Polygon Count Limits

Below are the maximum ranges we accept for uploaded 3D meshes.  See Meshes and polygons to see why we choose these limits.

LOD = Level Of Detail as shown in TSR Workshop and other tools.  There are four levels ranging from 0 (highest) to 3 (lowest).   Note: we adhere to Electronic Arts' own polycount standards for Maxis Match (we've allowed slightly higher for more detailed Alpha content) and will not accept content breaking those guidelines.

Build/Buy Objects Per in-game tile * LOD0 2,000 n/a
    LOD1 ~50% of LOD0 n/a

* Object polycounts are set per in- game grid square (floor tile).  That means a 3-tile sofa can have an LOD0 limit of 3x 2000 (ie 6,000 polygons) etc. The height of the item is not considered.
