You're lucky mine arrived this morning with only a 15% discount.

Yeah, the discount seems to be based on when you first purchased XP. My discount is for 25%, and the email made reference to me being a customer since XP 2.†

So, including the reduced cost to unlock my license, the full discounted upgrade cost for me is£195.

I'm on unlocked already, so the price comes to†£187 with the 15% coupon.

My original license was for 3.0 floating which I upgraded to 3.5, just to clarify.

In the same boat. Not a bad deal at all from what I've seen so far. Once i clear a few major expenses off the decks, XP4 and Merry Christmas to me.

How will the cloth compare to the C4D cloth?† Is it for more motion graphics scenes. Or can it be used for production use for a character cloth or like a car getting dent by cloth sim.
How will it compare with maya cloth? If its anything like ncloth in Maya I'm so down to get this new upgrade.

How will the fluids compare to Turbulence4D?† Or Fume Fx. What limitations will it have? I'm hoping It doesn't have a lot of limitations. I'm hoping it can be production ready by mid 2018., and I'm not just talking about motions graphics type of projects. I'm talking about vfx ready.

You can see some of the gaseous fluid capabilities in the IBC demo on their vimeo channel. A more detailed sneak-peak is likely to be shared the next few weeks. You can also look at the former product called Explosia, which is what their new module is based upon. From what I've seen, I will not be renewing my license for TFD, and at least one or two others here have said similar things in other threads, if it's any help. Not that TFD is bad just isn't developed as quickly and isn't as tightly integrated as a built-in gaseous fluids module obviously.†

Their new Fluid FX module has not been shown yet. It is probably the last thing they will show prior to December 5. Best for last and all that.

You mean using cloth material properties to make it work like a car metal body† being possible to be bent by an object or other car in an accident and not returning to the initial shape ? Yes that is a good question.† It is possible to do that with Max cloth.
 
  10 October 2017
I think it's possible to do that already with xPdeformer in XP3.5.

You can already do soft body collision and drive a mesh with it.
 
  10 October 2017
Ok. Also from tutorials i have seen think it might be done with C4D sofbodies too.

Hmm still no early bird offer here.

All early bird mails have gone out, it is possible we have an old e-mail address or spam got it. Please see:

http://insydium.com/x-particles-4-new-features/

or our social media.

It details what to do to get your discount, these have been split depending on the original XP version you purchased and offer an additional early discount on the upgrade price which is already 60% off the full X-Particles 4 price.

HTH.
