I use 1500-2000 poly player models in CS, and my weapon models are upwards of the same. I have one weapon model thats 3400 polygons. People try to keep the poly counts low because of people with suck-ass PC's
UH GUYS THINK U COULD LOWER THE POLY COUNT JUST A LITTLE?????
I have 633mhz celeron with 124 mb of ram and a built on mother board P.O.S. video card(it has only 1mb of memeory). I noticed i noramally can get 15 fps if i am lucky but with the third person view i hang around and below 10. If I put it into first person It goes to like 15 but thats no good when I shoot a beam attack as I can now not see.
