How important are lod s in case of performance??
How much performance can I save with lods? Is there a quik answer? What is Base and auto lod?
Does Ue4 only have precomputed visibility it is the same as occlusion culling in unity?

UE uses both precomputed visiblity and occlusion culling.
LODs are always a good idea when you have a very populated scene. It doesn't have to be set up for every object but is recommended for more detailed objects that you will not notice the details on further away.
The base is the LOD0 that is your mesh with the most detail. Auto LOD takes the distance settings into account when you have your LODs in place, so as you view them in the mesh viewer if you have other LODs imported it will auto load the next LOD level when you pull away or zoom into your mesh. You can adjust the distance values in the details panel in the mesh viewer as well.
If you have any other questions feel free to ask!
