Better LOD control for 1.0
I was wondering if you planned on making a way to set LOD to 0% at a push of a button.

As I am on my Model Editor and on the LOD properties menu. I do not see a way to set my LOD at 0. the billboard as low as i can go.

The reason why i need this is because i need my grass meshes to disappear at a distance so that i can boost game performance.

I know i am just licenced for the 2.0 but i plan on buying the 1.0.
Please make this possible in 1.0.

If there is a way, please somebody tell me.
-Thanks

Shatterstar, inspect D.grassRange() and D.grassDensity(). It makes grass disappear after a certain distance (control thickness too). Using LOD to make objects disappear is still costly since there are still draw calls made to that invisible LOD. This is sorta one of the "basics" in good design...

RE: Better LOD control for 1.0
thank you for sharing the knowledge. I have a programmer, and I am just the 3d artist for our team, but i know enough about code to know what you are talking about. I will tell it to my programmer. He probably already knows this. and he will probably call me stupid for even asking on the forum about it. And he will probably tell me that I'm just bothering everyone on here by asking questions...lol. but in all seriousness, thanks for explaining this to me.
