I'm about to start working on a nexgen racing game at work.
We started testmodelling the cars, and they sure look good.
I hope I may start modelling next week or so, I'm eager to boot up Lightwave.
We haven't decided on the polycount just yet, but we belive it will be around 12-16k polys for the whole outside body. The wheels use quite alot of those polys.

Anyway, it's not tested and decided yet, so I can't say much more right now.

thanks for the reply, 15/16 k seems to be a very high polys budget,for what platform are u going?

this is the car i started ...i fixed a limit at about 2500/3000 polys fo rthe outside. actually it is very low... need the time :)

Thats my topic :D

15-16k polys is not that much today! A PC (1gh with Geforce 2) have no problem with that polycount.

Even Need for Speed (5) "Porsche" use arround 7k for ONE Car, and YES U can open the doors/trunks etc. That's something U find not often (hat U can open doors) Maybe in Carmagedon :p

One more, need for speed 4 had Models with arround 2k polys. But U also can go to 5k depend on your computer!

And Yes the most polys are used for the wheels :mad:

I would like to use that polys for other parts :rolleyes:

Letz see waht the future brings...maybe 60k for a Car....Yuppiii :D
