    • How to work with the Ridge Outfit and dForce (wearable presets only)
      • This method works best for simple standing poses.
        • If you want to set up a dForce simulation, please take the following steps:
          • 1 - Load G8F into your scene
          • 2 - Apply your chosen wearable preset to G8F with the dForce compliant outfit
          • 3 - Set up an animation with 61 frames (you can raise this value if you want the piece or pieces to settle and drape fully)
          • 4 - In frame 1, set a keyframe (click on the little key icon with the plus symbol inside, to the far right end of the bottom icon bar) with Genesis in default pose and your freshly loaded simulation ready wearables preset
          • 5 - Go to frame 25, select a pose for Genesis, then add a new keyframe in pose 25
          • 6 - Go to the Simulation tab inside DAZ Studio and change the following default settings: Start Bones from Memorized Pose - OFF, Frames To Simulate: Animated (Use Timeline Play Range), Collision Mesh Resolution: Base
          • 7 - Hit the “Simulate” Button!
  • If you find the cape drapes are too angular, you can add subdivision to the cape's mesh (go to the main menu of Daz Studio and select Edit → Figure → Geometry → Convert to SubD).
  • How to work with the Ridge Outfit and dForce
    • This method works best for more challenging poses.
      • If you want to set up a dForce simulation NOT using the wearable presets, please take the following steps:
        • 1 - Load G8F into your scene
        • 2 - Apply your chosen outfit piece to G8F; please note that the dress has a very long train which will interesect with the floor. You will have to lift the figure above floor level in frame 1 to avoid intersections!
        • 3 - Set up an animation with 61 frames (you can raise this value if you want the piece or pieces to settle and drape fully)
        • 4 - In frame 1, set a keyframe (click on the little key icon with the plus symbol inside, to the far right end of the bottom icon bar) with Genesis in default pose and your freshly loaded simulation ready wearables preset
        • 5 - Go to frame 25, select a pose for Genesis, then add a new keyframe in pose 25
        • 6 - Go to the Simulation tab inside DAZ Studio and change the following default settings: Start Bones from Memorized Pose - OFF, Frames To Simulate: Animated (Use Timeline Play Range), Collision Mesh Resolution: Base
        • 7 - Hit the “Simulate” Button!
  • If you find the cape drapes are too angular, you can add subdivision to the cape's mesh (go to the main menu of Daz Studio and select Edit → Figure → Geometry → Convert to SubD).
  • For some scenes you can try to reduce the Air Resistance values in the simulation settings (Simulation Settings tab, Environment Settings). This will help prevent ballooning of the simulated parts and will also help them to settle on the figure earlier.
  • Customizations
    • Some of the different configurations for this outfit use the different options to show/hide parts of several pieces. You can find these options in each of these mentioned outfit pieces in your parameters tab under General/Hide-Show.
    • To reset each of the pieces to their default state, please use the included utilities found under People/Genesis 8 Female/Clothing/Arki/Ridge/Utilities.
