Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Whoops, apparently the Solaris has 90k. Detail boxes still probably a good idea.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
You can go way over those counts. Probably not too wise to add insane numbers of polygons but it will work. We got two ships in Diaspora that are over those counts and they work just fine. The key is good lod-ing. Detail boxes can help if used properly, too. Current graphic cards can handle large amounts of polygons, what you really want to be careful about is the number and size of textures - if you run out of video memory your fps will drop through the floor.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Yeah, texture count is the biggest issue I'm aware of w/r/t to the engine. With the go_faster patch you also get significant advantages for use of submodels, but if this is for WCS, WCS does not have that patch which could be an issue.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Nope, it's not for WCS, I just make it more out of fun :) Texture count won't be a problem, since the greebles are all produced out of the same template and just reorganized different to make it look more random, and the WingCommander Ships don't use that much colour. However, I just recalculated and I will obviously get too high with the polycount, so far I estimate something between 90 and 100K  :sigh:

As said, if the ship wouldn't be so big, I wouldn't make so much detail, but ingame the greeble won't be so small, so it's necessary. But since I only need it in LOD 1, and if detailbox work, I might get it done. Unfortunately, my Truespace starts *****ing when I breach 100K, it goes hard on performance, not to mention lodding the ship :(

If it looks this good without textures, I can't wait to see the finished product.

I'm not calling you subtle. I'm calling you "subtle". There's a difference :)

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Well, 'vivre la difference,' as I would always say if I could speak French.

Of course if I could speak French, I'd have spelt that properly.

EditToAdd: And if I could speak English, I'd have spelled that one properly, too.

We all know you can go well beyond that limit. :)

Yeah but the cleaner it is, hopefully the nicer it behaves.  Looking great.

Haha...ha...silly thought time...

Empire got back!

Ok, back to my hangover nap.  Silly Irish girl thought she could outdrink me, but that probably wasn't a battle I should have fought.
