Years ago (around 2007), I took 3D animation and modeling classes and was part of a 3D modeling high school club. I even won 1st place for a couple of years at a county fair for one the larger metropolitan areas in the US, so I had some skill. I purchased a lifetime copy of 3ds Max 8, so I also have professional grade modeling software, but I see online that the exporter is only for 3ds Max 2012. I need to brush up on my skills some and find time to do this, but I was wondering if there was a way to partner up with someone and if 3ds Max 8 models will be useful for someone to even export in the more recent version (Is there some more advanced part that I'd be lacking?). I don't mind buildings I create being exported and uploaded by another user if the person simply lists 3D modeling credit to me in the description of the end result. I'm also not quite sure where to really start. I've gathered that cm are the scale and 40m x 40m is at least one of the plot sizes. Should I scour the web for information or is there a particular site/thread that I should start with that has up to date (or at least CXL Platinum) information available? I own XL, XL 2011, XL 2012, and XL Platinum, but decided against paying for XXL until it is less than $10 (It doesn't seem like much of an upgrade, so $20 was too high of a cost) if that helps any of this effort.
