LOD Issues – Your Opinion (Poll now Closed)

Update 13th May: The Poll is now Closed. 

So anyone paying attention the last few days knows that some mod trailers I use in my releases do not have lod models set up correctly.

This is what causes the issue of missing wheels when you see a trailer from a distance. While this isn’t a huge problem and many people don’t care, I would like to get your opinion on it.


The known trailers that cause these issues (still checking others) are the 2-axle city trailer, the cistern (used for arclid) and the SDC trailer from Smith Engineering. These impact many mods including the Big Stobart Mod. So the question is: Should I keep using them, or would you prefer I use standard SCS trailers, even though it means I can’t paint both sides independently which means some designs will have graphics pointing the wrong way.

For example; the yellow arrows on the Royal Mail SDC have the point pointing forwards to the cab, where as with the SCS trailers one side would have it pointing back towards the trailer doors.

Which is more important to you, invisible wheels from a distance or inaccurate liveries?

One thought on “LOD Issues – Your Opinion (Poll now Closed)”

  1. For whoever suggested using TZ models, the versions I use have no TZ variants.

    They have no 2axle city trailers. The Arclic silo I can fix as I have the SDCs, but if you know of a 2axle from TZ then please do point me to the mod.
