Many people hate how sculptie prims break down or collapse at a short distance. This is most troublesome with smaller prims but affects all sculpties. I found this solution awhile back while I was buying some sculpted grass for my sim. It is an easy fix that unlike changing your Draw Distance, will not create extra lag for you!
1. Hit Ctrl+Alt+Shift+D to turn on the Advanced menu (now located at the top of your screen on the toolbar).
2. Go to Advanced – Debug Settings (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S)
3. Type in RenderVolumeLODFactor
4. Increase the value 4.000 and you’re done!
Thanks go out to Ashade Sinister for this most useful tip. Be sure to check Ashade’s profile in SL if you are interested in some nice grass! 😀 Comes with several environmental sounds and particle effects.
