in max, the easiest way to check the triangle count is to add an edit mesh modifier to the list after editing.

easiest way is to press 7

Mentos... the reactor in his backpack doesnt give off nuclear waste like those inefficient 21st century ones they actually generate an infinite supply of Mentos, the refreshing mint that everyone enjoys.

Has anyone worked on skinning and ingaming anonnymous2009's shottie and grenade launcher yet?
il give it a shot.. i have the reach textures its just alot of unwrapping work :/
yea array is pretty helpful.. just select an object, goto Tools > Array... set how far apart you want the new instances to be and angle increments and stuff.. and then i dunno how he did it, but with my tank i made a path around the wheels and gave all the instances a path constraint. saved me having to place them one after another :/
and im pretty sure its 16 million polies.. partly because this isnt a number "16,676,9160" the commas should be like this "166,769,160" but mostly because thats the most useless model ive ever seen if it has 166 million. L2optimize. i make alot of models that are well into the millions of polies so im not saying its a bad thing, but really you're not getting any more detail or smoothness when you add your 12th turbo-smooth iteration

are there 16 million or 166 million polies?? are those tracks rigged? did you just array one track segment to make the rest?.. thats what i did with mine
by bloom do you mean scenery LOD? things only rendering when you're close to them?
and i agree armour abilities are rediculous at times. personally i never use anything other than spring :P
i should have been more specific though ( i agree the AI is poorly programmed at times), i meant the rendering engine is very clean
i wasn't really referring to the gameplay, more the engine itself. Its just so much cleaner than any other game i've seen. And in terms of gameplay, it is simplistic relative to something like Call of Duty.
any halo game that is not made by bungie is not a halo game. personally i hope that this combat evolved remake does not get ported to PC, i hope it stays on xbox and they actually do it justice. If they ever release another custom edition, i hope its using the reach engine. Chances are if this remake is made with anything other than a 343/Bungie engine the gameplay will be totally screwed up and it will no longer have the simplistic, smooth, non-glitchy perfection that we're used to.
blender is terrible for compatability.. its also proven to lead to pancreatic cancer..
im really curious where you're getting these textures from..
looks good so far.. the pole thing should be longer and thinner, and the head piece should also be taller and not so wide i think..
awesome thanks :) and dont worry about optimizing, this is primarily for a render so it can be however many polies you need/want.. i might put it in game later...
i need the honour guard's staff.. if someone could whip one up for me that would be awesome
calm yourself.. im gonna go dl ascension and if i can get it working i will rip them for you
wow did shrek 3 really come out 4 years ago :O i was 13....
the 1's added alot of emPHAsis!!2!11
i dont know why people make such a big deal about models looking like other models.. you can only be so creative. most ideas are heavily inspired by existing ones anyways, and sometimes the modeler doesnt even realize it...

i often use turbo smooth with 1 iteration for models
bah! i laugh at you :L
i always use at least 5 iterations for all my modelshttp://i.imgur.com/sbgLi.jpg
i like how you cut out part of my post...

i often use turbo smooth with 1 iteration for models for my engine...
i was referring to the 3D engine that i am making for a game in C#.
in my renders and animations i use as many iterations as necessary although that has never been more than 3. so congradulations! you spent money on a computer that's able to handle that many polies, but you still dont know how to use it properly.. that plasma rifle looks like garbage because you can't just apply turbo smooth, turn up the iterations and hope for the best.. i would be happy to give you a lesson on how to use it effectively if you like..
P.S. notice the turbo smooth on this has 3 iterations and yet i still have crisp edges where necessary http://i472.photobucket.com/albums/rr84/gtheflea/Audi%20R8%20GT%202011/back2.jpg
