    Interesting about the flying cars. A couple of years ago I had a dream about flying cars. My father had taken the whole family to the flying car dealership. We all got into a bright yellow flying car that looked very similar to a helicopter. It was Dad's first time flying a car so we were all a little nervous. Then the dream took off in a spy direction. And, we were chasing after bad guys... I've been watching for flying car headlines ever since.

    A flying car would be fantastic (for those driving them and not underneath them anyway). It would certainly be fun to try, but 'm not holding my breath.

    A question about the contest: Are limited-time freebies or platinum club freebies that are not currently available or available to everyone acceptable in the contest, or should we limit ourselves to freebies that everybody can get right now?


    Platinum Club freebies are not counted as freebies period; as the Platinum Club is a paid membership. Limited time freebies have to be available for the whole month to count as free. The only exception is DAZ weekly freebie which can be counted as free for the month it is released in.

    Eustace Scrubb has PM'ed me about the promised prize for third-place... The gloves probably won't be part of the package - there are some issues in the modeling.

    That's very much in the '60s-style of magazine covers... and all the links check out.

    celebi has sent me a copy of the Morphing Fantasy Dress textures that all the winners and HMs will be receiving, and I've made a quick promo render of them.

    The textures were designed with the Victoria 3 MFD. Aiko 3 is wearing the "firebird" texture (and the panties from her 0009 outfit so she doesn't get in trouble with the mods), and Victoria 4 is wearing the green texture.

    Would you believe this is why I asked for May, and chose this theme?

    (No? Well, it was worth a try... :cheese: )

    Here's one I did a couple of years ago for a completely different project (using it here under the CC-BY-NC license offered by www.fenspace.net, so it isn't even a NAE)

    Question - does Morphs ++ count as a paid item or part of the base figure?

    Morphs are typically separate.

    From the rules sticky (top of forum) #6. Morphs will count toward a purchased item.

    I suppose you've all been asking yourselves, "Where's BWSman?":

    BWSman sent me a Renderosity sitemail today because he hasn't been able to login to the DAZ3D website since Saturday. He asked that I post to the Freebie Challenge thread to let everyone know he's having trouble connecting.

    Oh helpful, did he happen to say what the problem was exactly?

    No, just that he hasn't been able to get in since Saturday morning.

    Not sure what can be causing that then. If you talk to him again, tell him that both RHaseltine and chohole are also members at Rendo, so he could site mail one of us with more detail, so we could see if it can be sorted out for him.

    Surprised it's going so slow. I have another image planned but probably won't get to work on it until the weekend.

    I've passed that along...

    I'm back. I think there was a hub down between me & the DAZ3D server because I had no problems going elsewhere on the web. I wasn't able to get back in until late this afternoon and of course I had to go out shortly afterwards.

    The withdrawal symptoms have mostly disappeared.

    Thanks, both for the compliment and the entry gift.

    The first few days of any challenge are usually slow, but there's also usually some chatter to keep the thread visible. Did the theme over-awe everyone that much? :cheese: Or did everyone else have the same trouble that BWSman did?

    I've been able to get in. It's annoying that people are still having issues with this site, though. I'm sure that's part of the problem. Some might have given up by now. Still others might have run out of money and let the PC membership go, and then decided that there's not enough to keep them coming back. Without the discount the PC membership gets you, things are kind of costly here. Even with the discount.

    Then again, maybe it's been such a hard winter in our hemisphere that everyone is out enjoying the warm, sunny weather, and celebrating the end of the 2012/2013 winter season!

    I was in the core downtown at lunchtime today and still ate lunch outdoors because the day was so beautiful... I can believe everyone else is also enjoying the sunshine!

    But come back and post some renders, please... I'd like to show music a thriving thread when he gets back.

    You guys keep coming up with the coolest challenges. I cut my teeth on Asimov and McCaffery -- how could I resist this one?

    I'm calling it "Planet of the Lizardmen" because, uh, yeah, they used to call books things like that. I'm getting a distinct Andre Norton vibe from it myself (in fact I keep getting the vague feeling this is a book cover from one of hers I saw somewhere) but the girl is green-eyed and redheaded as a hat tip to Heinlein. Thank you, sir, for Podkayne of Mars and Methuselah's Children, I read them to death, and I forgive you for the emotional scarring caused by reading To Sail Beyond the Sunset at age twelve....
