I Found a post over on another site with some useful links, I had posted them in the private section here but figure i would also make them available to the public for those who are interested

This is a compilation list of some of the better(IMO) or more interesting tools that are either free, cheap, or within the range of most indies(under $150). This will give you a well rounded set of tools to pick and choose from for most of your game development needs. Most are independent of 3DGS, but there's a small hand full that can only be used with it. I've also included some valuable organizations and reference sites. This list will be updated every few weeks using new additions from myself or other users. I won't include them all, so check the posts for even more choices.
The main point of this list is to disprove the myth that huge sums of money have to be spent to make a quality game...at least when it comes to choosing your tools:

Hey, I can add to this list one more link.
It fits very well under 3D category - www.cgtrader.com. It is online 3D model marketplace where 3D designers and artists from all over the world can upload their works and earn good money, because there are activation fees, not commission.
I hope this link would be useful for somebody.

Hi, I would like to recommend a 3D model search engine: Yobi3D. You can search with simple keywords and see the results in 3D. It's useful to find some already made 3D models for prototyping.

Please check it out and any feedback is welcomed.
