Re: Female Hairs disappearing when zoomed out [solved]
« on: December 29, 2018, 05:16:25 pm »
here is the issue:

there is a thing called LODs. when creating for sims 4 there are 3 LOD levels . LOD from 1  - 3 are how good quality u can view a mesh on a sim from a closer distance to a worse quality to be seen from a longer distance. the key to creating LODs in a mesh is making it so it will look good upclose and far away without it pixelating & looking bad. 1 LOD on a mesh is how you see it upclose at regular gameplay & in CAS range. the further you zoom out the more youre going into a different LOD level. if there is no LOD , the mesh will become invisible. alot of creators do not add LODs to their meshes because most people do not play the game zoomed out far into the sky and plus it required to recreate the entire mesh again just to be seen in LOD 2 or 3 which can cause a higher poly/ KB file size to your mod folder. most people who do create LODs compress files which can still be heavy in polys. so the decision is, would u want a creator to make all LODs for each mesh and your game lag? or zoom out for a split second let your mesh disappear because there is no LOD for that mesh and zoom back in ? its a iffy call to make

I personally would like people to at least make meshes with 2 LODs for simple zoom out gameplay when looking around but i do understand it can be a big issue if every mesh has LODs but its a way and sometimes they may not know how!


hope this helps you all understand.
