Since we had so much fun in the 1,5 Month long March Madness Thread we decided that a containment thread for all the fun and frustrations of DAZ's never ending cornucopia of sales is needed.

Thanks to Astracadia for the nice Thread Title!

    While you are on the magic mushrooms (:)), can anyone say how well these look in Daz? I assume the textures are Poser.

    if you are  pc+ Member have a look here: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/80036/rdna-pc-wave

    There are quite a few sample renderings (don't belive the mushrooms) for lots of the products.

    My general impression: Resonable! Good enough for background, needs some shader reworking if needed for the foreground.

    OMG, the sales are killing my wallet. George literally came out of the grocery budget. Oh, the irony! And now there are pretty plants on sale too. Might have to take that out of the gardening budget! Ha! At least they won't die like my other ones!

    I had absolutely no intention of buying George, but figured out that if I stuck him on my order  the cost of the items I had in there dropped by over ten bucks.  Hello George.

    Indeed he is, although not a character I would buy. However, I did find this gem from someone that did... http://raindropthelf.deviantart.com/art/Call-me-602800516

    Standing by for roll-over....

    Today an IRay sale Special. SimTeneros Particle stuff looks interesting.

    The Related Stuff don't show the 50% yet

  • lxlx Posts: 2,926

    Holy crap, they actually listened and mentioned the tutorials they're making on the sale page.

    I think I'm going to die of shock.

  • RenomistaRenomista Posts: 920

    Also the 3DL Users should look into this. There is a very interesting Shader Pack for UberSurface2.

  • RenomistaRenomista Posts: 920

    Ah and Related Stuff Discount is working, i just confused it with the NewPC+ Banner direcly above, and thought there should be also a rebate without New Items. So if you add a New Item it substracts the 60%

    But it looks like a pass to me. 2 Things (Particles and Content Package Assist) went to the Wishlist.

    Another Batch of new PC+ Stuff from RDNA.

    Beside just a normal new Items Lineup with 45% PA Sale for the PAs of the new products.

    The Door in the book is a nice idea.

    Yesterdays Flash Sales (PC+ Only) where quite nice too, could pick up some older stuff.

    I think there are good chances that we have more of them later today.

    Not all of the sales items are even being sold here. They have the More than human set from DarioFish that is still being sold over at Renderosity in the flier today.

    Not really; that happens to be one of the outfits used in the promotional images for Male-M3dia's new character Landon.

    I think Promos for characters should not be allowed to use the REAL Hairy

    It looks like the character has a hairy texture, but he doesn't ...

    If that is the case, maybe a different image that used something other than items from another site would have been a better choice to prevent confusion?

    Banners or promo pics for a sale using items not included in the sale are not exactly something new....

    When the product has HD morphs in the name, specificly specifies the morphs included in the package in the "What's included" with no specification of textures, says "The base product includes four custom head morphs and one body shape with an additive muscular shape" in the description , "show diffuse only promos of the morphs", puts "Additional Products used in Promo Images:" specifies "Real Hairy" showing was made in the promos, there should be absolutely no reason to believe there was hair in the product. Besides how did you know the product was "Real Hairy" unless you actually got it from the product description?

    The tutorials are very good - they've been adding them for a month or two but I've been complaining that they haven't actually bothered telling anyone they were making them. Adding them on the day's sale page (and thus email) is really great for getting more people to see them. Daz often has this problem: Studio offers so much that just isn't well documented or advertised. Lately though they've made some improvements which is lovely to see.

    I think the tutorials were awesome, between those and the ones Sickleyield posted on her youtube channel and DestinysGarden texturing thread in the Art Studio forum I have collected more info in the last month or so than in the last year about lighting and shaders and textures in Studio 4.9.  I also think Bluebird3D was going to be offering something in the near future according to her Pocket PA thread.  I hope Daz continues to add more great followup tutorials to their channel soon.

    What a lovely portal in a book by Lilflame! It's the literary equivalent to Lisa's Botanicals' Forest Portals over at Hivewire!
