I simply can not believe there isn’t a huge thread for this yet.  SERIOUSLY the BEST character made for Genesis so far.  The body fur, the face options, the skin quality… YUMMY.  Actually reminds me of ... yea, I know here I go getting tacky…. a porn star I liked looking at (not for his junk either but because he is just dreamy good looking with a bit of a bad boy thing going) named Randy.  Same sort of body hair.  If they would have used a wavier hair style on him might have thought it was a digital him. 

Anyway, here is Nigel.  Check it out.

Damn you! For guessing the source of our inspiration for all our male characters! The secrets blown….. Now we’ll have to retire! tongue wink Hehe.

I’m so pleased you like him & can’t wait to see what renders you all make with him.

Well with my constantly making freebie content I MIGHT have time to play with him… lol Just supporting and cheerleading!  lol

OH and folks… this team rocks… they made two versions.  One for DS 4.0 and one for 4.5 so no one using the older version of 4.0 is left out in the cold.

Just wondering if PA’s would be interested in shipping the textures with options for no brows and such.  In DS, the movement to “real hair” is becoming more popular and having the “painted” hair is a problem.  It would be very nice to have completely hairless textures so that those using polygon hair, or the upcoming LAMH, can work without impediment.

I think that’s a good idea.  My update for Bruno has a fully hairless face option!  *soon*  raspberry

He uses M4s UVs. He was originally meant to be an add-on for the original M4 version. But instead, we totally reworked the entire textures and updated the morphs to be used with Genesis/M5. These textures are completely reworked and clearer and more detailed than the ones in the M4 version.

All of our skills have improved since the previous Nigel was released. So we thought we’d revamp/upgrade one of our best selling males for the Genesis marketplace.

He has also been updated to DS 4.5 as well for total forward-compatilibilty.

Yeah I messaged FW earlier and said “You forgot to add it in the description!” ohh

We try to add those in all of our products, which is why I wanted our guys updated to M5. As FW said earlier, Nigel was supposed to be an addon, but the genesis textures got reworked and then I started reworking the morphs I originally created, including rebuilding the Nigel morph from scratch (Blame the Chandler and Miles morphs, Nigel couldn’t be outdone) and then we added the conversion of the product for DSON (DS 4.5)... so he really became a separate product from the original, which allowed us to include and build upon since he was made from the original DS 4 betas and way before GenX (The best morph really was the genesis version and I had to send it back to M4… never will do that again).

So we’re restraining ourselves and Santo and Ryuu will be addons for their original products (so if you don’t have ‘em, get them today! The new Ryuu morphs are a departure from the original and Santo, let just say you’re gonna like where I’m goin with the addon).

Then finally Axel, our first product at DAZ, is getting a M5 reimagining as well. Because there was so many morphs from him, I had to reduce the cast :( (can’t leave Axel though), but with the new guys I just finished, I don’t think you’ll miss them much. wink

Then we can finally work on the original M5s.

In the meantime, here’s some promos that didn’t make the cut (ran out of slots):

Ah. So, just to be clear: if we buy him now but are running 4.0.3.47, we should hold off on installing the new Nigel to keep from messing up old Nigel until we’re running 4.5? (I like old Nigel too much to mess him up, meself.)

As a matter of purest curiosity, I hope this doesn’t sound crass, but is there any sort of discount for purchasers of previous-edition Nigel, since he came out less than a year ago (just barely) and was also for Genesis? I get that there’s a lot more Nigel to love (... OK, that came out wrong) and at 50% off now, I don’t hugely care. Just curious.

you can install the 4.0 version now, the 4.5 version will overwite the morphs; though you may need want to remove or rename the directory in People->Genesis->Characters->Male_M3dia so that you don’t get confused with the presets. Or you can just set the uninstall flag so that it will remove nigel when you’re ready to upgrade.

Also if you have the Genesis/M4 version, the morphs and textures in this product are in separate directories, so you won’t lose the original morphs or textures.

No, there’s no discount this time around. Plus, like you said 50% off is a great discount anyway. smile

The entire figure has been reworked, including the textures. So he’s basically a whole new character. A Nigel 2.0 if you will. Just, this version is purely for Genesis and requires M5 to work. Whereas the old Nigel only needed Genesis or M4 (if you so choose). We would have offered an additional discount if he was merely a morph update, or just a texture update. But not both.

How the hell did I get unsubscribed from my own thread??  OMG… the dreaded forum curse has followed us here!  lol  

I’m not sure who you morphed him after but it’s a very likable face, all iterations of it.  The body hair is absolutely gorgeous.  Of course I don’t see much on the arms or legs from the promos but now that I have Zev0’s product doesn’t much matter!  lol Not installed him yet, am working on my hair pack and getting it ready to use more universally as well as watching a web thing ... the thread is here in the Commons: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/7480 

Back to work.  Thanks for the fabulous old character made new again!  I thank you, Genesis thanks, the bird that just pooped on my railing thanks you….. *off to throw something at it*  lol
