Fire_axe_cabinet W.I.P - Need Opinions

I wanted to include a fire hose in with the axe in the cabinet, there would be a glass pane on the front but its alot of tri's so wanted to see what you guys thought before continuing with it. Its currently at 1340 tris. Not much more to ass as the axe is a separate asset. Let me know asap. Cheers!


  1. That's looking great Arron. don't think the tri count is too much of a problem, it's not excessive. I've seen assets from some other groups and they have high tri counts where tubing and wiring is involved, even on smaller objects. not much that can be done about it really, can't see another way around it other than too model it

  2. Cheers dude, I'm also making the glass pane breakable, just gotta texture this and the axe now

  3. haha realised I said ass instead of add XD
