Love your pictures Mattymanx! Most especially I love that one at the end, with the two cars in the darkness, their headlights on, and the garage sign lit - did you render this in Daz, or Poser?  It’s very good grin  I don’t yet have that Stonemason set, but now I see I probably do need it after all lol -Cathy

It’s been a while since that $1.99 PC sale was open for everyone. 

I say my credit card had more than enough time to recuperate.  cool grin

Stonemason’s products are very, very tempting…

Yes, Stonemason’s products are always tempting.  I had to set myself a strict limit of two for today, and it was not an easy choice.

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

Kinich - 30 August 2012 01:11 PM

I don’t have Streets of Asia 2 but do have the original, the set (SOA 1) consists of the main preloaded scene, a smaller scene just featuring the central courtyard area and 8 props (Blossom Patch, Blossom Strip, Column C, Column Small, Column Tall, Fence, Lantern & Pot Plant)

Screen shot below.

And above that is a little something I put together using SOA a while back.

Ive always LOVED that render.

Stonemason is always tempting, but this time around I had to put my money (or cc at least) where my mouth has been and buy cool ethnic/historical outfits from Mec4D. :)

Stonemason Day!  I’m hoping someone with one or both of these sets can help me - I’m trying to decide between Streets of Asia I and II, and noticed in the description that Streets of Asia II seems to consist only of preloads for Daz Studio and Poser - does this mean that none of the separate parts such as the potted plants can be moved or added separately?  And are both sets like that?  I LOVE these sets, but I do sort of like to move things around to make it more unique… Thanks for any help or advice!  -Cathy


I have Streets of Asia 2 - it loads as one big preset but you can then move and delete elements to your heart’s content. smile I’ve done two quick renders of the set - the first is the vanilla version while the second has some elements moved and some removed. Lots of fun. cool smile

You’re welcome (sorry about the delay this time, I’m in the UK so bit of a time difference). The ‘Gremliny guys’ (and a few Gals) are all Predatrons Goblins with various add on packs available here in the store (Predatrons Store - http://www.daz3d.com/shop/predatron ).

Thanks MJ007, I’ve always like that render even after a couple of years and not to mention the time it took to set up as it was rendered in a single pass, the load time (or load times as I put it together from several small vignettes composited into a single scene before rendering) alone was longer than some of my renders.

Despite my wail of anguish I simply couldn’t resist Stonemasons Ruins 3 & 4, eventually they’re going to be half buried by snow and ice.

That was rendered in DS3 x64 back in April 2010.  In short there are 22 people and 5 cars.  You can get more details about it and the other images over DeviantART - http://mattymanx.deviantart.com/gallery/ - There are also a few more renders with Stonemason sets that I did not post here.

Love, love, love Stonemason’s work.
But can only afford it once a year.
I am happy it is now.
Urban Future 4 is finally mine.  smile

Thank you, Daz, for moving the PA sale forward from November (where it’s been for several years, at least) to September.  It’s been a bad year, and with this sudden change, I have no money saved for the sale. So this customer will be spending little or nothing this year.  I was hoping to pick up several older products I’d like, but I guess I’ll have to wait until another time (and hope they’re still available).  angry

My money is safe today.

Stonemason is one of those vendors I never question whether to buy now or wait till a later sale, unless it’s a modern ruin (since I don’t do modern or apocalyptic scenes).  Consequently, I’ve already purchased everything I want.  Except for Winter Kingdom, which I so much want ... but is DS only.

I fully expect most products released during the sale to be ... as usual ... Genesis only.  So, I expect to purchase very little. 

I did wishlist some products on release during the year that I thought I’d purchase during the PA sale, but it’s hard to commit to a purchase now that I’m so used to not spending money at DAZ.
