Yeah, for everything in ROTR, 3,000 polys is about the upper limit and reserved for things that appear on the map relatively few times. Most things trend around 1,000 polys, with very mass producible things like Battlemasters and Hoppers going lower (around 300 and 100, respectively).

When making the UV maps, it's best to put faces that will have no differences between them overlapping. For example, all of the drivewheels on the T-90 are probably not going to have any differences between them, so they can all use the same area of the texture. I would refrain from doing this for two halves of large symmetrical parts, as you will be forced to mirror the textures which will look odd for uneven things like battle damage or some types of camo.

For texturing, look for Extract Image or something like that (don't normally use Max, so not 100% sure) on the UV Map. Save the file, and use it as a base for making the diffuse texture (the UV Map will outline the faces, which you can use to add details into areas and make it look prettier). I generally have the UV Map on one layer, and then add layers on top for detail.

Keep up the good work!

A note before you go further with this: the .W3D importer/exporter does not work with Max 2015 (really, any version higher than 8). You'll need to work on things in Max 8, or import them into there using a different format (perhaps .obj or something, but I don't recommend this).

Here is a place to download Max 8: http://www.moddb.com/mods/tcw/downloads/3d...udio-max-8-demo

And here is the .W3D plug-in: http://www.moddb.com/mods/tcw/downloads/3d...-8-w3d-exporter

quite good tb, one thing iv noticed though.

The side protective skirts are too high up, they should be flush with the front skirt.
