hi Lar,Im around 26k on polys, I try to shoot for less that 1mb for the MDL, this includes the DVC. I rarely see framerate problems on my rig, so I usually dont skimp on the extras. If your going to upload, Id suggest finding someone with an older box and let them test it.for SS, below click here to choose file, make sure its less than 700 wide and less than 125kbs. On this forum I like to keep the pics small, 80-100kbs.Cant wait to see your pics, I just started adding gauges, I got hung up working around some errors, I was hoping to be further along than this.

Poly count has a direct effect on frame rates...but of course there's no specific formula for frames. Some people like to do detailed models with 50,000 polys, while others want to ensure good performance; I have a goal of 10,000 for my Saab (at 7,000 now...when I add all the details, I'm probably not going to make that goal).Matt
