... Santo and Ryuu will be addons for their original products (so if you don’t have ‘em, get them today

Ok, not sure about what this means. If we purchase Santo/Ryuu for Gen/M4 and want to just use the Genesis version we still need to have/install the M4 version?

Those versions have both the M4 and Genesis installers. You don’t need to install the M4 versions if you don’t want to; however there is an issue with Ryuu where the genesis material presets are calling the M4 files. There’s a update for that (nudges FW again wink ) that fixes it and also adds DS 4.5 compatibility and has better HSS settings. Santo will be getting a similar update. These updated installers will be needed for the M5 addons, as they will have new M5 morphs and textures for the M5 gens.

Edit: Santo has a Genesis only version, so you don’t need to install the M4 version…. But the genesis files and the bundle will be updated for Genesis to set up the materials for the addon.

Is the Ryuu update available now, or is this an upcoming fix? Just wanted to mention that I have both Ryuu and Santo, and they are both excellent. Definitely lots of bang for the buck; I love the multiple heads & bodies.

They’re upcoming updates; I’ll let you know when you can reset your downloads to get 4.5 update. Ryuu should be the next thing to be updated… The M5 addon has to go through the dreaded promo making\acceptance thing. wink

This day went quick!

I’m almost done with the Ashley update (after struggling making decent icons) and since I have Nigel updated, it wouldn’t be right not to update his counterpart, Abigail. It’s nothing major (since female morphs aren’t my strength) but i upgraded her from the genesis female to V5 as a free bonus for the update for DS 4.5. I slightly tweaked her morph as well and uses a custom shape based on the V5 supermodel.

I’ll probably have to make a different main promo for her, since the focus was on the V4, which to be honest, the genesis version was the way stronger morph and was the reason for the product (and why she was accepted). I think the V5 version pretty much blows the V4 morph in the dust, so I probably need to relegate V4 out of the promos.

I’m trying to have this stuff ready for checking Monday, but I’m heading out tonight, so there’s no guarantee on how I feel tomorrow wink.

Anyway, here’s the new Abigail V5 with Nigel..

Anyway, here’s the new Abigail V5 with Nigel..

I noticed that Nigel and Abigail went back on sale at 50% off today as part of the Forbidden Whispers sale, so I finally pulled the trigger and bought her. I have to admit, now that I actually went through and looked at all the images, I like Abigail a lot more. I understand why DAZ used the promo they did—that’s easily the most dramatic and striking of the promo images, but (in my own opinion) it doesn’t necessarily show her to her best advantage. I’m not sure how much I’m going to use her, but I can figure something out, I’m sure.

(Though I will admit that my One Trooo Luuuuv of your female characters is Leena.)

Well I’m glad you got Abigail. I think she has a more spunky look with the regular genesis female shape, but the new V5 one is a lot better. If you haven’t checked out the other thread on our 4.5 updates, she passed QA so she should be close to ready to download later this week. Also a few hours left on getting Nigel or anything else for our store with the sale discount.

(Though I will admit that my One Trooo Luuuuv of your female characters is Leena.)

I like Leena a lot as well, if i wasn’t so keen about fighting to get her V5 counterpart in the store I would have updated her by now. :( However, (cross your fingers), you may see what she looks like now if her updated boyfriend makes it into the store.

... and if you thought Nigel had problems keeping top billing with those new guys, you should see what this guy had fend off… wink

I am looking forward to seeing what you do with him if you get him into the store. I’ve been using Christopher and Tony a fair amount lately, and even Axel himself—along with Leena—snuck into something I did lately (although so far into the background that you can’t really tell).

Thanks. 
A word of caution:  The 1.0 Nigel uninstaller removed parts of the Genesis base figure from my files…I had to reinstall Genesis for it to work properly again.

I just got around to updating Nigel to 1.1. I had this same problem. Thanks to having read you message a few weeks ago, I wasn’t surprised, and I reinstalled Genesis Starter Essentials to recover.
