3D Studio Max 2011 to ship with Cityscape
Autodesk has very recently announced the release of 3ds Max 2011. In terms of urban modelling, a very interesing development regarding the new version of the acclaimed modelling package is the fact that it will be bundled with a promo of PixelActive's Cityscape.
