I used to spend a lot of time simplifying 3D models, especially some furniture such as sofas and beds. They usually have very scary file sizes, and make my .SKP file reaches up to 1GB.
But today I noticed that inside the “Network” tab of the Chrome Developer Tools (F12), there are 2 files “face.buf” and “face16.buf”. They’re just 5MB each!
Do these 2 files contain all the meshes data? Does it mean I don’t have to spend time simplifying a toilet or a water tap?
In another scene, there is no “face.buf”, just “face16.buf”. Why?
edit-By the way, what does “Max Lightmaps” on the Bake tab means? What does it use for?
