There is a sense of the inevitable with the word “eventually”... it has a gravitas about it that “soon” does not possess.

I like ‘in the fullness of time’ for gravitas wink

Yes, but “in the fullness of time” truly means “never”, while “soon” usually doesn’t, although it seems that way.

Talk about “gravitas”... that expression borders on the “biblical”. Even though we do tend to go overboard in Dystopia, we only make attempts at “epic” scale. We’re not quite ready to wax biblical just yet…

There’s an interesting thread over at the Team-Dystopia forums, where we are now apparently open to suggestions for Weapons Cache 3. I thought we were just building stuff and then bundling them together for release. But now it appears that there is an open development thread… which is really very cool, but I’m worried that we won’t be able to please everyone. A lot of gun enthusiasts and future weapons technologist have weighed in, so it makes for really interesting reading.

That thread coupled with another thread on extra-terrestrials that’s got our xenobiologists cooking up new aliens, spells how to create a new species and then how to effectively eliminate them. Disturbing, but fascinating stuff.

Cheers! — Möe

I love the new weapons just like I love all the Dystopia sets! I’m in the midst of writing a new sci-fi novel and every bit of Dystopia fits perfectly. I can hardly wait to see what you guys come up with next… I’m sure I’ll find that I have a desperate and immediate need for it!

You mentioned a forum for Dystopia… Is that just for developers or is it fans too? If it’s for fans/users, could you send me a link? smile

ok, hate to be a bit of a downer as I like the Dystopian product line, but… it seems I already had these.
At least most of them.  I now have two different directories for the Viborra, Cleaver, and several others.  Is it just Pack one that was previously available?

I was looking forward to adding new weapons to the cache too (I do not believe in too much variety).

Do you mean Dystopian Weapons Cache 1? As it says on the product page:

These weapons were previously released as freebies at the Team Dystopia website. They have been modified (converted to the DAR system) and are presented here in hopes that you can all enjoy them as much as we do.

I do believe that the second pack is completely new. smile

Yes, I meant Cache 1.  I did not see that on the product page, sorry.  Ok, so I did already have them then, and have not completely lost my mind yet.

Thank you.

No, sir… you haven’t completely lost your mind… and these re-released weapons do have some significant upgrades aside from improved textures. With the introduction of the Dystopian Accessory Rail (DAR) system in the Cache 2 pack, tyger_purr made the excellent decision to go back in and modify some of the legacy freebies to make use of the DAR. It was actually a lot of work, with no real pay back for him because these are still freebies. The hope here is that the freebies will generate enough interest and get folks interested in the commercial release. grin

Personally, I’d suggest you replace the older freebies with the newer upgrades. Those will get a lot more use once more weapons with DAR compatibility get released. Just a suggestion, of course.

Cheers! - Moe

Just noticed this thread, after snarfing the Cache 1 and Cache 2 last week. I see there was an update to fix a glitch with DAZ|Studio (now downloaded and installed). Are there actual D|S MATs, though? I had a quick look through a few of the Poser MATs, and I don’t think there’s anything in them that couldn’t be done with a properly set up D|S script.

While it is true that these textures have been kept basic and straightforward enough that they should translate to D|S without any problems, I have not had the time to learn D|S so that I could create native MAT files.
