FPE Tentacle Arms for Genesis 8 Males

Tentacle Arms for Genesis 8 Males* consists of two geografts that will transform your character** into a fantasy creature by replacing his Left and/or Right Arms with tentacles. Three sets of geoshell wearables (Left Arm Only, Right Arm Only, and Both Arms) ensure a smooth and stylish transition between your character and the attachments. Geoshell Transition Presets for use on Genesis 8.1* are also included!

Ten designer set material presets are included for each Geoshell Transition, for a total of 30 distinct looks!

Of course, we value the importance of customization and resource efficiency, so all the color combinations are achieved from the surface pane inside of DAZ Studio to avoid cluttering your runtime with redundant maps.

Instead, the geoshell has been set up with neutral texture maps (shades of grey) and masks positioned in different channels (overlay, emission, top coat and metallicity). This means you can try your hand at your own color combination by choosing a designer set as a starting point and changing the colors via the surface pane.

As a bonus, we also included 7 transition presets for the double-arm geoshells and 5 transition presets for the single-arm geoshells. 12 face transition presets, 9 eye color presets & 8 visibility presets & 4 gloss presets to help you tweak and refine your vision.

What’s more, the torso and face is completely textured, which means that if you’re up for the challenge, you can create your own opacity mask (black and white mask) to create a unique transition for your character by plugging it into the cutout channel. Just keep in mind that the seam between face and torso is not patched, so your transition shouldn’t connect the face and torso, as those areas are intended to be used with separate masks.

In total, you get 14 wearable presets, 30 material presets, 46 LIE presets, 2 pose presets and 42 partial materials & utility presets!

Perhaps your character was cursed by a wizard. Or maybe he’s part of an ancient race more in harmony with nature. Or maybe character fell prey to cruel human experimentation. Whatever the cause, we hope this pack will help you bring tell your story!

*Note: This product has been designed for Genesis 8 Male characters, but we’ve included limited compatibility with Genesis 8.1 Characters. The Geografts will work on Genesis 8.1 Characters, and we have included an 8.1 Geoshell so the materials can be applied properly regardless of the difference in the surfaces.

However, while we have included LIE Presets marked with an 8.1, these should only be used on Genesis 8 Skins (meaning, skins using the Genesis 8 Base UVs).

**Limitations: While we tried to ensure the arms would work with human characters, stylized or extreme morphs (Underbelly, Dolb, Drutherson, for example), and/or characters with altered hands (aliens, creatures, and monsters) will twist and distort the arms. Another character shape that causes a known issue with the arms is Kayden 8.1, so his shape is unsupported.

*** Important: Apart from the LIE Presets, all Material Presets should be applied to the Geoshell, not the character. More information is provided in the PDF Read Me File.
