Raffy Raffy has a 50% sale at ArtStation. I picked up three big Vue scenes I didn’t yet have. 430Mb in total, for the three. They all populate their ecosystems with items that should be standard library items for most Vue users.
Incidentally I discovered there are obviously two types of store on ArtStation, and for the same vendor. Click on the vendor name in a product, and you go to…
Raffy has his older Vue scenes missing here. I did some tests and the missing items are not due to ArtStation removing my already-purchased items (I purchased them when he was on CGTrader) or because my Web browser’s uBlock was blocking a further page of the store. To see the full range, the URL then needs to be…
At this version of the store URL you see no sale discounts, but you do see the full range, including Raffy’s older Vue items. Half are missing from version 1 of the store, in favour of Blender scenes.
Click through on one of these and… hmm, still no discounts…
But… if you copy-paste the desired product title into the main Marketplace search, it will then reveal the page for the same product… but this time it will have the sale discount.
It appears that ArtStation gives two versions of the store to a vendor. I’d suspect that one is search-engine friendly and shows up in Google etc, while the more dynamic one with sale discounts does not. Just a guess.
Thus, if you discover a vendor you really like and want to wishlist from their full range, it’s worth trying both store URLs and playing spot-the-difference. I’ve now been able to wishlist at ArtStation two further Vue scenes, that I thought had not made it across from the old CGTrader store. These are Path Forest in Vue and Dangerous Canyon in Vue, and will be picked up on Black Friday.
