  • CK Game Factory (Chikara Kojima) has come out with a great plug-in pack for trueSpace 5+: PolyTools. It includes 17 plug-ins for only $20. The free version (which has a limit of 200 polys) can be downloaded at PrimitiveItch or CK Game Factory. It's definitely worth a look, the plug-ins are very useful.

Posing, animation, model import and other features will follow later. Eventually DAZ Studio will be a modular program, i.e. customers will be able to choose and buy those components that they need, among them dynamic hair and cloth-authoring.
