Is it worth it?
« on: April 17, 2009, 09:13:20 PM »
I have always wanted to have a wrought iron bed, so I set out to make one. As I am rubbish at curves ( and wings3d is not exactly easy on those either) I searched the net for a free model of a fence I could use. Found one, took it apart, tortured it a bit, and ended up with a bed frame.

My question is... at over 10000 polys, including bedding, is it worth continuing with the project? Considering that I want to add bedside table, mirror etc to the set too...

I know nothing of polys since  I don't create or anything... but that's a gorgeous bed... and I'm not partial to wrought iron beds.  I'd snag it.

The bed is gorgeous, Issy!  :love And 10000 polys is just over 1660 per tile, which isn't crazy. I'd download it in a heartbeat!  :yes

Thank you guys I will! It might be a long time in the making, cause I am not totally happy with it right now, but it will come!

I love that bed, 10000 is about the highest I would go but that is totally worth it!

Have you though of removing the poly's on the bottom of the posts?

Thank you ! Working on it right now...

Shane, anything that is not curved, I did, and believe me I kept it as simple as I possibly could to counteract the curves...but we are talking about such a minimal saving on poly count that its hardly worth mentionning!

Issy it's gorgeous and less than 2000 polys/tile which is ok from a poly count point of view  :))

Ok, I know it's been like 2 months since Issy posted this, but I absolutely looooove this bed, and was just wondering if Issy has any plans to finish it?

Awww Laurie...  :hug: I know I am so slow at doing things, and RL has been eating me up lately... I have the bed in my WIP folder still, with a second simpler one ( less polys...) I have also added a bench and a bedside table... If I get the time I will take pics in game.

I ought to make myself a to do list... and finish some of my on going projects, and request...  :blush I am so bad...

YAY! :realbighug:

Haha, I know what you mean! I've been working on a Door with my friend leesester, and I was supposed to do the Frame and Repo link it, I've done the frame and half linked it over the past month and a half. I have the folder ''DJLee Door [IP]'' [IP] = In Progress, sitting on my desktop since then. :tt2

Really looking forward to this! :drunk
