Just your "ordinary" swedish MMD user that likes to make textures, charts and model edits. I've been doing MMD since 2011 and still have a burning interest ;) I rly like the character Hatsune Miku and therefore love to collect models depicting her.

I'm the owner of CituSmoothie (link found below) where I post download links to various HQ MMD models. If you have a tumblr, please make sure to follow me there!

Besides MMD, I like to draw (especially manga-inspired-art), read fantasy books and play video games.

The Future of CitruSmoothie - Part 2

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 20, 2015, 6:55 AM
I just thought I should be updating people on what's been happening (and not happening) since my last journal. 

First off no, tumblr has not responded to me yet, and to be honest I've given up any hopes I had of them being able to restore the blog. I mean if they won't even bother giving me a reply then the chances of anything happening are pretty slim...

Ok, so let's first talk about the problem of getting a hold of all old links and pictures from Citrus. As most of you already know, it's possible to still access an older version of the blog through the WayBack Machine (*/citrusmo…) but the latest version is from May, and as the blog got shut down in the beginning of September this means 4 months worth of models have been lost. 

A fellow deviant Gryminal commented on one of my older journals saying he could help me get all the information (links and pictures) back from Citrus. From what I understood from his comments, it seemed he had already been able to rip the entire blog... up until the very last model I uploaded. We talked a little back and forth but when I later sent him a note asking him to send me these files... *poof* he was gone. Now when I'm writing this journal he hasn't been online here on DA for 4 weeks. 

So, I had to think of some other way getting the information back. The links were more important than the pictures, as I hadn't (and still haven't) yet decided whether I should keep the old picture style or completely change it... Fortunately for me my partner Duekko, who have been working with me on the blog since 2014, had saved what we call the "sheets" for all the models since she started helping out. (The sheets are the model information, which we uploaded to tumblr; name, creator, translated textures, physics etc). 

So as it looks right now I have all the information for the models that are missing from May to September, and it shouldn't be such a big deal re-adding them when the new site is up and running. 

Then let's talk about the second issue, which is starting up a new site. In my last journal I talked about that I didn't plan on starting up another tumblr/blogger/wordpress or whatever, but that I had gotten help and was planning on actually start up my own site. 

Another fellow deviant seungja gave me an offer I couldn't refuse; he would be able to build the whole site for me, set everything up and give me unlimited storage space for free :D He had been a huge fan of Citrus and really wanted to help me out. So we started brainstorming... coming up with lots of cool ideas for a new kind of search engine, a new way of featuring models, how to allow people to become members on the site, "model-of-the-month" etc etc etc. He even built a small "demo site" just to show some really cool features. I was truly impressed.

Then suddenly he stopped replying to me... and after about a week he wrote me a note saying he had been in an accident... but if I gave him a few days he promised to compensate for the time lost. I immediately wrote back to him, asking if he was ok etc etc. But to this day he still haven't replied to me, and he sent me that note on October 2nd... so it has been a little more than "a few days". Actually he hasn't been online for 2 weeks and haven't opened my last note. 

So right now I'm a little lost on what I should do. Should I wait any longer for this guy or just move on and try to think of something else? And if I should think of something else... what should this "something else" be? 

Any suggestions are welcome.

Mikuo 2.00 and Alternative?? Opinions needed by Xoriu
Mikuo 2.00 and Alternative?? Opinions needed
As a lot of people seem to like the old Mikuo head (Ver. 1.5) more than the new one (Ver. 2.00), I did a small experiment. It's basically just a head-swap with changed textures; I removed new Mikuos head and attached the old one. 

In the picture above Mikuo 2.00 can be seen to the left with the updated Mikuo "Alternative" to the right. 

What do you guys think? Would you like to download him? If enough people are interested I'll put him up for download. 

(I should also probably mention that I did some body adjustments to make Mikuo Alternative appear more lean). 

2.00: 3
Alternative: 20

Both Mikuo models can be found here:
