I Know what you mean. I'm trying to create a BSG mod for the old (1995) Flight-Sim Freespace 2. Even with the Source Code Project bumping the poly limits, the numbers matter. Through with the HT&L setup we're using now, the number of textures is more important.

For us over at Hard Light Productions (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php), 2K-3K polys per fighter is the max (the Viper I've made is 1771) And while one chap working on a NuBSG project has his battlestar sitting at 10K+ polys, I'm not going that far...
