If there were tools available for Max, I'd be all over it right now... Never got the hang of blender myself.
I'm with you on this. An age creator would be the deciding factor for me subscribing to URU Live. Ever since myst I envisioned the day I could "write" an age. Now it seems like the possibilty is finally here. Like all of you I enjoyed exploring ages for the story and the beauty, but I also liked how they got my creative imagination working. I don't want to just passively explore, but also actively create. I'm sure that there some others who understand exactly what I'm trying to say.
If fans managed to create user content during the void of CYAN content when hope for URU was dim, then they're not going to stop now. Fan-created content is an inevitability for a community this dedicated. The question is whether CYAN gives us tools and its blessing in order to let fan creation flourish.
I guess we just have to wait for CYAN's final word on this.
