This, btw, is where bugs get reported.

But yes! It would be sweet to get this one fixed, I agree!

Here, btw, is also the bug report done prior to this thread.

You could also file a bug report on bugs.daz3d.com. Just mention the ticket number there so they can work out internally who is doing what. This is a content defect.

How does the whole UV swapping thing work? That basic suit, just being a genesis body with the head lopped off and little booty toes added on in place of the normal ones,  I almost wonder if there’d be a way to load genesis’ uv’s to it?

No idea if that’s possible, Joe. However, if you click on the link to the Bug report in my first post, a guy made a work-around using the full Supersuit UV’s and “repairing” the Basic Suit so the UV map won’t overlap.

I haven’t tried that trick but there is an upside and a downside to it. The upside is (provided I could do it), I could use that for personal use.

The downside is, I could only use it for personal use. Any textures I made with it I would not be able to share. And if I were a Vendor, this would also frustrate me because I wouldn’t be able to sell any textures made for the Basic Supersuit. Which, in the end, makes the Basic Suit practically useless.

P.S: Thanks for the tip, Cridgit! smile

I don’t think there is anything wrong with the UVs. You just need to save each material on a separate UV map.

I don’t know why DAZ didn’t provide templates for it.

You can’t save the UVs seperately because there is only one material section “torso” to add those UVs to! We need a “back” and “front” rather than “torso”.

The problem with doing as suggested in the bug report is that you have to create a new material zone, it doesn’t matter what you do that new MAT zone will have be written into the figures main DSF file, and you can’t distribute that file.

Failing the vendor/DAZ fixing this, then the only choice is to export the mesh, fix the UV in something like UV Mapper, then use the “load UV set” function in the Surfaces tab’s options menu to import the fixed .obj’s UV into the figure, then you can go “file > save as > support asset > UV asset” and save a custom UV DSF, which you can then freely distribute with your textures.

I just find it sad that they released it knowing it was messed and never bothered to fix it. Complaints about this was brought to their attention months ago.

Exactly, which means DAZ has to fix this themselves.

Not sure if UVmapper could fix the UV’s of the Basic Suit. I’d love to be able to learn how to do that. Are you willing to do a step by step process of how to do what you just said? smile

And btw, I love your Avatar! So cute! smile

Some time ago, I started a thread to try and get Daz’s attention on bringing Steph 4 Iconic Shape for Genesis out of the vault and into the store. I didn’t quit until it was done. Now look, she’s in the store where she belongs. smile

I’m not going to let this go. I’m going to keep nagging Daz until they fix this.

I agree that they should fix it, but I think this is something I can fix in a redistributable way, so I will try it as soon as my husband takes my son to visit Grandma for the afternoon (otherwise my son tries to “help” - he is 4…)  Being able to load alternate UVs is one of the cooler features of DS and I’ve done some stuff with that already.  I’ll drop back in the thread in a little while and show you what I have.

I’d be interested to know how to do this as well.
