I hear that FSX is the end of the line for GMAX and FS. Do you think Microsoft/ACES will offer us a tool or at least accept an .x (or .fbx) file from any package which will export one? I fear the ability for an amateur to "tinker" will evaporate as the costs increase such that only top-level payware guys can do it. P.S. I know I made a similar post in June, but I've since heard more rumors about the demise of GMAX.
