. . . plus several texture sets to choose from — a standard black, a generic green, a basic sand… and of course we had to do a hot pink version.

I’ll bite — why did you have to do a hot pink version?!?  Not that I’m objecting, I particularly like the pink camo (reminds me of hunters in bright orange camo, which actually makes sense if your prey is colorblind).  But why?

The problem is that the PNG is in 4bit color mode.  If you make it 16bit color, or even 24bit color, DS handles it just fine.  Same for if you convert it to a JPG.

Good to know. That will be a much easier fix.

Note, it’s not DAZ Studio that’s crashing.  It’s 3Delight/TDLMake that’s crashing.

Interesting, but from a user standpoint a crash is a crash.

So she can coordinate her outfit?

I found a picture of a scantily clad woman. My wife says she is holding a pink gun but I don’t see it. So it must be the ultimate camouflage.
I don’t think I can post the picture here so you will have to google “pink gun bikini” to see it.

You’re absolutely correct, but from a debugging standpoint all datapoints are useful.  I was trying to help Moebius (and the developers) as much as anything or anyone else. smile

Tyger Purr explained where it came from but, like the Unflatable Pony here, it became something of an ‘in’ joke over on the Dystopia Team forums smile

Pink has actually been used as a legitimate form of camouflage in the real world. During the second world war they painted reconnaissance Spitfires pink as it made it harder to spot against the sun and clouds and they also painted ships pink (with a slight gray tinge) in order to disguise them (though they did stand out rather during bright mid-day sun) as well as desert raiding SAS Land Rovers.

And as WulfricF says it’s so hard to co-ordinate ones outfit when defending ones turf and you need something that goes with that little pink number (though black generally does go with anything wink ).

Oh an instant purchase here.

I wish I could remember, but I think it started out as a joke over on the Team-Dystopia forums… but then when the texture set first emerged for a number of weapons and people started using them in all these “bubblegum” pin-ups… it almost felt logical.

We had a number of scantily clad female operatives with all sorts of gear painted up in pink, what’s to stop them from customizing their guns? With that kind of firepower, not much.

Cheers! — Möe

Picked them up last night but hadn’t had time to play, so thanks adamr001 for the tip on converting the PNGs to 16bit or higher.  wink

Yes, thank you very much to adamr001… I have cropped this error fix into our construction forums so that we can avoid problems of this nature cropping up in the future.

Cheers! — Möe

Looks real great Buddy. Picked up both sets and plan on using them this weekend (if ‘Real Life’ doesn’t get in the way).

Glad to see the Supreme Chancellor again, this gives hope to the populous wink

Rumors about the Supreme Chancellor being deposed were unfounded and untrue, but RealLife™ does have a way of getting in the way big time. tongue laugh

Good to see you again… drop by the forums when you get a chance. And, thank you very much for the support.

Cheers! — Möe
