I downloaded the Zelda model you had given us and imported it into Blender of all places! However when I go to load the model the eyes remain a blank white making her looked possessed. Look around the internet and couldn't find a solution. Everything else about the models works great so what gives? Do you know of any fix to this? Any help would be much appreciated, Thank you.

Source uses unique shaders for eyes, as opposed to diffuse textures like most systems do.

You'll need to put the eyes together yourself.

In a previous question regarding the Dead or Alive models, you said you were planning to port EVERY single DOA lady over, citing the DOA wiki page for female characters. Two things I was wondering about: 1.) looking through the entires list on the wiki, and subtracting the 15 or so characters that you've ported already, I count roughly 20+ or so other characters that I think have actual models (most of which come from Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation). The others seem to be characters that are only alluded to, or only show up in pre-rendered cutscenes. With the characters you can't port, are you going to re-create them from scratch? 2.) Do you have a particular order in which you're going to port the models? I know Mai Shiranui (who is not technically a DOA character, but I don't think anyone wants to disqualify guest characters) is currently on the voting page, so I was wondering if it was going to be left to a vote, or if there was some other determining factor.

LordAardvark

1.) If they don't have models, then I won't build them. The link was just a shorthand to express that there's a lot to build.

2.) No strong order. I'll focus on porting the 14 previous models, plus Marie and Honoka; then I'll focus on the others. But among those 14, there is no real order. Nor is there a real order for the others beyond that.

You said in one of your latest answers "I need to figure out how to get outfits onto the Wheel of Indecision in a sane way." I hope its okay, if i suggest a solution? Why don´t add a second voting area on your website. people can suggest outfits to vote for. Every suggestion needs the information: Download-Link / Image / Character-That-Should-Wear-it. And then it can move just like model suggestions. If the wheel decides to land on Outfits and one of those is done ... send in the reaper! XD But if that´s a solution you would consider ... I would say that Voters would need a second vote right just for the Outfit. I mean 1 vote for Model and 1 vote for Outfit. Would that worK? :)

LordAardvark

It's the most obvious solution, but I've been hesitant on asking my web developer about it, between how much stress the one voting system gave him, and the fact that he's been slowly working on building a new Assets page to supplant the existing one. I don't like piling work on him, though I'm sure he'd call me a silly aardvark for having such concerns and gladly take on the task with a bounce in his step...

Hello Lordaardvark. Just a little question. Are you going to port ME scenebuildports from the remaster (Normany, Citadel Apartment anything like that.) in future like you did with "Fallout 4 - Vault Interior"? high quality scenebuilds from the remaster would be pretty useful to the community (Angel-face).

LordAardvark

Perhaps. Really depends how much of a dick in the pain it'd be to extract and assemble.

Hey, so a long while back when you were working on Sami’s and her outfit, you had all these different variants of her suit. Like the cut outs on her cleavage, arm less sleeves and all these other ones as well that I remember seeing on your Twitter page. Mainly there was one that I really wanted to use which you made her suit as a leotard. I don’t know if you ever finished it? If you did, is it in a state where you could release it or update it with the current one, not just the specific one but the others as well. If you even can.

LordAardvark

If I were to release anything model-related with Samus, I would first update her to the latest DazV5.5 structure. She was literally the prototype to DazV5.0, so she is two major revisions (DazV5.0 proper, and DazV5.5) behind.

The far bigger question is, will I release anything model-related with Samus? There is a reason I've stopped doing anything with her, which you can read in a previous blog post in the archive.

As of right now, I have no plans to do such.

Any news on on Blue star 4? I really like your work btw cheers

LordAardvark

Jack's textures are still in the shop. They're making slow and steady progress. The artist is hoping to get her done before the end of the year. We'll see if Christmas comes early.

what do you think for a orianna lawson outfit for Miranda? I mean they are twins right. Giving her a new haircut and a dress would make actually almost a new character. Any chance for her Twin?

LordAardvark

What, and make Orianna actually look like Miranda? Bioware chose to make the genetically identical clones look nothing alike for reasons unfathomable to the human mind. Who am I to disagree with that?

(I'm not opposed to putting together outfits for Miranda. I need to figure out how to get outfits onto the Wheel of Indecision in a sane way. She's far from the only character who I think could do with more outfits.)

Hello Lordaardvark. Is there any hope for suggesting a male character to the wheel for the next year? I would love to suggest a model based on your bsaa males I really have got a good use for. Any hope for that in 2022? ... Would make wheel spins more exciting, because most male characters are missing in the SFM Community. At least in our niche ;) Please gimme hope! :D

LordAardvark

You can submit them for the Wheel. Don't expect them to get a lot of votes, though.

hello L.A. :) You think next year could a new lingerie or underwear pack coming to your DAZ girls?

LordAardvark

Perhaps. *Strokes beard.* Perhaps.

I just started using SFM for the first time and I'm screwing around with your Quiet nude model and I've been confused and don't know where else to ask. How do I remove her clothing and equipment and such? Been having trouble trying to figure it our.

LordAardvark

I think Quiet is so old that they're still bodygrouped. So look up how to use bodygroups on YouTube. Or pop by the next stream and ask then.
