This journal will act as a hub for my various superhero rings and scripts, to show in one place what I've uploaded, as well as to explain how they work together.

Some of the rings are models I've previously created and uploaded in .OBJ format, and a few are new, but in all cases the packages I'm uploading now are Daz Studio and Poser ready. The rings are in .DUF format, made for Daz Studio 4.6+, and in .PP2 format for Poser.  The zip files contain a folder each for Poser and Daz Studio; simply unzip the contents of the appropriate folder into your library/runtime and they'll be there, ready to use. The rings all load in at a standard size -- approximately 3 centimeters in diameter at the widest point -- and with all colors already loaded, though they are easy to apply shaders to if you wish. All rings load in at the zero position.

In order to make it easier to use the rings with various figures, I have also made packages of positioning scripts. Each package is for one figure, and contain 8 scripts -- one for each finger (other than the thumb) on each hand. The script will properly position the ring and parent it to the middle joint of the chosen figure. These scripts work with all of the superhero rings the same way. Download the appropriate package for your figure (once available) and unzip the appropriate folder to your library/runtime. Once you have it in your content library, if you're using Daz Studio, select the figure and the ring together (with nothing else), and run the appropriate script; if you're using Poser, just select the ring and apply the appropriate pose (the figure will need to be in the scene in order for the pose to apply, thanks to an oddity in how Poser works), then parent it to the appropriate finger joint of the figure. I don't guarantee that its positioning will be perfect (if it were easy it wouldn't be necessary) but it'll be pretty good for a start.

This page will list all the rings I intend to upload, as well as all the positioning script packages. When a package goes live, this page will be updated with a link to it where the name currently is. If a character you use isn't on the list of positioning script packages below, I am not currently intending to make a positioning package for it. Feel free to ask; if I have it or can lawfully obtain it freely for DS, I'll generally be happy to add it to the list. (You can ask even if it's not available for free, but this will generally mean I'll have to already own it.)

One final note before the lists: Because most of these are works of fan-art, they can only be used in non-commercial renders. However, the generic rings may be used in both commercial and non-commercial renders.

Ring Packages (Daz Studio and Poser):
Positioning Script Packages (Daz Studio and Poser unless otherwise noted):
Note: Due to a misunderstanding when making the initial poses (I don't actually wear a ring myself), the poses put the rings on the center portion of each finger rather than the base of the finger. This will be corrected eventually, but it may take a while to get to everything. Characters still in need of correction will have an asterisk (*) next to them.

There are plans for a few more rings, and of course as new figures come out, they may be added to the positioning packages. And, as stated before, if there's a figure not listed above that you want a positioning package for, feel free to ask and if possible I'll add it to the to-do list.

for the various figures, which makes these items that much more delightful and useful! :hug:

You're welcome. I figured the fitting scripts would be a good idea, since I personally get tired of adjusting things to hands all the time myself -- so, programmer logic being what it is, I figured a little work now would save a lot of work later.  And while I'm sure some of these characters are less likely to be using the rings, well, you never know...

D'oh! Silly me, I asked for a Genesis script for the rings and your planning on making one. *LOL* Then I read this.

This is so awesome you decided to do this. This will make loading your rings a LOT easier. Your rings are simply the BEST GL rings anywhere. :)

Yeah, it was past time to do this... since turning an OBJ into a Daz prop is so easy nowadays, it doesn't make sense not to.

And yeah, scripts for Genesis will be coming. But I wanted to get the rings themselves up fairly quickly, so I decided to go ahead and launch them and let the scripts come in as they're ready.
