Brilliant idea to help us spend tonnes of money in the asset stores:... explained below.
Hey, team, you know I love you, because until the makeover to your content store, I'd bought nearly everything in it.
But sadly, it's not a store any more. It's an "experience"... And I can see how it's meant to be a high end quality experience.
It's now the iMax of 3D Asset Showcases... without any coke stains on the floor.
But it's lost me as a buyer because the landing page for Reallusion.com is now so graphics heavy, I have to wait 12 seconds before it loads properly, and all I get for my trouble and patience is the side view of a big head -
which wouldn't be so bad if it was a different head each month, but as detailed and clever as it is, it's not exactly attractive.
And if it was Youtube, I'd lost interest 6 seconds ago... but I still need to wait an extra 4 seconds before my account icon appears at the top - which is especially annoying if I've got a ticket to lodge or glitch to report.
Then the 3 little icons with my account, shopping cart and whatever the heck that document is meant to be (mouse-over for text explanation is not working) move from the top right hand corner to somewhere that's not quite centre - so it sets off my ocd and makes my eye twitch... LOL
Then to find the links to the content stores - I have to go hunting for them, scrolling down past that stubbly head that re-sizes, wasting even more time...
And even after I do click on the content store, I just get shifted to another welcome page that's putting itself between me and the things I need to see to spend money.... so I need to scroll way down past that to another set of choices that stand between me and the stores.
... If I was merely responding to an ad, and hotlinking directly to a page where I get exactly what I came for, then it's a certainly a luxury experience for those who have time to sip wine and nibble cheese while they leisurely shop for treasures...
But when I need something, I'm more like an Eagle. I want to swoop in, grab those babies and make off with as much as I can carry.
So when you're re-vamping your store, can you please consider something more like this luxury shoe store
It's elegant, yet efficient. It doesn't need to show us how luxurious it is. Smart buyers know quality when we see it.
But all those handy menu's make it easy to buy 10 pairs of $10k shoes in 10 different styles and brands in under 10 minutes...
instead of taking 10 minutes to find and research only 1 asset in your store.
It would also help if assets that we already own can be flagged as "purchased" akin the Daz Store - especially when we need to own other packs before any add-on packs can work without watermarks.
Honestly, I'm always seeking to expand my content library.
Please make it faster and easier for me to do that, without being bombarded by images of stuff that I already own - helps me see and find what I've missed so I can just swoop in and grab it.
(And no, the 1-click verification thingie doesn't work for me. I never verify my content, if I can avoid it, because my library was far too big when you first launched it, and down here in oz our data allowances are far too valuable to waste like that.)
Food for thought, at least...?
Either way, I look forward to any improvements you are planning!
There's still much love in this corner for your content.
