Performance difference

Sorry, I should have mentioned that both models were uploaded identically, using the SU uploader with the “preserve component hierarchy” unchecked. Also, the only changes I made to the two versions was to decimate the heavier one. All materials, etc. are essentially unchanged…

Ok thanks.

We think it might be related to a change in our processing between your two uploads. We’re looking into it!
