Smacky preset available (new stuff added 5/25)
updated: 5/22
currently: not much
My 2018 G3F Smacky character preset package is now available here:
I didn't have any testers, so PLEASE let me know if anything is wrong with it or if you get unexpected results and I'll fix them right away. Hopefully the MATs will find the proper texture locations (I assume they will if they're installed via Connect) and that you won't get error messages when applying the morphs.
The included readme has links to any products you might need and a complete list of morphs that are applied.
I hope it all works OK and I really look forward to any Smacky art you might make! Thanks for your interest!
UPDATE 2: Here is the transparency map I use for the Eternal Outfit G3 outfit:
This will hide the cloth that drops down and show Smacky's butt (I know of at least one guy who wil

The DForce and Shoes Problem (Tutorial) by soup-sammich The DForce and Shoes Problem (Tutorial) :iconsoup-sammich:soup-sammich 21 4


Just a note to let people know that, while I do try to answer most comments, favorites, and such, I'm kind of terrible at it, so don't be surprised if it takes a while.

I do not currently do requests or commissions.

And ... eh. Insert existential shrug .... here.

I do like that they've gone for something a bit different again. Not entirely a fan of them treating him primarily as a caricature, although they did show him in some more realistic situations. (The promo image of him in Sickleyield's Roman toga --- sort of -- was certainly unexpected.) Even in the promos, his texture and morph work looks very good.

Basically, this is going to be another thing where I get the pro bundle because getting the things I'm most likely to use -- Floyd and the hairs -- cost about the same for me as the heavily discounted pro bundle.

The pro bundle is ... different. Yes, that's the word. It's an odd choice to throw another set of wizard clothes and poses into the mix less than a week after Luthbel's bundle. The troll is a very different choice for a pro bundle. And the overalls seem to have surprisingly little modeled detail, depending on the textures for most of it -- they're going to look terrible if people try to shader them, because all the pockets and detailing will disappear; also the bib doesn't seem to be openable, which is unfortunate. The hairs look very nice. And the poses are, well, poses.

One thing that other people than me have noticed: Daz used to throw the odd ethnic character -- usually black -- into an occasional pro bundle. But they haven't done anything like that since Michael 7 and Dash, I think.

About the clothing, I think I shall simply say that I am not a fan of dForce in most of the modern men's clothing. I mostly get the reasoning, I think -- as I understand it, dynamic clothing doesn't need all of the JCMs and morph work that conforming clothes do -- but it can make using something simple like pants into something of a pain. I hope they're usable as conforming clothes if you don't want to use dForce.

I suppose we've been a bit spoiled in a way. Because dynamics in Studio have been so difficult until now, PA's have had to do almost all-conforming outfits. Now that dForce is a thing and it (...mostly) works fairly simply, they can go hog-wild with dynamics. And they are.
