Product Information

Sunny and fertile - the Lands of the Sun were created for use with the new Millennium Environment, which is twice the height of the original and uses six texture panels. The extra height means you can use tall models in your scene, such as buildings.

This set has textures for Poser 4 and Poser 6. Poser 6 users should turn on raytrace settings in order to get the water effect shown here.

Building, barge and horse not included.

Product Notes

  • Welcome to the Lands of the Sun - may your adventures be fun and many :-)
  • The Lands of the Sun set is built to complement the Pharaohs of the Sun theme at DAZ3D. It consists of a desert and a river scene, with water optimized for Poser 6 - if you use it in P4/PP, you will have to tweak the water, ditto w P5.
  • Please be aware of the fact that the water in older versions than P6 will not look as good, this due to the use of the new functionality in the Material Room.
  • I have done my best to make the set as easy to use as possible in P6 and older versions, but here are some tips:
  • Using the P6-files:
    • Go to your Character >DAZ Environment folder
    • Click LoS1_P6 or LoS2_P6
    • Click Render > Render settings…
    • Ensure the Raytracing checkbox is checked, otherwise the water will render black
    • Adjust your camera settings 'til you find one you like
    • Voilá! - One shiny water-render
  • Tips:
    • Tweak the refraction color in the advanced material editor if you want a different color water - remember that the Nile is a big river, and it's not very blue - more muddy and/or green.
    • Play with the light colors in order to create stunning effects
    • Play with the bump map settings in order to vary your results.
    • Remember to scale the environment>body to 200% or larger in order for it to fit the Sacred Barge
    • Remember to scale the desert environment up to 400% or larger in order for it to fit to King's Pass
    • The set has been optimized for the king's Pass and the Mill_Env default lights
  • Using the P4-files:
    • Go to your Character >DAZ Environment folder
    • Click LoS1_P4 or LoS2_P4
    • Tweak the water's reflections and transparency to suit your needs
  • The desert background needs to tweaking, bar the Mill_Env's built in terrain morphs
