Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Dark Guard dForce/HD armor is a complete, finely sculpted and fully textured clothing and props set for Genesis 8 Male(s)

This set includes breathtaking Iray shaders simulating actual, physically based materials (PBR). The Dark Guard collection produces stunning renders using any kind of light. This set includes all the maps you need for your renders: from diffuse to hyper-detailed normal maps.

The geometries are very optimized, and you can get good rendering results with low subdivision levels (even with no SubD at all!) or you can unleash all the macabre power of the Dark Guard thanks to its HD morphs, developed at level 4 of SubD, and run realistic cloth simulations, because Dark guard is designed to take advantage of dForce!

Additionally, Dark Guard dForce/HD armor is fully compatible with the Dark Guard and Wise Wizard Characters set and 13 additional characters and body shapes!

Additional Details

  • only pieces that are dForce are the Hood, skirt, chainmail, and Cloak
  • Please be aware pieces were made to replicate steel armor and although great care was taken to accept many poses they will not pose correctly to extreme poses
  • Using more than 30 frames (at least 45) will help many simulations
  • current frame and animation, simulating with Start Bones from Memorized Pose off is better to use
  • Some shapes may work with auto-follow
  • Product will not load or work correctly without the figure in the scene
  • Materials have been optimized for Iray and may not look the same in 3Delight
  • Only some pieces are dForce
  • The hand poses will need to be applied after each pose change
  • Some poses may cause collision so tweaking the pose or the figure's limbs may be necessary
  • When changing poses, do not forget to use the Clear Animation/Clear Figure Pose in the Parameter tab under Genesis 8 Female before adding another pose
  • Clear simulation from a scene before using a new pose and simulation
