Tips for better looking sculpties


Sometimes when viewing sculpts from a distance, you will see that they are incomplete.  This is not a texture issue, this is an issue with the way the SL client renders sculpties from various distances.  The image below demonstrates the problem.

It’s a simple fix.  Read below for more.


  1. Enable your Advanced menu by pressing Ctrl – Alt – D
  2. Go to advanced -> debug -> and type in rendervolumeLODfactor (no spaces)
  3. Increase the number shown to 4, 5 or 6 and press enter.
  4. Close the debug menu and enjoy your pretty sculpties.

    Yeah, they won’t change it, apparently it’s really bad for people with low end computers. :/
