Yo!

Since I keep getting requests from people who want links for my old XPS ports, I decided to write a full journal with questions and answers to link around.
Here's all you need to know about my ports and general models:


"Where are your XPS ports?"

GONE. They have been taken down a long time ago and I don't plan to reupload them anywhere else.

"Can I have this model?"

No. As I said they've been removed and I don't intend to share anymore.

"Please I read your journal and comments but I really need those models because my computer broke and I lost them. Please upload them on tumblr or send them to me please please please!!"

I'm sorry for your loss dearie, but nowadays you should know how technology works. You ALWAYS have to backup your files, either on an external drive or different PC. If you lost the models you once downloaded from me you can only blame your own mistake here, it's no concern of mine and I won't just take pity sending you what you want. Playing the victim card won't bring you anywhere.

"You don't even own the models in the first place."

That is precisely why I'm not sharing anymore. I do not own the models and I don't intend to be responsible for the way they are used online. You don't need to approve, it's not like I'd change my mind anyway.

"Can I share your old ports for the public?"

If you happen to have any of my ports, please do not reupload them for other people. I took them down because I no longer wanted them online, so I kindly ask you to respect my decision.

"Why are you so against porn?"

I am actually not against porn per say, on the contrary I can enjoy it like anyone else. The real issue is is the way porn is made here; copyrighted models edited for nudes and used not only for questionable content most of the time, but also for money on Patreon and/or for commissions. Using copyrighted assets in such a disrespectful way and for profit is absolutely wrong in my eyes and I don't want the models I release to be used for that kind of stuff. As I mentioned above I don't want to feel responsible for the way my ports are used and that already happened in the past. The so called XNALara community is no longer how it used to be, which is sad.

"Lol you know you can't stop it, right?"

I know perfectly well, reason why I removed all my ports and stopped sharing at once. You can complain with me about this old story as much as you like, but your trolling will result in a terrible waste of time. You are free to have your own opinion about the matter, but my decision is final and your hate surely won't make me cry nor keep me awake at night.

"Can you at least share your custom models?"

Why should I? I spend way too much time on those characters and they are for personal use only.

"I want your DAZ models for XPS."

Not a chance.

"I want your DAZ models in my Daz3d program, can I get them?"

Not gonna happen, sorry.

"Do you take requests for renders?"


I don't take any kind of request.

"Meh, you're rude."

Correction: I'm fed up. When you constantly have to deal with the same requests, complaints and even hateful attacks for your own decisions or opinions over and over again, at some point even the sweetest person will lose their composure. Sometimes you just have to check your priorities and realize what truly matters in life.

Cheers~

As someone who has also stopped sharing the mods I worked on; and as someone who has also stopped sharing the tool(s) To "Realtime Posing and Render" models,
for similar reasons, I also respect and applaud your decision.

True, t
he so called XNALara community is no longer how it used to be, which is sad.
But the so called community was always so weird :D (Big Grin) You were just too busy porting ... to notice it!

Yeah, the weird side has always been there for sure... but it seriously got worse and way out of hand in the past few years. All I see now is people who cry about models they lost or cannot have, sending you hate and insults because you decided to not release copyrighted content publicly, when all they could do is learn and try it themselves :D not to mention, of course, the very questionable content shared with the models ported (and profit made with those assets).

Thank you for writing that post :hug: I'm really sad things came to this but hey, what can we do? I totally see why you also stopped sharing tools.

I came here looking for a hooded model of Desmond Miles and got hit by the Journal.... 
Extremely bad luck! Many exporters has taken down their links or removed by copy-rights owner.....
I feel the XNALara is dying..... Disbelief

You feel it right, the community is actually already dead.
At least you actually noticed/checked the journal before requesting, people don't even bother reading nowadays so thank you.

LOL true and the thing is, the 90% of my XPS feed now is filled by nude models from DOA (or just nude females in general). Talk about variety..........

I felt sorry for you, Sumire..people somehow never get it don't they? I remember you were great porter, but for the few years, the community becomes suspicious when a newcomer wants something and claim as their own.That's so sick and anguish I can tell. Me I was once a XNA-Blender artist like yours if you remember within my gallery, but now it really let me down due to stealing everything and doesn't give credit, that's were I stop for sometime. :(

I'll give you a hug..:)

Verahnika Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Oh yes, that's another problem too. The non-artists just grab your renders and repost them without crediting, either because they don't care or find them via google without bothering to check the source. I understand why you feel demotivated in that sense... however, if you truly like doing 3D art, you shouldn't give up completely. Just place a huge signature on each picture, so that even if they try to steal and repost they will never be able to fully claim them as their own.

It sucks still, I know.

WHAT!!!!...NO way!!...I made a signature each of my pics...That's my property. No one steals from me!!.I can't believe it!!.I put all the efforts on it.This is the price I get..Excuse me!! I'm not just an ordinary person..I don't give some crap for those foolish!

I like to do 3D arts, I put every effort and takes me long days..I put love and passion each of them..

And I appreciate about that..Thank you..for that advice, Sumire..:)

HUGS!!

Some 3D communities are so toxic novadays it makes me wanna puke. When do these beggars learn that no means no?
All the time they use for begging and harassing other people they could use it to port the shit themself if they want it so badly.

Ikr? That's the point I don't get and probably never will. I understand you may want to render a model, but at the end of the day it's nothing more than that: a freaking 3D model.

Yet the moment they cannot have said assets, they throw a tantrum and stomp their feet like kids in a shop when their mom says she won't buy them the toy they want. I mean, seriously? Are 3D models so vital that people need to beg all the time and send insults or death threats? Priorities exist, this community should definitely find some better ones.

It's funny because sometimes they expect you to share whatever you do and don't even bother to comment an artwork for its purpose.

LOL :(

Going to YOUR journal, I have noticed that you has never read THIS journal written by sumirehaikuxna, careful:

Quote "copyrighted models also used for money and/or for commissions."

You do offer commissions for money :( that's exactly one of the issues why porter's/modders take their work done!

Reading this, I’ve noticed you never read through said journal either. I only offer commissions for DRAWN art, NOT XPS. I don’t even know how to port things anyway.

Get your facts straight.

In my opinion, it makes no difference if you just "offer commissions for DRAWING art", 3D rendering or for redistributing models.

Fact is, that you use the copyrighted IP of others, without permission of the real owner, for making money. 

Even the design of a character is copyrighted.

That's what I say all the time... I mean even I started from somewhere and in the beginning I really had no idea of what I was doing XD but I asked for tips and checked other ports, read tutorials and that's it. I managed to learn something on my own and even started to rig from scratch when nobody was releasing the characters I wanted. Nowadays though, learning is way too difficult and people generally want everything served on a silver platter.

This is the sad part I mentioned, the community is currently fucked up. Yes, ofc we always had some "snowflake" full of crap, but in return there were a lot of nice people who enjoyed your ports and used models for nice fanarts. Now it's all about hate if someone refuses to release a model, my friends got insulted and even received death threats. The majority of art is just porn and fetish, people complain and whine all the time, they never respect a porter's wishes or rules... etc.
