Hey guys, I just ran into a problem where rocks disappear, in-game, when I get too far away from them.

Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8B-UdgSis8

Thanks!

Looks like a LOD(level of detail) issue to me. a lot of models, especially foliage and detail have a lod setting which makes them fade at a certain distance to help improve performance.

What xmodels are you using for them rocks, are you increasing the scale of them? Try a different model.

I'm using prop_misc_rock_small_01-09 (all the available rock models of this size). I noticed the same props on mp_creek, and they don't seem to disappear until you get much farther away than in my map. Increasing the scale helps a little bit, but not much.

i hex-edited the xmodels and set the lod distance for the low-poly version to 2000 (was 600). I renamed them, so nothing will be overwritten, just replace them in radiant (or use a text editor and add a trailing _dist in the .map file)
