Temple Freebie for DAZ Studio 4.6Don't worry, I know it won't be everybody's 'cup of tea' but I'm pleased to say that I've finished my first model from scratch, which is now avalable to download via ShareCG...Temple Freebie for DAZ Studio 4.6 in Personal More Like This
The ground terrain is included, so even if the temple complex is not up to your exacting standards (whaaaaaat??? surely not hehehe), the terrain could be useful as a place to construct a fortress of some kind e.g. using items from the Castle Creator.
There are some aspects that are historically inaccurate, as it's a conflation of several different temple types of the period, and I used large stone blocks all the way instead of depicting mud brick for the upper heights (this would depend on actual time period the temple's meant to have been built), and no mosaics, no paintings, no proper statue of Inanna in the most holy/seventh heaven etc etc - but this was more to do with personal convenience than any sinister motives
Tiler Shader for DAZ Studio - first look videoDimension Theory has come up with a rather useful tiler shader for DAZ Studio http://www.daz3d.com/tiler-shader-for-daz-studioTiler Shader for DAZ Studio - first look video in Personal More Like This
It allows the ability to tile surface maps independent of each other, which can open up a variety of possibilities. My livestream vid isn't anything fancy, just showing one possibility that could greatly increase workflow times rather than having to always adjust the maps in an image editor...

This looks to be DAZ Studio finally accessing some of the more advanced subdivision options previously only available in higher-level applications.
This is exciting news, as HD morphs will work on props and Tri-Ax figures in Studio, as well as working on Tri-Ax figures in DSON Importer for Poser*. At the time of writing, the tools for creating HD Morphs for Studio are not currently publicly available*... which indicates that they will become publicly available sometime in the future.

OK, great news and I'm sure we'll start to see many jaw-dropping characters hit the store before I can get my bank account back in the black, LOL.
