Felix that would not be needed the cabin's bar is fully stocked and for what its worth i only drink a single malt
by the name of "the Macallan" that i pick up in New York because they don't have the overproof classic matured in sherry casks in Quebec  , they do have the oak aged version but its not every thing i look for in a wee dramm....
anyway it provides a great reason to drive through New Hampshire once in a while
( off to the cabinet he goes )

Back to the Citation (hic), thanks for the Lil'looksee Fr.Bill i can see a bit of shading is in order as you noted Wink

Today's task was to add  taxi , logo and landing lights with the rest of them on tap for tomorrow .
The exterior texture work is about the last stage of this operation , i found a corner of the exterior. bmp where
i could fit in the stairs and finishing those will provide a perfect diversion from the gauges .

The above space represents what one gets when the Lite switch gets pushed , an instant  20,000 poly reduction
with most of the decorative bits going  " POOF" .
Dealt with the problems associated with model complexity and framerates in short order for those low end computers.
The other details like lights and staircase textures also complete i am sure itching to get some people in the picture
so the next part will have boobs  Roll Eyes

That's really good for only 1100 polys. A wise modelling indeed!

Very nice work on your lady Chuck!

I know how difficult they can be getting those to have low poly counts.  You really have to flip them around while reducing the poly structure complexities, as they can have bad shadows from certain angles.  My German pilot got some odd wrinkles in his pants 'after' the Optimization.  (Didnt notice 'during' the process).

A gent can break a real sweat pushing polly's but in the end its a mans work after all .... Roll Eyes
Now that she is fully dressed i can think of a few more animating ideas for the dear girl.
I managed to get the entire load on one 512 X 512 bitmap and the final count was a passable 3500 polly's , not bad for a figure of that complexity.

One down and the copilot to go i decided that a reading a book would be fitting to a middle aged VIP .
The animations have her turning the page once the book is lowered with her eyes scanning the text  and a brief
glance up at the pilot after turning her head towards the cabin .

6 Tick18's did the job and brought the .MDL to over 5 meg's
