Those of you who enjoyed the induction of Ember Riley into the Dark Rift universe might be pleased to know that you won’t have to wait until her first official DCV comic appearance to enjoy her nude 3D turntable. Just check out the bottom right of the website and you’ll find a freshly rendered turntable of the young lass, showing off her lovely curves. Kendra has been replaced, but there might be a future repository somewhere (maybe a submenu under the Animations tab) for older 3D turntables. We’ll see…
And speaking of animations, we revamped the Animations page. You no longer have to leave the page to view them. Instead, they are embedded directly in the page streaming from a video player that we integrated some months back but just hadn’t had time to get up and running. We added some animations from the first two DCV-enabled comic releases for new visitors to sample and whet their appetite on, though likely most of you have already seen those.
Unfortunately I have some bad news from Epoch:
The Dossier release for tomorrow has been delayed till the weekend.
Since the previous weekend, Epoch has been having big issues with his main render pc.
Also he ran into some bugs with Octane, that delayed his other pc because he had to correct the bug manually to get the High Quality you are used to from Epoch.
Hopefully today after some new hardware, Epoch’s main pc will do be back in business.
And then can get back on track with the renders.
Apologies for the delay, but sometimes trouble comes in three. This was one of those times.
Signing off to find Epoch some ice to cool down…
**** update 12 March 2014 ****
Well bad stuff happens in three… true. The new vidcard for 2d was Doa. With some tinking the main pc is now at least running again. Updated the top slider to show the new date… a very small preview of the hotness that is Ember!.
*** update 15 March ***
Talked to Epoch just now. He’s finishing the last renders (takes hours for 1 render) and finishup up the product setup.
If all goes as excepted it should be live at 2pm PDT!
So hold on to your hats, it’s going to be wild ride.
We need to take the store offline temporarily to swap out our SSL certificate with a different one, as we make changes to our backend beta site that will roll out to live soon. One of the big changes will be a fix for the registration error that was generating 404s, even when registration completed successfully. The other ‘fix’ is that we are redoing the way the newsletter registration works, since my webhost is requiring double opt-in. So you will all need to re-register for the newsletter when that change rolls out live. If you don’t want to get our newsletter, that’s fine… but who’s to say you won’t miss out on access to an exclusive gallery just for newsletter subscribers? Oh, wait, that’s me… I’M to say that. No newsletter subscription, no exclusive gallery. Capiche?!
I had myself a long, stress-free weekend of relaxation, so I apologize for not posting anything for over a week. But I wanted to offer up the redone texture for Clara with the new areola/nipple texture and adjusted skin tone, and allow you all the opportunity to vote to either keep the new texture, or go back to the original.
So the clear winner was texture #5 from the poll post I ran last month. A lot of people wanted no change, but opted for #5 due to the fact that they most resemble Clara’s current areola. #1 was also a close contender, so I went ahead and did a version of the redone skin texture with those as well for you to vote on.
