Paolo Ciccone over at Pret produces training vids with Daz loadable lessons and then when one attempts to test something, one finds out that some things are no longer available. This situtaion makes me want to toss all the stuff I’ve bought here out the window, or maybe I’ll just give it away. Daz get your act together! You can’t keep undermining your customers and expect them to be happy. All you do is piss them off.  Reup what your customers need. You can spare the few mb on a hard disk somewhere I am sure.

Sometimes things get made “unavailable” because they dont work in the latest version of something, the original artist has decided they want it retired, or DAZ has decided to retire it. It would be Paolo’s responsibility to update the videos in the case where that happens or create items on their own for use with their training. DAZ3D has no affiliation with or control over what someone on another site may or may not use. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Sorry Jaderail, but your explanation falls flat on its face.

As far as I am concerned the fault lies squarely with Daz, no matter what you or its representatives might say.

The product was available until just recently so it obviously worked with Daz4.5. As far as I know the artist(s) (Redhouse - Jack Tomalin) never asked for it to be retired. As a matter of fact Jack has asked to have it reinstated (just read up a few posts).

Daz unthinkingly removed it when they reshuffled their “store” under the new “management” team and I do use the term management very loosely. The Daz team needs to learn the concept of customer service pretty darn soon, or there won’t be any customers. Then, senior management can kiss their bonuses goodbye.

Can’t thank you enough Jack.  It is an excellent prop. I really like the stained glass window even though the glass is only 1 poly thick (at least according to Paolo over at Pret).

One quick thing though, what is the freebie index thread? Is it in the Discussion Forum? If not, how does one access it?

Sorry for being such a pain.

Well I think it would have been a PlatClub freebie back in the day.. and there is an index in the Members Only forum of all the PC freebies we have.  But that said, I can’t recall how the originally was distributed.. anyway, here it is.. Radiance of Spirit enjoy smile

The date on the readme is 2006, so it’s pretty old.. no wonder I can’t recall much about it lol

I got it from the Weekly Freebie Archive (before it disappeared) - I still love it! Here’s an image I made quite a long time ago
(And thanks for resusitating it for those who didn’t get the chance to grab it earlier…)
Incidentally the old file name was ps_fr258_Radiance.exe, if that jogs any memories.

Actually this was hosted in the old freebie archive, not in the store, so hasn’t been available for download since DAZ “updated” their website to magento more than 1 year ago, way before there was even a DS4.5…

But anyway it’s a really nice prop and it’s good to see it available again, thanks Jack smile

The fault is not squarely with DAZ.  Reality is not owned by DAZ and is not even sold here in the store.  If Paolo makes a video tutorial, it is really his responsibility to see that any files provided. 

The use of free item is in a tutorial is a risk.  Freebies and even for pay items come and go all the time.  Before finding fault with DAZ when they may not even have been aware the tutorial even used the item, did you contact the maker of the tutorial and inform them that the product they used is not longer available and could he/she recommend an alternative.

Wow, what a beautiful set!!! No surprise Jack is among my favourite prop-makers smile. Thank you! I’d love the rest of the old freebie archive moved here so generously.
