Is the bodywriting alt of Elizabeth planned to get a V5 release?

LordAardvark

I've made several starts of a DazV5 bodywriting skin. I keep petering out and running out of things to write though. It's possibly the strangest problem to run into lmao.

when are you going to fucking release overbreed? still waiting the shitty episode 0 because it's seems you need 1 month for the fucking sound. and all that for the fucking episode 0. so the real thing, if it will ever come out, will be ready for 2050 or so

LordAardvark

When it's ready.

The sound design delays are unfortunate, between my designer getting covid and being bedridden for a week and then deciding to finally pull the trigger and compose an original soundtrack for it.

And all of the curveballs that learning a new flavor of composing comes with. Namely the fact that soundtracks can't just flow freely like a traditional composition, but has strict timing requirements as it has to match the mood and action of the video it's tracking. There's been a lot of tweaking and scrapping compositions as he gets a handle on how to strictly control the pacing of his compositions, something he's not used to doing in traditional composition.

And 2050? I wish I shared your optimism!

Is your Gaige ready for production? Or are you going to work on that model the next stream again ? :)

LordAardvark

No to both.

Going to get her done ASAP. Hopefully today (Sunday). I want to get her minivid animated as quickly as possible.

Hey Aard! Wanted to know if you've heard about Source Filmmaker Directors Cut. If so, what are your thoughts about it?

LordAardvark

It's, uhh, very very rough right now.

Its current point makes it a worse alternative than Garry's Mod.

I have massive respect for the guy tackling it, but he's got a long road ahead of him. I wish him the best.

How close are we to any release? Mini vid or feature

LordAardvark

Overbreed Episode 0 (7.5 minutes) is done and ready for release, sans audio.

The audio is almost done, except my sound designer caught covid and is currently recovering from it. He's on the mend, can actually stay awake for more than an hour at a time, but he's still got a few days of recovery before he's in a position I'm comfortable having him work on finishing up the sound.

Beyond OBE0, I am almost done transcribing the Claire/Jill on-stream video (22.5 minutes). Once it is transcribed, I can get the voicework recorded for it. Then we'd only be a few weeks out of lip-sync and polish to get that monstrosity released.

Technically the Frozen video (20+ minutes, probably around 30-35 minutes when it's done) is quickly approaching the point it's ready for voicing, but I am temporarily putting a freeze on it (heh, pun) due to technical issues with the scene making it impractical to render. And by impractical, I mean I did napkin math and it'd take nearly a month of constant 24/7 rendering to put out, closer to 2 months of realistic rendering. Which is, uhh, not viable. So I need to figure out what's causing the massive render times and how to bring them down to something reasonable.

October will see the next minivid. Overbreed Episode 0 was meant to be August's "minivid" release, but we missed that deadline. Shit happens.

Is there a Dazv5 Honoka? I noticed there's a dominatrix suit for her, but she's not a character model you can download in assets. Am I just missing something?

LordAardvark

The dominatrix outfit is for an old version of Honoka, probably available on SFMLab.

There is a DazV5 Honoka, but she's not done nor released yet. She will have two forms: canon and DOAFantasy P4. The P4 model will be compatible with all of the P4 outfits, none of which are released yet but of which there's about 30 or so fitted (though none are bodygrouped nor bodymorphed yet), and the goal is to have about 50 total before releasing them.

Hi L.A., looking for some clarification here. When you say "Samus is toxic to work with now." Do you mean the voice actor for Samus you worked with or Samus the character (cause of n-tendo)?

LordAardvark

Second one. Innie (voice actress for Samus, Liara, and Elizabeth among others) is the physical manifestation of precious. Nintendo can go fuck a cactus.

Hail, Lord Aardvark, I have a question/request that is a bit of a long shot, but hear me out please. As an sfm hobbyist, I have always loved your models. They're what actually got me started using sfm as I was a fan of animation (and of course, porn) all the way back in 2015. Seeing them evolve and become more complex and customizable was amazing as I learned how to use the software, and I believe your models are easily one of the best out there! I'm especially a fan of the DOAF original line as you got not only all of the girls in, but a slew of interchangeable clothes that made customizing a scene all the more easier. What I'm trying to get at I guess is that your amazing when it comes to the model building, and I highly value the work and effort each model has within it. Now here comes the tricky part, and I'll just break it to you... Samus. Now before you click away here me out. The hype we all had for Samus v5 was incredible and long awaited. The model is amazing and some of your best work in my opinion! And a lot of other content creators use that model because there is nothing else to top it. However there is one thing that stops it from being a perfect model... the lack of body flexes in the suit. I know this was an addressed issue upon initial release and was slated to be fixed, but was later scrapped in favor of an updated, more streamlined DAZ v5 model with the breast_nude flexes and that stuff. Now the base model itself has these flexes, however it severely limits the amount of fantasy one has when creating a scene. If you want Samus to be ravaged by , lets say, a huge alien cock in her suit, well you sort of can't get away with that due to belly bulges clipping through her suit. Instead you have to make her nude every time or find a smaller alien, and who wants to see Samus take on a "normal" sized ET? I know I personally don't yet i wish i could get away with it. So here's the request, and it's alright if nothing happens. I get that Samus is not a welcome topic and has caused you a lot of stress, which is horrible and I'm sorry others can get away with the stuff while you suffered. But is there any chance that there could be a small update to the Samus v5 model to where the bodymorph flexes could be applied to the suit? Like I said, long shot, but I know a lot of people would appreciate it. You could even post the update in code to avoid copyright bullshit or something idk... but anyways, just wondering if it would be at all an entertained idea. I know it's been a long while sine she was released too, but this has been on my mind for a while now. Let me know what you think! Thanks again for being awesome, through all the love and hate you receive. Keep on keeping on!

LordAardvark

Samus is toxic and I'm not going to risk getting shut down to work with her. Sorry.

I've only just noticed on Lizzy that for Material Overrider, both her futa (Standard and BAS) presets result in texture errors, just an fyi And while we're on the topic of the peepee, i'm willing to learn how to create presets in SFM if that’s what I need to do, but for using Outfit loader, can I simply cut corners out of the process of creating presets by copying an existing .OL2 file (For example femshep's Futa preset), and only changing the target character in the file to another character (Such as Liz)? Or would I have to boot up SFM, connect the peepee to Liz, and then create the preset by running the OL tool?

LordAardvark

1.) That's because the Material Overrides were made for the pre-DazV5.5 versions. Feel free to replace them at your discretion.

2.) The OL2 data file is relatively straightforward. Feel free to crack it open with Notepad and see if you feel comfortable editing it.
