Notes:

  • The set features Iray materials for West Park Basement. As a result this is required for use. Please also ensure you are using the latest version.
  • The set also includes 2 preloads (WP !Pre WP E and WP !Pre WP) for the West Park Iray (to load the upper coriddor section). If you dont have it, it will throw an error, but this will not impact the use of the rest of the product (as shown in the majority of the promos).
  • I noticed a slight light leak when rendering the promos, between the walls and the ceiling. Given this has been in the set since it's inception, I took the decision to leave it there. Given the sets are quite dark is not noticable. If you do see it, it can either be blocked out with a plane within Daz Studio or postworked out. It's not laziness on my part, but to update the original set as well creates some potential issues.
  • The same file structure is kept from the original version, so existing scenes can be updated to the Iray shaders by simply replacing the materials using the material settings provided. You will find new Iray specific scenes and materials in each products 'Iray' specific folder. That said, I have expanded some of the filenames now to make it easier to read what each file is.
  • Scene files as used in the promos have been included, which are located in each products folder in Scenes\Iray\Promos. The other files are all located in their original product folders.
  • For Iray promo scenes, please ensure you disable the setting 'Ignore when opening a scene file' under Render Settings if you wish to load the settings contained in those scenes (ie whatever settings I personally use for that particular scene)
  • Wall and Ceiling Strip Lights have been added in this version.
  • Emissive surfaces such as lights, are denoted by the suffix E. Lights without this suffix are essentially 'off'.
  • Water puddles have also been added, they correlate to either the corridor/basement floor pieces and come in a variety of patterns.
