Modeling software?
Found some interesting 3d software while browsing the internet. Not sure which one I should invest my time in. I found TrueSpace 7.6, Gmax, Hexagon, and Milkshape. Also looked at blender but I don't like its messy ui.

Blender is under active development and is fairly feature complete, so it's probably the best choice.

Blender has come a long way, and tbh its more intuitive than ever. Already compared to other programs like 3dsmax, and cinema4d, and have found no problem in using blender over those.

GMax is a stripped down version of 3DSM and made by the same company as 3DSM.

Blender is quite good, but I don't like it myself. I rather use gmax, it's fairly enough for me now - a less complex version of 3DS Max. Also, if you are interested in a very simple way for a very simple modelling, it can be done with Valve Hammer Editor, then .vmf exported to .smd and optionally compiled to .mdl with Propper.

I feel the same way. I need a program that is simple to use yet powerful.

I actually started out with blender 4yrs ago before the ui change. Still confused with the program.

I was taught using 3ds Max and that's what I've grown to love.

I've tried multiple times to get along with Blender but I always find it's UI to be quite frustrating.
I love ZBrush, you should give it a try, It's very intuitive yet powerful. Maya is great, too.

Zbrush is digital sculpting, best used to make textures. Also got mudbox, 3d-coat, pixologic Sculptris (free), and blender for sculpting.
