Yes, I saw your models. Very nice. While looking at them it brought to mind a question I had about the models I was working on. I can reduce the poly count on the models by combining surfaces manually. Some of the surfaces lie on the same plane and unless there's a special reason not to they can be combined into one surface. I'm wondering if there is a way to automate that process. Not just with surfaces that share the same plane but perhaps with surfaces that join at an angle that is equal to or less than one that is user defined and if they could be combined with a smoothing algorithm which averages. Just a thought. I wonder if Andy is reading this thread.

Or if any of the plug-in scripters are, and what they think of the idea?
