    Yes, Obese 2 is really extreme and I leave it out of most of my stuff. Same with Body Builder2 - although this one isn't nearly as tough as Obese2. It really depends on how much distortion is required to fit the morph and if it looks bad, I simply omit it.

    It's not just a matter of making the clothing fit - it's whether or not you can fit the clothing without texture stretching so bad it's not recognizable. That's why I put my UV template on the Diffuse setting so I can see how badly, and where, the mesh is distorting in morphs.

    Yes, the wings are rigged and have some movement. And the six "feathers" on the end are individually rigged also.

    This is based on Star Storm for Dawn. The body suit and harness are just a conversion to Dusk, with a new texture. The helmet and glider are brand new. I am thinking I will release the Star Storm for Dusk with the bonus Storm Hawk textures, glider and helmet.

    Of course, still waiting for the Dawn version to be in the store. Hopefully soon....

    Here is a rear view showing some of the wing movement. The tail also moves in two axes.

    RE: My 3d Goals.

    Seems like I really took a hit this past year. I had a product in QAV with a few issues that needed solving, and then, with apologies to Alisa and the team, I just couldn't get back to it. But late this past winter, I have been slowly making some headway. So this is what I have tentatively in the pipeline, not necessarily in the listed order:

    1. Finish product that is languishing in QAV (Star Storm)
    2. Break up some WIPs into smaller chunks that can be sold as sweet deals, eg: Morning Commute broken up into briefcase; umbrella; newspaper; and respective poses for each.
    3. Another project in the pipeline can also be broken up as sweet deals. It is called Fire Safety, so far consisting of an antique or vintage style fire hose reel; a fire extinguisher (modern; also hope to make an antique one); and an exit sign.

    Oh, and then hopefully around late summer I can get a new computer. I am reaching the limit of what I can do with my current setup. :mad:

    No worries about Star Storm, 3W :)

    Glad you're getting back to things!

    I'd buy Morning commute as a whole package for DS if you have plans on keeping it as a whole set or bundle of the single pieces.

    I still plan to release all the parts, just individually as I complete them. They can probably all be part of a value stack.

    An umbrella made you think of dance moves? Oh, of course . . .

    I'm singing in the rain
    Just singing in the rain
    What a glorious feelin'
    I'm happy again
    I'm laughing at clouds
    So dark up above
    The sun's in my heart
    And I'm ready for love
    . . .
    Just singin',
    Singin' in the rain

    OK, sorry about that . . . I just couldn't resist. :D

    That's funny, I have been thinking about a set of singin in the rain poses. But I wouldn't mind if someone beats me to it. ;)
