    Title: LOD slider mostly affecting trees only - Novia
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No
    Details: The level of detail slider only affects trees
    Steps to Reproduce: Find a spot on the map where the overworld LODs start to "pop" - open the Options window, adjust LOD silder to maximum - then adjust slowly to minimum -- observe that mostly only trees are affected.

    See video here for example

    In this video example - notice the LODs popping on the Overworld around the river and surrounding terrain on the upper-right corner of the screen. Notice that changing the LOD slider has no effect on these LODs that are popping but only seems to affect the trees and the line of little rocks along the shore.

    I was under the impression that when the Player has their LOD slider set to "maximum" - the game engine will show all LODs at max quality all the time - but it doesn't seem to work this way?

    Thanks!
