I've gotten pretty adept at using Blender's UV mapping, so remapping the older animals, for personal use wouldn't be too difficult...but distributing remaps that would make many of them more useful would be. Yeah, many of them aren't the greatest models, to begin with but sometimes, they're the only thing there is.
Is there a tutorial showing how to do this? I want to be able to use my animals and if I need to remap them I need to learn how to do it.

If you change the UV's you need to make new textures also for your animals at last for the old one that have bad UV's
It is not that hard with Zbrush you can do it with one button click , then load the new UV's in DS and save the new figure
in my forum at mec4d and on my account at youtube you will find the way of how to change and UV's manually and using GOZ but this cover only DS and Zbrush

And for most animals, a simple texture would be enough, coupled with a hair plugin to do the fur. It's just that the plugin needs a clean, well laid out UV map to work.

I've been looking for some Blender tuts...but many of the ones I'm finding are either much more complex than they need to be or are for older versions of Blender. I don't have any desktop recording software installed so it would be more than a trivial task for me to throw one together...unfortunately,

But there's lots around...I'll keep looking, I know there's some easier ones, somewhere.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

The plugin handle seams very well when painting the density map on a good UV's
the one software that does not work after I upgraded to win8 was my recording screen software , need to reinstall it and see if there is new version .. the most used one anything else works without problem
Zbrush is so easy, you just paint the seams lines on the model and push the button and done
II will make some tests tonight with other animals if I still have power, as the hurricane visit me today about 4 and half hour from now so don't know what is coming .. Prepared awaiting the impact ..

It wasn't supposed to start snowing until tonight...but, it's snowing NOW!

I guess the forecast, for my area, predicting lots of snow was the correct one.

So - while I'm not an experienced Daz user - I've been playing with Garibaldi Express and it has been very easy to use. I did a quick take on a Dwarf today - with Garibaldi Hair, eyebrows, mustache, and chest hair. It is very easy to use (even for a novice like me).
