I was being pretty good about not buying more content until I achieved my goal of learning to use the new features in DS, but then this sale happened. A lot of nifty little things I’d missed out on, and I picked up some of them. I was especially happy to see a few of Samildanach’s products come back. Not all of them, but the one I really wanted — Android Blues 2 – Naté — did make an appearance:
I love this set! I broke out Rayne V3 to make a more exaggerated face and body; the tentacle prop thingie seemed to demand something a little weirder looking. The hip prop does NOT like to be fitted to V3 in DS. It deformed pretty badly when I did so, and I ended up resizing it and then parenting it to V3’s hips.
And of course I had to convert it to V4 so I can use it on V4 as well as Genesis. 🙂
Then I toned down my weird V3 girl a bit and saved her. She’ll probably come in handy again some time, even though fitting clothes to her body is a bit of a challenge.
(Edited to add that it’s a lot easier now to fit clothes to the extreme body shapes from the older CDI morph sets with DS4’s transfer morphs utility. It works better with some clothing than others, but it’s still a huge improvement from the old days.)
I mostly picked up things for my toons — especially stuff for Nursoda’s figures — but I also bought a pair of shoes for Dawn, a pose set for V4, a cute elfish outfit for Hiro 3 that’ll look nice on my Genesis people too, a K4 outfit, and a really nice texture expansion for one of my A3 outfits that I still use a lot.
There are other items I’m on the fence about, including a toon cow. I’m not sure I need a toon cow, but then again, maybe I do…
