Just a heads up - My 3DS Max 9.0 upgrade arrived yesterday and one of the first things I checked were the FS X Max 7 plugins. Sorry to say they do not work with the new version of Max. Apparently with now both 32 & 64 bit versions of Max the 3ds Max SDK has been rewritten thus all plugins will have to be re-compiled for the new version. I thought I'd mention this as I occasionaly see guys in various FS related forums talking of moving from gmax to the full version of 3DS Max. We won't be able to use Max 9.0 for FS until ACES update the exporter plugins for that version and make them available.
