For you modders out there who need a tool to do some content, there's a new free version of Softimage available for download
. Version 7.5 is here and you can create some 3D models for your noncommercial game or if you just want to futz around with how to do modeling. I used Softimage a long, long time ago when I dabbled in 3D modeling and it was a nice tool back then. I might have to pick it up just to see how far it's come since I last used it.
