I'm sad to hear that =( *Huggles* It's for you ladies' sake that I support it as well- BD should cater to everyone's needs, especially since it appears to be quite a significant demographic.

I also still remember how the cockatrice's medium size has stirred up a debate to have an "in-between size", and I agree. The medium is still hefty, and the small (for people like me who like mediums, but maybe not always want to feel SUPER filled) was too small.

Maybe, one day, everything will be perfect! ;)

Hey folks,

We're going to be putting BD Labs temporarily on hold as we've lost the person who was primarily responsible for sculpting and managing the programme. Please see AthusNadorian.com for more information on what happened.

There are still a lot of toys with 3D models that'd be eligible for BD Labs, and it's likely we're going to try and focus on these initially for BD Labs until we have a 3D sculptor again.

Given the recent changes, we're kind of at a standstill on this - not least of all because we've lost a lot of experience in good toy design principles with Athus's passing. We will still be pursing BD Labs, but it'll be delayed by a few months due to the fact we're down one person, and will initially require a design to have a viable 3D model in order to get made (again, until we get a 3D sculptor on staff).

I'm really sorry that we've had to do this, and I wish I could be posting this news in better circumstances, but unfortunately there's not a lot any of us can do.

I will still be working to get a design submission form up promptly, and on building all the voting infrastructure and so on for exhibiting the designs. As mentioned above, this will probably be delayed by several weeks due to the fact we've all had to drop what we're doing, but I'm moving to the US in a few months and will be focusing full time on BD which should help significantly.

Thanks everyone for your understanding in this difficult time.

Understandable. I'm just hoping that the 3D model for the Kirin is considered viable, and that the company still has the file(s). :tinfoil:

Same, though it was Athus that did mine. No problem with waiting in such circumstances.

Nope, you should be all good when the time comes, and I think Athus did models for a few more... But others were submitted by other people, and I'm definitely concerned about them.

Wasn't there mention of something happening a while back that caused them to lose a bunch of the 3D files? I'm quite possibly misremembering though.

I'm not really sure, that's why I'm vaguely concerned. I know files have been lost before, but all the ones I actually remember being lost have come from non-BD modelers.

I believe we have all the models that we've sculpted in-house on our workshop fileserver. There's a ton of them; we'll be going through them nearer the time.

This forum sticky has a lot of the the forum discussed toys and tons of them have 3d models for viewing. I wouldn't be surprised if a number of them or all of them are in the batch of files Varka was talking about. But obviously don't quote me. Just trying to point ya in a helpful direction.

I have a question about the BD Labs "penises only" policy. Does that simply mean no sleeve-esque toys will be allowed, only phallic ones, or that it specifically needs to be a penis? Many of us are super excited about the potential for getting the Mistress Whiptail up-and-running, but is it not an option to submit it?

Well, that wasn't the answer I wanted, but thanks for letting me know. Must have missed that while reading through the prior comments. :cry:
