I had almost giving hope on that anyone would care/dare to answer my questions !
Thank you for explaining - reading through your post I drew the following conclusions:
1. object size doesn't matter as
3d is all relative
2. texture size minimum 1024x1024
btw, I have read though part of EULA from TurboSquid and as far as I understand it a customer is allowed to modify models as long as the modified version of the model is not re-distributed as an new model - this would allow me to get a model customized if it did quite fit my needs as it were.
Which is what your pseudocode does, kind of, only it wouldn't be quite so ...voluminous. Just write an algorithm that looks at the distance you need to cover, determine how many repeating elements it will take to fill that gap, and place them.
Disclaimer: I don't know WTF I'm talking about !
Thank you for your reply.
As I read and understand your algorithm it would continue to add middle segments until it had nearly closed the gap and just slap on an "end" segment - if this is true then some of the bridges would look rather strange and really long - some of them might even end up defying every book that been written about load-bearing capacity in bridge spans due to their huge distance between their pylons !
