My blog’s last monthly survey of new DAZ/Poser content was 27th October. I’m conscious that Black Friday is coming soon, and I don’t want to collide too closely with that. So… here’s a slightly earlier-than-usual survey-pick of November 2019’s newly released store items and freebies. As usual freebies are only covered if they’re commercial use.
Astromaster. Nice, with a Star Trek vibe but not fan-art.
The FuryX future-car for DAZ Studio.
My Place for Poser and Daz Studio, an unusual sci-fi window scene. The dystopian distant scene could be easily replaced by something more likely at that level of technology.
Need more pipes for My Place? The new Flex Pipes set.
A cool sci-fi assets kit for a mere $10 from Jean-Francois Liesenborghs. Sadly only for 3DS Max, though.
Crew of Solaris 2019 bundle. One of a growing series of pose bundles targetted at popular DAZ Store sci-fi ships and vehicles.
Note that Predatron also has four of his own Solaris pose sets on the DAZ Store, though only for Genesis 8 Male.
Vanguard IV for Poser, a Thunderbirds-style car which kind-of recalls the old Gerry Anderson supercars. But, so far as I can tell, it isn’t fan-art.
A Planet of the Apes style Underground War Room with doomsday warhead. Again, not close enough to be fan-art.
At The Helm poses, a free set for G8 and a recent airship model.
Merchant Airship for Daz Studio by 1971s. 1971s is getting his large Poser range converted for iRay materials, and has some others already converted.
Victorian Microscopy set.
The Raypunk Santa for Poser, being Santa in a steampunk spacesuit. From Meshbox, and now also on Renderosity.
Free Bus Poses for G3 & G8 for the Maxis Bus.
A free Wedell Williams Model 44 Air racer for DAZ Studio. A nice classic late-1930s racing plane for your dieselpunk scenes.
A 1920s/30s SW LadySmith revolver.
A few late Halloween items which I didn’t catch on my last survey.
The Obelisk for DAZ Studio with iRay. An adaptable eldritch marker, for free.
Highly detailed Vampire coffin suited to close-ups.
Fleshy Demon Wings for Genesis 3 and Genesis 8. 45 morphs, and judging by the previews they can be somewhat folded up at the back.
Satyr with dForce Hair for Genesis 8 Male. Not thick enough on the thighs for a classical faun, but that’s likely fixed with a few tweaks.
A free set of Colourful Lollipops for Poser.
Genesis 8 Young Child Pose – Baseball (a free G8 bat is here), and Grazed Knee pose. Both free for G8. BBarbs also has a new line in free toddler poses, which may be useful if your storybook is for very young children, or requires the star to have baby siblings.
Free Realistic Curtains, for DAZ Studio. Has wind morphs, but no ‘draw-up the stage-curtain’ morphs. But you could simply raise the curtain behind a hidden facade, to make it a dark-red front curtain for a puppet-theatre stage etc.
Landscapes and scenes:
A simple Picket Fence for Poser, with nice micro-detailing and HD textures for close-ups.
Flinks Snow Crystals for Poser and DAZ.
The Orangery. A classic British orangery, a large warm glasshouse for growing citrus fruit in the winter. Of course it could also be filled with Dr. Barmpot’s Barmy Bananas, for a more steampunkish setting.
Need some heavy haulage across your landscapes? Have a look at these new items…
Peterbilt 281 1955. While there are trucks a-plenty elsewhere, often for free, this mid 1950s classic is nicely grunged up with plenty of highway mileage.
A finely detailed GWR Coral A Wagon, a heavy-load rail wagon from DryJack. Apparently intended for shipping plate-glass, but possibly also useful if you need to transport your special alien-destroying whizzbang to the launchpad.
Carrier for Poser, a heavy-load carrier for your desert planet scenes, by Beckhausen. A bit bare on the legs, but Poser’s Hair Room could shaggify the lower legs fairly easily.
CWRW Silver Stag for Poser and DAZ. Nice but it has a large list of dependencies, requiring HiveWire Horse, HiveWire Mule Deer Buck, and HiveWire Antler Pack.
History and prehistory:
The Colosseum. A complete Roman Arena.
Pirates, All Aboard! Bundle for DAZ Studio. Looks like this has just about everything you’d need to make a pirate epic. Also available in a half dozen or so packs. You may also be wanting the new Photo Props: Wooden Barrels set.
Cave. A nice free stylised pirate-y cave in Bryce and .OBJ format.
A traditional South Sea Islands style dForce Tropical Leaf Outfit for Genesis 8 Male.
People and Animations:
Real Facial Animation for Genesis 8 Males and Females. Expensive but excellent. So far as I know, unique in being quality motion-capture for faces.
Utilities and tutorials:
DAZ to Blender 8 at Gumroad. Looks like the best current option, if all you want to do do is take G8 to Blender for sculpting.
FlowScape Tutorial with the maker of this great new $10 landscape software.
That’s it, more pick next month!
