REC Cinco de Mayo Freebies

And, finally, some downloads! I wasn’t sure how to pack these up, but eventually decided it would be easier to make a bunch of little zips than several large ones with everything lumped together. This way folks can download only what they want and install things where they’d prefer. The links to all the outfits and props are in the readme files as well as the main Cinco de Mayo Freebies post.

All presets for DS3 + and Poser 5 + — with the usual caveat that Poser users will probably need to tweak the surface material settings because I do everything in DS3 and then use a materials converter to make the pz2 files.

Click on the mini-thumbs to view larger previews. Also, this was a lot of zips to package up in a few days. I tested them, but please let me know if there are any errors.

Weekly Freebie Spotlight: Holidays 01

And now the non-toon listings, beginning with people add-ons for the holidays. Not every part of the world has snow during winter, but it seems to be the more popular view — and so clothing links are pretty much cold weather outfits, elf-ish wear, and pajamas.

Character Morphs/Textures

Note: Mostly wintry women (why no wintry men?) and pointy-eared people. I included H4 M02 and A4 Ami because the textures and morphs are so doll-like. The Mil2 PS and PT figures can wear V2’s textures. Boris and Roxanne are on the old DAZ forum; pages load slooooowly. Speaking of Mil2, they are of course quite old and can’t compare with the newer weight-mapped figures. But they still have their uses, and when it comes to facial caricatures, CDI’s sets are lots of fun to play with.

Edited to add: If looking for a freebie green-skinned texture for M4, there’s one here. Still coming up empty on any icy M4’s to match the icy V4’s…

Edited yet again! If the old DAZ forum is being non-cooperative, here are the direct download links for Boris and Roxanne.

Note: If downloading the M3 Winter Jacket, be sure to also download the other version, which has the textures. The Maddie Play Suit also works on Matt — hide the frill and the bow — and it can double as pajamas. The snowsuit is for the older Mil Baby, but with a little patience it can be used on the Mil3 Baby even without a clothing converter. Parent the suit to Mil3 Baby, hide all the figure parts except for the head and neck, and pose the snowsuit instead of the baby. Adjust head/ hood as needed. It’s not perfect, but works in a pinch.

REC Toon Tones for Gen4

Gen4 Toon Tones for DAZ Studio 3 + and Poser 5+

DOWNLOAD: DAZ Studio Version || Poser Version

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Info: Toon-ish skin tones, eyes, lashes, brows, and eye reflections for the Gen4 characters. For DS users, Toon Hair/Brow/Lash material presets, makeup for V4, and freckle overlays for V4 and M4 are also included.

*** The overlays will not show up until the scene is rendered. ***

There are a few separate overlays for the lips and face, as well as all-in-one presets. I tried to make this as diverse as possible, with many different skin tones, but there are some limitations. It’s only possible to add one overlay map per face and lip material zone. For example, you can add a lip color preset and a freckles preset, but you can’t add both a freckles preset and a blush preset along with the lip preset. Feel free to ask questions if you’re confused. 😀

Although the presets for the shaders and overlays will not work in Poser, the overlay maps can be added manually in the material room. These are included in the texture folder of the Poser zip file.

Lips and fingernails are colored slightly darker than the main skin tone. If you want to color the figure’s nipples, you can copy the settings from the lips. For lighter lips, increase the diffuse strength from 94% to 100%.

I haven’t given up on some of the other overlays previously mentioned, but since I have no idea when I’ll get around to working on them, I decided to just go ahead and upload the main files. If you’ve installed either of the Toon Tones for Sadie and Sam sets, it’s okay to overwrite the existing color tone maps in the “toons” folder.

REQUIRED: The material presets will work on all Gen 4 figure.

That said, the non-colorized skin tones are 3000 x 3000 color blocks, so they can be used for any figure, although you will have to manually apply the materials.

WIP: Gen4 Toon Tones Update #2

Toon Tones, coming…soon!

The textures and presets are done and all I have to do now is pack them into zip archives — separate ones for DS and Poser users this time — and then make previews.

Also planning on offering a few toon dial morphs for both V4/A4 and M4/H4. I have to make new thumbs, as the ones I make for myself tend to be a little sloppy.  😛  One of the H4 morphs needs a head-only preset, most of them need eye fixes — the more extreme toon morphs always seem to need these — and I want to double-check the pz2 files to make sure they work okay.

These dial morphs all require the Morphus, Morphia, or Faerime sets in addition to the H4/A4 and M4/V4 Morphs ++ add-ons. I recommend picking up Capsces morph sets, if you don’t already have them. They’re expensive, but go on sale over at DAZ — sometimes up to 50% off — a few times a year.

Weekly Freebie Spotlight: Incognito


Creator: Faerie Dreams

Download: Incognito — now here; click on “Faerie Dreams”

A Favorite Because: It’s just silly and cute.

What I Did With It:

Incognito glasses, refits for K4, M4, and V4
Diabolical Genius, TB Sam fit

Download: Incognito Xtras for DAZ Studio and Poser

Notes: The download set includes quickie refits of the glasses for K4, M4, V4, and Sadie & Sam, which will probably need some tweaking depending on any facial morphs that are added. These are in pz2 format. The material files — all except for the default Poser materials — include both dsa and pz2 formats. There’s an extra couple colors for the glasses and the noses.
