Daz Studio 4 Map Transfer Mini TutorialThe process is fairly simple. You load the desired texture on to Genesis in Daz Studio 4 (in which ever form, V5, M5 etc) Then under the 'Surfaces' Tab, select the icon in the top left corner of the window. Scroll down to Map Transfer. On the top left of the new window where it says 'Template' right click in the box area. Click 'New Template'. On the right side of the window is a list of the surfaces your current 3d model has. Daz have been very helpful here as they have numbered the relevant parts of the map that belong together. So it is then a process of Shift+Left Click each map region in turn. Once you have the whole group selected left click and drag them over to the Template1 that you created. Then change the 'Target UV Map to M4. You will need to have the Template1 selected to alter the 'Template Options' in the lower part of the window. I would advise a quality of 10, and dimensions of 4096. Then select an output directory.

“Have you heard of Patreon?”
“Why doesn’t your site have a Donate button?”
Put simply, I have this (evidently archaic) opinion that; if you want to make money, you have to do the work first. I don’t like the idea of taking money off people unless they get something for it immediately, not [insert timeframe here] down the line. It feels like a scam. That’s why I produce all those cheap digital comics: to finance my larger projects (and which is why I get pissed off when I find them being distributed freely online, because it slows everything down).
Even for large projects, like video-games that only have a niche audience and which big publishers won’t ever assist: I don’t see crowd funding as a particularly good way to go about getting production capital. I prefer the early release approach, such as that Mojang took with Minecraft.

The Happy World of Haribo...oh...OH...OH, GOD!!!I like to take a bag of Haribo gummy sweets with me when I go to the cinema.

The truth about this test - from official sourcesReturn to the main page http://tanner28.deviantart.com/journal/So-you-re-stuck-with-the-new-submit-page-too-334567063The truth about this test - from official sources2 years ago in Personal More Like This
THE TRUTH FROM THE SOURCE ABOUT THIS TEST!!
1 - We'll listen on OUR terms, not yours
2 - Part of this test is to purposely not let you out (and piss you off)
3 - This was not a beta-testing-worthy submit page. It is ALPHA stage testing.
4 - Shifting the blame from Da to the users
Another truth about this test is that we can't change everything about this with our opinions, thoughts, suggestions and feedback, even though we should be able to do so. Yet another truth about this test is, the admins don't even know what they're telling us.
First they told me that it would've been better to ask beforehand and leave people a choice and that they pretty much forgot to do so. Now they're saying it was part of the test.

It’s also been hinted that other familiar faces from the Batman universe will either appear or be referenced.
First concern at this news is that they’re moving too fast. WB are looking enviously at the cash-cow that is The Avengers and are force feeding their own franchise all manner of unhealthy things in an effort to hasten its development.
If they don’t devote the same amount of time to character development as the Marvel films did, the general movie-going audience isn’t going to have a real desire to see a JLA flick as they will simply feel no connection to the characters.
Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America. There were 5 movies before we got to Avengers. It made people invest in the universe that was being presented.

Yeah, this'll end well.....Let me try to wrap my head around this: certain parties in the U.S government don't like the idea of assisting the poor, of the county they serve, with health care expense, because of the cost.Yeah, this'll end well.....10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Their "solution" to this is to shut down the government (something which isn't possible in any other nation on the planet), which will cost more, decrease public spending, lower the demand for imports, damage global economy and generally tarnish the U.S's international reputation even further?
The rich making others suffer in an effort to get their own way.
I believe that's called "tyranny".

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

It's that magical time of good Cheer
I guess part of the reason's
the heart of the season
of Christmas is practically here.
Every shop window up and down the Boulevard
has the look of a big expensive Christmas card
There's a train load of trees at the railroad yard
and one of these soon will be ours
Every roof wears a blanket of snow
Every face wears holiday glow
All the world is revealing
that mistletoe feeling
that tells us Christmas is here
It's my Favorite...TIME...OF THE YEAR!
I so want a raw version of that song.
Merry christmas to all my watcher! Hope yours is full of joy and gifts

Shakuntala Devi: Brain AmazonI just stumbled across this news article reporting the death of a very unique True Amazon. While many Amazons are known for traits such as leadership skills or physical strength, Shakuntala Devi, age 83, had one of the most remarkable minds in the world.Shakuntala Devi: Brain Amazon1 year ago in Personal More Like This
She was known as the "human computer." She possessed a seemingly superhuman ability for mathematics, with the ability to mentally solve math problems in seconds that would be impossible for anyone else. She could even solve math problems faster than a computer. She often demonstrated her abilities publicly, beginning in the circus when she was a child.
From the article:
"Ms. Devi demonstrated her mathematical gifts around the world, at colleges, in theaters and on radio and television. In 1977, at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, she extracted the 23rd root of a 201-digit number in 50 seconds, beating a Univac computer, which took 62 seconds.
In 1980, she correctly multiplied two 13-digit numbers in only 28 seconds at the
