Yes, I’ve got all the tuts, models, etc. from the site.  Missed the bit about custom doors, though - I’ll take another look, thanks.

I see the doors, etc. are all .car files, so if I do a custom model, I guess it must be saved as .car?

For medieval, I guess you would make it as close as you could with Architools then save as .obj and modify?

EDIT:  Darn time zones - went to the link for the advance pack and sure enough, it was $32 - yipee.  Went downstairs to get my credit card, had a cup of coffee, came back and it was back to $69 - talk about bad timing - missed by two minutes - sheesh

hya roy

re advance pack - there was talk n the commons about them giving a little leeway re buying things as the site keeps crashing - just send em a mail and tell em you live in deepest darkest africa or soemthing smile and say that everytime you logged on they were down - which they probably were .....

I had a go at making my own windows yesterday - just round ones - the trick is to have them oriented in modeling room correctly

eg if you make a round iwnow from a cylinder you have to stand it up then spin it around - assuming you make it laying flat - just open an included car file of a window then chack out the orientation in the mesh room I guess.

ah medieval… come to think of it I have so many old buildings I could do a medievel city smile
i just use a warp modifier to make then crooked ....

im in interestedto see what people do with this

re advance pack - baker is very handy as is the normal map thingy

Same here. The published artist 50% banner is still displayed, but the sale is gone. I hadn’t thought about inagoni/architools when I was going through the catchup. Oh well.

I had my 4 year old this weekend. from the minute she gets up until she goes to bed, I dont have much time. I hadn’t even thought to check in here. Ill just wait and see when it comes around again. As a content creator and game designer, it looks very, very useful.

ME TOO - forgot it was end of month and sale probabaly ending.
But I think the advance pack is still a bit cheape to buy from Daz than Inagoni for same items.

By the way has Daz stopped emailing notifications of wishlist items on sale ??

Yes.

Actually the new sh..opping-system stopped a lot of things which made shopping here fun.

If you’re not into the new system be aware that you are no longer notified if you buy something you already bought. If you bought a lot check your itemized order history before buying something.

I managed to get it (just in time..)
So I’ve started to get familiar with the interface.
So I thought I should create a castle.. smile
Some of you might recognize where I got the inspiration from….

I am with you, I wanted it and we had too much Life happen, the website was down, I had no access right after and then it slipped my mind.

Yeah - don’t know whether these bargains are announced in the weekly newsletter?  i haven’t had one since the new shop went live - have reported several times, re-set my subscription - no action done to fix, although they keep closing the ticket as solved.:(

Hi Roy

they just said everything was 50 percent off or what ever it was - they didnt actually mention this product tho.
Think of all the money you are saving by not getting the weekly newsletter!

And all the money Daz is losing .... considering that you are probably not the only one ...
