@ hawken - just had one question regarding Extras.
That aspect is not very clear imho.
Does it mean that ON TOP of scene tri/texture count we can ADD 20X256 worth of tris?
If so, is it mandatory to add extras to the scene?
And why could not we have just 1024+(20x256) of tris (plus same for textutre budget) or the scene and we could use it for whatever purpose we need?
I think its unlikely that Tron style demands bunch of props... Most of geo is a part of architecture, there r no dumpsters/crates etc.
If that should be extra props which only use that extra polycount i think there won't be much of use for them...
EDIT: ah, one and more question
"SCENE - (diorama / scenery) - 1024 TRIANGLES, 2 512 x 512 (diffuse, spec, trans, special) (may include models from the above category without affecting the budget)."
by saying that did u mean a vehicle can be added under condition that a total of a scene and a vehicle will be 1024 tris or u meant that adding a character/vehicle would not affect scene's 1024 tri limit?
