Daniel Maland’s free 3D Meshes in .OBJ on DeviantArt. Plus some in Vue .VOB format. Only a few bits of fan-art, such as the Normandy from Mass Effect, and the Fading Suns Labship.
Here’s my pick of the month’s new releases for Poser and DAZ, slightly delayed by Renderosity’s image servers being so frequently unreachable/slow in the last few days.
The superb Bradbury Suspended Rail System by The AntFarm. With pylons, track, wiring, and interiors.
Your jet-packer could be flanked by futuristic air-boarders by using Stylized Helmet, Airboard and Poses for DAZ Studio and G8 / G3. The helmet not so good-looking from the front, though.
Got a mining planet scene? Neoquad for DAZ Studio offers an interesting possibility for having floating ‘mining pods’ with ‘mining pick’ legs.
ATVE: A.E.C.O. is a nice sleek underwater vehicle, with G8 pilot poses.
Sci-Fi Cryogenic Room for DAZ Studio.
Ourias’s world : bundle car 1, low-poly but still detailed flying cars, for use in the middle distance in your retro sci-fi city scenes.
Morphing SciFi RayGun for G8F and G8M, with hand poses and gun morphs.
Steam Train is a superb movie-quality flying steampunk creation from Powerage.
A free Hot Air Balloon and basket, for Poser.
A free Long Tongue Prop for DAZ Studio, suitable for a variety of fantasy monsters. Note that you must credit “squarepeg3d” if this is used in your renders.
Prae-Pearl Hair G3/G8, for DAZ Studio.
A MortemVetus freebie, formerly on the old RuntimeDNA store, returns as the free Morphing Treasure Map.
Daughter of Dagon for V4, an organic aquatic clothing set, with an interesting headpiece that morphs.
A big Smial for the Butterfly House for Poser. Has potential for conversion to the frontage of a Hobbit hole, though it would need a heavy makeover. The first thing to do would be hide the geometry of the front step, and replace it with organic rounded flagstones.
“Ah, think the Great Walt sees you not, do you…” SW Yuda for Poser and DAZ Studio.
If you want to make your own unique pin-up ‘squadron emblems’ for the nose of such planes, there’s the new Pin Up Box Bundle, a huge set of pin-up poses in the style of the 1940s and 50s, for G3F and G8F.
Cigarette for G3F and G3M, a complete accessories set including hand poses. Not sure if you also get a 2D billboard with smoke, but there are plenty of Photoshop ‘smoke brushes’ out there.
Toon and semi-toon:
The free Rotten Eggs for Poser. 14 poses and various textures. Formerly a freebie on RuntimeDNA, so you may already have it in your runtime.
Mierasaurus, another quality dinosaur from Dinoraul, for Poser.
ShaaraMuse3D’s 3D hi-res photoreal scenes are always welcome, and the new The Last of Winter for Poser is a 13-item set suitable for campfire scenes and similar. May also interest Vue users.
Got too much global warming on your roads? Clear it away with the free Pisten Bully for Poser, complete with driver posers for V4/M4.
Easy Environments: ExoPlanet IV for Poser and DAZ Studio. Also suitable for scenes with camels, lost temples, pod-racers etc.
Skellig Island. Crude textures and some abrupt sharp edges on the geometry, but it may be suitable for making renders for 2D overpainting, if you need to depict the circa 650s monastic life on the islands around Lindisfarne etc. Or to make ‘old Luke’ fan-art for the (very iffy) new Star Wars movie.
Skellig Island could be used with the new dForce Midnight Monk for Genesis 3.
The free PP2 Exporter v2.1a for DAZ Studio. This an update of the old PP2 Exporter, so you can export in Poser format from inside the latest DAZ Studio. Comes with a user guide.
That’s it, more picks next month!
