Source codezLOD.h

A LOD table defines how models should look based on their distances from the in-game camera. A model can have up to 4 levels of detail, each level being a separate version of the model, spaced at increasing distances from the camera. Once the maximum distance is reached, the model starts fading out of view.

Format[edit]

The asset data starts with an int which defines the amount of entries in the LOD table, then the entries themselves.
