Which causes more lag? Decals or meshparts?


On the left I’m using a decal (206 bytes, heavily compressed I know, still looks decent) and on the right I’m using two meshparts. (The white indicator lines)

I feel like it’s a dumb question but I don’t know the answer, should I be using the decal or using the meshparts? Meshparts have CanCollide off and their collision set to Box.

Question, what exactly is everything made of. So for the left cone, is it a mesh for the base, a cylinder, and a decal, and for the right one is the base a mesh, and then two cylinder meshes to make the stripes and such?

Yes you’re correct, everything is made of meshparts, they all have the same Mesh ID.

(Besides the decals on the left, 4 decals on each side so the lines go all the way around)

Since you are already using mesh parts I would suggest just having the entire model being a single mesh part, and either using vertex painting or UV mapping with a very small texture being used for the mesh part.


Idk how to UV map at all, for a short term solution, are decals or meshparts better?

Mesh parts would be better without UV mapping.

Mesh parts. You can’t Union CGS Items. Decals are just the Texture of a Part or Mesh
