Cruiser "Puglia"

A model of a simplified model. This is the Italian protected cruiser Puglia, launched in 1898.
One qquestion, though. The model has 36,000+ vertices. Quite a lot for such a thing, no? I make frequent use of the edge split modifier. Is there a more economical method?


If you have enabled, turn down Subdivision Surface.
Yeah, not the best tip, sorry… :smiley:

Instead of using edge split you can use Auto smooth which has the same effect without splitting the vertices. But honestly 36,000 isn’t that much (or maybe I’m doing things completely wrong :P)

Cool replica.
36.000+ verticies (or >50.000) isn’t allot for such a model.
PS you should definitely render such piece of art.
