Right then, so it’s time to get the Poser/DAZ New Content Survey back on track. My last such survey being at the end of January 2020. What new content and scripts for DAZ Studio and Poser have caught my eye in the four months of February-May 2020?
As usual, freebies are only featured here if they’re commercial-use.
CyBody - Cyborg Internal Structure for G8F.
Or an infiltrator in the Tower? CosHero for Genesis 8 Male. There’s also an earlier Poser version of this.
Or you could just teleport to the Tower. Teleport Station. Nice work, but you’d need to check it against all variants of the Star Trek teleporter room before using commercially.
Need a teleporter FX? The new SY Invisible for Genesis 8.
In the jungles below the Tower, BugHunters for M4. Probably needs a different camo for an alien planet, though. And some wrist protection.
Your bughunter may need to be packing the AER Future Firearms: Energy Weapons.
Sixus1’s Retrospace Bundle of 1940s pulp-era sci-fi outfits.
Jepe’s WonderPlantZ. Fabulous alien plants with a ‘gas-floater’ feel.
Data Processor DS, a retro ‘1980s pop video’ set. It shouldn’t be impossible to replace to the big monitors with something sleeker and more futuristic, though. Or even strange glowing orbs or techno-eyes.
Masks v003 MMKBG3 for DAZ Studio.
Sci-fi City modules, for free in .OBJ.
A Syd Mead-like Space Buggy.
Raffy Raffy has a fine new Moon lunar landscape, although for Blender rather than Vue.
Sci-fi Truck & Trailer for Poser.
Roaring out of the back of that sci-fi truck… the Desert Storm Alpha off-road vehicles. Got to get your adventurer team through the wilds of Whereizitagin to the Lost City somehow…
Secrets of Danaides Poses for Genesis 8, a useful set of explorer/investigator poses.
Fantasy and SciFi Fast Render Lights for DAZ Studio.
It’s been a rich period for new steampunk content.
Grandpa’s Room by 1971s. Nicely strange, although I hope it’s not fan-art like his Balmora buildings series. Let’s hope Grandpa’s Room is the first in a similar series. I might be inclined to make it weirder still, and add the cat head from Catoon (see below) while moving the glowing disk down.
Paperboy might be reworked as a fairground fortune-teller?
Iron Horse for Poser and DAZ Studio. Jet-powered! Yeee-haw!
“Son, yerr gunna need an eye-patch to ride that hoss…”
dForce Plague Doctor for Genesis 8 Male. Very impressive.
A steampunk Elevator For DAZ Studio.
The Miyazaki-like Abandoned station for Poser by 1971s. Superb. Also available for DAZ Studio.
Valley Guardian. Rather nice Miyazaki-like stone ruins from The AntFarm, though distinctly over-priced.
Visiting Grandma. A free ready-made scene for those with the right 1971s props to join together.
Bone Wine for Poser and DAZ.
For the Epic Character Generator software, the Season #3: Portrait Male page.
Also, there are a zillion new pirate outfits on the DAZ Store, and also some cool Hair and Beards.
Head in the Stars for DAZ Studio.
Fantasy Nebulas for Poser, for the Hivewire Horse. Cosmic makeovers for your star-horse.
A free Genesis 8 dancing pose.
Ronk, another superb Nursoda figure for Poser. And some free textures.
Vespa APE, for free in .3DS format. It’s French rather than British but is potentially a vehicle for Ronk.
Hamlet 3D, a toon piglet for Poser and DAZ.
Artephius Magnus for Ollie 8 for G8M. Similar to Nursoda’s Dr. Pitterbill, but for G8.
Catoon, a semi-toon cat with a human-like body. Great face, not so keen on the body. Perhaps needs to have it covered with a long trenchcoat and made into a gumshoe ‘private-investigator cat’.
Glasses v001 MMKBG3, including a ‘comedy disguise’ set.
The V.2 versions are out, for the flagship Poser 11/12 figures.
L’Homme Pro - V.2 for Poser.
Also fairly ‘base’ is Dain 8 for G8M, with lots of variants.
Newly found, 3D Celebrity Lookalikes for DAZ Studio & Poser.
A Fantasy Ruins set in .OBJ and .FBX.
Victorian Wash Day by DryJack, for Poser.
A British Empire District Commissioner outfit for the colonies, for Genesis 8 Male.
He probably needs some 1910s hairiness, as found in the new Alchemist Hair & Beard for Genesis 3 and 8 Males pack.
WW2 Type 22 Pillbox for Poser. A freebie from DryJack.
Stusebaker US6 for Poser.
Ancient Roman Watchtower and compound.
Siege Facility for DAZ Studio, for your siege warfare needs.
The Egyptian King for G3M and G8M and Poser L’Homme.
Stonemason’s Temple Pool.
MS20 The Crypt, a Roman-style crypt. This used to be free from Cornucopia, so check your Vue content — you may already have it.
New Orleans Garden District House with interiors and decor.
1960s Lakebed Racer for Poser.
A Space-tastic 1970s Rock God for G8M.
The free Doctor Frankenstein for M4, for Poser. Also suitable as a Chatterton-esque 19th century ‘doomed young poet’.
Vintage Milk Float in the British 1970s style.
A classic Fairground Carousel.
A 1960s style Small Public Library, of the proper sort that existed before they became kiddie-creches/computer-cafes.
Felidae by AM - Smilodon Populator, an Ice Age big-cat.
Three new volumes of parrots from Ken Gilliland. Also two volumes of gamebirds.
Bird Toys for Poser.
Feed The Birds: Upcycled Feeders for Poser and DAZ.
The Nature Plants 05 pack has a nice palm tree of the sort that might interest prehistoric artists. One might also perch parrots in them.
There are also a great many facemask freebies out there.
Scripts and utilities:
P3DO Explorer Pro 2.8 for searching your runtimes. PzDB is the main alternative.
HeadShop 12.5 for La Femme and L’Homme. For fitting a custom head, made from front/side photos, to the flagship Poser figures.
‘Frame In’, for DAZ Studio. The description is in Jap-lish, but it appears that this is a ‘move in front of current camera, and frame’ script. The same maker has a ‘Look At Camera’ Script.
Hide Backyard Script! for DAZ Studio. Hides all objects that sit behind the active camera.
REM2Greyscale for your runtime. “Rem2Grey recursively converts all your REM file [Library thumbnails] to Greyscale giving you the option to add a red X overlay.” Useful, though I’d be inclined to test it on a small batch first.
A new Scatter Tool for Poser.
DAZ Studio Fight Scenes, with Drew Spence.
That’s it, more picks soon-ish. Possibly at the end of July or start of August.
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
Carrara loads all DAZ and Poser characters and scenes,
and supports LuxRender for top-quality realistic rendering.
