Mike’s DAZ3D First Impressions for April 20, 2021

A Collection of Opinions and Observations from the DAZ 3D Marketplace

Today’s Promo: “Dance All Around”

Today’s Releases: A nyef, another nyef, a radio station, poses and morphs for G8(.1)F, a dance rehearsal/ studio, a nice outfit, another nyef (!), and yet another damn nyef (!!), a nice dress, and more textures for that nice dress.

Gag me with a fucking spoon.

Are you fucking kidding me?

Simple urban/ hip-hop radio station DJ booth with adjacent sound-booth and doorway that opens up into nothing.

Huge assortment of standing and sitting poses and more morph dials to slow down your loading of G8 females into Studio.

Large ballet/ dance rehearsal studio is simple and elegant but missing an HDRI that really should be provided to fill up those huge expanse for windows.

Simple casual outfit has dforce but no shoes. It works though.

And yet another f*&^%$# new female character.

I give up.

This simple, airy casual dress looks smart and has dforce and I can’t find anything wrong with it.

Set of (10) additional materials for the simple, casual, air dress (Amelia Outfit).

I have no words to describe todays’ releases. Actually I do but I’d fill up the database.

Anyway, hope you found this useful.

Excuse me while I go smoke a joint. I want to forget todays’ releases.


LOL. I think once DAZ store changed its bundles to include females and junk the era of even paying lipservice to sell men’s content has ceased. Either that or they horde what little they get to release in bundles. But seriously, even if you rendered females how many would you want? At what point is it too many? It does feel a bit alternate reality to check-in at the store daily and see the same stuff over and over.

The Naive Rock outfit is cute and a nice basic.

It’s been an interesting journey over these past few months writing these up every day. It’s forced me to take a hard objective look at the DAZ Store and what they’re offering, and the conclusion I come to most mornings is that it’s not good.

These have definitely helped me change my spending patterns. I used to go in with the mindset of “what would I buy today?” Now I go in with the mindset - “will there be anything I need today?” and “What won’t make my models take longer to load?” Characters definitely get the “Is this worth the extra seconds to load G8?”


That melts my heart! <3 That is so awesome. And yeah, I’ve definitely changed my spending habits too. Used to be I would buy just about everything if for no reason than to support the artist. Now I approach every new release with an extreme critical eye. :slight_smile:

New render rig came in yesterday so everything is in a shambles at the moment but I hope to be back to normal later on today or tomorrow. Bill and I are getting our 2nd Pfizer shot later on today so that’s complicated things too.

I had Pfizer - for me, second shot was a lot of muscle aches for 12-14 hours starting 12 hours after the shot.
