here is the texrtured version, at present the map is 1024X1024 but its easily too detailed so i dont feel too bad about halfing that, to 512.

crit please

hey, dont quote me on this but off the top of my head i think u can have up to and around 4000 polys for a big weapon like a sniper in HL2....but im not sure..

no not quite, i was reading, for a single player mod a Character poly count can be up to 8500, on a multiplayer mod a character shud have 4500 - 5000 tops but its best to stay around the 3500 to 4000 with characters, weapons on a multiplayer mod shud be around 500 - 2000 tops

sould be ok its somewhere round the 1500 mark at mo.
