Hi, does anyone know if the new exporter for Maya will work in Maya 2015 or are there any plans to bring one out for that platform, I have tried the one for Blender but when I export a model from Blender it shows as a shiny metal/glass like surface that I just cannot seem to get right.

I do not want to spend thousands on Maya 2016 or 2017 and I am too old to call myself a student so cannot get it free, I hope Giants will bring out an exporter for Maya 2015 otherwise the money I spent getting it will be wasted as I only used it for modding FS 2017.

I guess the lack of response means that Maya 15 will NOT be getting exporter support anytime soon, shame I really enjoy modding this game but cannot afford to buy another program to do it, especially at £2000+. So it is either learn Blender or not mod I wonder which I will chose, bad move Giants.

What do you expect? They (Giants) keep care primarily to tools they actually use for development.
Other utilities are probably more a 'hobby' by devs, which use certain tools at home.

To be honest: we should be lucky if the devs concentrate on fixing game bugs instead fiddling with exotic utilities for a minority. *g*

The old exporter seems to export the files over okay so I am sticking with that until the Devs decide to think of us (not so wealthy) modders who cannot afford to upgrade to a new program costing thousands of pounds.
