Depending on what version you are using the model will be located in one or several folders.
With Poser and DAZ Studio you will have trouble initially seeing the model. The reason for this is because the model is huge.
In Poser preview mode, you will need to adjust your Main Camera in adjust the “YON” setting to 5,000+. Use the Cameras provided with the model or set your DollyY set to:
DAZ Studio doesn’t have the preview “YON” issues Poser has, so if you pan out enough you will see the model. Use the Cameras provided with the model or set your DollyY set to:
Because this model is actually a series of separate smaller models you’ll want to be careful when moving it. In Poser and DAZ Studio, the model is set in an hierarchy format with the “City Base” part being the parent. In Vue, the model has been grouped into section for easy movement.
This model does have some morphs that are available in the Poser and DAZ Studio versions.
Because of the modular nature of this model, many different forms of customization are available. Numerous additional wall, arch and tower parts have been included. The Vue and Poser versions have very simple billboard plants on the temple garden areas. Heavier displacement can be used to make these areas more three dimensional. You can also import/add more 3D plants to the scene from other vendors such as LB Botanicals or Greenworks.
Within Vue, materials have been arranged to take advantage of the Eco-system feature to create much more realistic plants. I suggest using 100% density on these areas. Suggest painting the areas around the temple for more control; sometimes the plants grow into the temple stairway.
Improving the Main and Temple Plazas You can remove the existing material from the Main City Base part (RBaseInt) and replace it with a higher resolution tileable texture in Vue or Poser/DAZ Studio (later versions).
Because of the epic scale of this model, placing additional figures and props can be challenging if not discouraging at times. They get dwarfed by the architecture. Included with the model (on Poser and DAZ Studio versions) are “Place Figure” poses. These poses will place any figure at a specific location on the model. The poses only include X-Y-ZTrans information for the BODY section, so they will not interfere with your pre-existing poses. Poser props cannot be moved with these poses, but if the props are parented to a figure, they’ll go with the figure, then once transported… unparent them. There is a matching set of Camera poses included in the Poser and DAZ Studio versions.
