Sorry I'm not good at English and a SFM beginner. How do I get the latest Ver. Momiji model? dazv4.1? Replacing the head parts? I only wanna make Momiji with cop outfit posters. Sorry to trouble you, but I would appreciate it if you could tell me how to operate in detail.

LordAardvark

Well that depends. If you want to use the native DazV4 version of Momiji, which isn't a SFM headhack but is an entirely holistic model, then you'll want to download this DOAFantasy model pack.

If on the other hand, you want to use the "DazV5" Momiji, which is actually currently just a headhack of the DazV4 Momiji put onto the DazV5 Helena body--giving the posing advantages, improved mesh, and DazV5 outfits--then you will instead want to download this prepackaged SFM sessionIt comes with all of the models you need, as well as a SFM session with all of the "DazV5" characters already assembled for you to play with, including "DazV5" Momiji.

I hope that helps!

Hey L.A. quick question regarding the Fallen Throne models that you have released. I noticed that some still have their face rig from Genesis 3 Female. Did you fix the weights for the 3 weight per vert limit or just cull the lowest weight from each vert? I am deciding whether to keep or remove the face rig for a model that I am working on.

LordAardvark

I just let 3dsmax cull the weights when reducing them to 3 influences per vertex. I don't give a shit about face bones.

Does the Femshep DazV5 model support pheromones? Because I cannot seem to get them to work

LordAardvark

Don't think I built phonemes for her, but they can be easily built. Take the Phoneme .pre from an existing model as a base. Or better yet, use my Presetter to build the phonemes for her.

I'll make a video on how to use it one of these days. It's not hard, just obtuse, because SFM was really not built for adding animations to models through code. Have to massage it just the right way.

Question about the DOA DazV5 Megapacks: while I'm tempted to download them right now, the descriptions make it sound like some of the assets are going to updated at some point (unless I misunderstood, and they're just being released as-is with no plans for updates). You've mentioned you're working on updating to DazV5.5, so I wondered if maybe it was better to wait for an update to the assets. Additionally, I was wondering how difficult it would be convert outfits from the DOA Fantasy type to Curvy, or vice-versa.

LordAardvark

1.) Existing DOAFantasy characters will not be getting changes. Existing DOAFantasy outfits will, in the form of Bodymorph support and variant bodygroups (exposed variants etc), as they are missing.

2.) The DOAFantasy characters will not be updated to DazV5.5. In fact, one could argue that they're a sort of DazV5.4, since it is the work I did on them to get them to texture-pool and overall interoperate better together and be lighter in SFM in terms of memory use that directly inspired the formal move to DazV5.5

3.) Converting outfits is non-trivial. It isn't difficult, but it takes a few hours each. Even moreso if there's bodygroup variants to port. In general, going from smaller breasts to larger breasts is easier than larger breasts to smaller breasts - the automated processes do better at expanding meshes than contracting them. So DOAFantasy -> Curvy is more difficult than Curvy -> DOAFantasy.

The videos hosted here used to play nice on iOS ( specially iPad and iPhone ) but nothing will play or enter full screen anymore Am I just missing something obvious?

LordAardvark

We are aware of issues with mobile, and iOS specifically. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I have had my submitted model pending for some time, and now that you've released a new video and are planning to spin the wheel, I feel like it's okay to ask about it. When do you think you are going to process the current voting submissions?

LordAardvark

Pending models are going to be accepted after the Wheel is spun and a new model is selected.

Figured, with the month-long break I took in December, that it'd be unfair to accept new models onto the page. The existing models have had so long to accumulate votes, with the top 3 models having nearly 80 votes between them, that there's virtually no chance of a new model being remotely able to compete. And so it'd end up just burning 1 of it's 3 "grace rounds" that all submissions have before being subjected to the culling algorithm.

Much more fair to wait until a model is picked, and all of the votes are reset to 0. Literally leveling out the playing field. Then it's may be the best model win.
