PROPER - Buildings Tweak Visuals - Low
ArmA II buildings seem to be one cause of trouble:
LOD switching: While moving the shape of the buildings changes noticeable (resolution LODs).
FPS impact: The buildings seem to have a big impact on FPS, while is not perceived while playing anyway.
Mini freezes: While flying, at times you experience mini halts of the game. This may be related
to the resolution LODs or mipmap changes.
The approach of this addon is to drop:
The very detailed resolution LODs.
The very detailed mipmaps - the highest quality textures.
The very low mipmaps - the textures seen at distance to reduce more change.
The overall goal is better FPS, less LOD switching and better visual look for ArmA II buildings
As we always recommend use modfolders.

Credits & thanks:
Sincere thanks to T_D for making the VegetationPatcher and MipMapRemover apps!
Without your excellent work, the quick development and updates on request this would not be possible.
On positive feedback T_D might release these tweak apps to the general public to
allow anyone tweak any model and texture to their needs.
