Version 3 of the Bryce 3D Modeler:

Not content with the capabilities of its already impressive terrain generator, MetaCreations has added an assortment of tools and features to the latest version of Bryce. (Not content with the name either, the company is now calling it Bryce 3D, which is somewhat puzzling since the program has always produced 3-D scenes.) The new version gives you more control over the appearance of clouds, water, and material textures and, most notably, lets you animate the scenes you create. The additional controls, plus a greatly enhanced manual, make Bryce 3D even more pleasurable to use.

In case you're not familiar with Bryce (and don't have a copy of Macworld's August 1996 review of Bryce 2 handy), this Power Mac-only program lets you create fanciful or realistic landscapes in 3-D space. You can import DXF, 3DMF, and OBJ objects into Bryce landscapes; use preset terrains, water, skies, textures, and Boolean objects; or customize the preset elements in one of the program's many editing environments.

Excerpt: Macworld review of Bryce 3D (Wayback Machine)

Top DL: Above: A pre-release BETA test copy (Bryce 3D version 3.0d23)

2nd DL: The update to Bryce 3D version 3.1 in a StuffIt 5.5 ".sit" archive.

Note: The original Bryce 3D CD-ROM will be required for the initial launch of the update application.

The update cannot be applied to a demo, freeware, foreign, or beta (pre-release) version of Bryce 3D, nor can it be used to update an older commercial version of Bryce.

Seems we need to find the gold released version of Bryce 3D v3.0 for this page.
 

Preinstalled version of Bryce 3 (8.54 MB) Same as top DL above, but includes Bryce vers. 2 manual.
Mediafire.com download
 
Bryce 3 Update to 3.1 (5.14 MB) - Mac OS X zipped file - See 2nd DL above for classic friendly copy of this file.
Mediafire.com download

If you have a copy of the final released version 3.0 of Bryce 3D, please consider adding it to this page.

I was never able to check any out until recently. Do you know of any that are still up and can be found easily?

Wow! Smile Those places/servers were crammed with treasures! Especially a place called 'The Abandonware Library' IIRC. The start of my (mostly) Macintosh adventure games collection started with places like that.

And the holy Graal was maccomplete.sys Stated in NL and the absolutely biggest collection of Mac Games ever seen. No way to exchange your way in there. Wonder where all those disks went?

Yep. preterhuman.net

It's hard for me to be able to use that sort of connection, but every now and then I'm able to get something like that working and slog through all the crap they've got cluttering everything up.

I don't know much about this; I found it on the "Higher Intellect" server. They also seem to have an upload of Bryce 4 that I can't get to work. Like most of their files it seems...
