Will you make the move to Blender in the future? or have you ever considered it

LordAardvark

Blender, probably not.

Unreal is a viable contender though. We'll see how the experiment of animating our on-stream UE5 game works. My initial experiments in Unreal were promising, though there are definitely friction points.

How do you compile models that have an amount of vertices over the limit of sfm's?

LordAardvark

Using the QC command $maxverts 64000 at the top of the file, you can get a $bodygroup or $model to compile up to 63,999 vertices without the compiler splitting it. Note that any value higher than 64000 will be ignored. I often set it to 999999999 just because it's easy, but it hard-caps at 64000. The value is exclusive, so 63,999 vertices will be one model; 64,000 vertices will get split.

Beyond that, you need to split meshes into separate $bodygroup and $model blocks. Ideally you want to avoid splitting anything that has morphs or flexes on it, as that just complicates things immensely. There are ways to get flexes to work correctly across split meshes, but the less you have to do it, the easier it'll be for you. So for example, for high-poly character faces, I will often split the top of the mouth internals (gums and teeth) and the eyeballs into a separate $model, so that they're not included in the main flexed mesh. Because the top of the mouth should never move (anatomically it's hard-affixed to the skull), and Source uses eye shaders so the eyes don't need to morph either.

do you think you could make some casual clothes for your dav5 alyx model?

LordAardvark

Nah but I can provide the source files for someone else to fit them, without having to decompile her. If anyone's interested they can just message me about it.

In the Content Dump 2023 i have searched for Ayane und Kasumi i didnt find them are they included?. Do you have plans to bring out a beta release... like Mila and Hitomi.

LordAardvark

I could've swore I responded to this last week. I think my Internet shat out right as I hit send. ANYWAYS!

They're not built on the DOAFantasy P4 body like Mila and Hitomi are. The images you've seen me post of them are SFM-built headhacks, putting the older publicly-available DOAFantasy heads onto Mila's P4 body.

They will be put together eventually, but I have no timescale for that.

Downloaded your last updated Mass Effect models and noticed that the Miranda V5 models' outfit doesn't have bodymorphs despite the text info saying otherwise. Don't know if anyone ever brought it up and you haven't known this whole time or not.

LordAardvark

Are you sure you're attaching it with the Outfit Loader? Because it works for me.

Will Honoka be upgraded to DazV5 with the other doa ladies?

LordAardvark

She has a DOAFantasy P4 build available right now, in the 2023 content dump. She will eventually get a canon build. Emphasis on eventually. Right now, I like using her DOAFantasy P4 form as a more exaggerate contrast to Marie's canon build. Really puts the honkers on Honkers, as it were.

The Content Dump 2023 needs a password. I cant find it anywhere on your site.

LordAardvark

It does not. You can find it here. If it doesn't show up for you, refresh your browser's cache. In Google Chrome, use Ctrl-F5.

I cant find the link for the Content Dump 2023. Is something wrong with it?!

LordAardvark

Nope. It's your browser.

Look up how to clear the cache for your browser. For Chrome, it's Ctrl-F5.

What happened to that mass effect game you were doing?

LordAardvark

It got too unwieldy to continue developing in the way it was put together.

I am exploring Unreal Engine 5 as a more effective way to make games. Rebuilding the Futashep VN in UE5 may be a future project. Would be interesting to see just how much easier it is to put together in a proper realtime engine, rather than the prerendered videos that the old iteration had to rely on.

Gotta ask what will be seeing for 2024 and any returning series we might be seeing again? And have you ever though on male on futa/dickgirl?

LordAardvark

I'll be making a big ole blog-post in the next few days about the plans for 2024.

And it's not my thing - I'm not personally into the penetrated partner themselves being a penetrator. EG I'm not into male x male or male x futa. Male x female, female x female, futa x female, and futa solo are my personal preferences. Nothing wrong with the others, they just don't do anything for me.
