I think if it was possible we will have seen some video's containing them. I can see a lot of faces in your model and i think there is a limit.

65k is about the limit something like 65,360 or something I forget the exact number so if you can build an entire town with 65k faces and scale it down enough to import and use no collision then theoretically it can be done. I have toyed with the idea of making rooms in as a single object to import but never tried to see what I can come up with.

I have never known sketchup to be able to make low poly models everything I have seen made has been excessively high in polygons with a few rare exceptions but I suppose you can make one if you have the means and will to do so :0

I can make a building 500-1k polygons or if i want to get fancy 4k so not sure how much of a town you could create I think you would need to limit everything to 200-500 max to make anything townlike

you would have to use the "almost no collision" trick of building a tiny collision cube into it because you would have a very hard time importing something that size with full collision.

to big make the entire thing smaller if it was too many faces it would say it was over the 65k face limit so size the buiding down (shrink it) and you need to be up in the air near the center of the dome it can be tricky so many of us have adopted the habit of making low collision objects

err there is a script you can use to remove all collision from your object
and this thread has the code you can add to your asf files to make them import easily. There is another thread somewhere as well with the importer with that code built in I think but I can't find it now. When I first started I was unsure how collision worked in muvizu and I used the code in this thread until I figured it out when I ran into import issues.

and there is a set created to show you where the "sweet spot" for importing is.

The physical size limit I think is 30 meters but I am not positive about that one

hehe ziggy typed faster

you have to delete the image of the lady, or she will appear with your model.

urbanlamb, the lady is just a scale thing so you have an idea how big your model will be
