Game Engine LOD crashes when
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

System Information
Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 13.10 and Windows 7

Blender Version
Broken: 2.69.9 (any recent build)

Short description of error
@Daniel Stokes (kupoman) 'Levels of Detail' system causes crashes when used in the Game Engine. Once an object has been replaced with it's lower resolution version, if it tries to replace it again with the higher resolution version, it crashes with a segmentation fault. The LOD system seems to work fine when you move around in the viewport, but crashes when used in the Game Engine.

Similar to the bug I reported here, it's seems to be when an object is 'reintroduced' into the scene do you get a crash.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Open
  • Start the Game Engine
  • Move away from the sphere (using WASD keys), you will see the LOD working
  • Move back towards the sphere to make the LOD load the higher resolution sphere
  • Crash

reverted this commit, needs more investigation.

I had a similar problem, it seemed to have something to do with the mesh names. In my case I had multiple tree types, each mesh simply named "tree". Renaming did the trick for me.
