High FPS Models?

12-17-2006, 08:45 AM

When I was an active CS-players, my current computer proved to be unable to handle the game.
Luckily, I found a solution - high fps-models! These models are simply how the models in the game "should have looked" without the unnecessary graphical makeup. I experienced a significant fps-boost with these models when I played, and the most important part is that they are legal (or at least they used to be) in leagues, tournaments etc.

A picture of the models can be found here > http://img428.imageshack.us/my.php?image=modelsle6.jpg

In dods, I'm experiencing the same problem - as soon as a couple of evil Germans gather on my screen, my computer fails in delivering a satisfactory amount of frames when I need them the most.

My question is therefore:

What is the community's opinion about trying to establish some sort of high fps-models that would be legal in as many leagues as possible? (Of course only if high fps-models prove to be a really good thing for the fps! I'm not at all convinced about the models being the fps-eater in this game since there are a lot of additional factors in dods to have in mind when discussing fps.)

Anyway, please discuss and don't flame me to much!

(The above is written by Henrik "Lunatic" Gullstrand @ www.zpgaming.net - I agreed on posting it here, as he isn't allowed to post here with his new user.)

We talked about creating a thread here, so that, hopefully, some model-maker could create some HIGH-FPS models for DoD:Source.

They should give no visual advantages, except FPS should decrease less in
heavy combat.

What do you think - Would HIGH-FPS models bring more stable FPS to those of us with mediocre systems?

Player models cannot be replaced, only reskinned.

I hope this stays this way! (praying).

I know that you really like to see this in dod but I think that it might be abused, and ofcourse it has its good sides cause you can have some better looking models, but also cheaters could make much use of it.

And I rather make sure there are NO cheaters then let other players who don't have a pc that can handle it make it run better.

Just buy better hardware, no offence though!
