High Fidelity Alpha Tests – Domains and Places

The image shows the “supercar” mesh, which has 575,000 vertices and 200,000 faces, being tested in HiFi. There are several other meshes he uses, too, including one of the International Space Station that was provided by NASA.

    Care to take a stroll on the ISS? The solar panels look particularly beautiful tonight.
