Do you have $50 or so of 3d products on your wishlist? If you do, and your budget can stretch to it, why not buy them today and you can get a base generation 6 (Genesis 2) figure for free. The figures included in this offer are Victoria 6*, Michael 6, Teen Josie, Teen Jayden, Girl 6, Gia, and Olympia. (*Currently free in store, so unless this changes, I’d choose one of the other figures!) You’ll save $39.95 if you can take advantage of this offer and are not a PC member. The saving falls to $27.97 for club members, but it’s still a nice bonus to get on top of buying some other assets for your library.
As I mentioned yesterday, it seems to me that DAZ is now holding back most of the new stuff for the annual PA sale next month. Nothing new was added to the store today and the dress I wanted still hasn’t appeared. This seems like an unwelcome repeat of the Cheongsam dress release, where Fisty’s lovely dress was admired in the forum and as a result was held back to be bundled with a figure for a much later release. Maybe the Garden Tunic is suffering from the same destiny and won’t come out until Lilith arrives. Does this kind of thing build anticipation for you? I’m guessing that’s the intention of this strategy but personally I just find it annoying.
Fast Grab continues to be neglected at the moment too. However, the ‘Summer of Freebies’ selection of free models is still available so be sure to collect any you don’t yet have. Update: today’s free model is Enchanted Island from ARTCollab. This is an especially nice one with statues, grass, sky and 6 light presets. The ARTCollab candle collection from yesterday must have been removed to make way for this one.
As a late but important addition to today’s post, please see further below for news of the HiveWire 3D’s big sale which is about to launch in celebration of their first birthday.
Not much new to see in Fast Grab but the warrior outfits are great value if you’re into that kind of thing.
For the weekly giveaway, go to the Freebies Page.
‘Summer of Freebies’ models can be found via the banner on the store homepage.

New Today on DAZ3D: Thursday 7th
Nothing yet. I’ll update this if anything new is added.
Where are the HiveWire 3D releases?
I used to have new releases to list from HiveWire every week or so, but lately they have all been Poser only. As a DAZ Studio user, I only add products we can all use. Nothing against Poser users, I just don’t want to disappoint other Studio users, something which would only get worse if for completeness I then added all the Poser-only products being released on Renderosity too.
Important Update: Hivewire 3D are getting ready to launch their 1 Year Anniversary Sale to wish Dawn a very happy birthday. There will be 30% off select categories and you can use double the reward points at checkout.
Please visit the site and show them some support during this exciting sale — which will indeed have plenty to offer the DAZ Studio community as well as Poser fans. Not everything on the site has to be used in conjunction with Dawn, either, though she is still available for free so you have nothing to lose by downloading her.
