    Less is good. I can use it now (kind of) if I stick to something like a solid color smooth fabric shader. But would like to be able to use something at least a bit less limiting. I imagine that a lot depends on the pose.

    You bet, and poly count doesn't hurt - sickle mage was made back before I started sculpting all my geometries by default, so it's lower poly than say Dragon Lady. I did my best with it at the time, but I still regret not putting more detail into the belts and wrinkles.


    In overall product news, I sent the promos and manual to DAZ and am waiting for a response.

    I am really looking forward to this. I have all sorts of things I want to try with this.

    No word from DAZ yet!


    Since F5 is out, I can mention that this product supports him. I'll try to get together an F5 promo today for you all.

    I saw (and bought) this pretty thing for V4 in rendo http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/index.php?ViewProduct=97505. Maybe it can obtain a good conversion?

    I can't tell without having the product, but I would think so. Val3dArt usually does very good work geometrywise.

    I saw that. I'm always looking for a Valkyrie set but it just didn't fit my needs. Hey SY... you wanna make a go at it?? What I'm looking for is some almost spot on to that of the Valkyrie from the Defenders. While it's a superhero comic she was very much all about the Norse legends so her earlier costume was very simple but cool.

    While sensible of the honor, I respectfully decline. I try to avoid anything that could get me in copyright trouble, but more importantly, I don't care for female superhero garb. (Although even the silver boob-cones are still classier than Power Girl's outfit.)

    Doesn't hurt to ask. It's really a bathing suit with cones on the breasts and a cape with arm bands. Might cobble that together myself but would be nice to have an all inclusive set. Doubt Marvel could call copy right on that one but I understand your concerns about that.

    That's a nice outfit, and half off.... have you tried it in DS?

    Don't know what that outfit was but it's gone now. Page comes up saying "This Product Is Not Available For Viewing".

  • SickleYieldSickleYield Posts: 6,938
    edited December 1969

    Well, I bought it because it was on sale, but apparently it's been taken down from his store overnight. O.o


    Here's the render anyway. The custom pauldron bones get lost in transfer, but by and large it works.

    It was one of Rendo's 50% off introductory preview specials... they usually run one every Wednesday for a 24 hour period. It'll be back up again (at full price) soon. Edit - (I opted to but "someone's" Tongue in my cart instead.)

    You'd think I wouldn't be startled by those by this time, wouldn't you? LOL

    Yeah, must keep an eye out for this. And the outfit whenever it turns up at Rendo again.

    Have you seen Power Girl's New 52 outfit? It will make you have a better opinion of her old one. Did you check out the run Amanda Conner did on Power Girl a few years ago? It was a lot of fun. If you had ever told me I would see a comic with Power Girl riffing on the Sean Connery character from Zardoz, I simply would not have believed you.

    Heavens to Murgatroyd.


    And if Gail Simone can't make me like Black Canary, I'm pretty sure there's no writer who can make me like Powergirl. Comics are a visual medium. I will always at some point say to myself, "E cup tit window. Your argument is invalid."


    Zardoz was pretty hilarious, though. :D

    Sorry, I couldn't get daz3d yesterday and today in the morning. My internet is awful this days. Oufit works in DS4 but with some issues. Collar and pauldron deform when genesis is posed or shaped. Shoes sole shows some break. Skirt also has problems, So I think to use sickle rigging in it. But in general is a good outfit full of material zones.

    I bought the sickle fixers in rendo, and I am very happy with results. So, I'm waiting for this new system.

    Good news, I'm uploading it for full review now! This will take a while with the two 200mb files, but at least they're having a look at it. ;)

    Is it the converted version?

    It's back up. 'Rosity features some new items at a very deep discount and then takes them down for a couple of days and they are back up at either a lesser discount or full price.

    Bootleggers. It's not a perfect conversion, but it's better than than the Autofit version (shown first). A pair from one of the V4 Shoe Packs is also shown (again, Autofit first).

    Possibly it is the "perfect conversion" with template method. Boots only have few details. Mixing smooth and push modifiers can improve results with adequate amount of iterations.

    Have you tested this rigging system with animated poses? Any issues?

    Color me very interested in this.

    Gah. I got unsubscribed from my own WIP thread again. How does this keep happening? Hopefully this time it was because of the commercial section as a whole being moved.


    The set is still in testing, still no comment from the tester yet. I'll poke them about it and see where we are in the process.


    Questions:


    Yes, gilikshe, that was the converted version I rendered.
    No, wilmap, as far as I know it probably will not work in DS4.0.
