Those look very nice hoi - the difficulty is knowing when to use what trick in what situation.

heh, lets start small:)
but i want the doors (the faces all the way below the windows) to slide in the model, i think that i can cut them in two and let them slide (dunno how yet :P ) but i want to prevent clipping, any tips?

I made a jeep. Obviously not for anything I'm working on right now. It's higher poly than I normally do, so I'm looking to get better.

It's apparently a WIP. Not sure if I'll redo the suspension/wheels or not. The body seems to need more detail. The gun is missing the ammo belt, which comes from the extruded area on the jeep. May or may not move the lights on to the wheel covers. Still haven't done the bumper bar.

4216 polys so far. I believe I'll end up with 5500-5750.

Nice jeep!

940 tri's
well ,its (nearly) done(i even set edge hardness!!!). as said before, commander building, it will fire missiles from the head and it will nano between those spiky things on the top, time to watch some tv or do something else now, texturing starts tomorrow morning:)
and some questions, when im going to uvmap it, i made the faces you dont see (the ground) a hole material, but they do come in the uv, if i use ignore faces will there be any problems/things i shoudnt do?

nice jeep, but is that for spring? i hope its not a spamable unit :shock:

speaking of which playing a lot for mech commander 2 source ive been thinking that a lot of my models are too high poly for their use in the game. the mc2 engine is similar to spring, battles usually range from small to medium skirmishes. looking at the texture and models, about 2 times as many polis as ota, and each texture is about 256 at the most. and the game looks good. so am maybe thinking this is about the same scale i should be using for spring mods since the visual performance should be similar, battles slightly larger, and average computer has increased since the days mc2 was released. but thats another whole topic....

3do's are rendered two times (something like that) becaus of face loss, so an s3o with 500 tris is better than an 3do with 300 tris

yes but whats the point of some of those pretty details when you have 100 of them running amok and your zoomed out to a larger tactical scale

well, that can be argued about any model. What is your zoom level?

I don't think it'd be impossible to design things that look great up close (due to fine detail) and zoomed out (due to large features of colour and shape).

That jeep model is hand down a great looking model.

Yet totally unpractical when it comes to gameplay performance where a LOD system is not in place(yet) with Spring.

You could trim a whole lot of triangles out of that and still end up with a great game usable model for Spring if that was the goal.

I didn't make it with Spring in mind, but I may just do that :P

Not to our benefit. Everything looks like it's had Gaussian Blur of three to five pixels applied at game distance.

That's not the LOD system, it's the mipmapping changes. Bring that up in Dev., with some screens.
