Question about Dubious and Curious Pub maps

Does anyone know if the UV maps are the same for the Dubious Pub http://www.daz3d.com/dubious-pub and the Curious Pub http://www.daz3d.com/a-curious-pub? Except for the Curious distortions, the models appear to be the same. I'm "curious" as to whether the There and Gone http://www.daz3d.com/there-and-gone texture set for the Curious Pub will work with the Dubious. Thanks.

    No ... Jack said in other threads that the Dubious line doesn't take the textures of the Curious line ...

    Dubious Hallway does take Curious Hallway textures. I don't know about the Pub.

    Sometimes, UV maps aren't compatible but when you look at them conversion is a simple matter of cut & paste. If two models are based on the same mesh, I would expect this to be true.

    Thanks to all. I took a few minutes and compared templates between various Dubious and Curious buildings. It most cases they appear to match nicely. There are differences in the windows. A couple of the Curious Pub maps do have curved lines versus straight for the Dubious Pub. However, even in the worst cases however, it looks like the textures can be manipulated to fit, as pwiecek suggested. At the PC special price, there's little risk even if they can't be made to work.

    If the material zones of the two models are different you might have to correct that too.

    It took a little work, but here's a render of the Dubious Pub with the There and Gone Curious Pub texture set. There may be a few differences from Curious to Dubious for the other sets, but I think this is the worst. I'm happy with the result. Thanks again for all the responses.
