First I want to say Hey to all and welcome back to the Daz Forums Using my Sports Announcer Voice.

(Great Sports Announcer Voice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_md_8yg9faE)

I am curious to see how many people would like to see a Luke and Laura morph set for Genesis. For those who do not know Luke and Laura were or rather still are the Millennium Kids Young Teens. They were some really great products but did not get a lot of third party support.

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/millennium-kids-young-teens

I have tried to get some nice Young Teens using the Genesis Morphs I have. But have not been satisfied with the the results. Mixing any of the Adult characters with the Mil Kid has not given me the results I am looking for. I would like some non toon characters

I would also like for this to be the first Render Thread of the new Forums but unfortunately the Re-size Image Function is not working. So if have some smaller images or links to some genesis renders that might fit the theme of Young Teen or Late teens please do post them if you please. I will also post some of mine as soon as they are ready to go on either Deviant Art or Renderosity.

TZORG actually has a Laura and Madison that she customized herself. But unfortunately, she knows that she can’t properly configure them or sell them for business ownership reasons…


But yeah, either way, as much as I too would love to see it, I wouldn’t hold my breath for it. DAZ made it clear that the lack of sufficient sales is what made them rethink making the Teens 4. Instead, all we get for Genesis is an intermediary shift between base character and the Basic Child Shape.

I, for one, hope that they will reconsider at least enough to add the Luke, Laura, Matt and Maddie clone shapes to Autofit.  There’s a lot of really good kids clothes out there for them that I’d love to use on Genesis.

You know I thought a New version of David was a lost cause. Now we have the a Nice David Shape and the add on for Autofit plus the rest of the Gen3 Lineup.

I would also like to see a new teen figure shape based on Luke and Laura. What I want most of all is the autofit for that shape so I can transfer some of the clothing.

I’d like to see this as well.  Unlike a whole new figure (as in Gen 3) or even a set of morphs for M4/V4, getting them as Genesis shapes with autofit clones means instant support for the shapes, as well as other Genesis shapes being able to use their clothes.  I think the reception that the Gen 3 shapes for Genesis have received indicates how well these would be received.

I’ve found that AdamR’s free proportion morphs (here), in combination with a mix of quite a few others (mostly, but not entirely, from the Evolution morphs) work much better for teens than the Child shape.  Here’s something I threw together a while back.

Not interested in the giant leap backwards that is “Genesis 2”.

I am currently working on a “Basic Youth” set for Genesis which will include both a teen girl and teen boy shape.  These have been in development for a while now and so should be surfacing in about another month, just finalizing some of the extra included morphs and the new texture sets, of which there will be one each for the boy and for the girl.


The boy will look much more boyish than in the preview below—he just has a V4 texture in this image, because his isn’t finished yet,  but this shows the basic shapes.  These have all new joint parameters and any Genesis clothing will fit them perfectly.


Soon. wink

I think MallenLane might be the one to petition about MilTeen and MilKids autofit clones and/or Genesis shapes. Even though he no longer works for DAZ, he seems to still have a relationship with them such that they would let him make and sell the clones. (And I think he made the original characters as well.)

I’d love to see Luke & Laura shapes for Genesis, and the teens you’re working on look great, Thorne!

TZORG is a guy! 

Love to see all the kids and teens from Gen 3 and 4 made, that way we can bring over the clothing too!  I have Adzan’s Butterbumble for the Gen 3 kids and would love to use them on Genesis!  Cute set!

Those teens look great, Thorne.

Too bad they’re not due out for a month, as I could use them about now.  (I’m trying the June Camp NaNoWriMo, and about 1/3 of my core cast is under 16)  Of course, I can always rework the artwork, so long as I keep the basic coloring. wink

Toss my vote in for L&L as well, plus some of the other figs not yet supported.  I, for one, have a LOT of stuff that was made for V1/V2 and M1/M2, and it would be nice to get direct support for mil-kids preteens.She Freak, Vitorio and the gen 3 mil baby..

Well, the difference with David was that he was a popular character as, just like Stephanie to Victoria, he was a proportional alternative to Michael. However, like I said in the Stephanie 4 Genesis Shape thread, MallenLane explained to me in a PM one time when I ask about why there was no David 4, that he felt like there was no longer a need for David with all the morphs that Michael 4 had. Of course, I can’t stress how much a beg to differ, but that’s the unfortunate reality of the matter. I can only hope there is enough need in Genesis for a S5 as it would open the possibility for a D5.

Those are other figures I wouldn’t wait around see either. Anything prior to Gen 3 and all the side Gen 3 characters (basically any thing that’s not the main couples like Victoria & Michael, Stephanie & David, Aiko & Hiro, and Girl & Freak) is completely kicked to the crub . Though She-Freak is a DAZ Original and is a female counterpart to the Freak, DAZ also references her in the Victoria 5 description as something that we can customize for ourselves, indicating that any further official support for her is unnecessary.
