I've just downloaded and installed the much anticipated IC6 opened it up and want to get busy and play with my existing content to see 'the differences' ... and I'm immediately disappointed.
I have a very large library and I am seeing a chunk of it appear in the not-installed window....
and the best you can do is advise me to either re-download and install all the content semi-manually or, as a kind of after-thought, take a 'non-recommended' path of cutting and pasting between my iclone 5, directory structure into the iclone 6 directory structure?
.. and yes, I did see the link to a third party util. ... but really?
Granted, I can understand the advice to NOT just pick up the root of your IC5 directory and copy it in... but I would have thought that an interactive content migration tool (that operates directly on your local content) wouldn't have been too much of a distraction, or effort, to your main game with this product launch. It would have saved, what I imagine must be the collective grumble (nay rumble), your IC5 user-base must surely be making at the moment.
Oh my God! ... This is going to take me hours!
Grumble grumble grumble...
(and great! I like the idea of moving over to a Daz style downloader linked to an inventory on both marketplace and RA store .. Really, I do!)
Ok.. Perhaps a little quick on the trigger with that one. ... I'm used to poser and being able to point to different runtime libraries at a whim.
... One ginormous cut'n'past job currently running at the moment. ... Not sure what stuff transferred won't work when all is said and done (and therefore forever likely to hog disk for the ever after) .. but I'm hitting 'no' when prompted to 'overcopy' .. and praying like hell for the best when my IC5 library is moved into place.
I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.. I've been looking forward to IC's debut for sooooo very long.
... Right now I feel like a kid that's been told he cannot go out to play until he's put away all his (old) toys!
