    BTW @Ati : I just bought your graphical novel on Amazon yesterday. Its really nice!

    Wow, thanks! Book 2 is coming... only 200 more renders... and a couple of re-renders... :) Which sounds like a lot, but 800 already done, so it's actually pretty good.

    Do you have  link to your book handy?

    Not to hijack the thread.

    But that Re-Render thing is serious. So many times I think "I'll fix it in post" but now I'm much more disciplined and don't fear doing a bad render over from scratch.

    No one cares how many hours went into your art. lol

    That is true for many things.

    ... And I think it is correct; all customers/viewers/art-appreciaters/product-users should concern themselves with are results.

    It is up to us as the creators of art (or whatever product) to determine if the time taken is appropriate to the return we receive - no matter what form(s) that return takes.

    There's some mild stacking going on with OOT and ironman13 today.  If you haven't bitten at any of the recent new release combo deals, it might tip the scales for you.  Or for those that have already invested in the deals, adding these items might be worth a support ticket for you to repurchase/add them.

    Here's the first deal:

    2x OOT Raiya New Releases + MM Top Items Deal (OOT)

    Here's two versions of the second deal.  In my case, I ended up with a better overall percentage off if I used only one new release.  Depending on your interest in the other new releases, it may be worth it to add a total of three to get the maximum discount.

    1-3x Spring Break New Releases + MM Top Items Deal (ironman13)

    Version 1

    Version 2

    So the question on my mind is, seeing how tricky Daz is, WIll they give us a Hidden Easter Egg sale tomorrow? Secret unpublished stacking discounts perhaps?

    They will probably keep us guessing.

  • Well, seems I purchased too much with 2016 MM - and catch-up opportunities. Not much left to make use of the I13/OoT-stacking in my case ;-(

    The OOT Raiya items appear to have lost their 50% discount now, so I assume the stacking was unintentional 

  • Charlie JudgeCharlie Judge Posts: 7,551

    The stacking Ironman 13 items have also been pulled from the MM Flashback sale.

    Yeah, I was going to get the i13 Pain and Pleasure Expressions for the Genesis 3 Female(s) which showed a 50% discount until it was in the Shopping Cart where it had NO discount. Other items showed the appropriate discount. Very annoying!

    I just noticed that. The zev0 stuff is back at full price too. I really wish they would not pull the sales early. There's a good 35 mins left till Daz Midnight.

  • Griffin AvidGriffin Avid Posts: 2,953

    LOl, that's cutting it close.

    Egypt bundle is cool, but there's no deep-dish discount on the bundle. 30% ($38.00)  off still hurts and there's no combination for a better discount.

    The pose pack looks like the winner then, but even still...

    The Gen2 Anubis male and female only drop to %5.99 each.

    All the ruin/egytp sets are $10+

    Wanting to use the Tesla reception area for a club. Good bar and space/shape...

    Gonna let teh cart sit and marinate for a while.

    I find it empties a lot easier when I give myself time to think.

    Nice stacking going on today. Meet the requirements for both https://www.daz3d.com/tesla3dcorp and https://www.daz3d.com/04-12-unbelievably-hot and you can get Tesla3dcorp items for 80% off.

    Well done, ATI.

    That eliminates Egypt from today's mission.

    And loading up on Tesla - almost every set lol.

    It's going to be kit-bashing for years...
    Can't wait to see what happens when I mix sci-fi props and modern structures...

    Not trying to bash on Tesla or anything, but I remember buying his lecture hall and having some real trouble trying to make it work with figures in the scene. It wasn't just a matter of scaling either: it was impossible to have a figure seated without something weird happenning (not touching the back of the seat, having the integrated desk go through the thighs or the feet being nowhere near the ground). As a background image, it works. but it is nowhere near a functional scene and I was wondering if other products had the same isaues. Does anybody know if the newest pieces work as intended? What are your experiences?

    Well, that didn't last long. It looks like Tsla3D was pull from the 'Unblieiveably Hot' featured artists; so, no Easter eggs afterall.

    I'm dumping my whole cart.and don't feel like buying anything now.

    What?! That seemed like a completely legitimate stacking, like we used to hunt for and have for years. Is that era gone? :(

    I guess so. I've had what seemed to be legitimate stacking pulled when I posted about it.

    I can't belive they took that down! That must be a mistake.

    They can't do that. Put the guy's stuff on sale and then take it off. 

    The add says so....

    What would be the point of putting his stuff on sale, then?

    Well, it is still on sale in the new sale but they took him out of the 'Unbelieveably Hot' sale so it couldn't stack for the better discounts.

    This happens all too often and makes me feel like not buying. I dumped my cart and now I think I'll go cut my wishlist down as well.

  • Griffin AvidGriffin Avid Posts: 2,953

    No, a lots of his stuff doesn't have that red sticker on the price that shows a discount. So his WHOILE catalog is not starting off on sale.

     

    https://www.daz3d.com/wine-hall

    Wine Hall has no price reduction.

    And it says in the upper left banner 80% off if you buy three or more.

    So what, if The Hot Sale counted towards that three or more?

    C'mon, that's splitting hairs....

    That's a new product. New products are usually not included in the sales.

    And the 80% off banner says 80% off the "Elegance Fine Dining" product.

    Okaaaaay - this change of sales catalogue made me just empty half of my shopping cart. In the end, this (not buying) is even cheaper than buying for reduced price.

    The ones that aren't discounted are New items that are not discountable.

    No, it is not splitting hairs.When he was a featured artist in the 'Unblievably Hot' sale you also got another 50% off (on top of the 60% off for 2 or Tesla3D items) by buying two Unbelieveably Hot new releases. This was a significant amount.

    The 80% off in the new current sale only applies to the 'Elegant Dining" item.

    True. I'll be saving money, too. I just don't feel like buying anything now.

    And...this is why I don't post here as often. Too many times I post a good deal and BAM! It's gone pretty quickly. Ridiculous.

    I bought a couple of his items and though they are very nice, I noticed that there aren't that many actual items in the sets at all. I was trying to turn the banners off in The Great Hall. You can't. It's part of the wall textures, which makes it very hard to kitbash. On the other hand, the sets render fast. It's a trade off. You might be able to go into the surfaces and set opacity to zero on some things to make them disappear. I didn't dig into it too much when I looked at it. The Tesla sets are beautiful, I just wish they were a little easier to customize.
