In the United States, Halloween is the only one of our major holidays that has no religious connotations (it may have once upon a time, but has now been mashed together from so many pagan, Christian and secular traditions that they are indistinguishable) and no heavy reminders of relationship and responsibility.  This night is entirely about having fun and enjoying yourself.  It's not surprising, therefore, that we love it so much - this is the second biggest retail holiday of the year after Christmas.

So I'm going to get some work done, get some exercise, and probably take a nap.  Then I'm going to put on my Spider Queen costume, turn on the fog machine and strobe light, and prepare to give out candy to the neighborhood kids!

Whether you have kids of your own, you're headed out to party, or you're preparing to hang out and give out candy yourself (or you're hiding in the basement or closet watching a horror film with all the lights off), I hope you have fun plans for tonight, and I hope you have a safe and enjoyable Halloween!

I'm a 3d modeler, texturer and rigger. I work with making conforming items, characters and props for the Genesis figures in DAZ Studio.

My DAZ store: www.daz3d.com/sickleyield

And at Renderosity: www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/in…

Regrettably, I am no longer able to accept commissions for models. I just have too many projects going at any one time.

Just bought Decadent. I like my Lilith a little more voluptuous and this product looks perfect. I remember you mentioning it. :heart:

I hope I'm not bothering you, but I have a question.

As an experiment in sculpting clothing, I created a pair of boots. During the sculpting process, I had Genesis in the Victoria 4 morph, as this boot is intended for females. But now when I'm trying to use the transfer utility, I can't seem to get it to work correctly. The boots won't mesh with properly with the Genesis model. It's like...when I apply Victoria 4 at 100%, they go to 200% on that same morph.

Is there anything I can do to correct this problem? Or do I need to go back and start from scratch?

You can't make clothing to a morph and use regular TU settings.  It has to be made to the Genesis base (this is true of both G1 and the G2's).

If you want clothing to only fit the Victoria 4 morph, you'll need to use a different procedure.  I never have done this, so I'm not familiar with it, but if you ask on the forum someone will be able to help you.

Hello! I just bought the singers of Chzor bundle and think it's great, thank you. BUT I also bought the Ball Joint Doll, firstly for Genesis, which I returned as it seemed to need V5 (which I don't have) and then for G2. I still can't make it work properly. I'm unsure which things to apply and in which order, and most seem to need V5  (eg: /data/DAZ 3D/Genesis/Base/UV Sets/DAZ 3D/GenePool/Victoria 5.dsf) or say they are missing parts, even though I installed it via the Daz install manager. If I apply a texture, eg Calais or actually any other one, then the ball joints are left white.  I am using Daz Studio 4.6 pro. Could you point me in the right direction of what items to use for what and what order and also, DO I need V5 - which is G1 and not G2 (I have V6) (and, sorry, but if so why doesn't it say so in the promo?)
If I need V5 I will have to return it again to Daz as I can't afford that on top of the BJD as well :-(
thank you so much for your help and sorry to 'stalk' you on Deviant Art! :-)

You don't need V5.  Just ignore the message.  The set uses the V5 UV, but that UV is built into G2F by default; the message is caused by a saving error that was supposed to be fixed by now (QA told me that it was, in fact, so I don't know why it's in the DIM files).

You have to apply the texture to the ball joints as well as to the figure, because the ball joints are a separate figure themselves.  You might also need to change the UV set the ball joints are using in the surfaces tab so that they match up to the figure texture.  If you do this, you can use any textures with it.  Hopefully QA did apply the torso UV update to the joints; if not I'll need to address that with them since that also happened a long time ago.
