same rules as in Development-Screens-(-Each-post-contains-a-picture-OR-contributing-post)
but the additional rules are:
this thread was created to show that we are not just a bunch of kids that play around with sketchup, please contribute
- just present your own work, OR: clearly state what you got from where
- NO SKETCHUP, not even converterd
- not even one screenshot of stuff in sketchup.
- no mods: just original content only (in other words, no badly made modifications of other peoples work, just content that you created all by yourself). this includes putting new rims or paintjobs on someone else's car. even if you modeled the wheel yourself from scratch, it's still modding someone else's car, so it goes in regular development screens.
- un-professional looking stuff will get moved to the normal development thread: Development-Screens-(-Each-post-contains-a-picture-OR-contributing-post)

the difference is actually very simple: keep the poly count down
for example the game type of car:
and the same used for movies:
