GMAX LOD concept

Recommended Posts

Help! I'm trying to grasp the LOD concept. I have a group of parked cars. I create a dummy object and name it Parking_LOD_100. I attach all cars to this dummy object. I duplicate dummy and call it Parking_LOD_050. I select half the cars and attach to second dummy. I export and save and go see. When I open FS2004, the cars I had selected to keep are gone and the ones I thought would go away are still there. What am I missing? Thanks.

Hi!I don't understand all this linking thing the new SDK is talking about...I think the easiest way to do LODs in this case is like this:* Group half the the cars and name the group Parking_LOD_100* Make a dummy and name it Parking_LOD_50 That's it, you now have half the cars visible all the time and the rest of them when you get close enough.In general... just make a group of objects:* whatever_LOD_100 - the detailed modeland similar way* whatever_LOD_50 or 40 or even 99 sometimes when objects are big - the less detailed model.This is all that is needed.Tatu
