    Little bit OT, but it is needed under BTB.
    I am looking for a low poly front-end loader and a truck crane.
    Tried on sketchup gallery and crunched a bit, but they stays over 9000 polys...
    Someone can help me?

    Thanks a lot,
    Andrea

    Hi, I suppose do you know 3dsimed, this program allows you to extract some objects from already made circuits, they are low poly models, so its a fast way to get objects, finally all of we have the same type of models, :( but....

    cheers

    Theres an Xpack with a truck crane already in. Its called Trackside_Objects.

    And by front end loader, do you mean Fork-Lift Truck?

    If so, i have a high poly one which i`m trying to reduce to a low poly. Dont know if i`ll ever manage it, as i seem to have lost my poly cruncher plug-in for 3d max :(

    Edit: Just remebered, theres an xpack called Dirt Track Equipment that has some building site type vehicles......try that.

    I've found the same problem with Sketchup models. What I've done several times is download a high poly model into sketchup and then draw a much lower poly version of using the high poly for reference.

    delu77. If you find a sketchup model that you like, I'll try to make a lower poly version of it for you. No promises you'll like it, but I'll try
