My Hardware on my Laptop don't support OpenGL 2.1+ :(
On my PC, it is much time to load, 5 min. for one sk to load and the laggs, no way!

You're not alone with those problems, even I won't be able to play the mod because my PC is crappy too. But it's a necessary thing.

Guys, you need to upgrade your PCs.
Olrox, your video card is 7 years old and all other hardware too, I think. It's a good time to buy a new PC. ;)

This is correct.

Omg, that's way too much! Especially for a wall model! O_o
And there's the glitch of the positioning of the "fins": they are only present in one side.

But, if they worked alright, and weren't too high-poly for warzone, they'd be fine I think

Yeah, I know they're supposed to be on only one side. "Glitch" is, how will the engine tell the walls to be placed rotated to the right side?
It happened even on this screenshot:

yes, it's the main problem.

Yeah, I was there - sorry I didn't say that back there. But I really think that walls should have barely the same poly count as bodies, as they're going to be repeated a lot.

Hmm, but I can't imagine a way to solve the "sides" problem unless the devs make it possible to rotate structures, and write a code that makes walls be always alligned. Or if the model is made symmetrical.

I think even if we made it possible to rotate buildings manually, you wouldn't want to do that manually for changing between inside and outside versions of walls. If there is some kind of heuristic we can run to determine which side is 'in' and which is 'out', we can add that, but I am not sure there is any that will always work.
