    Wow! Wonderful update. The FBX exporter update is great! Just tried it with Unity and no more multiple materials to deal with. The bullet additions, the camera matching, the importance sampling, Genoma 2 and all the cool little workflow stuff and features. It's going to be hard to go to my family's Thanksgiving dinner, I just want to play with LW2015. Great Job LW3DG and Happy Thanksgiving! WOOT! YAY YAY!

    It seems to be way faster with PRMBlur on deforming geometry.

    The Clip Maps saved with surfaces and new Bullet constraints are my favorite things so far. Well done LW3DG.

    I am particularly disappointed that LW3DG couldn't even see fit to say something to Charter & post-Charter members about the situation prior or concurrent with the public announce, that's especially disrespectful. Acknowledging the situation, perhaps with some kind of token gesture, would have at least mitigated the sting somewhat.
    Oh - I'm in this post-Charter group also. THAT would be why.

    The only prices that we have reduced are those of the full license and of the upgrade. The product price can change but your special HardCORE pricing program guarantees that you will never pay more than the price you locked in at for a total of five upgrades.

    Can we upgrade from Europe directly to the NewTek store bypassing the German one?

    Can anyone comment on this? Looking at the video, there was some kind of space rover vehicle using a lot of bullet dynamics. Do I understand this correctly that it's possible to rol/turn wheels using bullet?

    A video demo of it would generate a new sale.
    I'm also very interested in genoma and whether it's the right thing in terms of rigging mechanical stuff such as wheels, rods and piston stuff on a steam lovomotive. A good answer to that as well will generate an instant sale.

    Motors are included in the latest Bullet offering... which include linear motors and rotational ones too. So, I'm guessing that the wheels are using those, but not 100% sure.

    EDIT:
    --------
    That planet rover setup is included in the demo scenes when you buy, and yes the wheels are motors using bullet to drive them. Very cool!

I personally don't put much stock in instant over-night imaginary products that appear from nowhere or that type of smoke and mirrors. Worthwhile advancement requires solid hard work tied to a logical internal design roadmap. We are working tirelessly to make LightWave perform for you in the coming months and years as we evolve it with the latest technology while at the same time maintaining the special characteristics of LightWave that make it special to all of us.
    Just awesome Rob!

    Nice one folks.

    Won't be upgrading this month though, the car just dropped a valve yesterday, complete engine rebuild required... :-(

    So the special price I'm locked into is the same price everyone else is paying?
    Wow I feel so 'special' right now.
