Try if this works for you? ;) : https://web.archive.org/web/20150910080025/http://amber.rc.arizona.edu/lw/qemloss3.html I tried google for any news regarding a LW10 build, but failed to find any. Are you certain there is such a build? Also, I really wish that if someone chooses to drop a project, they'd have the kindness to drop the source into the public domain. I know most don't, but I still wish people did.

Isn't Qemloss just renamed as Reduce Polys+ ?

Might be wrong.

You are right, ReducePolys + is the new name for Qemloss2 (in LW10) , but Qemloss3 is offering UV preservation and is not directly integrated in LW (maybe in later versions, but not sure), thanks anyway

Ah, I don't know about LW10. I know that Reduce POlys+ in LW2015 at least tries to maintain UVs, so not sure if that means it's Qemloss 3?

@textoo: Another option if this doesn't work, is to use Blender and its Decimate tool, which does preserve UVs.

Downloading from archive.org still works for now, but relying on that isn't a great long-term solution, it needs a real long-term-sustainable home. LW3DG might want to step up and host it on their database website or such?
