Smoothing groups problem?
show user profile  Tank1092
Hello all! This is my first post here on this site, so yeah I'm a newbie!
Anyway I am trying to model a revolver and keep it low poly because I am eventually going to try to get it into a game :)
But I came across a little shading problem and since I dont know what this type of problem is called I couldn't really look for a way to fix it on the net (I tried but no luck obviously!).

What's with those triangular dark lines/patches?
I've checked for duplicate verts and hidden polys but there are none and as you can see on the first image everything is in quads!
So basically what I'm asking is how do I get a consistent smooth surface?

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

(And yes I edited those screenshots in paint because I have nothing else!)

should be the first link they give you called 'Thumbnail for Websites'

i'll get rid of these replies after you've done it to clean your post up :)
