March Madness: Day 8

Day 8 March Madness SalesDay 8 and today’s the day the eagerly awaited Measure Metrics for DAZ Studio launches! Now you can get real-world measurements not only for your girls and guys, but for just about any prop too.

What will you do with it? Make your own full-figure 3D body double? Create your perfect virtual man or woman? Or maybe scale items to just the size you need? Whatever your motivation, it’s a handy tool that will work with metric and U.S. units of measurement.

Joining it in the new releases are the Starship Crew Uniforms by Valandar. This artist creates many of our weekly freebie props and vehicles, but has also been behind armour and combat uniforms such as Order of the Wolf for Genesis 2 Male. Starship Crew Uniforms are also made for the G2M guys, but look closely at the promo and you’ll see a female crew member looking good in this outfit so you might have acceptable results with clothing autofit.

Want to save more on both of these and today’s FiberMesh hair release? Then join the Platinum Club and your discount rises to a weighty 58% off. PC prices are shown below followed by an asterisk (*), where they apply.

Make the DAZ3D March Madness page your starting point to take a closer look at any of the products or artists listed here today. You can keep track of your ‘punches’ (reward points for qualifying purchases this month) at the top of the same page.

**For some reason, there always seems to be a recent release or two that’s late to the party, but gets fixed later in the day. Today it’s the fairy (or is that faerie?) outfit by Mada. Look out for it being added later if you are an early bird like me.

I’ll admit, I wasn’t immediately sure what use the Poke-Away2! for Genesis 2 product would be when you can add a smoothing modifier, but this product is for when that and other common fixes don’t work. It has an amazing 221 morphs to fix all your Genesis 2 (generation 6) poke-through problems. If you’re new to this, ‘poke-through’ is what happens when your character’s skin shows through clothing, especially around the chest and with muscular arms and thighs. The promos for this product show off its function very well — take a look.

Don’t skip NecroGothica HD too quickly if at first glance you think the product is the skimpwear worn by the model. In fact it’s a high definition environment with a highly-textured surface and an opening ‘egg’ prop.

Today Only Discounts on Selected Items

Not hard to guess the theme of today’s featured items! If you like the idea of alien races and strange beasts, with a side-helping of mechanical beings, your imagination will run riot today.

I’ve added in the ‘type’ of product to give you a better idea of what’s on offer. The difference between a ‘creature’ and a ‘character’ is that a creature is a stand-alone figure, a character is a combination of morphs and materials that will transform your existing human characters, e.g. the Midnight Martians which work with Genesis 2 (both genders). ‘Morphs’ will also transform existing characters in weird and wonderful ways, but without the materials — something to watch out for if you buy a morph product.
