March Madness: Day 4

3-d Models on Sale March 4thYes, it’s day 4 of a whole month of bargains in 3d content from DAZ3D.

As a customer, Platinum Club member, and enthusiastic DAZ Studio user, I love to keep up with all the deals. Last year was my first March Madness and while it was fun, it did leave me confused at times. So this year I decided to share on IndigoJanson.com my records on the daily savings and what’s new in store. That way you too can see at a glance just how much you can save on those must-have new releases, featured items and of course all the stores you’ve been hoping would go on sale.

To buy anything here, or see how you are doing on reward points (this March they are called punches as you get to apply them to a punch card), just hop on over to the DAZ3D March Madness page.

If you need more information on rewards, exclusions or getting the maximum discount, I’ve got some handy notes back on the Day 1 post — the link will take you right to them.

As for today, for me it’s the best day yet! You can find out why below. (Here’s a very obvious hint: Amsterdam.)

But how about you? What gets your credit card running for cover today? Here’s the contenders, and further down you’ll also find today’s other featured items.

As I hinted above, the new Canal Street by Dexsoft-Games caught my eye immediately. What a fantastic set this is. It comes complete with canal, bridge, various Dutch style houses, bikes, and all kinds of street accessories. If you’ve ever been to Amsterdam, you’ll appreciate just how well it captures the city.

I’m also strangely drawn to The AntFarm’s Death Cap HD, a fungi-inspired morph for Genesis 2 Female. There are a few artists over on DAZ3D who break the mold, and The AntFarm ranks high among them.

Don’t pass over the Hebe Outfit too quickly if the main promo or Greek inspiration don’t do it for you. I almost did as I didn’t care for the female model, but there are some gorgeous textures with this pretty dress. Love the one that Teen Josie is wearing, especially! It’s easy to imagine most of us finding a use for Khory’s lights, Karth’s flip flops and PandyGirl’s earrings too.

Today Only Discounts on Selected Items

There are treasures to be had on items that are not brand new, too. These are Today Only, except for Sci Fi Bladed Weapons which have made themselves at home in this category.

As before, I’ve marked those that have extra Platinum Club discount with an asterisk (*). These are either DAZ3D’s own releases or show DAZ as a co-vendor, and attract a bigger discount. (Note: today’s Yamaki Rapture item is from the PC $1.99 selection — if this was included in error, it may be removed.)

If you’re not yet in the PC and plan to build your 3d content library this month, it’s well worth joining. Read up on the Platinum Club benefits in this post or just go ahead and grab yourself a PC membership if you know you want to.

Today’s items spare a thought for the men and youngsters among our 3D models. There are some must-have outfits for the guys, along with the vehicles they need to cruise around the streets. Plus you can create your own kids the easy way with Zev0’s highly-popular Growing Up morphs.

Artist Store Sales: Save 40% Today

I’m going to update this section later as I’m not certain it lists the correct ‘second day’ artist stores. If we’re lucky, we might also see the Olympia 6 Pro bundle in this list. For now, here’s the new additions today, as listed early on.

Update: no change so I’ve added the other artists in. I must admit, I’m confused at how they decided this as some are back again from Day 2, others from Day 3 have disappeared, but maybe it will all even out over the month.

Note that the ‘genre or speciality’ is only my interpretation of major themes, meant to help readers more quickly discover artist-vendors who might interest them.

Date Artist Genre or Speciality
4th The AntFarm Futuristic and Fantasy
4th Karth Clothing, Footwear
4th Khory Poses, Shaders, Dynamic Clothing
4th RawArt Creatures, Monsters and Fantasy Characters
4th Shox-Design Clothing and Hair
3rd Faveral Large-scale environments, Buildings
2nd ironman13 Poses
2nd Nightshift 3D Sci fi and Steampunk
2nd Sickleyield Morphs, clothing, utilities, props

So there we have it, some real treats today. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
