    @mr_phoenyxx Or you could stay with Poser and just use Dawn from Hivewire.

    I've heard bad things about Dawn. Mind you that was mostly when it first released, and I am well aware that most of her issues have been fixed. I just haven't tried her yet. Vicki makes me comfortable. :P

    I'm also not so sure about Hivewire 3D. They just don't give me that polished, high quality feeling I get from other sites. I absolutely hate their forum.

    Hmm, really? Well, tastes vary. I spend almost all my online time there and here now.



  • I would love to see more items made available for any of the Poser figures, but I would settle for Roxie and Pauline. But as someone else said, 'don't forget Paul' and I would add any of the male figures also.



  • Thank you all for your positive responses. Good to hear there is interest.
    I have just sent a message to Content Paradise to hear if they are interested in listing the clothing models as 'Merchant Resource'. This would make the models avaialble on a basis similar to the way Pauline and Paul are available. You would be free to download the models and do your thing with them; add textures, rig them, whatever is yout taste or skill and re-distribute. That would be the easiest way of collaboration.

    The image is a recent model I made for Pauline. In the heading of this thread I mentioned Roxie simply because the last years she was my figure of focus so most models were made for her. The Miki figures slip into the Roxie models easily. For Paulie, being somewhat more stocky I need to move a few seams. Dawn and even Scarlet have been on the fitting stand.
    I do not work much with male figures. Female fashion is so much more varied. Male garments I think of making are 19th century liveries. I was absolutely amazed to read how staff was expected to wear different coats depending on the time of the day.

    That also brings me to styles and genres. Most of what I do is realistic, based on real life clothing patterns. That is what Marvelous Designer is made for. I scan the web for resources of various times and origins so models will usually reflect garments that were stitched together to be actuallly worn at some place on this earth at some moment in time. The garment picured therefore is to some degree subject to the laws of phisics. To me this gives them an added value.
    One of you mentioned Lord of the Rings. If you know someone in a Tolkien re-enactment group who has a suitable pattern for a hobbit cloak, an elf nightgown or a dwarf hood please send it down and I will be happy to give it a try. They can hardly be as weird as real life items can be sometimes. There is plenty variation and space for your creativity.

    So, I now wait and see what Content Paradise will come back with.



  • @F_Verbaas I don't think that's CP's call. You'd do better talking to Charles (nerd).



  • @eclark1849
    Well, I followed the link 'Interested in Selling Content' on CP which brought me to the Smith Micro Sales & Partners page with the recommendation to contact them, an a form below to do just that.
    I would expect that should do it.



  • I'm always looking for more content for the Poser family of figures. Once we get CP up and running that will be the place.

    I got the application and we'll get you set up soon. It's taking us some time to get CP fixed.



  • Perfect!
    I will wait your instructions.

  • @kageryu I agree. I still use the G2 series a lot, and mainly because they have good everyday clothing. But I want new clothes, for Smith Micro figures, not just re-works of stuff I already have. I can convert clothes from one figure to another myself, and I can do my own textures. New clothes meshes - conforming or dynamic, for any Smith Micro figure, from the G2 series onwards, please.

    That's the thing I love about dynamic clothing, I can use a dynamic shirt on any figure and I do. 90% of my purchased dynamic clothing items are intended for V4 but with small adjustments they've opened up an entire wardrobe for my SM figures. TBH I don't remember the last time I used anything but dynamic clothing aside from shoes because it's interchangeable and that makes their value skyrocket for me.

    BTW F_Verbaas, I don't know if it's my browser but I can't see the images you posted, I see "-" signs instead. o_O

    Yes, This forum does not (yet??) have the possibility to include images with the post. You can only reference images posted elsewhere.
    I had used Google photos as a storage, had the links. This worked when I tested it on other devices, but saw this morning the images did not come up.
    Sorry I cannot access or fix the post anymore.

    Admin can you please remove it?

    What? I can't upload my image into a post?

    Strange - it sure looks like I did.



  • Thank you BB!
    It is easy once you have found it. I had not noted there is a seaparate 'upload' icon and only used the 'image' icon.

    Well, here are the images:

  • Looks nice! Is that dynamic? :)

    BTW What hair is that? It fits her face very nicely.



  • @johndoe641 Yes, fully dynamic. Hair is Chocohair by Michelle, converted in Hair Conversion System


  • Poser Ambassadors

    Not to sound too simple ... but the more variety we have for all of our figures the better and there are always fans of specific figures. I love Pauline and even got some extra characters for Roxie ... More clothes? You bet and yes don't forget the guys. G2 clothes for the guys would be great in fantasy and SF genres since SM doesn't usually include those.



  • @Boni
    I left them out until now but if there is demand I can include the G2 figures. I recall I made some even for my 'first Poser love' Judy. LOL!

    The good thing about dynamic items is that they can be generic and 'tried on' like real life clothing in a shop.



  • I have been looking at the G2 males.
    They have a 'crunching' under the arms that makes them, in their base form at least not really suitable for dynamic clothing.
    Looking SimonG2 on the back:
    0_1462732610150_Knipsel.JPG
    The clothing vertices get 'caught' between the arm and the chest and the simulation may become unstable.
    If I compare with the MD male avatar:
    0_1462732916767_Knipsel.JPG
    the difference will be obvious.

    In the above image of SimonG2 I already put up the collars by some 15 degrees to make them look natural.



  • It looks like Nerd and his crew are still busy fixing CP.
    Anyway, next in the queue to come is a sort of cape or bathrobe.

    The blue lines are piping. I added some partial sleeves that close the armholes when worn as a cape (can be taken off) and a strap to close the front.
    The basis was the below pattern:

    If you are brave enough to try your hand in replicating the below scene let me know and I will send you the model.

  • p.s. The model == the mesh of the clothing of course LOL! The girl I'd keep myself.
