But what was it?  Whatever it was it’s been taken down and the curiosity is KILLING ME!

It’s still there. The wonderful and incomparable
TEST PRODUCT!

Here’s what we all see. Probably what you see. We are having a bit of a laugh at it - this is not a serious thread.

May I ask… How on earth did that (what ever the heck it is supposed to be) appear in the store? Very unprofessional.

On a passive note… It is certainly a bargain! Cant get the daz logo for a cheaper price in this economy!

after I wishlisted it and logged in, the sale price dropped to $5,999 so it is indeed a Daz original 40% off.

...since its a Daz original I finally had something to use my October PC coupon on.

...and as long as I load the pp2, version it even works in Studio 1.7, just need to tweak the shaders a bit.

...it’s five minutes to midnight…

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

Yeah, but will it work in Poser 2, Bryce 4, Vue 6.5, Reality 2, and Carrara 3??  Because, you know, it simply isn’t worth buying if it isn’t supported across ALL platforms.  And, while we’re at it, I really should start a ruckus over whether Poser is better than DS.  I definitely should gripe that this is a GENESIS product, which leaves Poser users in the dust AGAIN.  And Bryce still doesn’t support Genesis—like, how stupid is it that Daz doesn’t include functionality for its premiere product in its own software?? Someone needs to develop plugins AND python scripts to make this all work seamlessly.  And Hexagon has been forgotten.  I don’t know what that has to do with Test Product, but it’s always worth saying.

Besides, there isn’t enough content to go with Test Product yet.  Since Daz didn’t make my Victoria 1, Freak 3, Genesis Anubis and Hiro 4 clothing work on Test Product, I’m going to wait and see if a CrossDresser license comes out.  And I won’t buy it if there aren’t NGMs for it, because the planet-sized boobs are only REALISTIC when they have that true-to-life saggy look.

I’m telling you, this place is falling apart.

well no-one so far is game to actually buy it (at that price the bank transaction fee and paypal conversion fee, if returning would be a dettering factor)
it is obviously priced to discourage purchase like April fool items etc.

I also have insufficient funds in my paypal linked bank account to test it!!

edited to add, and if I did, I would be hit with an overdraw fee!!

Wellllll, as it is a DO, they really could put it up for 1.99 $ during the PC sale. *sniff*

Spyro: Daz3d is testing something, nobody knows what (probably even Daz doesn’t know) and we, we are having fun.

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

We are having a bit of a laugh at it - this is not a serious thread.

Daz puts dummy items in the store sometimes.  These were obviously meant to test the new website.  Others come out on April Fools day. 

Examples:  (Links in the threads below won’t work because they link to the old store, but you can read about them.)

http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=161484
http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=3746

We use these products to poke fun at all the ridiculous things that happen at Daz—specifically in the forums.

Daz makes the prices ridiculous so nobody buys them.  They don’t exist.
