i dont think you should worry about plugins like that :)
once you familiarize yourself with the capabilities and you find that it cant do something or something the way you want, then you should find a plugin for it.
no point in downloading a list of plugins if you're not going to use most of it.

but here are a list of some of the free plugins i have installed:
skelegon editor
Fi's_Wrinkle
spin polys
ska
Coffee
Bookmark
mmorph
yo_mirwgt
unreal

and a load of other scripts i find useful. many from http://thespread.topcities.com/

there are too many free plugins and lscripts to list, and i guess they all have their uses.

Its all good.........I have around 100 extra-plugins.:thumbsup:

I suggest you download as many as possible and have fun with them.
By useing them you will gain knowledge into why they were made,what makes them and their creators tick,and most importantly you have nothing to lose by doing so and only will learn from them.
Compare them to the ones shipped with Lightwave,use them them inconjunction with Lightwaves,and whynot....they are free.

Hey Remi, yeah there's no cheating in art, just do whatever you need to get the job done. If that means stinging feathers up your butt then I say go for it man.

There's that old saying "Are you looking out the window? or at the glass?"

Daz3d.com has some great modeling plugs. They're in my hall-of-fame, next to the plug-ins from DStorm and Fujio. If you haven't checked out

Segment Scale
Point Normal Move
Edge Bevel

you need to! And while the zip files on their site are for Windows plugs, they also have compiled Mac versions for OSX--If you e-mail them, they'll send them to you.

my workflow is much faster if I can model in the perspective view as much as possible. All 3 developers mentioned above have great tools to do this.
