This function gets the LOD distance for any object / model ID.


float engineGetModelLODDistance ( int model ) 

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: Engine.getModelLODDistance(...)

Required Arguments

  • model: The model / object ID number you want to get the LOD distance of.


Returns a float representing the LOD distance of the model, or false if the model argument is incorrect.


This example calculates the actual LOD distance by taking into account the Video tab 'Draw distance' setting

local LODDistance = engineGetModelLODDistance( 1337 )
local actualLODDistance = math.min( 300, LODDistance * ( dxGetStatus().SettingDrawDistance / 100 + 1 ) )


Minimum supported server n/a
Minimum supported client 1.3.1-9.04779
Note: Using this function requires the resource to have the above minimum version declared in the meta.xml <min_mta_version> section. e.g. <min_mta_version client="1.3.1-9.04779" />


Issue ID Description
#9139 Invalid model ID will crash when used with engine LOD distance functions.
