So i reinstalled SFM recently and got to downloading the models i used, however i noticed with some of your outfit models that use heels, they aren't treated as heels, but are instead treated as standard shoes, causing the heel to be placed flat on the ground, causing the heel tip to be clipped under the ground, Though this didn't happen before the reinstall. What is needed to fix this? The issue i'm talking about is the one that appears in some the preview images of the curvy outfits with heels (https://lordaardvark.com/html/assets.html?cat=Outfits&sect=Curvy), such as the Fetish and Stripper outfits. The models i am using are Excella, Femshep, and Miranda, which are all DaZ V5.

It absolutely happened before the install. This is by design. There "fix" is to pose the feet yourself, after loading the IK rig.

Older models would have their outfits added as bodygroups, and their feet would be posed appropriately for the heels to be correct. But this causes problems with how the IK rigs work - they determine the direction that the knees should bend ("backward", ideally), by refersing the angle between the ankle and the toe.

If the foot is flat, then the toes are directly in front of the ankle - and so the reverse is "backward", the way the knees should bend. But if the foot is angled down, then toes are "forward and below" the ankle, which means that the knees will bend "backward and up". Which is not right. And if the foot angle is too steep, then the knees would sometimes even bend sideways! Ouch!

So no. Either you used very old models, or you misremember. There is nothing to fix. There is nothing wrong. Everything is working exactly as intended.

Finally tali made it on the wheel. I am very happy and curious what you will make out of it. Did you choose a head model yet? :)

Are you going to add the new Male to the "models to finish" category on the wheel now? For adding outfits and perhaps new heads?

LordAardvark

Not sure exactly on how I want to handle him. I am thinking I might add the Male as a new top-level category, alongside "Build character", "Build outfit", "Finish model". Then perhaps within his section have Head Meshes, Head Textures, and Outfits as subcategories.

Yesterdays Stream video seem to be shorter than usual. Did you already started to work on zoey, but the video was cut for any reasons? I just wondering, because it seems like you guys already did spin the wheel?

LordAardvark

It was 8pm and I was tired.

Follow-up: Checking again while logged in, and I don't see the denial info for the last model. It's just a blank submission form as usual, just like after every time the voting is reset. For comparison: when I submitted a bad link ages ago, I saw the denial before the next reset. I did get the info this way, so that's settled for me at least.

LordAardvark

Curious. I reset the votes before processing the submissions. I wonder if the fact the submission came in before the reset is the reason why you didn't get the message, even if I denied it after the reset. I will definitely talk to my web developer about this - smells like an oversight!

Hey, I waited months for you to process to my model submission and now it's gone without a word. Can you at least tell me the reason it was rejected? It was the Blender model from Smutbase. If that's not an OK format, I'd like to know.

LordAardvark

You should be seeing this denial reason. If you're not, please let me know, and I will relay it to my web developer.

Contrary to popular belief, I actually enjoyed your old video The Witcher's A Cold Winter's Night due to the amount of effort you put in emphasizing the love and desire that Geralt and Triss have for each other in that short but sweet sexual moment they had together while Ciri was "sleeping" making that scene even hotter for me in the process while at the same time bringing back fond memories of me playing The Witch games at the peak of the franchise's popularity. Do you believe that they reason why The Witch based content didn't get a much traction as you wanted was because of a bunch of uptight purest out there who thought you were "bastardizing" the characters?

LordAardvark

I think it's because it was a fucking boring video.

What is it about the Mass Effect universe that you find so fascinating for you to want to explore it even further in your own erotic ways?

LordAardvark

Good writing, interesting characters, big universe.

Do you believe most porn (including the work you produce) is a over the top reflection of men's sexual desires?

LordAardvark

I believe all art is an exaggerated extension of the artist's intents and beliefs. Porn is not exempted from this.

Speaking only for myself, my works are an idealist abstraction of reality focusing on sex-positivity. In the world in which my works exists, there is no sexual violence, no stigma or shaming or judgment. Everyone is open to experience and indulge in as much or as little sex as they want, and the society they live in accepts that as normal a behavior as going to the store is in ours. The only exception to this rule is works that explore and criticize such elements. All of my works converge toward and permeate a singular thesis: sex and the enjoyment of it should not be stigmatized.

I'm sure it will come as no surprise to learn that this is a reflection of my personal beliefs on the subject.

Do family members, significant others, and friends support the work you create?

LordAardvark

They probably would if they knew about it.

But it's a conversation I'd rather not have.
