Description

Cast Shadow Maps

Global Illumination

Support Second Visarea

Normally, objects are considered to be in only one visarea.
This option allows them to be added to multiple visareas if their bounding box overlaps them, at the cost of some performance. 
Without this option, some large objects may not be displayed when viewed through portals in certain situations.

View Dist Ratio

Defines how far from the current camera position, the object can be seen.

AI Exclude from Triangulate

When this option is set, this object will not be considered part of the AI triangulation system.

No Dynamic Water
