Getting the poly count of the LODs of a model?

Original Post by: chrisell Wed Feb 10 15:43:15 2016

(Using Python) I'm trying to figure out the best way to grab poly counts for any model open in the editor.

Started with


To get the highest LOD. I can count walking the database using MWALK_ON. But how do I step down through subsequent LODS?

Any tips on how I can do this would be appreciated.

To do what you just did for the highest LOD, just call mgLessDetail. After you do this only the polygons for the nodes in this LOD will be on.

Wow - I totally skipped that. I'd seen mgMostDetail and mgLeastDetail but I totally spaced it on mgLessDetail and mgMoreDetail.

Thanks :)
