Tricount is 618. There will be lots of them on the screen at once.

No reason to use hard edges where they don't belong though.

Well, the choices there are all bad- redo the helmet and lose the face to grab back enough triangles to redo the feet, etc. Not worth messing with, at the scale they're at, and the boxiness won't be terrible when they're in-game, it's very heavily preshaded.

The legs need to be that way, I tried other variants and wasn't happy with them- legs and hips are the single biggest pain in the arse in terms of making people look really believable, and I settled on the final design after quite a bit of messing.

They aren't six-sided, for example, because I spent the faces on bevels around the knees... having messed with six-sided legs and stuff (the Stormtrooper models in SWS, the Fleet Troopers), I wasn't happy how their knees worked, decided to do something else. <shrugs> tbh, I think it's a gorgeous skin, and that the model's going to be fine, it looks good at all angles. I'm still detailing out the weapons, though, so you'll have to wait, if you want to see more angles.

But why are you using hard edges on round surfaces?

I'm not, you're just seeing the model before it's smoothed in UpSpring. Here:

This is what a player will see, at typical zoom levels: Image

Making more sense now? I build everything with the expectation that I'm going to re-smooth it in UpSpring. I don't even worry about it when I'm doing the skin, tbh.

Worldbuilder needs to be able to decal in some roads. Really badly. Would a single textured poly work (or a very thin box to allow for some terrain variations) or would you need to decipher ground decals?

PS the soldier looks good, are the shoulder lights teamcolor?

A poly wouldn't work as it would intersect with the terrain. You'd need decals...

Am I the only person finding it odd that on an 8Mbps connection I've only managed to load 100 pixels worth of image in 30 minutes?

Yeah, you are smoothing it wrong Argh. Would be better if you did them in your model app and import piecesas OBJs to make sure the normals are correct. It's like 10 minutes of more effort.
