Miscellaneous Props (Poser Format, For Poser Or DAZ Studio)

These props are all in Poser prop (PP2) format, except the globe which is a Poser figure (CR2). Since Poser materials don't look too good in DAZ Studio I also provided DAZ Studio materials. You can check the 'Readme' files for a full file listing - there should be links to open the ReadMe files in your browser - they're plain text format.

A simple poseable globe figure for DAZ|Studio and Poser. You can spin the globe, adjust the axial tilt, and align the hoop as you wish. Poses are provided for changing the frame colour and for showing/hide the frame. There are poses for applying planetary textures (only the earth and moon include bump maps) and simple parameters (axial tilt and scaling). There is also a pose for applying a high resolution (2048 x 1024 PNG format) earth texture and bump map. Finally there are a .daz and .pz3 scene file for a mini solar system. See the readme for details.

Tested in DAZ|Studio 3 and Poser 6 with no obvious problems. Any constructive feedback, positive or negative, would be most welcome - this is my first ever 3D model !

A 130-face pawn with morphs to convert it into a knight, bishop, rook, queen or king, in Poser prop (pp2) format. Also included is a 26-face chess board. The board and morphing pawns can be loaded individually. Alternatively the board can be loaded along with 32 morphing pawns with their positions and morphs already set up. In this case all pieces are parented to the board and will translate, rotate and scale with it. Four game positions are included - the initial setup, a standard opening, a mid-game and an end-game. All pieces can be moved independently to get the set-up you want.

Related items: 3DC003: Ultra-Low-Res Morphing Chess Piece

***UPDATED 9MAR11*** This is primarily a low resolution Poser/DAZ Studio chess set designed to be used as background filler. It is sufficiently detailed for moderate close-ups, but is not intended to be be the main focus of an image. The Poser prop (pp2) files with all 32 pieces on the board and empty trays has 12,587 faces (or 7,263 if you close the drawers and delete the empty trays). The pp2 with all the pieces in the trays has 4,525 faces. The full/empty trays are parented to the drawers, which are parented to the box. The seperate chess pieces (but not those in the full trays) are also parented to the box. Thus the box can be moved, scaled and rotated and everything will stay correct in relation to it. All parented items can be moved independently with respect to the box. The .obj files are now part of the Poser/DAZ Studio package, and .mtl files are no longer provided. (N.B. The OBJ files are scaled down to Poser sizes, so you should scale up by a factor of 100 for use in other applications). Modelled in Blender 2.49b, tested with Poser 6 and DAZ Studio 3.1 Please let me know if you have any problems with this model - I'll do my best to resolve them. Constructive criticism appreciated.

A simple model of a decorative wooden tissue box. It's a two-part prop, with a separate sliding base. There are four separate pp2 files so you can load either the box without a base, the sliding base only, the box and base together (base parented to box), or a one-piece closed box. The base loads so that it's in the fully closed position if you also load the body. All variants load with the box sitting on the origin. The box is about the size of a standard Poser figure's hand. A DS materials preset is included to give a similar appearance to the Poser renders. The whole thing's been tested in DAZ Studio 3 and Poser 6 with no real problems
