I found the email and confirmed that the opt-out will be available either in the email or as you're downloading. It isn't clear as to the exact step.

 

The emails should be out on the 28th according to the email

My understanding is that the version of Map that civil 3d is built on isn't quite the full standalone version.

what are the differences between the software in the infrastructure design site premium compared to the standalone versions e.g raster design, 3ds, revit structure and how much practical difference do any differences make?

To answer the original question a bit more directly, Map 3D has the Industry Models (as mentioned by someone else). The Industry Models where previously known as Topobase.

Users should inquire about any costs to downgrade from a suite after accepting the offer. Our inquiry reveals it is VERY expensive.

 

Not to say it is a bad move but you should be informed when making the choice.

Any change to Subscription is expensive. Multiply that by the number of seats of each piece of software in the suite and it may become very VERY expensive.

 

Check with you're reseller as to the final date you are able to opt-out. I'm hearing that you may be able to opt-out even if you downloaded the suite, for a limited time that is. Plus a lot will depend on your subscription renewal date.

That's pretty much along the lines of what I was told. We're in almost the perfect position. Our Subscription expiration date was 2 days ago. We'd already renewed our Civil 3D and RD. Now, because we will be able to drop the renewal on RD next year, we will actually save a (very) little on our next subscription contract.

 

Please. Everyone should check directly with their reseller to go over what this will and wont cost you. Nothing we're posting here is official.

So if a current MAP 3D user decides to free upgrade to Design Suite Standard, he will still get the "Full" version of Map but should he pay to upgrade to Premium or Ultimate he will only get the "LT" version?? Seems a bit odd if this were the case...!?!?!?

The way I read it is that all levels get full Map 3D. Premium and Ultimate users will get both the Full Map 3D and the "LT" version that runs inside Civil 3D. You'll have to start Map separately to get the full functions.
