    the 33% who say not enough improvements to modeller I bet haven't tried it, I would have upgraded for in viewport deselection alone, that has taken a lot of tedium out of modelling for me, or persistent fall off widgets that allow you to reopen a tool and carry on tweaking where you left off, ok so there are no really big ticket changes boo-hoo but the ones that are there are worth their weight in gold.

    Its fairly light featurewise but I'm glad to see they have finally added the constraints to Bullet, I use the subpatch wire renders a lot and will want to try out the new Genoma version 2. I would have liked to have heard more about architectural changes and speed improvements to geometry handling as LightWave Modeler is quite poor with it.

    I tried it (and use it heavily every day at work and freelance) and i also think there is very little in modeler. They fixed few tools (mainly stuf fi reported what' snto workign on multipel layers now it is) and few bugs but no significant change or feature is made there (sure there is few workflow boosters liek morph maps stuff and dbl click to deselect) but so for somene who model primarely it's not worth upgrade so i full yunderstand those who think same. BUT layout upgrades are pretty nice and tema obviously wokred hard for months to bring that so i upgraded regardless of lack of modleign stuff to support them and hope next time they are realyl serious about modeling in LW .

    I'm not getting the difference between "yes, of course" and "yes, the upgrade is woth it".

    Doesn't "yes, of course" imply that "the upgrade is worth it" already?

    Not necessarily . Some people upgrade to support you guys regardless of what they think is worth, so yeah it's OK choice in poll.

    So there should be something like "Not worth it, but I upgrade".

    As a user happy to upgrade because I like what I see in LW2015 , I would choose the first.

    Yes, of course! I already did it! AND I think the upgrade is worth it!
