Full Version: My first crazy car, I present you the "Tri-Car"
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I will make my first "crazy" model, I will model 3-in-one, the front of GT 500, the back of 65' Mustang and some body parts of the Camaro SS, currently I am working on my concepts and sketches. But some inspiration could be useful too, give me some suggestions.

Nice model, it looks like it's becoming somewhat complex...don't get too crazy with the details or it will be slower than the other cars in the game. Try to keep it under 4000 triangles if you can (don't forget, if you work in quads, the number of faces will double when you convert to triangles!)...A good number is about 3500 or so, including glass, interior, etc. If you have to go over that's OK, but don't go too far over. Smile
Yeah the model looks pretty good, I only spot 2 *mistakes*
1 in the middle bottom of the bumper and 1 a little to the left from that.
How many polies are you at now?
Anyway keep up the good work.

Usually car racing games have 20k tri's, even GTA(which can have more than 50cars in the screen at the same time have 10k each), but first I will make it with some details and stuff to see if it lags, if it does I will reduce it.

Sure, you might as well try something in the 10-20k range and see how it performs. It should be fine, although it might give a slightly lower framerate for those with older computers.
The older computers/video cards are what I'm worried about with the poly count...but I guess if your card is too slow for the car then use other cars Smile Ideally, if we had lots more car models with more details then we could have high-detail models and low-detail models.

*Trash is random stuff, under the car and stuff like that, paint it black or something.
*The arrows is where it connects
*This part in the renders is the black part, so go see the renders for reference.

The next release will have some more body part, the green/blue one in renders.
