Hello,

I’m using the "no distance levels" option in the exporter (So I can specify lods in the group names, otherwise 1_1000_ is automatically added).
I tried to have some LOD in the bogies but I couldn’t make it work: with the above hierarchies, bogies and other objects disappear .

As soon as the 2_1200_bo01 hierarchy is removed, bogies and missing objects are back.

Thanks for ideas on the problem.

Same problem. Both bogies and doors disappear if I use the heirarchy suggested by Paul at <!– l –><a class="postlink-local" href="http://amabilis.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&amp;t=4003&amp;p=22530&amp;hilit=lods#p22530">viewtopic.php?f=7&amp;t=4003&amp;p=22530&amp;hilit=lods#p22530</a>&lt;!– l –>. If I try to use the custom LODS, the program crashes. Automatic generated LODS do work.

Hi…

Hmm – yeah – &quot;Custom LOD’s&quot; are mangled in MSTS too – must be the exporter – no ???

bump&quot; Now did anyone ever sort this problem of having LODs in bogies. I am working on a project and seems I may have the same problem.

Was there a way around the problem, or is it just a matter of no LOD on bogies

Hello,

I don’t remember how I solved this, but here are the export options I used and a hierarchy example. No problems now.

Hi,

Another option that always works (when exporting custom LODs) is to create several first-level LOD groups in the bogie group, but no second- or third level groups.
For example:
[code:8hqk0wxw]1_0200_bo01
1_0100_bo01wh01
1_0100_bo01wh02
1_0500_mediumparts
1_1000_distantparts
[/code:8hqk0wxw]

Cheers,
Michael

Hi Michael, I am not sure if what you posted will work correctly. You have the parent group using a lower LOD than the distant parts group. Shouldn’t it be:

[code:28nhzs62]1_1000_bo01
1_0100_bo01wh01
1_0100_bo01wh02
1_0500_mediumparts
1_1000_distantparts[/code:28nhzs62]

BTW I use a similar grouping based on the examples you sent me a couple months back. Works like a charm! <!– s:) –><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!– s:) –>
