View Full Version : Glass and Frame rates

I am making an enclosed catwalk above my beer storage vats. This catwalk is much like the one in Kejim, the one that goes across the little gorge to the Imperial Probe Droid launch bay.

My question is, how much glass is going to be too much ?
Can I make a catwalk with alot of glass, like most of the top and bottom sides of the walls, with a small bar running down the middle side........ or, is it best to make " windows" randomly intersecting normal walls?

6,000 X 1,800 units are roughly the Length and width of this room, with a catwalk running from the top left to the bottom right.

I dont think that the amount of glass, in and of itself, is going to kill FPS too badly. It'll have more to do with what can be seen FROM that catwalk. The more you can see from up there, the more that has to be drawn, the lower FPS will go. All I can say is : experiment. Probobly not the reply you'd hoped for, but them's the breaks.

Oh, and BTW - RED GREEN ROCKS! "If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy."

Its a good reply, it helped me out so no worries. :)

and yes , Red Green does kick some ass.
I finally got my copy of his movie, Duct Tape Forever in yesterday.
I was hoping for 6 of the Judas Priest remasters to come, but wasn't expecting DTF for at least 10 days.

It was a pretty cool movie if you never saw it. I ordered mine from https://shop.chapters.indigo.ca
This is a canadian online book store, it took about 3 weeks to get here and ran me 34 bucks ( DVD ) ..

heres a link to the movies website.
