    looks nice, gj.

    but why should I use the low quality version, when the high quality is only 0.50 kb bigger?

    lol, dude, im pretty sure you dont need a low quality version of this model, 0.55 KILOBYTES will not make or break a game by any stretch of the imagination....

    HQ vs LQ
    4.57-4.02 kb = ?

    Perhaps package the two files together, as 4kb never killed anyone.
    I like the idea, keep up the good work.

    Can we expect metal variations next?


    @mare, its presumably square to keep polys very low, and the crossguard very well could be square.
    Noone is going to care about that if they have 100 or so of these things as the author suggests this LQ version was intended for.
    If you want the rounded version so much, go get the HQ version here, which is only .50 extra kb and ROUND.

    its not always about filesize. from here i´d gues the lowpoly has maby 44 polys. the highrezz has mhm...about 250 i guess. so thats a performance diffrence of 400%.

    and who will see the poly-diffrence from 20 meters above?
