    For my part, I am interested in native Lightwave clouds; I don't own Houdini and although I have and use Blender, I would like to try to keep as much as possible in Lightwave.

    I don't think that it's the criticism so much (because most of your points are valid) as the venue.

    If the thread were less of a "hey, Lightwave is finally getting some press again! YAY!" thread,...

    In the end, maybe it really just boils down to different approaches to modeling.

    I use 3ds Max sparingly nowadays, but even when it was my primary software, I rarely made direct changes to the...

    In the context of what you believe LW lacks, it is facetious to omit Layout simply because it doesn't have the word "model" in it.

    When you say that Modeler can't do procedurals, or everything is...

    I'm not arguing what LW lacks; the only issue I have is when general statements are made that are only partially true.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "simple, direct modeling".

    It's like you are trying to reduce Modeler's capabilities to the level of an app you would find for a mobile phone or something.... when...

    Struggling in its latest version? How so?

    If you mean the brand as a whole, I can see it... but for my money, the latest version has been the best of the crop.

    You could also add an HDRI as a textured environment and change your light to an environment light; environment lights (depending on the HDRI) provide some excellent soft shadows.

    Very nice render!

    The paint could probably do with a little roughness to add a little noise to the specular... compared to the car on the right, the spec is super smooth.
