Well I asked before how long does each sale last and did not see a reply to it so I missed Stone Masons sale.

Hoping they have a catch up PA sale at the end.

The announcement page pointed to by the link in the first message of this thread indicates that all sales will be one “DAZ Day” long - roughly from the time the sale starts on any given day until midnight the next day.

That’s vague unless you know when it starts.

I think that’s the idea.

I’m guessing it’s a strategy to scare us into buying things on sale right as we see them since we don’t any longer know when the sale will end.

Which would be a horrible strategy — companies that abuse their customers, however subtly, rarely profit by it.  The end-of-sale date issue is one of the few remaining to be resolved before I’d feel comfortable promoting the store with much more than “DS4.5Pro render”.

So far, as far as I can tell, the sales are ending at midnight DAZ-time on the day after they are released (barring special extensions, as Mec4D offered). Hence the uncertainty - the exact length of the sale depends on what point during the day the items are released. Sales should not last less than 24 hours, in any event.

Is it intended that

Cowboy Gumdrops Genesis
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/new-releases/cowboy-gumdrops-genesis

is allready back to full price.

- Other PA items released (even on Day 1) are still at 50% or went down to 30%.

A price jump from 50% to full price seems rather a harsh punishment for being late to the party one day.

- - -

I do realize that one day sales are supposed to be an encouragement to buy items as soon as they are released.

If I could ask for one thing though it would be a timer on product pages that indicates how long the sale will still be on.

For customers in different timezones this would be really helpful to tell how long the DAZ Day is going to last.

In my first year with DAZ I was happy to log in each day and grab every item. In the long run it turned out more efficient to just log in once a week on sundays an buy the highlights of the week and install them in one session.

Very nice and I’d just convinced myself I didn’t need this character. What do the webbed feet/legs come from?

Mada’s Ranaki or Ranaka provide the frog legs. They’re Gen4, but evidently can be fitted to genesis.

No, Cowboy Gumdrops should still be at a discount.  I may have just misstated that when I originally submitted. I’ll contact DAZ and see if we can’t get that fixed right away.

Thanks for pointing it out!

Thanks all.
anikad JOdel is correct they are the Ranaka legs, I used the transfer utility to autofit them, they convert very well considering the flippers.
