Emissive LOD Distance

Question

schnurboy

Hello folks,

 

so i made a fresh install of the new NVE mod and combined it with the RCA, roads pack and the ymap files of "vremastered 2.0".

So far so good.

 

NVE brings some nice neon lights for koreatown and downtown, which i managed to combine with RCA so that there are no collisions.

The downtown and koreatown neon lights are visible all over the city, no matter on which mountain you are standing or how far you have been flown.

 

BUT there is the eclipse tower. NVE Razed equipped it with a "eclipse tower" sign, which illuminates at nighttime, but this signs isnt visible from far distance as all his other neon lights are.

So im wondering, did he just forget the LODs and SLODs for the sign? And even if yes, is it possible to increase the distance the LODs and SLODs can be seen.
Im trying right now but i cant get it to work.

 

ATM it looks like this: little further away and little closer and BLIP its there

Ive downloaded some franklins house lighting pack, which is an ymap file.
i placed it in the vremastered addon and it works perfectly, the lights are visible from far far away (and its only a YMAP file)

 

so i picked the files from NVE and looked them up in the vanilla ymaps.

i copied the lines and pasted them into the "franklins house lights" ymap, with the exact same settings as all the lights inside the file.

but NOTHING changed. you cant see the "eclipse tower" letters one meter further.

maybe you guys have an answer what line to change to get them working, i tried different lod and child distances, parents and child values etc. 

but its still not working. 

 

Here are the lines:

Maybe it is just the LODS of the files itself.

 

Have a nice weekend
