    Some scripts I find useful.
    Snap! Use this to snap verts to the nearest vert on an editable poly or mesh object. Good for fixing gaps between road and grass quickly.

    Dummy replaced by random object. Use this for filling grandstands with people quickly. I found this on a website a while ago, and I don't remember what it was. The way I use it is to create a spline where I want people, align it to the surface if it's on a grassy area, use the spacing tool and put dummys along the spline. Then I select the people, and run the script.
    Here it is, you'll need to open the maxscript editor and save it yourself.
    Code:
    thecars = selection as array
    
    for o in $Dummy* do
    (
        r = random 1 thecars.count
    
        thecar = instance thecars[r]
        thecar.transform = o.transform
    
    )
