    Well lappy, I cant complain about filesize for the landscapes anymore. check it out. The landscape took a couple of seconds to load (more than normal) but the range was breath taking.

    I realized one of two things: 1 good one bad..

    My mod hasnt been deleting and moving things as I have been, so if anyones mod folder is 110 or more mb, I will have to figure out something so you get a clean mod without having to dl it again.

    Secondly.. my single core integrated gfx card piece of crap laptop can play s3d just fine on a 1024×1024 landscape! without a rediculous loading time even! 😀

    just gussing – the water probably takes more to process than land does. if it’s mostly land in view, you’ll probably get a higher frame rate. id guess the amount video memory you have would come into play at some stage.

    interesting you say the load time doesnt increase.

    on my server,my laptop loads it quite fast, but the landscape detail slider is all the way down.

    On my desktop it takes a couple seconds more to load due to the detail it draws (slider all the way up).

    If I were to turn Water off, do you think that 1024×1024 landscapes would function better? As in not so intensive? I noticed on the server when i hosted there was a teeny bit of lag, not much, but im a perfectionist when it comes to theese things.

    it’d depend on the landscape, i think. how much water’s in frame etc. also, the flatness of the land/intricacy of the heighmap – prob makes a difference.

    you could try a 1024 map with a 256 playable area. that worked quite well for me last time i tested. blur the outer edges of the landscape to reduce the detail. or, you could try experimenting with the land error setting, see if it makes a diff. if it doesnt, you know the landscape isnt causing problems. keep in mind that hardware differs a lot in what it’s good at. eg, a 20% reduction in frame rate if you add more fog, say, could make negligible diff on the next machine you test on, and vice versa

    Pro needs an official name now. Not just the pro(totype) name I gave it.

    Can’t you just pinch one from another mod and just modify it? Probably need the milkshape source however, I’m such a noob when it comes to modding 😉

    Im abit of a detail nazi. I like to squeeze the most detail out of my models. The other models just dont cut it.

    So I spent all morning modeling this.. I will add cannons rockets and miniguns later.

    Right now the main rotor rotates, just have to make it spin faster.

    EDIT** Updated with final stealth and loadout.
