It can be created and parsed and rendered (but not modified) by the
game engine. It used to be exported by a custom 3ds Max plugin but we
no longer use that (we export to Collada since ~4 years ago). It's not
designed to be a modifiable format, but it's not theoretically
impossible to modify - there's a Python script at
http://trac.wildfiregames.com/ticket/461 to convert .pmd back into
editable Collada format so it can be imported into e.g. Blender,
though that currently only works for static meshes and not

non-original and derived from texgyrepagella-*. The original
texgyrepagella-* are from
