xNormal - generate normal/ ambient occlusion/ displacement maps among other things; FREE for commercial or non-commercial use. ( http://xnormal.net/ ).

Make Human - Great tool for making humans( http://www.makehuman.org/ ).

RE: Great resources

I love all the new stuff =] Not going to download them all, but MakeHuman looks most interesting to me. Is there a way you could change the title to something different like "Creative Programs" or something like that? I feel the title is a bit misleading.

How about "Resorces to creating a good custom story"?

Idk I'm terrible with naming
