Hello everyone.
I was wondering, what will the maximum texture sizes on Weapons, Walls, Characters and entities be on FPS Creator X10???
And what kind of overlays will be avaiable??

I was wondering the samething for a while now... Also while we are on the subject, will the minimum be like 512x512 or something?

The minimum SHOULD be 512x512, while the max is probably something over the 1000's by 1000's.

Well, it was possible to use technically textures of any size you wanted to in the original FPSC if you did some minor alternations, so don't see any need for any solid limits. 1280x1280 is already quite huge and sharp even in close up, especially if used on a "normal" sized humanoid object, not to mention objects even smaller than that.

2048x2048 would be useful for HUGE objects, like landscapes and buildings.

Thanks!
Yeah i was thinking about 1024x1024 and 2048x2048. But since its DX10, it must support 4096x4096, like some old Graphics card did too without a great framedrop.

But also.. What will the max polygons be for objects and models? Since it may handle bigger texture sizes, it should also handle bigger models..

There's still no solid information about graphical limitations. If I recall right you could use objects with as many as 10 000+ polygons in the DX9 (winxp) version, but that would most likely kill the performance as well.

The good thing with FPSCX10 is that you can use shaders like the bump/normal mapping to add details instead of polygons. 3000-6000 polygons + a normalmap made out of model with tens of thousands, or even millions of polygons would look marvelous if done right, and would save precious memory at the same time. Check out some threads with "user" made models that will appear in FPSCx10, especially the "fat zombie" model.
