Grazie Maximus, come un cretino avevo dimenticato che XSI se l'è presa Autodesk, una volta mi ero scaricato proprio quella versione per provare un cityengine ma non la trovavo più... :rolleyes:

Magari anch'io come kris ci tiro fuori qualche particolare interessante da XSI, alcune feature mi hanno sempre attirato...
