Ask me anything

Please tell me where do I get the latest Ver. Momiji(5.1?) ? Does it need some works? And refer to this image. https://i.pinimg.com/564x/a1/8a/e6/a18ae64a243f05711fbaa8691c8025a9.jpg I want you to make use of it in your next work.

There is no DazV5 Momiji. And fuck off.

They are explicitly called DOAFANTASY. I build breasts anatomically correct for all of my models, with the exception of the DOAFANTASY models. Which are built to FANTASY standards. Hence the FANTASY.

Take your passive-aggressive bullshit and give it to someone who cares.

First - thank you so much for all of the models you make and share, you're awesome! I wanted to ask if the vtf file for Helena's face in your content dump was the right one? For some reason I get something weird like this (hopefully URLs are allowed): https://imgur.com/a/w82rhYX. Apologies if you already solved this somewhere and I missed it.

LordAardvark

Someone else has reported this, too, but they were having technical difficulties with installing SFM so I didn't think too much of it.

It is possible that my packager grabbed the legacy files, rather than the correct ones. I will look into it tonight.

I just wanted to make a potential suggestion (no to need to do if you don't want but it's just an idea). Instead of doing a schedule like you did last year, have you thought about releasing some kind of roadmap of what order we can expect some projects? The idea being specifically about not releasing any deadlines or release dates that way you won't need to finish the projects on time and we also have a better idea of what you're working on. Keep up the great content!

LordAardvark

Yeah that's more or less what I'm doing this year. Two video projects (Rachel/Chaos and an Overwatch project) and some Unity practice. Not sure the exact order they fall in but that's all I'm aiming for this year.

What is texture pooling?

LordAardvark

I need to stop looking at these questions at 330am right before going to bed.

The past few have all been technical questions I am really excited to answer, but their answers are also way too involved for me to write when I'm literally falling asleep on my keyboard.

I am hoping to make a big blog post about the technical elements of DazV5.5 within the next few weeks, when I release the new standard's source files for people to work with. I need to iron out a few kinks still and batten down the hatches on an optimized workflow - both for myself, and also for the comprehensive guide I am writing on how to use the DazV5.5 base to go from raw-exported model to finished and compiled nude model.

So hold onto that question. It will be answered soonish. For now, just know that it makes using lots of models in SFM much more feasible.

How Did You Submit A Question Without A Username? Broke The Back End!

Hey, I tried submitting a request but it’s acting up rn. My request is something from Star Wars, and no not any weird aliens or shit. I just rewatched the sequels and was wondering if you could do some Reylo vids? I’m tired of seeing Rey getting banged by Chewie or that pink alien dude from TFA.

LordAardvark

I've little personal interest in, but I know that one my voice actresses had personally and explicitly noted that she'd like to voice some Reylo content in the past.

Obviously she'd voice Kylo.

Maybe as a later comic. I don't see myself taking the resource investment to make a proper video of it, unless I come across a very interesting story to investigate with them.

LordAardvark

Probably next year.

When can we expect the Blue Star series breakdown you mentioned?

LordAardvark

I don't even know man.

I wanted to do it over my vacation. That didn't happen.

Sitting down and writing is one of those things that it's really hard for me to just convince myself to do. There's always something more material to work on instead.

For the new DOAfantasy bikinis and costumes, will they all get sliders? So like when you make a model thiccer, the cloths will morph with them?

LordAardvark

Eventually, yes. I have no ETAs on it though. I worked on those while on vacation and I had time to spare. Now I'm back and work is in full swing. I don't anticipate having much time for them.

Plus I have 7 more bikinis I want to fit (for a total of 14, one for each of the original DOAFantasy ladies) first. Then Bodymorph support. Then (eventually) canon-shape support.

I'm just lazy to cycle and read all the answers. But what ever happened to the gloryhole project with harley?

LordAardvark

It's soft-cancelled. I lost interest in it. It fell well short of my aspirations and I think it's just too boring.

The fact that we were able to get the Marie/Helena video done and fully rendered (and it would have been released by now, had it not been for my vacation getting in the way) in a quarter of the time it took Harley to get to just voicing, and that Marie/Helena is a longer video besides, I think speaks for itself as to how much more invested I was in Marie/Helena than in Harley.

Harley was a fun experiment and I wouldn't trade the experiences we had on stream for the world. But as a project I'm deeming it a failure.

Any experience and on the Source 2 Filmmaker included with Half Life game Alyx, M'lord? If not what are your thoughts on it at least?

LordAardvark

Nope. Pretty certain I've already addressed this, but by all accounts I've heard, it makes Source Filmmaker seem stable and complete.

Among other things, it apparently has no scripting support whatsoever - a massive drawback for me, since I use scripts extensively. To say nothing of the fact you have to buy Half-Life Alyx in order to access it. For someone who doesn't have VR nor intends to get it, $60 is a pretty hefty price for the average hobbiest to pay to an unfinished program. Not really a concern for me, but it is a point worth considering nevertheless.
