Very cool - you should totally post it to my other thread, when you get a chance. Id love to see it!

http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/8146/

(just because Im not giving proper attention to this thread, coz of my newest release lol but if u guys want to post renders of any of my stuff, you can do that in my new release thread too)

Hey Ignis,
  Are you planning any Dragon themed items in the (near) future?  They’re kinda Serpentine grin  Especially the Eastern Dragon.  For some reason he never got any love.  Ya know, I bet some “Spirited Away” kind of dragon stuff might sell well.  I know that Alexa and I would buy some E Dragon stuff.  For instance, I made the SubDragon Hairs mustache match the E Dragon, but some E Dragon fitted mustaches, and armor, and tack, and ...

Just some ideas.

I could not resist this thread, or the outfit.
They were both simply too powerful.

Good morning guys!

@ Kendall - well, I dunno how much ED stuff Ill be doing in the future. These days, more often than not, I prefer to kind of make my own figures. And yah…. I do have *something* along those lines planned. Well, not an eastern dragon, but, something. But its like everything…. depends on when I will actually get to it lol Ive got a very long list of projects that could keep me going for 5 yrs or longer. And it gets added to constantly.

Ippotamus—Awww ty!!! I hope you have fun with them! Pop back in when u can and show us what you do with it smile

Well I am thinking of doing a conversion. I am honestly not sure when I will get to it however. I started working on a new set, so my attn is pretty diverted to that atm. I really need to clone myself LOL I would get soooooo much accomplished then!

But I will say folks have had absolutely beautiful results converting this version to Genesis. Especially if when converting the boots, you use no template (as Ive been told using the boots template, will cause the icky crunching to occur) Everything else converts pretty straightforwardly (as I did a test run in the other thread)  I used hair as the template for the hat, bodysuit for the choker and eyescope, and shirt for shirt, pants for pants.

I understand well that sentiment of wanting to move on with new things, I’m just the same. And I have the conversion plugin as well, but one can always hope smile

Well I am playing with the boots. And yah, I still get the crunchy results. So Im trying an alternate route, to see if I can get something better. If I can, I will post the results for the DS/Genesis peoples

Ok I played around… and yah, using the auto-fit conversion, there is just no way its going to be perfect. I played with the weight maps and everything. The problem lies in the fact the default boot is not fitted to Genesis (but V4 instead, whose stance and foot size is quite a bit different) so the crunching occurs.

Best option here is for me to do a full conversion of it.

Oh there was one more thing I forgot….

The gun.

Eden’s Flame originally had a Steampunk Blunderbuss to it (with a special FX layer on it, to make it shoot fire - hence the name Eden’s Flame) It was intended to have this as well as poses for it. However, I dropped it in the end, because I had such little time to get this done for the PA sale.

I am considering releasing it as a freebie, however. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to texture it atm…...

So I like to do fun stuff. I propose this…. what I am thinking is a group effort from interested parties…. to create diff textures for it… some special FX, maybe some poses.  Whatever floats your fancy. I can even set up a page on my site, giving full credit (as well as hosting) to those who create add-ons for it. ALL the add-ons for it will be added to this page.

What do you guys think??? Who wants to give it a go?

To sweeten the pot, I also propose a contest. The coolest textures for it, get to be saved as default for the prop itself (with credit going to myself for the gun, and who wins for their textures) to be passed out as the main freebie. The Main freebie will be hosted on my own personal store (with a link there to the addon page, displaying all the community addons) again, with full credit.

Rules:
There is only one obvious rule - all content add-ons must be original, and 100% legal to use (by that, I mean resources must be legal, no using photos found on google that may not be ok to use, no idea thieving and whatnot) Even though its not commercial, I am a very by the book kinna person.

You can grab the blunderbuss here:

I really like this set.  I appreciate the hat morphs that help me fit it over hair—thanks!

She included morphs for that?  Geeze, why do I always do things the hard way.  ~shakes head~

Ha!  The morphs may not have been intended for fitting over hair, but that’s what I used them for!  I can’t work magnets well….

No they were lol and it has adjustments that will help with it even more. My biggest reason to make sure they were there, is that I hate it when I cant fit hair under something like that lol

Well now at least I know for next time.  wink

Wow That is a cool Blunderbuss Iggy.  I wish I could texture worth a darn, but I can’t lol.  I’ll just sit here by the sidelines and watch all the fun stuff people create.

Yeah, I really loved the gun… broke my heart having to drop it. But you know, sometimes things happen for a reason. I would love to see what ppl can do with it…. give them a chance to spread their 3D creator wings a little, and have some fun with it. It would definitely be different (to my usual contests and such)

I want the gun!  I debated a dozen times adding a blunderbuss to the scene, but finally decided she wasn’t really the Jayne type raspberry

So, here we have Victoria the IV wearing Eden’s Flame Outfit and wandering around outside The Control Room. 

Texture is Surreality’s Modern Muses Epiphany.

I would be happy to pay for the boots as a single item…everything else works quite well with autofit. It would be great if you could do a conversion for the boots…

Cool gun…

Satira…. love the image and the POV! And yah, its pretty awesome it worked so well with Ann and Frank’s set. It wasnt intended… but it was one of those happy accident type things.

And ty all for the compliments on the gun.

Re: the boots… I knew I was forgetting something lol Well, funny enuff, this was originally only the boots. I ended up modelling the clothes after them, to complete the pack (coz I thought the boots alone was too small of a pack… at the time I guess I wanted something beefier) It sort of turned Steampunk from there. I dunno if I will convert it alone, or as a full set. Still unsure with the time atm, coz I have another I just started (which I am aiming at Nov as a release… the PA sale being moved sort of messes up christmas finances a little, so figured Id have a new one then)
