Hi all,

I did a little bit of work last night on the lowest detail LOD of the Lola T70 MkIII, to see if I could improve the fps on my ancient machine a little bit. I have optimized the wheels and one side and already saved 17.5 % off the file size so I hope that when I'm done there can be a bit more Lola's in sight before my PC goes haywire.

However when optimizing the side (was 5 or 6 poly's, now 1), I was left with some clipping with both the tire on the other side and the bonnet and windscreen area. I'm not too bothered with the bonnet and windscreen area since I'll remove the part of the side covering it anyway, but I can't find a way to fix the clipping with the wheel. Can anyone help me to show how to get GPL to draw the side in front of the wheel?

Attached are a picture of the problem and my revised LOD.

Tommie.

what have you done to that lola????? that screenshot made me cry. sort of.
no idea on the clipping tho

if you feel plenty bored you may want to do for the other cars what you did for the fez... beautifying them via the normals stuff.

It's just the lowest detail LOD model. You wouldn't see it as up close normally as in the pic but I've turned the detail slider way down to figure out what I'm doing.

The Lola has serious normal issues indeed, but there are a couple of things higher on the priority list. Still waiting for that 48 hour day to be invented...
