Effect of using Sinespace OAR Material Cleanup Tool:
- Before cleanup: Upload=1323.81MB, Windows Build=312MB, WebGL Build=467MB
- After cleanup: Upload=252.22MB, Windows Build=64MB, WebGL Build=121MB
- Note: The small changes in number of Materials and Meshes are due to other tidy up actions… the OAR Material Cleanup tool acts to reduce the number of Textures significantly… from 2255 using 682.60MB to 447 using 152.40MB.
