Product Information

  • Required Products: None

“LIE Body Scars 2 for Genesis 3 & 8 Male(s)” is a collection of 16 hand painted scars that cover the arms, hands, legs, and feet scars. Also included is a mirror version of all the Iray LIE Material Presets, which gets you a total of 32 presets per generation.

However, we know your characters' skins will vary greatly in color, so we've also included three sets of varying scar colors: Light, Midtone, and Dark. Of course, you're free to mix and match the skin preset scars for even greater variation! In total, you get 32 Dark Presets, 32 Light Presets, 32 Midtone Presets for a total of 96 Iray LIE Material Presets.

Use this pack to show the struggles your character(s) has been though, injecting subtext into your every render! Whether they survived a battle, love to fight, or simply ventured into the wrong side of town, these scars will help tell your story! Note: The result relies on the skin settings of your character of choice as well as the lightning condition of your set. If you find that the glossiness of a scar is too strong (too reflective), we recommend lowering the opacity of the specular channel of the scar layer through the Layered Image Editor.

If you plan to use these on Generation 3 characters, remember to add the empty normal map before applying any of the presets to avoid seam bleeding.

Important: This product is not a merchant resource, so you cannot add them to characters for sale or giveaways. The textures also cannot be used to create scar brushes or extra textures.

Additional Details

  • LIE Body Scars NOT a merchant resource. The textures included should be used as they are; meaning you cannot use them to create scar brushes (for photoshop, substance painter or any other program) or to create extra textures.
  • As this product relies on the Base Genesis 3 and Genesis 8 Male UVs, the scars should apply properly to all Generation 8 Males (except stand-alone characters with their unique UVs). However, this pack will only work as intended on Generation 3 Males using the base UVs. So Generation 3 core characters should be able to use most of the scars (with variations in positioning) except for those across the seams (specifically, the shoulder surgery scar).
  • Though, as the promos showcase, the shoulder scar works as intended on Kimo 7 and Lee 7 Uvs.
  • LIE BODY SCARS 2 for Genesis 3 & Genesis 8 Male(s) is a set of 32 scars intended to add details to a character's textures via the Layered Image Editor.
  • Users can add more personality to any Genesis 3 & Genesis 8 Male character by applying or combining these LIE Scar Presets. While the presets have designed to work with their respective skins, they can certainly be applied to other skin colors to achieve different results. Each pack contains 16 unique scars plus a mirror version of each one, all of which can work together to create infinite possibilities.
  • The following information details the folder structure for “LIE BODY SCARS 2 for Genesis 3 & Genesis 8 Male(s)” and should serve as an overview of the product:
  • You’ll find three folders in your “Content Library” under the following paths: “People / Genesis 3 Male / Materials / FenixPhoenix / Body Scars 2” & “People / Genesis 3 Male / Materials / FenixPhoenix / Body Scars 2”
  • STEP 01
  • Includes a material presets to apply an “empty” normal map. As the icon explains, you should only use apply this if the character you are using (the skin) does not have a normal map. Most Generation 8 characters have a normal map, but Generation 3 characters do not. If your character has a normal map, you can ignore that preset and simply apply the scars of your choice.
  • We have also included an “empty” displacement map to use a) if your character does not have a displacement map (most characters do not) or b) if you’re not doing close-ups of the scars. If you are not doing close-ups, you can ignore this one to save on render time.
  • If you applied the displacement option but are getting visible seams (or you simply do not plan to do close-ups), we’ve included a step 03 with a material preset to get rid of the displacement.
  • STEP 02
  • Here you can find three folders containing the LIE Iray Material Presets for the different colored skins. Depending on your character’s skin settings, you may find that the Light Presets will appear too pink. If you want a more neutral color, we suggest using the Midtone Presets (which is the one which will blend the best).
