definitely indie. btw, studio is 1695 not 4950 :P

my comparison:
indie is the same as studio, but not the unrestricted license thing, but since its gonna get cracked, no need for studio at all, its between indie and pro.
about pro, its 1.way overpriced and 2.too overkill, rib? we wont even see renderman cracked anytime soon, and .mi? pft... its not worth the extra 4500 bucks.

so i say again, definitely indie

the price list should be changed...

i don't benefit that much from fbx...with working 2008 version and 2009 trial before just obj exports just fine with textures with it

i remember tintins post

Yesterday, I spent a whole day messing around cityengine try to solve export problem, and failed, so I uninstalled it, again.

Anyway, here's what I found:

1. Obj/Dae export plugins seems there, the export setting pages can even be activated, but when it goes to the final export stage, cityengine simply crashed. Error log reports error from grammarcore dll. ( Maybe that's why xforce patched the dll in 2008 release)

2. It's possible to write your own export plugins and plug into cityengine; Or you can write the whole export logic with python. ( the export interface is disabled for unkonwn reason, so u might have to write from scratch ). That's damn lots of work. And probally not worths it at all Unless u just getting fun with coding

3. Since Cityengine SE (with FBX/DAE support) is $3490 and no crack, Houdini Escape is $1995 and fully cracked, both has sharp learning curve, I choose to go Houdini route. At lease for now.

btw, the $495 version is still lack of FBX/DAE export option. I'm so curious how they implemented the instancing feature with FBX 2011 export.

i also do want pro's features like phyton and fbx but it's overpriced

The indie may be quite a reasonable choice to get started.


The only feature difference between an indie & pro is the
"Standard 3D format export"


Pro's Standard 3D format export

The industry-standard formats FBX® (2011.3) and Collada® (1.4.1) allow for flawless 3D data exchange. Supported features include asset instancing, multiple UV-sets, grouping or binary encoding. Textures can be collected during (batch) export.


Indie's basic 3d format export
The well-known formats OBJ, 3DS and DXF allow for basic import and export between CityEngine and 3D/CAD applications. Textures can be collected during (batch) export.


We have to pay an additional $1200 just to have the standard export feature
or we can be happy with the basic 3d export with all other features for just $495



Cry engine using city engine:-

That's good news. Still remember the hard time when trying to figure out what they hide from the trial version plugins.

@Neuxs, how is the progress on the medicine?
Got some free time here, I can work on the license generator part if needed. ( Assuming they did not change much from 2010.1 ). Let me know

Small update: License generator finished. Will start working on the export part (if possible to make it work).
Anyone got the retail format plugins, eg "com.procedural.formats.obj_1.0.0.201010051058.jar ", pls contact me.

cityscape is nothing but a simcity...it does nothing aside from drag and drop props and road generating...the geography is also achievable in other software like vue and just use ecosystem for already made props...you can also animate traffic in vue effortlessly..city engine's parametric modeller is more powerful and versatile...And why would we need to buy cityscape while we already have the cityengine waiting to crack

Since this is only news & actually didn't get the app in hand so I can't say anything about the release.

Meanwhile I don't want to hurt anyone here so I'll keep my mouth shut till I get a reply form the other end.

Just till tomorrow or else I may have to re-open the pool.

whenever I look back on this thread to see if there has been any action, the Jeopardy theme song starts playing in my head.
I can't wait 'til this is released.
