Create 4 different types of polygon spheres. These are an alternative to Maya's default polySphere.
-triSphere - Made up of evenly distributed triangles across the mesh. Great for low poly spheres. A.k.a Geodesic Sphere.
-quadSphere - Made up of evenly distributed quads across the mesh. Based on a cube.
-pentaSphere - Made up of quads that form pentagon shape patches in their edge flow. Based on an icosahedron platonic
-hexaSphere - Made up of quads that form penatgon and hexagon shape patches. Based on a soccer ball type mesh

1) Place the "geoSpheres.mel" file into the user/documents/maya/scripts folder.
2) Place the geoSpheres.png icon file into the user/documents/maya/version(example 2012)/prefs/icons folder.
3) Use the source command "source geoSpheres.mel;" in the command line or make a shelf button to run the script.
-Adding a Radius number field. Currently all spheres are created at default value of 1. 1 world unit based on whatever measurement you are working in, 1 cm, 1 foot, 1 meter, etc..
-The triangle count for each division level.
-New geoSphere types!! ?¿?!!
