A couple weeks ago, we told you about Autodesk’s plans to retire Land Desktop and to release a trimmed down verion of Civil 3D. On Friday, they went live with a few pages on their website with more info. Link after the jump.

To piggyback on something James said, and to set the record straight for quite a few VERY disgruntled LDT users today…
If you have LDT, Civil Design, and Survey on subscription, you will ONLY receive LDT 2008 in the mail.Â Â Â Civil Design and Survey are no longer subscription items.Â Â The only way you can receive those two programs is to upgrade your LDT license to Civil 3D.Â Â Then, your package will come with 2 DVD’s – one for C3D, and one for LDT, Civil Design Companion, and Survey companion (yes, they’re all on the same DVD now.)
If this makes you unhappy, call your reseller.Â Â There are some incredible prices and incentives for upgrading your license to Civil 3D (I’m not quoting pricing here, but it’s pretty close to what you pay for subscription)Â Â
As James said, see the writing on the wall.Â Â Get on the bus while it’s still at the station, because it’s going to cost to get you on board later in the journey.
