    I started out years ago using 3D Max 8 and 9 and then didn't have the time to keep up with the SIM community. I am getting back into it and have access to several of the new versions. I noticed when version 17 the mappings were off. I was able to correct that in some cases. So all you heavy users out there, which version is the best to use now?
    thanks

    Will the newer max versions work with the NR2003 .pas export plugin files? Are there newer versions?

    No. Only 3dsmax 8 works with the .pas export.

    Max 5, Max 6 And Max 7 do also and I think Max4.5 If you can find a copy of them they works with the .pas export.

    Max 8 is the normal version to use, basicaly any modder uses max 8 for nr2003.

    I use 8 but with the mention of newer versions in the conversation here, I thought best to ask and make sure.. Thanks for the info everyone.
