What is the 3ds Max Plugin?
The 3ds Max Plugin (PlasmaMAX) is what Cyan originally used to create all the ages found in Uru. It was released in its built form by Cyan on the 13th April, 2010. On the 6th April 2011, Cyan released the source code for the plugin. As it stands, it will only work in two versions of 3ds Max - versions 7 and 8. Trial versions of both of these Max versions can be found on the internet. The 3ds Max plugin offers the user a reasonably user-friendly interface with which to develop maps for the Cyan Worlds Engine, without as many scripting requirements as PyPRP. However, as it requires out of date versions of Max, its usability by the general modding community is limited.
