New MadCar 3.0!

MadCar 3 is a plug-in for 3DS Max for quick rigging of wheeled vehicles and their animations by simulating the control.

This new version allows rigging vehicles with any number of wheels with any of their mutual arrangements. Any number of trailers is also supported.

There are simplified behavior setting for each of the wheels and suspension as well as fine tuning, this allows to simulate motion with qualities of a race car as well as heavy trucks. Animation is created during the simulation in real time. Simulation can be controlled by the keyboard, joysticks, game controllers, or steering wheel. "Following the object" mode is also supported

The package also includes a procedural map that generates traces of tires on the surface on which vehicle is moving (V-Ray only).

System requirements:

  • 3ds Max versions: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, all 32 or 64 bit
  • 3ds Max Design : all
  • OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, all 32 and 64 bit

2 new collections of models

Today we would like to present you 2 new collections of bushes and fir trees

These are highly optimised 3d models of bushes and fir trees in 3ds max format, including large textures and optimised to relatively small number of polygons whilst achieving high level of details.

Major update to MultiScatter - now includes MultiPainter!

This latest version of MultiScatter includes several improvements and bug fixes, as well as a new object type and method of scattering - MultiPainter.

MultiPainter can arrange objects on the surface using a virtual paintbrush. This does not create additional geometries which therefore simplifies the process of working with large arrays of objects.

Placement can be done both on one and multiple surfaces at the same time. Multiple objects of different types can be scattered simultaneously.

MultiPainter includes most current types of randomisations available for MultiScatter objects.

Once created MultiPainter objects can be modified in several ways, including changing their location, scale, rotation, as well as creating copies.

Animated objects are also supported. In addition it is possible to convert MultiScatter objects into MultiPainter with few restrictions.

MultiPainter objects are fully compatible with V-Ray and Mental Ray.

Latest version and the manual can be downloaded from the forum.

Update is free to existing MultiScatter owners, please read the manual as the installation procedure has changed.

In the unlikely event of your old license key not working, please contact us for an update.
