Lod limits

What are the poly/vertex lod limits?... I rather have a reference instead of going through many crashes and still be just guessing.

I didn't see anything about it in the geometry tutorial.

I think the question is still the same as of high-detailed geometry: how the game can handle zmodeler-created .yft file. Still a mystery "Base" value applies with some additional limitation: lods are used for crash-glass models and for deformation and scratches overlay. I don't know internal limitations on game code, but these routines might have some constraints on geometry detail level.

Thank you, actually I found this

L0: 50k - 60k
L1: 10k - 20k
L2: 6.000 - 11k
L3: 2.500 - 7.000
L4: 300 - 900

It's somebody else's observation and I guess I'll go look it up in between simple small mb vehicles to big detail models like a cargoplane and maybe update if I find big difference... here is original link

Also what is the main dummy base value? Do you have any information how do I scale it? Is it in relation to mass or polygon size?

no ideas. it certainly relates to memory usage of the model file, so it is rather connected to the vertices count on a model.
