Alias|Wavefront announced today that it is releasing the third iteration of its Bonus Game Pack, a game tool set available free via download at http://www.aliaswavefront.com/games
The Bonus Game Pack adds a "Bonus Game" menu to the standard Maya 4.5 user interface, giving users access to new tools that facilitate routine tasks of game art and level development, including polygonal modeling, texture mapping and level editing. These tools consist of scripts, supplemental UI features and plug-ins. Examples include: pre-light subdivide; UV editor toolbar; and extrude and chamfer vertex.
These tools, developed by the A|W staff, focus on game development and are currently standalone plug-ins. Several tools from the earlier iteration of the Bonus Game Pack are now included with Maya 4.5 software, including: poke; cut faces; and advanced snapping tools.
