I’ve had time to toon-test a recent purchase, the Daedalus Sky Mercenary for M3. Picked up for $3 from the DAZ Sale.
It all worked fine except for the inner uniform-jacket, which has un-solveable problems at the neck on even a standard t-posed M3. Possibly it was made for an earlier version of M3? Or for an M3 with a particular set of morphs applied? I replaced it with a sweater from the UziliteM3 BAM set, and did the “apply the b&w bump map to the diffuse” trick to lighten it up and show ribbing in Preview. Standard Poser 11 “Basic Materials” were dropped on the trousers and boots, these being linen and leather, so it looks better in real-time Preview. Predatron’s M4 Max Muscles mustache was added as a final touch, also picked up for $3 in the sale.
Still in need of an inner waistcoat, and a lot more optimisation of materials for Comic Book Preview mode.
Some useful tips when searching for steampunk menswear: the Americans call a waistcoat a “vest”, a jumper a “sweater”, and trousers “pants”. Similarly, “mustache” and “moustache” are easily confused.
