There is no easy to find resource for this so I made my own. It’s blender but the same rules apply to any program.
Pretty nice if you could make an tutorial about how to import and compile an video i would love you!!!

Question: How do many of you make LOD models?
I usually use Pro Optimizer modifier, lower down quality to: 50%, then 25%, then 5%.
Any other easy methods?
I routinely despise any kind of auto-generation, I make all mo LOD models by hand. It doesn’t take long and the result is better than a generator.
