Ok some of you may have seen the Creation Engineer in the store
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/new-releases/creation-engineer/
I would suggest delaying till the store fixes the price there should be 30% discount on that.
The poser V4 version is out now not but not here.
I’m really sorry for the mess up and hope Daz is fixing the problem.

In a journey to the end of time they found something, a machine with technology beyond their wildest dreams something that would change their perception of their existence forever. The Creation Machine! This is the newest product for Midnight_stories, a Sci-Fi set like nothing you’ve seen before. Inspired by the latest movie block buster Prometheus.

This is compatible with both Poser 2012 and DAZ Studio 4.5, with matching sets for each. The main base has several morph dials , Hide status, bring the holographic screens up/down tapper the Data Tube. It’s also rigged into separate parts for animation so the the Sphere, Rings, Data Tube and Solar System can be rotated and scaled. The Solar System has the sun and all the planets which all can have animated orbits. Also included are show and hide poses so you can easily turn things off/on as you wish. There’s eight different material presets that can be applied overall or to just the individual parts such as the Sphere, Rings, Data Tube, Solar System and glow on the base. For those, who own the “War Eagle” I’ve included poses and mat presets so they can be added into the scene. For DAZ Studio users it’s a one click operation for both the Creation Machine and War Eagle as the new DSON format has been taken full advantage of. There’s eight light sets to match the material sets and ten camera sets to get you started, a great way to make your own matrix scene is to use the Time Warp camera shot. The textures are a combination of Diffused Specular Bump and Displacements on the base surface and Transparency and Glow map on the sphere devices.

This is a great Sci-Fi set, that will give you endless possibilities.

OK after a few technical problems it’s up and running
The Creation Engineer will be out Friday at the discounted price so hopefully things will go though smooth
It is a bit different to the V4 version but you’ll see when it comes out.
If sales go well I will back this up with another set.
Thanks to everyone who made suggestions.

Please also note the War Eagle is not required but the set does come with poses and mat presets to intergrate the War Eagle into the scene. The Daz preset is real easy one click and 4 War Eagles are in position with full Daz mats on them.

Hi! smile
Absolutely great promos! Love every pic and detail you’re showing here.
The whole product looks like it’ll be a hit (well, I have it in my cart already). Wish you good luck with sales!

I’m living on the camping to the end of September and just lately I was making for myself some scifi textures on my old puter. It’ll be fun to try them on few items from your “Creation Machine”.
All the best - Teresa smile

PS Can you tell me how big (in MB) is your product and when the sale ends? Daz should fix that info long ago…

Yes been having a great time with new concepts and ideas have got so much on the go at the moment.
Thanks for the comments. It’s my first go at a sci-fi set so was glad to get it through,Here’s some (WIP) of other stuff.

Any chance you can put the War Eagle on sale too? That looks super cool mounted on the wall in this new set.

This looks absolutely fantastic. Well done!

... but, just as I was about to hit the CHECKOUT button, I saw this note:


“The DAZ Studio version uses .DUF files and required DAZ Studio 4.5+”


So, that means you cannot use it with DAZ Studio 4.0, right?  The problem is that 4.5 is in an endless beta loop (they call it Release Candidate, but it’s really still in beta) and is actually unusable by many people because DAZ have decided, once again, to break the SDK for existing plugins.  I had 4.5 installed (and was very happy with it) but I had to revert to 4.0 because I couldn’t use any of my plugins.  I now have no plans to put 4.5 back until the never-ending beta has come to an end and all of the 4.0 plugins are working again.


Sorry to raise this point, but I think it’s pretty important.

If you can’t use the .DUF you can still use the poser format to import anyway, and the presets are .DSA format. if it don’t work get a refund but would be good to know. As I don’t have DS 4.0

I’m sure a refund won’t prove necessary (I’ve just purchased it) - after all, there’s always Poser Pro 2012.


I can’t try it in D|S 4.0 just yet as the PC is tied up doing a large render, but I will report back when I get the chance.


This is no criticism of your work - it’s good to see the new 4.5 features taken advantage of, and the set looks really exceptional - but I am really surprised that DAZ let this product through testing into the store when it has a (albeit small) dependency on a software version that is still in beta!

I’m stuck I can’t go back to DS4.0 or I would loss a lot of products, yes I thought it would be pass the beta stage to. My philosophy is to be on the newest version as I can, as by the time you spend catching up there’s always something new anyway and you fall behind. DS4.5 is way more friendly to poser users and lets vendors support both programs more easily but DS have the main advantage. The same situation will come up on Friday when the Creation Engineer comes out it was built in DS4.5 that should be somewhere on the promo page. Poser user can grab the V4 version at CP anyway. Yes if you get a chance let me know how it goes with DS4.
Thanks

A quick update: I installed the Poser version and loaded it into DAZ Studio 4 without problems. It renders beautifully in both OGL and 3Delight.


A very nice model.  Great work.

Question…. (cool product by the way, congrats grin ) For about a day there was a suit that goes with it in the store and now it’s totally MIA… keep waiting for it to come back on line but seems DAZ has it on hold for some unknown reason.

If you mean the set shown in the first post, I think the second post applies:
