  • play games, or watch some movies.  Mainly just veg out and let the gray matter relax.

    Done while Daz renders.

     

    I used to do music and Daz at the same time, but my brain resets and I lose the groove.

    I want two machines powerful enough to run Daz (at the level I'm currently used to) so I can switch back and forth.

    It's either that or a single monster rig when the funds are available and we get a difinitive 'Awesome Choice" in all these benchmark races.

    I was talking more about those times when I hit a slump and can't come up with any ideas for a render, it's how I recharge my batteries.  

    And having 2 machines for Daz is awesome when I'm on a roll, I'm set up that way and tend to work on both of them at once if I'm on a roll, or poke around on a scene on one during loading screens or other downtime if I'm playing a game on my main rig.  It also comes in handy for clearing my queue of renders out quickly on after the weekend when I've got 6 or 7 ready to go.

    Why call it an Egyptian mega fast grab when only one item is related to Egypt?

    Mei Lin?  The Taj Mahal??

    Methinks Daz Marketing need to buy an atlas.

    I was pretty excited by iray Rain in normal Fastgrab. Though I need to get my rendering groove back. I seem to be going through a dry spell, which is always ugly. Can't escape the 'what if I never make a nice picture again???' fear.

    Rais is always perfect for that mood! :)))

    I too thought the content of  that category was rather funny. Definitely not my definition of egyptian ;)

  • It worked late last night, but now the 360 Rotating Turntable isn't triggering the debut item discounts.

  • Mayday!  Mayday!  Steampunk Fast Grab and High Seas Fast Grab are now 404's.  And on the banner, the G3F flashsale is coming up 404 too.

    Keep bailing out, we're sinking fast!

    Still New release is not triggering the 75% discount on MegaFast grab items, nor anythimng else it's supposed to. At least not in my cart.  :-(

  • LlynaraLlynara Posts: 4,719

    Great ideas! Haven't had a chance to check out much today. Just got back from chasing preschoolers in an apple orchard (and no, it wasn't TangoAlpha's, LOL)

    You could try leaving some 'undone' and have an unfinished projects bin.

    I have document(s) where I jot down all my good ideas worth exploring when I have time.

    That way, you can get to the end of a work with minimal fuss.

    I find a sense of accomplishment always pushes me forward.

    Also, you should probably take a night to really look at your body of work.

    Enjoy what you've done, feel good about your works (or decide you see some areas to improve in)  and realize the world needs more. angel

    And worst of all-

     

     

     

    is buy something new that inspires you. lol

     

  • Looks like we're back in business.

    Seems to be working for me trying items from a couple of categories.

  • ByrdieByrdie Posts: 1,488

    Working now. Hope it keeps on working long as it's supposed to, I've still a couple must-haves on my list.

    2 Debut = 50% off plus extra 15% should come to 65% right ?

    WW2 uniform and textures only giving 57% off

    DAZ Maths are (nearly) always multiplicative not additive. So 50% less 15% = 0.5 * 0.85 = 0.425 times full price.

    50% off plus 15% off should be 57,5% off.

    I thought I'd mention here Daz will almost always make it clear when the discounts are added together. For example, throughout the PA Festival, they have advertised buy 1 get 40% off, buy 2 or more and get 50% off. That's additive. Extra discounts are always applied one after another, like this:

    Retail - Disc1 = Balance1; Balance1 - Disc2 = Balance2; ... BalanceN - DiscN+1 = BalanceN+1

    It's not common to have more than 2 or 3 discounts stack, but sometimes it happens. (Glitches, mostly. And Daz has done a good job of minimizing those glitches!)

    I hope this helps.

  • Is there supposed to be a Still New on the new sale page? The link doesn't work.

    The discounts don't work, either, if you put something still new in your cart from the main store pages.

    ETA: They show as 40% off on the sales page, but only 30% off in the cart.

    No PA discounts in cart 2017-09-29_23.57.01.png

    Just you, LOL. from past PA sales, the discount is usually less on the catchup sale.

    It was the same during the mid-month catch-up sale this year.

    Before I pull the trigger on my cart, 50% is the max discount you could get (excluding the Daz Originals), right? No glitches or anything like that?

  • I tried and confirmed; reporting.

    the only PA sale new releases i'm seeing an 'on sale' discount on in the storefront are yesterday's premiere items.  the storefront's only showing 30% off on most everything else.

    guess i won't be doing much 'catching up' thismorning...

    On which items? Some go as far as 80%.

  • LlynaraLlynara Posts: 4,719

    There doesn't seem to be a link or a way to view Still New Releases from the sales page. Having to go to the main page instead and just look at them by release date.

    The Orc Brute for Genesis 8 is advertised as 100% off, but it costs $10.98 when it's in the cart. Am I missing something?

  • Is it a bug that only Yesterday New Debut Items are on sales? I thought all New Release Items from the whole month are back on 40 - 50% sales?
