Hi! I'm making a map something like Death From Above (You are in AC-130 plane and you provide air support for your allies), and I have a question about optimization.

1. Since I've got a MAX_MAP_DRAW_VERTS error I'm quite frightened about my project because I have almost 50% done in my project. I have a lots of prefabs of buildings etc., and here's my question. What can I do to not reach the limit of MAX_MAP_DRAW_VERTS?

(I deleted some parts that are less important about view detail, but what if I'll reach the limit even with deleted those parts?)

For starters you shouldn't really be adding much if any detail to your buildings, and you should be using as few building prefabs as many times as you can get away with. Your terrain should also not have any detail for the most part, the mission uses a top down image like a Google maps view to give the illusion that there is detail.

You can play AC130 in developer mode with cheats, and set Dvar "ac130_enabled" to 0 so you can run around on the ground.

Here are some pics of the amount of detail in the buildings in the map:









Here is what the terrain in AC130 mission looks like:

Thanks for reply ;D

Ehh, So I have to create a new map and start it all over again. ;_;
Maybe I'll make a MP map from this old one.
