TA-DA! It's ... gone.portfolio
Didn't see LowMan on this list. It's a pretty neat script collection (for maya 5 through 7) - it does work on Maya 7 (despite what the site says).

Thanks to Highend3d rig competition alot of new good rigs have been submitted. Fantastic to have so many people contribute to the community. The possibilty of gnomon dvds works wonders also probably.

Not sure if this should be included here but it is a set of scripts to rig virtually any Vehicle instead of an actual vehicle rig. From four wheel to Multiwheel sets per axle position.
The vehicle can be setup to "autospin" the wheels by moving the vehicle in the X and Z planes. Rotation of the rig in the Y Plane will automatically set wheel rotation to compensate of vehicle moving in the opposite direction after rotation.
Also addition spin can be added or blended on top to simulate wheelspin etc. Also each wheel can be switched on or off, also each wheel can be set to stop or rotate in reverse at any time.
Vehicle rig also sets up steering for front (and rear) with independant steering for both front and rear steer with different ratios for both if required. Also front and rear can be switched off or even reversed to simulate the type of steering seen on high performance cars.
The rig also sets up fully independant and controllable suspension for each wheel. The vehicle will tilt and swivel based on position of wheel ground locators. If these are constrained to a ground plane then suspension will automatically operate.
Scripts allow +/- rotation of the whole vehicle without rotating the main control rigs. Also added additional controls for independent control of each wheels suspension and now able to vary speed and rotion direction of each wheel individually. Rig can be attached to a Ground Plane and or a motion path using scripts.

Hi, thank u for the list, this is very useful
It's a shame that I have two old & unfinished Rigs in the list! I should update/finish them asap! ok, I'll do, but after I finish my current free rig, it is in very beta stage (sketchy), my students yesterday had tested it but I need more ppl to test it, brutally and savagely!
Link to: Chuz beta 0.5.7
please notice that:
- no facials, yet (just jaw, eyebrows and eyes)
- some connections are not done yet
- some things are missing too (like fk, stretch, etc)
- some things are not working properly yet
If you have any idea please PM only or reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

It has been an incredibly long time since I have posted (or made) any of my personal work online. During the writers strike I found I had a little bit more spare time than I was used to, so I started work on a character that I wanted to release to the community. The strike ended as quickly as it started and I never got the time to finish it up. Until now.
When I set out to design this rig, I wanted to make it easy to use 'out of the box'. That meant no need to install any shelves or scripts to get right into using the character. It also had to update fast (EI: No fancy muscle systems or dynamics this time around). I picked a cartoony character because I wanted the challenge of working on a gooey/stretchy rig. The name is because I'm not very good at making names and Tonga is a place I would like to visit one day.
Special thanks to Tyler Hoolaeff for the animators perspective and Devan Mussato for rigging suggestions and QC. I hope you enjoy playing with it.

Here is a link to a free Maya Rig called Rockwell. I plan on doing a lot of updates to it, let me know what works and what doesn't, and what things i should add and omit.

Here is a link to my horse rig: http://noxlabs.com/rhettDocumentation.html
Created in Maya 2008, tested on 8.5
Horse body fully rigged with some facial controls
The rig is light weight, easy to use, comes with documentation, and a small embedded set-up GUI.
