Death of GMax?

Hello all,

I did a search for this here, but I did not find any hits. I also don't recall seeing a post about this.

It looks like GMax is getting axed:

For the time being you can still download it at:

http://www.turbosquid.com/gmax

Moderators, should this be posted at Holowan also so that all modders are aware?

I wonder why?
Do they think it's detracting from sales of 3dsmax? Cuz at the price they charge, verry little is going to increase sales IMHO....

I updated the link in the tools sticky a few weeks ago.

It looks like the abandonment of Gmax has something to see with the recent purchase of Alias (who made Maya) by Autodesk.

This is not surprising in the least bit. I guess this is further motivation to get copies of 3ds Max for I and my friend/business partner for our development of a video game.


Working so, we will learn history as a tree knows it; we will climb into shapes printed in the seed; we will become time made visible, years made fragrant; we will make of concentric memory a stem of praise; we will inhabit daylight at a trees own speed; we will be travelers who remain, patriots to this ground.

I haven't used it much, and don't know it really well, so are there any related downloads that I wouldn't have gotten with it, that aren't going to be available, or is it just the main program?
