The change from T Pose in Genesis 3 to the A Pose for Genesis 8 threw a monkey wrench into loading parented hand-held props that belong to another generation. They don't load where the hand is. There is an easy solution for this.
To demonstrate, I've asked Aura and Jenni to join me. Aura is a Genesis 3 Female, while Jenni is a Genesis 8 Female.
Here are the girls in their respective Zero Poses.
1. Load the Weapon
I'm going to give Aura the gun from Mada's Bounty Huntress for G8F. As for Jenni, I'm going to give her the actual knife she carries, Bowie #2 from Porsimo's Small Blades for Genesis 3.
The weapons are loaded and parented to the
There it was in the Daz Install Manager, waiting patiently for weeks if not months: the update to Daz Studio 22.214.171.1243. Okay, fine, I guess it was time. I clicked on install.
And things promptly went to hell.

Granted it's a test render, but if you've seen similar test renders on my blog, or here in my scraps, you'll acknowledge this one looks a lot worse than those.

This is mostly for those of you who like lore, world building, and are interested in the HIP/SHIP side of what I do in the RP-verse.
First: The Big Picture!
"... Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!" The Wizard - Conan the Barbarian.
The RP-Verse exists in a timeline / multiverse where most fantasy and science fiction timelines converge, or will converge. Conan was just as real in the RP-verse as the X-Men. It's possible that Xysta, the Bronze Age Bombshell, fought next to Achilles in
A little while back, my buddy *Nathanomir (https://www.deviantart.com/nathanomir) held forth on Parthenon, his fictional home for his superheroines. Even more recently, :iconHoorayforSloth: is writing a story involving the Night Watch and their home town. So I thought it made sense to post a guide to High Plains City, the home of Duster and her Night Watch teammates. What are its origins in my imagination, and what is its history and overall skinny?
When I needed to locate Duster somewhere, I preferred the idea of a mid-western city that would be under-represented by superheroes. There wouldn’t be a Hall of Justice or an Avengers Mansion up the street with
