This should generally be true for all objects, and let the renderer make decisions about whether to render objects in the depth only pass. if any rendering features rely on a complete depth only pass, this variable needs to go away.:

  • use_complex_as_simple_collision (bool): [Read-Write] Controls whether the complex (Per poly) geometry should be treated as ‘simple’ collision. Should be set to false if this component is going to be given simple collision and simulated.

  • use_max_lod_as_imposter (bool): [Read-Write] Use the Maximum LOD Mesh (imposter) instead of including Mesh data from this component in the Proxy Generation process

  • virtual_texture_cull_mips (int8): [Read-Write] Number of lower mips in the runtime virtual texture to skip for rendering this primitive.

  • virtual_texture_min_coverage (int8): [Read-Write] Set the minimum pixel coverage before culling from the runtime virtual texture. Larger values reduce the effective draw distance in the runtime virtual texture.
