Did Rachaos got cancelled or is it still planned for a 2021 release?

LordAardvark

Thanks for making me aware that I apparently didn't Tweet this.

"Apparently I never Tweeted about this. Thought I did days ago. Oops.

Rachaos is canceled. It might be revisited in 2022 or 2023. Certainly not in 2021. New project in early preproduction. Details will be public when I have them to share. Shit sucks. Not happy. Shit happens.Person shrugging"

I realized this morning after seeing so many tweets about Scarlett that you were working on a FF7R Tifa! I had almost forgot about her since it was a while ago sine any progress was reported on her. What is the situation on her and will she ever be released in an unfinished or finished state?

LordAardvark

Fuck that model. I never want to look at it again. She is abandoned. She will never be finished. She will never be released. Fuck that model.

And again, for good measure.

FUCK. THAT. MODEL.

hey, im sorry if you discussed this before, but is there any plans to continue holes in the wall? i searched but i don't see any information on this site about it.

LordAardvark

No. It's cancelled. I don't like how it came out. I think it's too boring to be worth continuing.

Ever considered of doing a vid consisting Mai Shiranui from King of Fighters? Like she had it with Andy and strikes out to have fun? Or Fire Emblems Tharja finally getting Robin to submit to her and make him her lover?

LordAardvark

No.

I don't know fuck all about Mai other than people won't stop badgering me with questions about her (not a dig at you specifically, just a general observation). I have no idea who Andy is.

And I have literally never heard of any of the characters in your second example. I barely even know what Fire Emblem is. I don't even know what genre of game it is. I think it's a JRPG? I just looked it up. It's a "tactical role-playing game"? Apparently there's debate about if it's a JRPG? I've seen people call it an SRPG? I don't know, and frankly, I don't care. Whatever it is, I have no interest in it as a game, and I have no interest in its characters.

Are you conscious about the expectations your fans have when it comes to you animations and how long it takes to make them? Because, for example, I'm still waiting for the sequel to Miscellaneous Expenses and I kinda fear that it will come out and maybe it's not going to be "good enough" to be worth the wait, at least for me? I'm not saying that I have low hopes for it, don't get me wrong, I love your work, I'm just asking, that's all!

LordAardvark

There is no sequel to Misc Expenses. It was canned years ago. Sorry.

Misc Expenses has been retroactively rolled into the much larger DOAFantasy universe.

EDIT:

Well, "canned" is the wrong word. It was never a thing. Misc Expenses was a pilot for a series. I decided to not pursue the series.

Spin wheel this wednesday? Hope for new model :D

LordAardvark

No. We need to finish Scarlet. The last two streams were canceled, so no progress was made.

Hey Aardvark, I recently downloaded your latest versions of Elizabeth and your Outfit Loader; DaZ5 and 3.4. However I ran into a problem. When using outfit loader and scaling on Elizabeth without a rig everything works fine until you try adding the DaZ5 rig. It works fine without scaling and such, but it doesn't matter if you add it before using outfit loader or vice versa it breaks. Specifically it breaks Elizabeth's hair model and breasts as far as I've seen. Am I missing something, has this already been addressed, or is there a method to fix it? I've looked around for a mention of it and so far haven't seen one.

LordAardvark

Hair and breasts? Probably breaks the ass too, then.

The reason for this is that jigglebones ignore scale. If you're going to rescale a model with jigglebones, then you have to bake the model's procedural bones before scaling them. So that means baking Elizabeth (breasts and ass jigglebones) and baking her hair (hair jigglebones).

This is actually why, for the DazV5 DOAFantasy characters, I have two separately-compiled versions of each character, and their hair: one with the single unified height, and one with their canon height. By having the models compiled to these scales, procedural bones don't have to be baked in SFM. But obviously you're not able to (conveniently) compile Elizabeth to arbitrary scales, so you have to make do in SFM and bake procedurals.

I wish jigglebones would take on scale, but alas. This is the world we live in.
