SA had a tool called SA Limiter which let the player eliminate the texture bug (lod textures popping up / textures disappearing entirely). It made the game a lot more laggier, but it was worth it, because once you installed it, you'd never see lod textures near you.
So is there such tool for IV? I think a lot of people would appreciate it, since sometimes I get like 60 fps on maximum settings, but no textures at all. I mean what the actual f*ck Rockstar...

Also it is not the texture that disappear, but the models. Ofcourse, textures go along with the model.

What in the code has changed? I mean, what actually caused the "dissappearings"?

I've just resolve this case 0000107: [openFormats (global)] Improve OpenIV Resource sub-system and fix grmModel data
This is means I have rewrite a some part of our resources system and remove some excess data from models resources classes.
Probable it will fix disappearing of models in global mods.

|Some major things I discovered throughout experience:|
- Don't let too many object use the same WTD, spread it. Also don't put too many textures inside one wtd, 100 is too much.
- Put LOD objects inside WDD, not seperate WDR files.
- If you create a custom map, MAKE lods. Superlods are welcome but not needed if you have a small map.
- Put (super)lods in a root wpl, put normal objects and generics in streams.

Also I don't have anything installed on GTA IV, and I still get the texture bug there. Sometimes even on medium textures. My mods are on EFLC.
Also models don't disappear for me, since I still have collision. I can drive on the map, simply no textures showing up. Also lampposts, garbage cans, peds and cars still spawn, simply the map itself don't.

Maybe it's just too much for the engine with all those high LOD models. I never had trouble with stock cars. I'm also using only SparkIV.
Your system specs?

Right now I'm using car mods in EFLC and only .wtds that are way under 2 Mbs (mostly 1 MB), also it's not like I have every car replaced, only have like 6.
In IV I don't have car mods at all, but if I use high textures I get textures even without them. I also have timecyc mods installed, but I don't think that, that'd be causing it.
My system specs are way over the min requirement.
CPU: i3-2120 with 3.3 Ghz (dual core cpu acting like a quad core, it actually runs better then my old quad core 2.88 ghz cpu)
GPU: Nvidia GTX 560 TI (GigaByte version)
Memory: 4 GB RAM DDR3
OS: Vista 32 bit (tried on Win 7 64 bit, same god damn thing)
Also I'm really in love with my police cars, and the cars I have installed, so I'd rather have Limiter just like SA had, since like I said, sometimes I get no textures, but 60+ fps, that's just pathetic lol
