    I was looking at seamless pattern tiles, and want to remind everyone of Barbult's post back in 2013. She and I were discussing Pattern Cooler. Here's how to use it, and its a free resource. :)

    Hmmm. Avira says that site is now a malware site.

    Thanks for the link Novica. Not sure I've heard about that tool before.

  • NovicaNovica Posts: 22,115

    I use Malwarebytes and it didn't flag it. Anyone else?

  • Robert FreiseRobert Freise Posts: 2,884

    I use ESET and Norton neither one flagged it

    Thank you for the critique, Novia! I'll work on that (regarding the thumbnails/Eyes) for future products as well as getting better at blending that make up for the VR ladies.

    One thing I love about your thumbnails though- they are color correct. With a lot of ladies' lips and makeups, it's sometimes a stark contrast as to what is shown in the thumbnails vs what goes onto the lips and face. Yours are true colors.

    I have recently bought the RSSY clothing converter from V4 to G8 female and used it to convert several V4 outfits including this Sensibility Dress. I tried out the Floral silk iray shaders with this dress. I think it is best to use a smaller pattern on this dress. There are some lovely floral patterns in this product.

    I have some of the converters but haven't had time to try them yet (working on files from the other store)  Yours look good :) and I like the floral too.

    Do those scripts convert all V4 to G8F at once or do you have to go through and manually pick specific products?

    Here's Stetson last night with his gorgeous coal black Spring coat, before it gets slightly bleached out in the summer. He's brought in by noon everyday, starting in May, due to the heat and so his coat doesn't get as bleached out as it normally would. It was 83 degrees at 7pm last night. UGH. 

    I went out at 7:15am today to feed early and put him out, and it was eighty degees at that time. But NO BUGS. So I'm going to try and do that every morning.

    Horse Hotel was in his pasture (they had three horses who needed to be turned out together after a long trip, so I said fine and Stetson was put in a different pasture. That's why he is running and exploring.)

    What a beautiful horse! That tail reaches the ground.

    Stetson sure is a beautiful boy. He really looks like he's having fun, too.

    Fine looking animal

    It was 83 here at midnight last night and is 83 right now

    You can convert several items of clothing at once with the scripts, but I prefer to convert one outfit at a time. I highly recommend reading this thread as it contains hints and tips on several different features of the product. River Soft gives useful advice too.

    Stetson is absolutely gorgeous. He looks so happy and playful.

    Lovely horse, Novica! Shiny and happy!

    On an unrelated note, a lot of the things in the Genesis Mega Sale qualify for the "$XX of free DO stuff" offer on Kala. Even if they do similar sales for Genesis 2 and 3 items over the weekend, the discounts on G2 and G3 retro sales historically have not been as dramatic, so in terms of "quantity of free stuff you can get with the Kala offer" this is probably the best we'll see. In terms of quality, well, on the one hand it's pretty old stuff, some of it rather rubbery looking, on the other hand the variety of options is kind of impressive: the cart I loaded to test this included a Robin Hood outfit, a generic swashbuckler outfit, a jockey outfit, a unisex English riding habit, a uniform for a delivery guy with multiple texture options, a medieval executioner's outfit, the supersuit, one of its addons, and two female hairstyles that aren't close matches to stuff I already have.

    The GenNext plugin by Singular Blues is available to play with. https://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/comment/4605031/#Comment_4605031

    It is not yet "perfect" but you should give it a try.

    Here is G8F with Mavka a Genesis era morph. She is with the original clothing and hair. The skin is : VYK Midge with Altern8

    Thanks everyone :)  

    BTW, be sure and check Fast Grab, I'm not sure when it changed but for once, some of my wishlisted is in there. I had the Genesis 8 piercing products wishlisted, the flowers and My Little Place. Four things! That hasn't happened before.

    Hey @nonesuch00, what do you mean your posts are useless? I even mentioned you in this render about a year ago when you helped me with conforming eyebrows. smiley

  • RGcincyRGcincy Posts: 2,481

    Stetson was having a grand old time. I liked it when he kicked his heels near the shed - looked very joyful.

    Stetson is a beauty. It's a good thing I only live on 0.6 of an acre or I'd adopt one of the racehorses they put up for adoption all the time.

    I love the Stetson video - he looks so happy!

    I am definitely NOT a happy camper. TWICE my studio has crashed (shouldn't happen on a Titan) with Kala, Karissa Hair, and Raeni Outfit. No set, nothing else except a plane. It happens when I switch to Iray in the viewport. 

    Edit- CRASHED AGAIN when I tried to render it.

    Is it maybe a running out of RAM?

    I installed the new Beta update for the studio, I uninstalled Briallen (which gives the duplicate formula message) and it's still crashing.

    BTW, here's how to check your AVAILABLE RAM. This was Windows 10, may work in 7.

    Hold down CTRL + ALT, press Delete.
    That brings up Task Manager
    Click Performance Tab at the top
    Click Memory. 

    I'll put this under RAM in tips in the Reference Links first page.
