Legacy UVs for Genesis 3: V4

Legacy UVs for Genesis 3: V4

Victoria 4 shall not die. You can now use your Victoria 4 textures on Genesis 3 Female.

The UV maps for Genesis 3 figures use a UV mapping protocol called UDIM (U-Dimensional) and now divide the surfaces differently from preceding generations of DAZ figures. This means that some surfaces of Genesis 3 figures cannot use all the corresponding textures of previous generations because a surface cannot utilise more than one UV map.

However, if these surfaces are given a second skin in the form of geografts then the geografts can use their own independent UV maps to access the textures. Usually geografts are used to make geometric additions to an object, but in this case they serve only as surfaces to display seamlessly the otherwise unavailable textures.

There is a simple three stage loading procedure:

1. Click the 'Prepare G3F' icon
2. Load the Victoria 4 textures (material files must be in .duf format)
3. Click the 'Apply V4 UVs' icon

The preparation stage loads the geografts and creates Legacy Surface Selection Sets for Genesis 3. An optional toolbar obviates the need to navigate back and forth between folders. UV support for the genitalia is also included.

See the ReadMe file for fuller instructions.

This kit includes:
- Five geografts for the head, shoulders and legs
- Victoria 4 legacy UV maps for Genesis 3 and the geografts
- Simple scripted loading procedures
- Optional toolbar facility
