I do love it when quality content goes below $5. Renderosity currently have an “all items at $3.50” spring sale on all the items in their store’s large Clearance area. I spotted the following $3.50 goodies among the 643,000 variants of V4 + glamour clothes…
Of special interest to Vue users:
Curious Greenhouse for Vue. Although note that it’s also currently on the Cornucopia store in a nice $5 bundle (with Curious Stacked Shack and Curious Shaker Row).
Curious Mason Jar Lantern for Vue, an add-on for the Greenhouse. Note that… “the flame will glow beautifully in a Global Radiosity Atmosphere” in Vue. Another add-on for the greenhouse is the new free pair of Gloves for M4 and V4 on Renderosity.
Looking rather old now, but IanMPalmer’s Desert Village might just about pass for a distant town in a southwestern USA scene or on Tattoine (Star Wars).
Cydonia 3 for Vue is a sci-fi city backdrop in 3D.
The Tenement is an old American city tenement building from the 1880s-1950s.
The 7 Keepers of Magic castle is not really my thing, but it would certainly be an impressive medieval fantasy castle to have rising up from a large Alpine forest.
Beau Quartier, a construction set of classic Parisian rooftops and building facades for building large city scenes of pre-car Paris.
While you’re at Renderosity, you might pick up Coflek-Gnorg’s quality free new Bunker Hill 20th century war scene.
Swidhelm’s Robustus and Iuvenis and Tyrannosaur dinosaur with its impressive skin texture. Six poses come with the Tyrannosaur, and there are more elsewhere on Renderosity in another pack by Swidhelm.
There’s also Swidhelm’s Fluvialanguis which appears to be a fantasy-prehistoric crocodile.
FA Tavrohk. Not especially impressive seen up-close, but… “everything possible has been done to ensure that the creature uses very little memory, so you can load a whole herd even on systems with modest amounts of RAM [memory]”. So far as I can tell, there are no alternative free textures or poses or horn types out there for the Tavrohk. The Bolladon and the Moo are probably more suitable for use as similar ‘alien planet’ herd beasts, for science-fiction landscape artists.
Snow Leopard by AM for Poser. Poorly served by its promo pictures, but like AM’s SaberTooth Reloaded it has excellent pre-applied fur which renders quickly.
MS13 War Mammoth Armour. Requires the DAZ base African Elephant and its Columbian Mammoth add-on, but it appears that the Mammoth is no longer sold. Some will have that in their runtime, but it’s there called mammuth so you’d never find it via search. If you don’t have it then I’m guessing that, with some wrangling, the armour rig might be made to fit onto DAZ’s LAMH Wooly Mammoth?
Poisen’s War Banners .OBJs could accompany your army of Frazetta-style war mammoths.
Also note the set of Cat Poses for the Millenium Cat, if you need more in your runtime.
SteamPunk BFG and V4 poses.
The alien Octos for M4.
Lair – Eco character preset for V4. The previews leave it uncertain if this is full-figure, or only waist-up.
The Divine Order by Oskarsson for V4 and Aiko 4.
Atom-0-Ray Guns. Not well depicted by its naff main promo picture, but the design is nicely retro and there’s a huge set of parented poses for V4 and M4 in the classic pulp-art style.
Flying Cadet Lola Pepper for V4.
Madness Lab looks a bit basic in terms of textures. But it could be useful for those making a comic strip using Poser 11’s Comic Book mode, with characters such as Doctor Pitterbill and Lenore (and her Raven), and the Lab is more or less in the Lenore style. Also of interest in that context may be The Back, also on Clearance.
Privateer Twin Hull U-boat submarine.
Cryo Chamber, SkyCaptain3D’s first model.
Popular characters, new looks + props/clothes:
The semi-toon Grandpa. Although note that Grandpa requires M4, M4 Morphs++ and Capsces’s Morphus morphs pack (the latter no longer sold?) to work. Still works without Morphus, but it’s not quite so toony.
Kali Fairy for Nursoda’s Kali.
Mongolian Princess for V4, which looks like a starting point for making a second-trilogy Star Wars princess.
And lastly… don’t sniff at V4, she’s got Biscuits Noses for V4… with noses “custom sculpted in Zbrush”! 🙂
That’s it. I skimmed through everything in Clearance, and that’s the stuff which caught my eye.
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.
