I must say, once again, I don’t know what I’d do without Daz Dynamics :D

This was done using:

Dynamic Medieval Bundle http://www.daz3d.com/dynamic-clothing/dynamic-medieval-bundle
Dynamic Fantasy Robe http://www.daz3d.com/dynamic-clothing/dynamic-fantasy-robe
And a few freebies from Martin’s site (star trek shirt and one of the freebie pants sets) http://www.optitex-dynamiccloth.com/

A little deformer work was used on the hood (I really need to practice on that more, lol), to help it fit around the hair.

In most cases, textures are my own :D

I got to play with wind direction for this one. I’m using the free burka gown (http://www.optitex-dynamiccloth.com/FreebieDownload14.php) and the dynamic fantasy robe (http://www.daz3d.com/dynamic-clothing/dynamic-fantasy-robe). Textures are mine :D

There doesn’t seem to be much new in the dynamic line.  And nothing on Martin’s site, either…free or pay.  It’s been a long time since Martin has made an appearance, too.  I hope he’s OK.

Yeah…. I always buy as many things as I can get for ds dynamics….but there’s hardly anything :( I was going to request something like this medieval outfit, but for Daz Studio:
Unsolicited Commercial link removed

While the optitex Maiden faire is a wonderful outfit, it’s missing those long, drapey sleeves and puffed shoulders.  In fact, i didn’t see any optitex outfits with long drapey sleeves (other than the kimono which is of course a completely different style.  I have the sleeves and such, but the most drapey sleeves are a bit short.

I’d buy a medieval dress as shown above, in an INSTANT if it had a DS dynamic version, as I am an avid dynamics user.  I even “upgraded” to 4.6 to use dynamics again (even though consider 4.6 to be a downgrade more than an upgrade. UG. HATE 4.6 with a passion for breaking everything and being, in general, near-useless).  And even in 4.6 dynamics don’t work as well as they USED to work in 4.5 So sad)

Point being, MARTIN COME BACk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We needs more dynamics.  As long as i still have two pennies i buy your dynamics so come back raspberry

And yes i looked at Martin’s optitex freebies and store page, and also nothing there like the hivewire poser dynamic outfit!!! 

Just think, to me, the reason we wanted dynamics was specifically for things like this- drapey sleeves and skirts and such….

EDIT 11/23/2013 :  Just in case someone misunderstands the “something like this” let me clarify that I’m not asking for a copy, a replicate, a duplicate, or the same outfit. I’m looking for a similar STYLE dress- with long draped sleeves.  Hopefully that looks a bit renaissance or even better, could pass as renaissance or raphaelite depending on style tweaks.

Um?? What the heck? Why was my link removed?

It was not a “commercial” and we were told when Daz did the whole “no commercial thing” that we were still allowed to link to other stores and items if it wasn’t commercial. And if the big whole “DEAR OPTITEX PLEASE MAKE THIS IN THE DAZ STORE SO I CAN BUY IT” didn’t tip ya off, I’m not sure what will!

Daz, are you SERIOUSLY afraid of other stores so much that we’re not allowed to even compare to an item (that won’t work in Daz and therefore asking for a DS version)???

I did NOTHING absolutely NOTHING against the rules so its highly offensive when my link is removed!  Seriously, Daz wants to drive people away???  It’s like you guys want me to go shopping at Hivewire and use Poser instead, since you block and overmod things that ask for DS versions as well.  Sheesh, Daz!!!

Guess its kinda pointless to ask for anything here since it’ll just get modded away into the void.

Nasty tactics around here lately. At least other stores still allow fair discussion and links. 
*shakes head* You’d think you’d be you know, supportive of customers trying to get more Daz Studio content. But no, this kind of stuff? pushes us away from Daz, over to Hivewire and Renderosity, and to using programs like Poser.  you know, to use the dress there, since you won’t let me post about it and ask for here!!!

And what’s the deal? about “unsolicited”?

So basically, I need to get someone to come in here, and gamely ask, “gee, what kind of outfit are you looking for?” and then I’m allowed to post the link, but not before?

Aren’t we going overboard Daz?  It was pretty clear that it was not a commercial in anyway.

If it was a direct link to a product in another store, DAZ removes them.  I found the only way around it is to list the name of the store, the vendor, and the product name.  That way if some is really interested, they have what they need to go find it themselves.

Daz has said when they changed the commercial rules that a link to another store product IS ALLOWED as long as it wasn’t commercial (such as a thread to just promote something.) but this was CLEARLY NOT THE CASE!  It was entirely within the rules and not only that, requesting a DAZ version. Furthermore, without the link, there is no picture, so I can’t actually ask for optitex to make a Daz version anymore now can i?

That basically leaves no recourse.  Gee, may as well go to hivewire, buy the dress, and use poser, for all that Daz welcomes legitimate product suggestions.

No, actually we are allowed to post links to other stores if this isn’t commercial promotion or if the item shown as a reference or just came up in conversation. Also for example, if I’m listing or asked to list items used for the scene and some of them are from Renderosity, I can fully post links to Renderosity items as well, as they are just references of what I used, among others.

Here is a confirmation
Quote:

Q: So we _can_ link other products in non-commercial threads as long as it doesn’t violate common sense and purpose of this thread?
DAZ_BHowell’s asnwer: Yes… we don’t view a link in a thread somewhere that comes up in a conversation the same as a promotional thread in a designated “commercial” section.

I have no stakes in this argument but I think the link in this thread was a very clear example of 3rd party product used as a reference (to ask to make similar DS dynamic product which is what this thread is about), that just came up in conversation and it was deleted unlawfully.

I’m not trying to pick a fight.  I just know that I’ve had a couple of links deleted.  Last link I had deleted was a link to Mec4d’s DSON UV script.  After that, I just gave up giving links.  It was easier than trying figure out when I was just providing information and when I was putting up something that was considered commercial.

Given how little Dynamics have progressed over the years since DAZ announced them way back when V4 was released, finding an inexpensive copy of Poser 9 or better might not be a bad idea.  You would have access to a new aspect of dynamics.  It’s not a complete solution but it gives you another tool in your toolbox.

Neither do I. I just think that people who are deleting links tend to forget that we are allowed to post those links and have to be provided with a confirmation that we do allowed to post links to 3rd party products in quite many situations. Posting link as a reference to desired to be made item seems to be one of such situations.
It is surely much easier to just delete all 3rd party links in bulks without remembering if this one or that one is an allowed exception or not but this is not what the policy is about.

icprncss, There’s the rub isn’t it?

I actually HAVE poser 9. And considered buying the Hivewire outfit.

But here I was, trying to give Daz and Optitex a chance to come up with their own version because, well in general, it’s much easier to keep all my art pipeline in one program as opposed to going daz to poser and then back.  But apparently even asking for Daz product and giving a reference is threatening to Daz.  I really don’t get it. Like I said, and as Kattey helpfully pointed out, I was well within the rules and examples set for linking outside of Daz Studio.  I’d really appreciate if who ever unhelpfully removed my link would helpfully put it back.

And yes, Kattey, exactly.

There is the rub in all this.  Where is the line and has someone decided to move it again?  That and who interprets where the line is?

I got what I call “whacked with a rolled up news paper” back during the PC anniversary because I posted a link to the product that had been here at one time and was now elsewhere.  It was simply meant to give information to the OP but it was interpreted as commercial. 

I don’t know anymore and I’m pretty much giving up.  The forums used to be fun back in the day.  Now…never mind.
