Low Poly Angled Roofs?

Low Poly Angled Roofs?

Postby d0ugal » Thu Jul 12, 2012 6:10 am

Hi :) Great Toolset... I have already used it for outlying suburbs in one city, and am starting work on another now.
One problem: I'd like to get angled roofs without going high poly. I generated 53 blocks of the city recently, the low poly (flat roofed) variant took 120secs to build and I got 130,000 polys out the other side... nice. The angled roof variant was high poly, took 28 minutes to generate and left me with an hard-to-use 1,000,000 polygon suburb (hard-to-use because I'll need to generate another 6 to 7 50 block sections to complete the job).
I don't need high detail as the CBD is the point-of-interest of the project, and I'm just doing the outlying suburbs... also, I don't know much about MaxScript so i'm unaware if this is an easy custom script or not. Would it be possible to have angled roofs as an option in Low Poly mode?

Sorry d0ugal, i didn't see your post until now..

I guess your project is all finished by now, but if you need help just let me know.
I'll try to keep a better eye on the forum.
