View Full Version : Where is Leia model?

01-29-2008, 10:58 PM
I just got done watching some vids on IKBoost.com. Very cool stuff. Anyway, at one point Colin loads up a model that he says comes on the content DVD. It's called Leia and for the life of me, I can't seem to find this model on my disk. The only thing I can figure is that he is referencing to the LW 8 content DVD and that my LW 9 DVD doesn't have that character on it... Or any other characters on it... Hey, where did all the characters go that used to ship with Lightwave?

Yeah it was in the LW8 content

Is there anyway of getting that?

I'm not sure the content you are looking for is at, where I'm about to suggest...

With that said, on the site, go to "customer care>registration"

Then look for bonus content on the list. I assume it should be there, but like I said, I am not 100% certain.

Hope this helps!

I believe there is a legacy content directory on the second content DVD, not sure it will be in there though.

Second Content disk?! I only got one in mine... I have DVD that says "Content and 3rd party DVD" and the other says "Program CD"...

I think the 2nd content disk was part of the LW8 release.

Oh, wait...was version 8 the blue colored box?

01-31-2008, 05:47 PM
Yup. Looking at mine right now. 1 program disc and 2 content discs. (LW 8 - blue box) :)

Found it .. it's under Objects\Characters. It's 465K. I'd post it, but I don't think I can post product content on the forum.

Phew! I thought I was missing a disk there for a second. OK, I see now. I wonder why they choose to actually get rid of content instead of building it up? It seems odd to me. That's really to bad though. You would think that if you had a new version of the program (9) that you'd be getting the latest and greatest right?

Try to ask someone from NT, they lurk about on the forums aswell :)
Maybe they'll be so nice to email the model to you.

Kind of strange, I don't see a content download from the "my downloads" section for version 8. So, you may be out of luck unless you have the discs. I would post it too, but like Hopperz said "I don't think I can post product content on the forum".

I believe the reason content is dropped is because the author has optioned it to NT for only a specific time period or number of LW versions.

I'll bet you could find someone who would part with their old discs pretty cheap. (I'm keeping mine though) Depends on how bad you want the model I guess. Someone tossed me a few bucks a while back to send him the 5.6 Mac disc because he wanted the Deloean model off of it. I had an extra in the closet, so I was glad to help. I just have the one set of 8 discs though, so I'm going to hang on to them.

Someone has the content discs on ebay right now if you are still looking for this.
