But these textures can be used by Genesis with no issues.

So what do you want to see for Genesis that isn’t there now?

Or is there a problem implementing these textures for Genesis I don’t know about?

No problem. Simply an example of what I’d like to see for genesis.

I would like a skinpack of middle-range skin tones. I don’t want characters, really. Paying for a character is more expensive than paying for the skin alone, at least it should be in theory!

Dear content creators…

Here’s a very useful visual guide to 1000 years of Vietnamese clothing.

I would love to see some of that gracing my runtime. A lot. Gods you wouldn’t believe how much it would rock.

That’s cool and all but, truth be told, I have not dabbled in textures much and I was wondering if there is an issue with using V4 and M4 textures on Genesis like the seams not matching up or something. If a texture is made specifically for Genesis will it overall be better than one originally made for V4 OR M4? If so, how? (Strictly curious from the perspective of a texture newbie, here.)

That would be cool but it would definitely a niche product. Those are some gorgeous looking outfits, though. A fantasy Korean theme would be cool.

Textures explicitly for Genesis should have fewer problems with smaller details being off such as the crease on fingers or knees.

I’d argue that the trick to it would be to pick one or two specific outfits and then bundle them with a texture and morph.

BTW, you mention ninjas in the first post: Moar ninjas
Also, suits: Morphing Business Suit Bundle

Oh, that’s okay! =-) I’m a skin geek, so I can tell you… I do a lot with skins, and skin quality varies by creator and what application they are using primarily (poser vs daz), and what their lighting set is. Some skins made for earlier models don’t look great on genesis, or were created for poser and require tweaking to look proper and these instructions aren’t always supplied. In general though most skins look ok on genesis without rework.

But for me- a lot of the m4- v4- stuff characters include facial features and body morphs you can’t use with genesis, unless you own gen x and convert them… So for me- I’m paying for a character, and only taking the skin, when, I’d really rather have a geneis version or simply the ski since the features and other character elements aren’t usable.

WANTS: A male expression set. I have bought several for genesis, however, the expressions look great on female genesis (on whom they are moddled in the screenshots), but look kind of goofball on male genesis

A genesis toddler morph (with kid expressions)

A genesis elder morph

I have the request for K4 and elderly requested above but I will add the one for expression morphs for men.

Regular guy shape…. It’s pretty easy to make a muscley guy and also kinda easy to make an overweight guy….but I do struggle just making a “normal” sized guy… also… I need more varied male/young hip morphs.

I usually mix several custom body shapes in each of our guys for M5. Our new guy coming out soon has some shorter body shapes including a slightly stocky one.

Where to start…

Cyber limbs? Sure using the supersuit and older gen things does okay but something created for genesis might be better.  maybe when my skills are better I’ll make some of my own…

various implants could be useful too.

Loose fitting sci fi wear and armour, belts heavy gloves and so on.  It’s a shame xurge doesn’t make for genesis….

How soon is “soon”? Not Daz S**n, I hope. Btw, sent you a PM but the darn thing glitched on me so if you get it more than once, sorry.
