LOD Meshes and exact localization on the map


Recommended Posts

No. Low-poly LOD meshes for all separate objects you want to see from distance must already exists. It's them that DynDOLOD will enable/disable. DynDOLOD only avoids the creation of a bunch of huge .bto files. Here's what's in a .bto file (Markarth, untextured for better visibility) :

As you see, .bto files merge ALL existing low-poly separate objects. So... what happens if you change the huge tower from Dibella's temple into a giant Telvanni mushroom tower ? ---> The game will render the existing LOD (Dibella's tower) from distance. You have 2 solutions :

 

-rebuild this .bto file from within the CK.  :sick: 

An atrocious voodoo ritual requiring the use of external tools, the extraction of numerous specific objects meshes and textures, their placement in very specific folders, their conversion to .png files, various CK crashes and atlas generation...  :facepalm:

-use DynDOLOD

Ah ok, so these LOD generator projects basically only work with vanilla assets then? Guess I was thinking too revolutionary.

This is supposed to work with any assets, at the condition that the associated low-poly meshes do already exist.

And then mods like Grieche's SDO only replace the vanilla LODs, right?

Right.

Are these anything that need to be worried about when using the process outlined on the CK once all your files are installed?

What Zilav said. Warnings about vertices amount is rather a matter with old gen consoles. Even generating the vanilla LOD fires these warnings...

BTW, the next version of the archive I provided will implement fixes for Solitude buildings.
