Need advice: Genesis shapes vs Gen 4 figures
Life has had me preoccupied for a few years and I've been gone from 3D art for the duration of Generation 4 but Daz is sucking me back in with a vengeance.
First, my pics tend to be high population sci-fi city scapes so I don't need lots of up close detail.
My problem is I'm cheap. I can't even admit to frugality at this point in my life, I'm simply cheap. So my quandary is this; do I spend this sale getting caught up on the Gen 4 figures, or do I get the shape addons for Genesis?
So these are what I'm considering;
1) M4, V4, S4, F4, A4 and G4 Starter packs
2) Genesis Starter pack, M4 & V4 Shapes, Gen4 Shapes, 4++ morphs, and Gen 3 Iconic Shapes.
Pros : 1) Lots of extras and no ambiguity about whether I get all the best out of the figures.
2) Swap clothes between shapes and maximize the overall variability between individuals
Cons: 1) More expensive and specialized
2) Less body textures and requires further addon of Gen X to utilize character morphs
Please help. I have only one day left to get this right :) I can't seem to find a definitive answer saying that M4, V4, A4, F4 (etc.) base figures are no longer required? Do I need 4++ Morphs or do I just get more Genesis morphs? While I'm certain there are still advantages to be gained from owning the base figures, are there any real drawbacks to holding off or foregoing them all together?
Lots of questions and I hope this isn't simply a rehash of an old topic. I spent the night searching and couldn't find anything.
Thanks in advance,
