I'm working with MODO 10.2 but I didn't use anything special for the Traveller compared to other software. It's still ''low poly'' (32k triangles unoptimized, should be under 25k after I clean it) so no subd. The only really MODO specific thing is from the rendering (rounded edges shader), makes it look like a high poly by simulating round edges in the material. Very nifty function, not sure if other software offer something similar. They might by now.

Most likely they will either be an event or part of the non-playable factions. It's too early to say which
