It's a pack! of structures!
Finally, an entire pack. It has nine models, the ones listed below. I didn't do a turret factory, sentry turret, or seige turret; they've been done before, and pretty well too. If you want them, I suggest Ollj's low poly pack, or Arson's low poly turret pack.
The combined total of all of these models is 1212 polys. The combined total of the default models is 3575 polys. That means these models are a scant 34% of the orginal polycount. You could build three bases for the price of one! And you should!

Armory: 156 polys
Arms Lab: 116
Command Console: 177
Infantry Portal: 75
Observatory: 164
Phase Gate: 104
Prototype Lab: 158
Resource Nozzle: 48
Resource Tower: 214

Download is available through my pack at FPSBanana

    The arms lab looks a little wierd, like some of the sides have been chopped right off.

    Other than that it's awesome.

    Alkiller, you should have voted when the arms lab WIP thread was active. You missed your chance, and it's too late to complain now tounge.gif

    Snappy you are AWESOME. You have redefined the term low poly does not mean low quality. You have set the standard of low poly models. You didn't destroy the quality and you have minimized the # of polies required. GOOD JOB.

    Well, changing just about anything makes consistency fail. However, not many servers enforce consistency because NS seems to have such an enthusiastic modding community behind it, and a low percentage of lamers. If you absolutely need file consistency for say, competetive play, I suggest searching the forums for how to keep dual NS installations.

    Should be made official. Maybe the "High quality" button in options could be put to effect here...
    Really nice work smile-fix.gif I can handle full detail NS, but I used to have to run really badly. This'll help people like my past self, and for that I thank you.

    Next on the list is to try and do sprite-like v_ models a la Dr Fuzzy's Doom pistol and shotgun. It's trickier than the low poly models. If it works, though, it could cut each of the v_ models from 1000-2000 polys down to about 50 or so, depending on the animations that can be kept.

    MUHAWHAWHAWHAWHAW!

    Now I shall pwn you ALL again!


    Lol, actually, I've been playing the past 3 or so months with all HIGH poly models... and as a result... at around 5-15 FPS... average of 10 XD


    Now, I might actually be able to SEE what I'm attacking, so my 20/21 score as a marine will become a 40/11 score once again!

    Thank you man, these are THE best low poly models I've seen EVER

    I'm just curious about one thing.

    These are low poly versions aimed at people having what kind of old PCs ?

    Anything less then Pentium-III ?
    Anything less then 500Mhz ?

    With today's prices, upgrading a PC doesn't costs that much.


    P.S.: I do not intend to start a thread war, so don't do it. I just want to know.

    Yeah, Browser[ICE]. I understand where you're coming from. My main computer is an Athlon 2400 with a soon-to-be-upgraded GeForce 4 Ti4200. I don't use my low poly models on that. I also have a computer that's dual PIII 850's with a GeForce3 Ti500. It runs just fine without my low poly models as well. I made my low poly models for my laptop - It's an Inspiron 1100 with a 2.0GHz Celeron, and an Intel Extreme Graphics card. The Intel Extreme isn't a 3d accelerator, so NS runs at about 30 FPS on empty classic maps, and can drop to unusable framrates in a firefight. I just don't have the option of upgrading the graphics card in my laptop, so the only thing to do is downgrade NS.
    This pack is made for 3 kinds of people:

    1) People who seriously don't have the money to upgrade their computer. (These people probably recieved their current computer as a gift.)
    2) People who use a computer that isn't theirs (Like their parent's, or their friend's)
    3) People who can't access their computer's innards (Like me, or other storebought desktop computers that are under warranty but don't have a 3d accelerator)

    As far as actual specs... it's tough to say. Just offhand, I'd guess that anyone with a PIII or Athlon paired with a GeForce2 (non-MX) or Radeon 7500 would be okay without these. With just barely these specs, they might want a low poly turret pack from seeing fps drops near turret farms.
