Gadgetry freebies, Retro-friendly

Just signal boosting for a nice set of freebies by Ghastly that are great for retro science fiction stuff, toony or a bit more steampunk/dieselpunk.

Ghastly’s Sci-Fi Sets (ShareCG / Renderosity) Ghastly’s Gizmo-trons (ShareCG / Renderosity), and UV Guides for Ghastly’s Sci-Fi Sets (ShareCG / Renderosity)

Parts come assembled but stand-alone versions are also included for assembling your own retro tech stuff. None have materials but they are UV-mapped. Perfect for all those materials and shader sets acquired over the years.

DAZ Studio only, but Studio is free to install and it’s not difficult — just tedious — to export the duf files as obj files.

Random Gizmo-tron example:


Gizmo-tron with plain diffuse coloring; toon-ish


Same but with bump maps textures


Gizmo-tron with maps and shaders, more steampunk or dieselpunk


Same, but postworked with random text gibberish (too late last night to make texture maps)

Also made 3DL materials for the Crone for Etta HD for Edie 8…quite the long descriptor there! šŸ˜› The eye materials make use of some odd UV mapping that doesn’t work in 3DL (as far as I can tell) and I ended up swapping the eye materials with Edie 8’s. The iray eyes render okay in 3DL but attempting to convert them to 3DL makes a bit of a mess. I also had problems with I tried applying different iray eye presets; things got weird-looking.

If anyone wants 3DL versions of the base skins, let me know and I can zip them up.
