    I bought the item 10th March - so outside the 30 day return policy else I may well have been tempted to do so. Assuming that it IS the same item, which of cousre with their site issues we cannot determine.

    In fact, it could be the same model. I remember Dreamlight makes such deals from time to time for his newsletter subscribers. If I was to judge by the names and similarities of the promos, I'd say those I got from the newsletter include:
    http://www.daz3d.com/3d-extensions-canyon
    http://www.daz3d.com/legend-of-the-stone-keeper
    http://www.daz3d.com/cs-city-poser-ds-obj
    http://www.daz3d.com/steam-punk-hide-away
    http://www.daz3d.com/swedish-baroque-castle

    There was also a set called Perfect Escape. And another one which was a patio, I don't remember the name though. Doomed, Star Base, The Gallery (http://www.daz3d.com/the-gallery) and Dark Temple Light Set (http://www.daz3d.com/dark-temple-light-set-for-daz-studio) were given during the membership. It may be a very generous technique of Dreamlight, which on another hand requires paying much attention to his shop and website not to buy something he wants to share with you :P. This one is still free: http://basic3dtraining.com/shop/legend-of-the-stone-keeper-corner/ (I think this link is allowed).

    The set of the same name that the limited time freebie (link above) in the shop is here: http://www.daz3d.com/steam-punk-nest - the promos look in a very similar way.

    EDIT:

    I went through the whole thread again and gathered all Dreamlight links, you can see yourself which is which:

    Thanks, Kerya! As I am not certain whether this one isn't going to be pulled out soon - it may be a limited time freebie for the current sale as well - I'm posting this bundle here: http://www.daz3d.com/utilities-resources/sci-fi-warrior-bundle (better safe than sorry if it was a limited time freebie indeed). I stumbled upon it accidentally, so I thought I'd share.

    Thanks for this, it works now but i am not sure if it is full Steampunk nest because in its txt file it says Steam Punk Nest Freebie. I will have to start it in DS to be sure. I also got this, looks like a good tutorial http://basic3dtraining.com/free-ebook/

    I installed the new dreamlight freebie and it's the full set. It's big so depending on your computer it might bog it down somewhat.

    No it is not :) it is only part of it as it is freebie. I have installed it too and there is only part of this i think, you can see here what full set looks like.

    Edit: Also you can check what full set includes on this link http://www.daz3d.com/steam-punk-nest

    Also, the dreamlight freebie doesn't appear to have metadata.

    Whatever it is, it's a large download in the environs of 250mb and not one of the download attempts were successful. Goes from super slow to "0", and now the servers appear to be down again. "problem loading page".

    edit: fixed! And finally got a complete download, tx Dreamlight.

    It is still nice freebie to have. Looks really nice, i am glad i got it and without any trouble. Plants look nice and i am itching to use them :). Yesterday i was downloading katana set from RuntimeDNA and i couldn't download it for at least 10 times and in between there was site upgrading. I never had problems before downloading from RDNA and there are many good freebies for me there left for downloading.

    Like "Legend of the Stone Keeper: Corner" perhaps. Can you show us what is included please? Maybe in another thread...

    Yes it is like that and the download is about the same size. Here is what you get, only one side of the wall and ground but it looks beautiful and can be used as a good background or part of scene as it has very nice steampunkish feel. There is ivy but no other props. This is how it looks like, only upper picture http://www.daz3d.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/p/o/pop9_2_7.jpg

    About the Xfrog plants, i don't wan't to open new thread, i tried importing this model http://xfrog.com/product/EU16.html but all 3 models have some black leaves in DS and i don't know how to fix it. Other plant i tried works good, i imported only 1 model of this plant http://xfrog.com/product/BL16.html. They look very nice :) only if i could make this first work. I hope others will be ok, but it might happen again.

    gulan7, take the transparency map into your image editor and reverse the black and white to white and black. I mean black becomes white and white become black. Then your plant will work in DAZ. Use this reversed image in the opacity map instead of the one xfrog provided you.

    Alot of the time you have to open the Trans in a paint program and invert the colors to get it to work in DS , so where in DS Black is invisible,and white is visible,the original trans is opposite in the xfrog stuff ,not all of it but mostly ......did that make sense?? Send me a pm if you want and I'll gladly help you.
    DollyGirl beat me to it..

    Yes it does, Thanks for answers, i tried but it looks still the same. I think transmap is maybe not implemented in the model and i am not sure where it goes. I know how to use bump, and displacement but not this. it still looks black around leaves.

    Edit: Now i have read Dollygirls post and tried puting it in opacity map. Original one didn't worked but inverted one did. Thanks for advice, problem is finaly solved, look as it should now :)

    Gosh, I'm feeling terribly writing this here, but this needs clarification, I think. The windows, a small extension of the upper floor above the door and the door itself - am I getting deja vu or those models were on the market before? I certainly saw stock renders of them much earlier than this set was released. They were on Cheyenne75's DA profile.

    Once again I remind people that this thread was designed for the explicit reason of posting links to limited time freebies, as per the first post here http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/16978/ which specifically says no comments.

    I shall clean this thread up in a bit.

    These bundles are also free now:

    http://www.daz3d.com/tutorials/day-at-the-beach-bundle

    Don´t know if these items stay free? Better to grab it now ... ;-)

    Wonderful! I figured out that there are five bundles so far as DATB is mentioned to be the fifth. I found "Slay The Dragon Bundle", which should be free too, but something is messed up and it is not: http://www.daz3d.com/slaying-the-dragon-bundle. Check if it is free for you or not. If not... Let's write to the support, that looks like a simple mistake.

    Typical, I paid $12 for some of those when they were first out!

  • MilosGulanMilosGulan Posts: 1,629
    edited December 1969

    Thanks for those links they are just perfect :). Slaying the Dragon is not free, it is 94% off, also there are few items in my DAZ originals tab that are 70%+ off. Btw sorry for me posting newsletter freebie, i have to admit that i haven't read first post, but now i will try to stick to the topic.

    I'm unsure if I should post this... Technically, it showed up in a Rendo newsletter, but if you search the site (or just use Google), you'll find it available for everyone. Anyway, the monthly freebie for May 2014 is out and it's made by SAV. Search for it, so that nobody accuses anyone of promoting purchasables (you'll probably get an advertisment).

    Thanks for that :) and it seems those newsletter freebies are not for limited time. Links can be found on Renderosity and RuntimeDNA forums. I made a list of those freebies and if someone needs it i probably could post it online and send link in PM, or any other way that might be easier.

    Unfortunately, the new feature makes it impossible to get the item after the deadline. It shows an error, so they are limited time. I'd be glad to get such list if you don't mind, could you send me an e-mail with it please?

  • MilosGulanMilosGulan Posts: 1,629

    There are at least three years old freebies in both those sites archives. I have sent a PM as i don't have your email. I have uploaded list to TextUploader so i can post the link here if someone else want to have it. I hope i did it good.
