Hi all,
At the moment im trying to insert a own created character into Call of duty 4, but i know there are limits with the verts etc.
Im adding hair to the character , but im doing it with the Fur option in Maya but in Call of duty 4 i see the most hair is textured.
Why is that? And do i have to do this as well when im adding hair to prevent any limits to be hit?

Textures are used in games instead of fur/hair because of the amount of extra polys fur/hair adds, giving more stuff for the engine to render resulting in lower FPS.

There isnt really a limit. All you have to do is break the model up into diffrent poly "groups" in maya. The CoD engine then renders each 1 seperatly rather then in 1 whole group. Imagine 1 model made up of 5 models, thats essentially what it is.

As for the fur tool, you shouldnt really have to use that, thats designed for single Renders, rather then in-game, real-time renders.

You could add a few flat plains with fur textures on them, that's how games currently do fur, hair and trees.

Thats indeed a good idea ( same way like they make trees at call of duty , just a few "decals" as i like to call them ) , hmm not bad at all.[ohwell]

Yeah, like I said, model polys shouldnt matter unless it is actually insanely high, as you can do poly grouping work-around.

100 models with 40,000 polys each pretty much kills the game with a GTX260, so unless he only wants those with powerful machines to play his mod he'll have to watch the poly count.

Well its more as a test , so i'm not really gonna watch the FPS performance at this stage.

But thanks for the info, that would come in handy if i get my characters to work for maybe later stages in a mod.
