    Nice. Tutorial covers the beginnings of modelling.
    Will Part 2 be about UVW mapping or about more advanced modelling (working with edges, vertices, welding, inserting new vertices, cutting, etc.)?

    do you have to use 3ds max 2012 or can you use any 3ds max? I downloaded the citiesXL suite and I tried using 3ds max 2014 but I'm given this error message during launch: 1.PNG and this one after I click "ok": 2.PNG

    When I launch 3DS Max and try to find the cities XL exporter nothing shows up, there is no option for it. 3.PNG

    So, if I need to use 2012, how do I get it? Autodesk no longer offers that version online, and I can't find it anywhere, or am I doing something wrong here?

    @iiMKenny

    yes, you need 3ds max 2012 for that plugin. theres is also one available for 3ds max 2008. other versions are not compatible with it. unfortunately 2012 version is gone from autodesk website so the only way to get it is to search for it "somewhere else"

    of course u can also use the new plugin for xxl only. but mods created with that one will crash xl game version. good thing about it: it will work with every software that supports .fbx file format, for example max2014.

    Thanks Mr X^2 haha. For some reason the website won't let me respond to the message you sent me. It keeps marking it as spam, but thanks for the information and the help
