I suspect that the total number of faces is being shown incorrectly in openBVE. At least when I compare it to Route Viewer - the figures in route viewer make more sense to me. Please see the comparison of figures in the same situation below. I would understand if openBVE only shows the faces loaded / drawn at a particular moment, but even in that situation the value is very low for what I am testing.

Interesting Smile
Two things at play here:

  1. Route Viewer is using a different (much lower) object optimization threshold. I presume this was intended to speed up loading, whereas the much higher number in openBVE is to get the best possible FPS.
  2. Route Viewer handles transparencies a little differently, which may cause a higher count here in some cases.

I can expose the object optimization thresholds in the options dialog Route Viewer if you want, but both sets of numbers are 'right' ; it's just that the main program has done a bunch more optimization. (Remember that in renderer terms, a face is *not* a Face command in your object, but rather a complete MeshBuilder , along with any compatible MeshBuilders the optimization process can combine into one)
