Slightly late, here’s my latest monthly look at the new releases for DAZ Studio and Poser, and some items of interest to Vue users too. New items that caught my eye in February 2018:
New from quality outfit-maker Aeon Soul, Orbital Merc for Genesis 8 Female.
The fun Prototype-X: Atomica for Genesis 8 Female, with a nice retro look to it. Not sure how often I’d use it, but definitely fun.
Prototype-Six for Genesis 8 Female.
Unusual sci-fi headgear with the KX StarSuit for G8F for DAZ Studio.
Hornet Outfit for Genesis 8 Female, with a cyber-style arm-cannon.
A new Sci-fi Stasis Pod, plus room and curvy ceiling pipes.
Underwater Bedroom for DAZ Studio. Simple, but nicely curvy. Could probably be adapted to have an outer space rather than an ocean view.
Need a sci-fi ocean creature to go with the above? Biomechanical Whale Animated, on Sketchfab store in .OBJ and .FBX formats.
Steampunk and valvepunk:
A well designed SF unit from 1971s.
A detailed retro Mind Control Lab and poses, for DAZ Studio.
A free Leather Hatta.
Girly for Anceata is a freebie character and clothing and hair, all for Nursoda’s excellent Anceata for Poser. Has a nice Slavic / Finnish look. Although be aware that she’s a huge download of 350Mb! The culprits seem to be 250Mb of Paintshop Pro source files, in files called DressMAP.pspimage and AncPantsMAP.pspimage, which are presumably templates that can be deleted by anyone who doesn’t need them.
Fantasy Trees for Daz Studio. Very nicely stylised, though it looks like the leaves are trans-mapped rather than geometry. Thus, the leaves are not likely to toon up nicely in Poser 11’s comic-book mode.
House of Traveler from 1971s for Poser. Very nice, although for ‘fan art’ only — as it’s almost exactly like the Corner Club in Balmora, in the famous videogame Morrowind.
A superbly realistic Vampire Bat by AM with Look At My Hair preset.
Worms. Don’t overlook this, thinking “it’s only horror worms”. It also includes an earwig, a fat hawk-moth caterpillar, slugs, and snails. The quality fat caterpillar and snail also put this into the fairytale category.
Mystic Red Lands for Poser, and accompanying Mediterranean Red Cliffs, with HD textures and modelling. Reminds me a bit of the fiery semi-volcanic uplands in Morrowind. Also likely to be of interest to Vue users.
End of the Tracks for DAZ and Carrara. Lots of potential uses, from Goonies / Stranger Things -style adventure to a complete tropical jungle or arctic makeover.
Fog Camera for DAZ Studio, with simple fog-volume props and presets.
Lastly there’s a free V4 character, Alex for Victoria 4 for Poser. Has the sort of ‘everyday look’ that might suit those making renders for small business and educational/charity clients.
That’s all the picks for February. The Cornucopia store is still down after being hacked, so the list is light on Vue items. More picks next month!
