I have a question about objects. I read that Terragen 2 uses triangles for it's polygons. Is this true? It would be helpful to create objects using triangles instead having the converter do it. Better accuracy.

2 million? Pah! I'm not impressed. ;)

Ah, I have an idea: Arbaro. ;D

My Walker is up to 2042136 polys so far, but it will also depend on how many 1024x 2048x.... etc. textures maps your going to load with that too!
A two million poly model could fail over a 4 million poly model if the textures get out of hand. So I guess you need a new formula poly + Tex= total load on tg2

True enough. It's all in the various combinations of details, settings, etc. anyway. I'm more interested in finding the specific limits in different areas, e.g. I might test (again) the max image size with some of that Blue Marble data, but do that separately from pure geometry.

Btw, now I'm playing with animating the 4.7 trillion tris, hehe. Looks like about 20 minutes per frame at 720x480... on my new Core i7. ;D

You mean after you bring Mac performance up to parity with Windows? ;)

The sampler and I will get to know each other well :-). I bet I already know why it's slower though, but we'll see, we'll see...

Maybe Jo will have TG2-64 by then poke, hint, plug,...

A lot of retailers are giving upgrade to Win7 deals if you buy a Vista machine now...

Well, I haven't loaded a single Vista machine yet, no reason to start now ;)
