if you want to load meshes in your d3d-application the normal ase-format should be easy to use. i used it for an open-gl prog. the strucure of this format is realy easy and you have any information you will need. and the best: i heard you can make this file with 3DSMax. Max also have a optimizert for low-polygon models. hope i could help you.

You''ll need a 3D modeling application. Milkshape 3D is free for 30 days, and only costs something like $20 after that. http://www.swissquake.ch/chumbalum-soft/ . On the first game I worked on, (not that long ago) I did all of the artwork in 30 days using MS3D. Other programs, such as 3D Studio Max, Lightwave, and Maya cost several hundred dollars. If you have cable or dsl, morpheus/kazaa is always an option. You''ll probably find that you need to use your own file format. How you do that is up to you, but you''ll probaly want to get the vertices out of a .x file.

Proceeding on a brutal rampage is the obvious choice.
