enter image description hereHow to unsubdivide/lower vert counts whilst remaining the topology, The quad remesh just stright up ruins my mesh, voxel doesn't work, literally just deletes my mesh, decimate, Well.. You get the picture.

here's the image for the wireframe.

Mesh after quad remesh.

  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots wire frame added. the unsubdivide lowers the tris to 4k verts I'm trying to preserve as much as possible without exceeding 10k verts, un-sub (two step) cause the verts to go around 4.8k. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You say that you want to be between 4k and 10k, so what's the problem with unsubdivide? Sorry I don't understand $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Oh, I noticed, I mean 8k verts to 10 k verts. I'm sorry :/ . $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ If unsubdivide and remesh don't work I'm not sure there's any other automatic method, if you want to keep quads of course. But you can do it manually with the checker deselect method $\endgroup$

If the automatic tools like Remesh don't correctly reduce the topology, do it manually with the Checker Deselect method:

  • Select a ring of edges (CtrlAlt right click):

enter image description here

  • Go into Select > Checker Deselect and the Operator box choose the selection ratio (by default it will keep selected one edge out of two, increase the ratio if you want to dissolve more edges):

enter image description here

  • Go into Select > Select Loops > Edge Loops in order to extend the selection:

enter image description here

  • Press X > Dissolve Edges, or shortcut CtrlX:
