I recognize that this may not be an issue limited to this mod, but texture popping, and the like is very agrivating to over look, and sometimes waste ammo on. HL2's manner of taking care of LOD creates alot of visual artifacts that create alot of distraction from the matter at hand. Is there any way to completely disable texture LOD, regardless of the certain performance hit you'll take.

I guess I should show an example.

the blue lines show levels,

It's hard to find an example of a horizontally aligned lod pop, without having movement.

You'll find mipmapping in pretty much every game under the sun - it's barely even an LOD technique.

The command that he blathered off did in fact address what I was asking about, but it made gameplay significantly harder. Is there any way to create more levels of mipmapping so instead of one heavy line of change, you have a few lesser ones?

Not really - too many and you take up too much video memory per texture.

I'm guessing that this is the issue that Rad Linker's "Mipmap Texture Quality" adresses?
