I currently use both Poser Pro 2012 and Daz Studio 4 Pro. 4.47 or something rather. I know its the one before 4.5 rc 1.

Bride’s Outfit for Genesis/V5 - Traditional style, not modern.
Groom’s Outfit for Genesis/M5 - Traditional style, not modern.
Bathrobe with many morphing options, or a dynamic option.
NASA Astronaut Suit for Genesis/V5/M5.
Cowboy Outfit for M5… not a converted model.
CHP Uniform Outfit for M5.
Andorian Antennae for Genesis, maybe more Star Trek options. I know there are some on CG Share… but the textures are a bit hit and miss.
Snowmobile for Genesis… has anyone ever seen one of those yet?
More variety of one storey houses, the recent Bungalow was nice but I want to see different room arrangements etc for one storey houses. There are plenty of houses on the market and most of them are a little over extravagant. Something a little realistic and affordable for middle class working 3d family would be nice. smile

How come there haven’t been any movements regarding updating the millenium animal set… something akin to Genesis. The products in the old cataglogue are getting a little dated looking.

These are the first 2 in a series, so there will be other houses coming in future.

If you need a nice interior for your modest home I recommend Macleans Room Creator 2 the tool bar does not work but the seperate icons do. I use it for my stuff.

A wedding tux then. Something kind of like this… http://www.finetuxedos.com/tuxedos-by-occasion/wedding-tuxedos/giorgio-fiorelli-tuxedo.html or something like this http://www.finetuxedos.com/tuxedos-by-occasion/wedding-tuxedos/super-100-tuxedo-package.html
or even a variety of them but starting off from the basic idea of the wedding tuxedo. That would be the starting point. smile

I’m always open to suggestions, if you could describe what would be your ideal house (look, lay-out) I might just build it wink

Hi mardook


Thank you for the plan, it’s a great help to get started.
I made two drafts with only slight variations; glass block walls in the bathroom to take advantage of the light from the window, a backdoor in the laundry room and walk-in cupboards/storage in the bedrooms.


As I said these are drafts and anything/everything can be changed, looking forward to your views and those of everyone else


Many thanks

Thank you mardook, patience is the one thing that I am not lacking wink

In principle, would this be what you are looking for ?
Now’s the time to let me know, any much further work and it becomes too difficult to make major changes.

Ooo, I guess I better go morph up and finish that bathrobe set I’ve got rigged and see if DAZ will have it.

So many goodies, so little time…

Hi Staffa… I really like both options but I’d like to have hallways in the house. I like the glassblock walls in the bathroom but the way it was setup before, Its stupid I know but oh well, I also like the idea of a backdoor through the laundry area so I’d go for that.. The closet space in the bedrooms is a nice Idea but I cannot see myself ever rendering those areas when I have models of dressers, and other bedroom furniture to use for that. I like the smoother entryway into the living room that you have included in the alternative. I think the smaller door into the kitchen does not work for me at least. I feel the kitchen area should have a large entryway that is open. To me, I would purchase both variations at some point were they made available because can’t have too many models. :D

I love the clothing that you have created. It looks great on the figures.

Question for ya. Is the bathrobe set the something that you have released before or something new?

Just wondering. smile

It’s all new.  So far I haven’t offered any converted products to DAZ. 

I never did tie-front robes or bathrobes for V4M4 because I felt I couldn’t do them justice in a reasonable amount of time with .cr2 joint falloff rigging.  Genesis and DS4, with the TriAx rigging and the smoothing/collision system, have made several projects possible that were too hard and time-consuming to do and still keep product turnover reasonable (I’ve done two full armors as well, for instance, which was just not practical for me before).
