Static Mesh re-import LOD bug
I have two tree meshes, "tree" and "tree_low". When I re-import the "tree.fbx" asset it is replaced by the contents of "tree_low.fbx". Currently I'm having to re-import everything for the LOD group from scratch in order to update the base LOD.

Hi Antidamage -
Have no fear, we have no intention of removing the single LOD importation setup. It may not be the best way to deal with LODs but we understand some have no other option.
I have reproduced your problem but currently this is a feature that is working as intended. As when you click the reimport option and not the LOD >> reimport LOD1, the engine is doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing. It is reading the FBX file and returning exactly what that file has told it to, so no LODs.
I can understand your frustration at this problem however and have entered a request to add a feature to reimport the Base mesh as an LOD and not as a whole FBX reimport.

A work around to this is to simply move the two FBX files from their source location on your HD to a new folder. Then when you tell the editor to re-import the file it won't be able to find them at their source location and you can then specify a new source fbx.
