Not that I have seen, Cajun and I'm the supreme freebie junkie. I would have snaffled one up as quick as if I'd seen one. Hopefully someone else knows where one is lurking and we can both grab it.

I hope so too. I would be down with that for sure!!

Ohhh, I remember that one Pen. Yes, you'll need to finish it at some point. ;)

Thanks...still need to do lots of work on it. I need to learn to do rigging from scratch also as this is one thing the transfer utility won't work for.
In regards to fitting the other tails the main problem would be fitting it to the figure Cajun. It would need to match around the abdomen and hip area. I've done it with one of the older ones but I used the clone I made. Two points when fitting in DS. Don't forget to use a smoothing modifier if you can as that will fix a lot problems as it provides collision. Also push modifiers when dialed in around .03 can work really well, I discovered that they can also push in as well as out if you use negatives.

Ooh thanks for the tips. I know I will need them one day, maybe sooner than later since I've been back to pushing boundaries again.

Anything special I have to do for it to work?
I just moved it into place… I I think I may have scaled, no wait I think I actually used the dials that are in it just said it a little better around the waist . it's been such a long time since I tried itI've forgotten , I'm sorry . just bring it into this scene, do not conform, and trends XYZ it into place …

Yes, and I'm definitely going to have to try that out for myself, as I have that old mermaid set.

Just wanted to add that having attended a webinar recently on rigging in DS I now know how to rig this so it's no longer on the back burner and hopefully I'll get chance to finish this soon. At this point I'm not sure if it will be a freebie or a paid for product.

I can do some promos for you when you get it finished.
