I couldn't find this anywhere so if it's tucked away somewhere I'd appreciate a link to it.

What's the maximum recommended polygon count for a ship? Myself and a friend are working on a ship and need to know how many polygons we have to work with before we start pushing system overload.

This might be a newb question but I am one, what are polygons? Are they those little dots that you can move to change the model?
