Brought a new one (150GB) a few weeks back.

I was talking about RAM.

To try and keep the frame rate moving in Frame per Minute not Frames per Hour i'm modelling either 3 or 4 versions of each building.

1) High Poly for up close shots. These will have very primitive interiors (cubes) so they don't look empty through the windows.

2) High poly Interiors for inside shots. You don't need to see detail on the outside if your inside and vice versa.

3) Low Poly exteriors for big aerial shots and fly throughs. These shots will need lots of extra landscape and you won't need to see detail anyway.

4) Medium Poly Exteriors. These will be used in fight scenes when there is lots of action going on as the veiwers eyes will be on the people and action and not on the buildings.

Anyway here is my start on the high poly Gate House at the entrance to the temple complex. I've researched and tried to base the models on 13/14th century (It's wasn't the first time they'd been burnt down) chinese architecture.

Trouble is you always end up wanting more than you have (i do anyway). First i had 512mb and wanted 1GB then i wanted 2GB now i want 4Gb.

With such a big project if you need help on smaller aspects of the scenery or smaller clutter objects im sure you could find a few volunteers to ease the workload.

I like the house, but subd or nurbs?

I'm back so i'm off to go do some more in a few minutes.

This one is SubD, the low poly and the medium poly ones are Polys.

Yes i can post an roof close up.

Although i'm ok at the moment some help with little things would be appreciated later on in the project.
