I read somewhere that BoB will allow for airplanes made of 10000 polygones. How mutch better is this compared to FBs? And is there a sample of a 10000 poly aircraft somewhere?

In comparison, the FB planes are generally about 3000 for a single enigne fighter, 3500+ for a bomber.

I heard that the initial test planes for BoB, the Hurricane Mk. I, Bf-109E-1 - E7 series and Do-17Z, are about 7000 polygons. That is likely to increase as the game develops.

You could use the LOMAC planes as an example, the A-10 is probably in that ballpark, the FA-18, probably more. Expect smoother lines, and greater attention to the details (gear, flaps, cockpit, etc).

Thanks Fennec! Went strait in to LOMAC demo and fired it up in 1600x1200. Hrrrm!
Beautiful but slow, needs a new computer for sure. Well 2005 is far away and hopefully the hardware will be there.

PS! Isn't it getting very juvenile in here ?

Hi Master Mariner....

sorry for hijacking your thread... I'm not normally like this... I dunno what came over me.

As for your question. I think that 10,000 polys will be quite possible by 2005. My old dodgy comp can handle me make and animating models with 120,000 polys. its a little slow..... but it does it. So by 2005, I'm sure 10k polys will be the average... did you see that awesome B-17 model pic that someone posted once.... excelent detail, but heaps of polys.... probably what we'll be looking forward to when BoB is released.
