    Here is a small LW store, mostly freebies, but a few 3$ models: https://www.sharecg.com/b/5/3D-Model...2041%5D=1&pn=1

    >> should lightwave not have its own marketplace and content store with prebuilt scenes models demos etc .... like above, I know theres liberty3d but
    that site layout is very dated in comparison to the above links.
    We are working on a solution to this actually. The question is, will you all play nice and get on board?

    Double standard. The entire thread's been raised over and over as well, but you only object to Steve's repetition, not that of the OP.

    A LW plugin developer must maintain their own web site and do their own marketing. Blender add-on developers don't need to work that hard (self-hosting is optional). They can focus on developing.
    All the Blender add-ons I own were produced by people who run and maintain a full web site complete with video tutorials and often a Git hub listing, pretty much how Oliver does, not to mention the Blender model has all the links for plugins integrated into the program itself, once a plugin is installed links to the developers web site are accessible from within the preferences panel framework, I don't see NT going as far as doing this, plugins, menus and keyboard configs are all entirely separate dialogues in LW rather than one convenient panel.

    Yes and in addition to that these plugins don't work well together with core functions and other 3rd party addons. An exception are nodes where I see most potential in LightWave, but without 3rd party developers like DP and db&w it also wouldn't be as useful.

    LW's "new" architecture didn't turn out to be the most modern of all 3D applications as Rob Powers promised for 2018 but rather the opposite is true unfortunately.

    I was referring to the actual marketing. Building and maintaining a web site is helpful but it is not marketing. You need marketing to get people to come to your web site. Even with third party Blender developers running their own web site, most of their traffic will originate from a "market" web site. I use add-ons from markets like gumroad and free sources like github but I would have never discovered them without a promotion on a centralized market directory.

    How would anyone discover this LWO loader (http://www.neko.ne.jp/~asagi/P2P/Plugins/blender.html) if not through a marketplace directory that points you there?

    But, they could. Those are all just file copies and updates to CFG files. It can be automated.
