correct, the exporter is for Max 6 only. I have just recently gotten Max 6, and have so far done one ship, only partially however, and so far it looks good ingame, and does fire its weapons, after about 20 minutes of running through the coding. Only problem I am having right now is glossyness, shields, and collision mesh, MaP if you could help with this, it would be appreciated. Here is a picture of the ship, originally done for SFC.
Life is what you make it.
