Hi, when will it come out Mass Effect Blue Star Episode 4? Really looking forward to it!!!

LordAardvark

Shortly after it's done, which will be a fair ways after it begins, which will be after Overbreed Episode 1 is done.

hi i was wondering ,how do you make the clothing flexes?

LordAardvark

DMX Morphs (Blendshapes in Blender) and exploiting a bug in Source that allows bodygroups to share morphs if you edit the outputted DMX files before export. I have a tool to automate the editing, but it only works on the versions of DMX that Game Zombie's tools for 3dsMax export. Blender exports a different version that the tool can't use, and it's non-trivial to add support for that version.

Hey Aardie? I thought Mileena is finished? I saw a release post on twitter atleast. Is she finished already and forgotten to put on the website maybe? Or is she still WIP?

LordAardvark

She's not finished. Still needs outfit Bodymorph and I think some minor bug fixes. She has a beta release out since she's usable though.

so ... to end the nipple topic once and for all ... does that mean an update for older models will not happen at all? Too bad, but we´ll respect that.

LordAardvark

It means I'm not going to burn a stream going through the mind-numbing slog of updating the nipples on the models.

I will update them as I need them or as I feel like them.

Hey L.A. How long would a nipple update for existing models take? I mean ... you think we could spend a stream for the update and check off the older models? :)

LordAardvark

Maybe 15 minutes per model. No.

I submitted a model for voting, but it has been pending for a couple of days now and I was just wondering if it actually went through. It's the Becca Woolett model from Resident Evil. The first model I submitted never came out of the pending stage, so I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

LordAardvark

It did. I only process models on Wednesdays when we update the Wheel.

So hopefully next week it'll either be added or dismissed. I need to have the text updated to explain this.

It's so models who get submitted earlier don't get an unfair advantage with votes. All new models for a voting cycle are added all at once. It's more fair that way.

does a possible nippel update for released models of yours break existing saves?

LordAardvark

It does not.

If anything else comes with that update, such as the Elizabeth DazV5.5 total rebuild or the DVa DazV5.5 update, though, those will break things. Just the nipple updates themselves are totally transparent, however.

I see Mai on the pending models wheel, even though you did her model already. It's supposed to be up to date, because Lara and Amy are on it too. How come? An oversight?

LordAardvark

Yep. I'll fix it later.

With future installments of Lizverse, could we expect any new outfits?

LordAardvark

Oh, absolutely.

One of the main focuses of Liziverse is to put Liz in different situations and occupations. It's basically a justification for Liz cosplay.

I’m still learning, so I have some dumb questions. 1. What is required on a model to get the Flex Presetter to work? I assume bones, but I’m not sure. 2. Is there any tutorials you can point to for creating/porting outfits? I’m looking at working on something and want to reduce headaches as much as possible.

LordAardvark

1. The Flex Presetter is mostly built for transferring phonemes between models. As such, you'll need a model that has the same flex names as the one you're targeting, and then you use the Flex Presetter to transfer presets between them. Such as phonemes.

2. A basic understanding of your 3d modeling programming of choice is a good place to begin. Beyond that, a basic understanding of the Source model pipeline is beneficial if your target is Source Filmmaker models. From there, you can always check out my Wednesday streams if you're still struggling with the details, but from those first two it should become fairly apparent where to go for putting together outfits.
