Trialing the new Maxx character speedos and tanline on my own character.  Unfortunately, the way it's set up for iray, the tanlines and tattoos don't work in octane (could just be me not knowing what I'm doing).  I haven't used LIE in such a long time.

"Well they often call 'im Speedo, but his real name is Mr. Earl!" Remember that song by the Cadillacs?

(When he's not looking, I'm going to sneak up behind him and pull that speedo down! I want to see the whole 'magic'!!) <evil grin>

He looks awesome though. I like the speedo but it makes me laugh since by daz’s own rules about nudity it can never be used in actual art on their site. Because if the cleavage

As far as Max’s textures applied to other characters. I wasn’t too successful on getting them to look good. I thought the water looked like plastic, and the rest did not work for me. The bikini though and base skin are great.

Thank you :)  I haven't played with him too much, due to his tanlines and tats not working for me.  But, now I've converted them all to png and use them as LIE, they'll be used all the time (they're so much better than my own one lol)
 
The clothing's great and I, sort of, like it's body morph - it's not great with see through cloth. 

Other PA's could learn a few things from Soto

Did it work to pull the composited textures out of the temp directory and reapply them?

How have you been getting the tattoos to work if Octane doesn't understand LIE?

Octane understands LIE and that's how I've done this tanline - I manually load the texture.  But Soto did something odd with iray shaders and that's what octane doesn't understand.  But, it could just be the way I'm using it.  The paw print tatt has me beat, at this point in time, as it doesn't load into LIE in the right spot and I haven't had time to try reposition it.

He did write custom skin shaders for Maxx, and there are specific instructions for using it on other characters. I'm betting that it's the custom shader part that has Octane's translator befuddled. (Part of me is vaguely tempted to haul Reality/Lux out of retirement on my system and see what happens. Thankfully, the greater part of me is sane and is vigorously beating that part into submission.) (That said ... I have a vague, nebulous memory that he might actually use Octane. Might could send him a PM and ask, anyway.)

I uninstalled Reality a long time ago.  I don't think it uninstalled very well - I keep finding the occasional file lol 
But, I like my octane skin shader (redspec tgx) and will happily use it until I get shitty with it :D
