Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to customize the settings of a LOD group?

Hey. I just came across with LOD groups but I'm not totally happy with their default settings. I'd like to change the settings for all my existing LOD groups (Small/Large Prop, Foliage, Vista, etc.) however I haven't yet figured it out how. One of these customizations would include change Screen Size for a LOD level. (How) is it possible?

That post actually kinda covers almost everything of what I needed however it still leaves open one of my problems. How do you set a Screen Size (for example) for each LOD level?

Sorry, I wasn't able to find an answer to that. I would think you could add a parameter to the LOD in the initial file, but I am not sure what the parameter would be.

@MDancer, I added another comment to the thread mentioned by @engelmanna above. In essence, change the LOD-settings in one of your meshes: uncheck the Automatic Distance Calculation then in the mesh editor set the desired LOD Screen Size for each LOD level.

Back in the Content Browser, right click and select Level of Detail and Copy LOD settings from the mesh you just changed. Then select all the meshes you wish to copy the settings to, the right click and select Level of Detail and Paste... This may trigger a rebuild of the meshes, which took a lot of time in my case.
