Duplicate ID issue aside, comparing the carryover morphs is weirdly interesting. Mostly the faces; it’s harder to match up or remember the particular bodies. Below, Christopher and Christopher.  Telling which is which is easy enough, of course, and would be even if M5 didn’t have stars upon h’ars. I mean, his. I didn’t realize that I’d used one of M4’s brawnier bodies for Christopher until I saw them together.

Bodies didn’t get carried over from M4, obviously, as the style between M4 and M5 are different. Bodies aren’t set in stone as you can mix and match what you want to make unique bodies for whatever guy you want.

Just looking at the deliciously homoerotic renders on this thread is already making me drool… tongue rolleye

Yeah, I’ve started getting the duplicate ID error too after installing Axel. But… I must say I love Axel’s eyes… The two-color eyes are really cool. Want to play more with this character when I have the time. =-)

So I think I’ve fixed the Duplicate ID issue without breaking Axel. I compared the FBMAIAxelBody05SmallScale.dsf to the rest of his files in a text editor, and the last ID statement, the second-to-last actual content line, seems to be missing a -1. So I added that in, Studio stopped throwing off an error message, and the morph appears to work. Woot! or something like that.

I do have two other questions about Axel. I noticed that some of the morph bodies appear to have multiple copies of the Small Scale body, some labeled DS ONLY—bodies 2 and 5. Are the others intended purely for Poser? They both seem to work in Studio just fine.

The other question is, are there supposed to be Bald textures for the tattoos? All of the torso textures for the tattoos have hair, so if you want something other than Axel’s painted hair, you have to make sure that it covers that hair.

And! Purely because I could not resist….

Leena comes home to discover that somehow her husband has a younger, hunkier twin brother that he never knew about, and he’s trying to explain the situation. Not that he understands it. (...What? It’s “Generations”! It’s a soap opera! They do this sort of thing all the time!)

Featuring Leena International proper, Axel M4 and Axel M5 with body shape 1.

I sent this fix to QA yesterday, and I’m verifying a few things before the installers are updated.

I do have two other questions about Axel. I noticed that some of the morph bodies appear to have multiple copies of the Small Scale body, some labeled DS ONLY—bodies 2 and 5. Are the others intended purely for Poser? They both seem to work in Studio just fine.

The DS only bodies use scaling to get their short sizes, which at this time doesn’t work in Poser. The other two bodies are actually rigged shapes, but as it’s my first rigging job some hand pose may be slightly off, so if you’re in DS you may want to use the DS-only body shapes so you don’t have to adjust any hand poses.

Any short body shape moving forward will be rigged so there will be only one version for DSON compatibility…. so any updates to DSON in our product line is being held up while i rig these body shapes.

The other question is, are there supposed to be Bald textures for the tattoos? All of the torso textures for the tattoos have hair, so if you want something other than Axel’s painted hair, you have to make sure that it covers that hair.

 

I’ll have to check, I don’t think the hair should be part of the chest tattoo. You can always do a quick fix without waiting for the update by just saving back the tattoo material and just select the skin_torso, skin_hip, and skin_nipple and that should fix it where it works with both bald and hair textures.

I purchased this item the other night… item failed to appear in My Downloadable Products list. I tried to reset the item from the Itemized order history… and it still failed to load up. I don’t think I will be ordering anymore items until the store is functioning properly. :(

Contact customer service about your order, I think there were a few people ordered the product when the installers weren’t associated with it. So this wasn’t a store issue.

Yeah, I am one of those too.  The problem is they changed the store URL and added a -1 when it was re-introduced into the store, so our purchases are linked to the old product which has no installers.  Britney in customer service had to forward the ticket to Technical since she couldn’t fix it herself.

Edit: Issued resolved, thanks Britney!

How big are the files for this product?
I am downloading the legacy file and its still going at 300 plus mbs which seems rather unusual for a product of this type. Is this correct?

I just bought Axel a couple of weeks ago and then you turned around and released M5 of him… ugggh! He’s positively gorgeous, but I’m going to have to morph him myself.

There’s one of these morphs where he looks like he could be Angelina Jolie’s twin brother… looks great. Well done!

Aww, go ahead and get him… ya know you want to wink

We’re majorly behind on our M5 updates, but hopefully we can get them out a lot quicker… we need to the new guys out; poor Johan and ... that other guy needs to be done… wink

@nemesis10: oh and nice image!
