    That would be a good Batmobile with the right add-ons. If only Nolan thought of that for his movies instead of using that "tank".

    spiderpity, that's pretty awesome!!! :D Did you retexture the belt yourself also? Or is that a different belt? I grapped roguepilot's new superman52 also - he does incredible work - but it looks different to the superman belt.

    How about Superman vs. Doomsday. I know it isn't great, and can't compare with a lot of the incredible images some of you guys post, but I am getting better... I hope.

    Since you all are inclined to appreciate superheroes and are no doubt familiar with the supersuit, I will announce this here.

    I need Beta Testers for 22 Supersuit products that I have created for the DAZ Store.

    6 have already begun testing and its going slow because the wonderful 5 people I have now cannot be expected to test this much content and still have lives and whatnot :D

    If you are interested, please read carefully before applying.

    If you were one of my Ninjas previously, you may get moved to the front of the line, but only because I know you and how you work.

    here are the requirements.

    -You must be ok with working for little or no compensation. The only thing I can offer for sure is a discount on the product. I dont know how much, it depends on DAZ. If its up to me, You will get it free.

    -You must agree to actively participate in testing. This means daily substantial feedback and evaluation of the product.

    -You must be using the latest version of DAZ Studio 4.5

    -You must be able to render capably and know your way around the Surfaces tab.

    -You must own all the supersuit products. (Sci-fi, Fantasy, Superhero, Boots an Belt and Cape)

    -You must know how to create and maintain a separate Library structure for the beta content.

    -You must agree to Keep everything related to the process confidential

    -You must agree not to distribute any of the files and to delete all beta materials at the conclusion of the testing.

    -PA's or people that create product for sale on the DAZ Store or other stores are inelegible.

    Those of you who have tested with me before, know my testing setup is structured and engaging... I hope to work with you soon and get these fun products out quickly.

    Please email me expressing your desire to join up. I cannot take everyone unfortunately, there are only 5 slots available.

    [email protected]


    Thanks

    Any update on your SuperSuit packs? I hope the release of V6 doesn't sideline work on Genesis for any of the PAs. I am a bit disappointed with how little support DAZ seems to have given the Super Suit and how quickly they have moved on to a new generation. I still feel like I didn't even scratch the surface with Genesis 1. And I fear that all the new content will be coming only for V6 in the coming months.

    I feel the same way Gemini. Don't know what to feel about the 22 Supersuit products that are being planned either. Considering the UV's are still messed up for the Basic Suit, I just don't know what to feel about this. A few people have attempted a fix but they either haven't released it or I have to use RTencoder to decode files that don't exist (which makes it impossible to decode).

    Guess I'll have to wait and see.

    The product is the supersuit. The basic suit is something they just threw in. Were you even aware of the basic suits existence at the time of purchase? If they had just not included it, you wouldn't have had anything to complain about over the last year.

    Re-map is up, see this post: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/8677/P180

    If it hadn't been for the basic suit and the shaders I would have returned the supersuit. Bonus or not it was a broken (or at least semi-mangled) item that should have been fixed by the vendor. Without the copyright issues I had to avoid the fixes could have been done in less than an hour.

    As a matter fact, yes I was aware of it's existence when I purchased it. Then I was disappointed it was broken. Threw in or not, they should not have released a broken product. That's just bad business and carelessness. And your right, I wouldn't have had anything to complain about because I wouldn't have known better and neither would anyone else. I'm not the only one disgruntled over this, Joe.

    I haven't had time to experiment much with the basic suit, but thank you for the download. At least I now feel secure knowing that once I get the time to start messing with this I can use these new files and not experience the problems others have spoke of.

    Now, about those 22 planned super suit expansions....pretty please with sugar on top...release them soon!

    Agreed. It was fairly ridiculous that they couldn't fix it, it should never have been put out that way. It's a fix I could probably have kludged up myself, but the free time I have these days for 3D is so limited, that I never budgeted time for it, nor should I have had to. DAZ should not sell a product, then depend on others to fix it for them.

    As far as it being "thrown in" that is certainly not the way it appeared on the product page. It was listed as a feature, not as a, "Oh, and here, we are throwing this thing in, it kinda works!" A big difference, to my mind.

    Thanks muchly, Knight :D When I shape a face I work from reference pictures; I don't go for a likeness but more for a vive of the character's personality =)

    He also posted it on DA as well. Looks really nice.

    Speaking of nice looking things, is there an update on that Zatanna outfit you've been working on, Joe? I've been looking for an outfit like that for ages now.

    I sold the very generic lady magician outfit outright to the platinum club.
