Go for it. All I ask is you provide credit where it's due.

Hey LA, could you explain the purpose of the rig bones in your models?

LordAardvark

They are twist bones. They're for correcting deformations, either on the model or the outfits.

What's the plan for updating the Wheel now that you made a new Marie off-stream? We might be in for an extra long voting period until the next model is needed? And if I may remind you, you should update the pending model wheel on the site too.

LordAardvark

When it's time to spin the Wheel again, then it will be updated. The last two streams (and this Wednesday's) haven't necessitated updating the Wheel. First it had chosen to update Miranda's outfit (not a character model, ergo no Wheel update), and then it chose to build Jill's battlesuit (no character model, no Wheel update).

Until the Wheel chooses a new character model, the current vote cycle will stay live.

The system wasn't really designed around the idea of having non-character models on the Wheel. That just sort of fell out naturally by the fact that building outfits and making them bodymorph-complete just takes so much time, that I started relegating them to a separate section of the Wheel. That opened the floodgate for adding standalone outfits to the Wheel as well, and now about half of the content on the Wheel is non-character-model.

I might revisit the design and see how to refactor the voting system with the new expanded scope of the Wheel. We'll see.

What made you decide to start such a large project like Hiveship, instead of continuing with Blue Star at least until the completion of Season 1?

LordAardvark

The fact it was first announced about 3 years before Blue Star was even a concept.

Hello! I know you used to do some beast content. I don't know how you feel about it now, but I was wondering if you still make it or if it's something you'd do more of in the future.

LordAardvark

Just need an idea that justifies the production time and inability to fund its production or recoup its budget via Patreon (since it couldn't be posted on Patreon).

I haven't found such an idea in the years since. Maybe one day, though!

I'm confused on what's happening. You're not following the twitter schedule anymore and Phazon Addendum B is postponed? Are you working on the Liziverse project now instead? I saw on the discord you were even considering doing Rabbithole Episode 4 next or jumping right to Blue Star Episode 4.

LordAardvark

Focusing on Liziverse. Everything after that was me having a manic / depressive episode, but I've recalibrated. Depression sucks dick but I try to keep it in check. Sometimes I slip. Sue me.

Hello LA. I took a short look on the Wheel. I saw that Harley and Marie are on it. It makes me wondering if you are using different models on your streams. Are you using older models?

LordAardvark

Holes in the Wall is using the DazV2-shoddily-upgraded-to-DazV4 version of Harley and I fucking hate.

The Marie mini-project we started yesterday is using a hot-off-the-presses DazV5 Marie. She's a large reason why the stream was cancelled Saturday and pushed to Sunday - she wasn't quite ready for production at the time.

Marie will be kicked off the Wheel and replaced with an existing DazV4-or-earlier model that needs to be rebuilt, before the upcoming Wednesday's spin.

Greetings again, Im having trouble using material overrider B6 to dazgeneric futa prop. I want to apply body_torso texture material of selected Model to prop so it matches any given model. I can use Jill_REHD_Dazv5 preloaded selection and it works. But how do you make it work for any other model? Examople- Miranda or Quiet model. Hopefully I was clear. Thank you for your awesome work.

LordAardvark

You need to create and save a preset for it. Hopefully I will remember to show it off on-stream tomorrow, and then I can simply cut out the relevant bit and upload it as an informal video tutorial.

Have you ever considered releasing old session data for people looking to start trying SFM?

LordAardvark

I've done it a few times over the years. Don't remember what or where. There's no real reason I haven't done it, other than needing to rip out all of the audio (which is a trivial task). Maybe I'll do it in the future.

Do you have plan to do something more with Miranda from MEv(maybe expand Miranda vs galaxy)?
