Why would they texture the inner wall of the smoke stack? ;) Couldn't they save a fraction of the memory by having it like the inner barell of a tank, just black on top.
I am not sure it would improve running it that much. The texture is loaded anyway already for the outside so I really wouldnt know how much (even if you do this for many objects in VD) this would increase performance.
Dont forget the whiners.........I bet if they would have done that we would have seen many topics of whining whiners about the inside of stuff no one ever looks in when trying to kill others :)
You know what I mean :wink
