I am very confused. The Gen 4 items are still on sale, yes? And the savings are supposed to be 50% until it ends, correct? But the prices I am seeing in that category range from 30% to 65% off. And these are older items, too, not the ones in the daily sale (which appear to be nearly all Genesis, btw) so I can’t be mistaking them for that. So which is the right discount?

Hi Byrdie! 30% reflects the normal DO items Platinum Club discount. The 50% off is for non-P C members. 65% items are 50% items plus another 15% discount for P C members. A quick look through the Gen4 items that are 30% seem to be things that are both for some Gen3 and Gen4 fits. My guess is that some of those dropped to 30% when the Gen3 sale ended. They should set these back to the full sale price.

Ah, the usual between-sales mixup. Hope it gets sorted before the Gen 5 stuff comes up, got a couple V4/M4 things I still haven’t managed to buy.

Please bring back the alert that tells you is you have already purchased something.  Those of us who buy a lot can loose track after a couple of years.

The whole top half of this page: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/people?compat_figures=27&top_vendor=95
And several of the items on this page: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/people?compat_figures=26&top_vendor=95
...are missing from the 4th Gen sale. (As posted previously, I have my eye on the Photo Realism Bundle in particular)

You’ll need to contact DAZ via support ticket. I got about 30 items added to the sale that way.

Customer Appreciation Sale - Michael 5 and Victoria 5

I’m eyeing these Pro Bundles for the characters quite covetously (as well as hundreds of dollars worth of other merchandise) and I’m wondering if the generation 5 characters will take the generation 4 textures.  Any feedback anyone can offer on this would be much appreciated.

Yes, Genesis (in any shape) will take any gen4 texture.

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

They take Gen 4 textures as well as Genesis does, since M5 and V5 are morphs (and alternate UV maps, which you don’t have to use) for Genesis. smile

Customer Appreciation Sale - Michael 5 and Victoria 5

M5 Pro Bundle is great! I love basically everything in it. I don’t own the V5 bundle because I already have several of the included products that interest me, and (much to M5’s dismay, I’m sure) I don’t have a strong need for the geo-grafted genitalia.

I’m actually in the process of rendering V5 and M5 in each of the textures I own, including several V4 and M4 textures, just as a quick comparison/reference. Here are a couple of quick examples, since I have them handy and thought you might find them helpful. V5 Supermodel in Elite Marie, and M5 wearing the default M4 texture. If there’s a specific texture you’re curious about, let me know…on the off chance I own it I’ll post a render of it on V5 or M5.

The light set I used is the one that comes with Chablis (a nice character to have for V4 and Genesis, especially because of the included lights…I use them all the time). Surface settings are default for each texture.

Edit: oops, meant to post the posed version of V5 with Elite Marie texture.

Thanks Scott.  They look fantastic.  Sigh - so much for my resolution not to spend so much on 3D!  That M5 heroic face and body is just too alpha male to pass up!!!
