Why Does This Happen?
Back in the spring, when I was first learning to zoom my camera far away, I noticed that sometimes objects just weren't there on far view.
I freaked the first time it happened and went racing from the House of 1000 Pleasures down to Pele, and yeah, my little train was still there. No one had stolen or deleted it.
I've noticed that keeping my draw distance up makes for better long distance viewing. I can zoom the camera further, and less stuff is missing-- but certain objects seem, reliably, to not be there.
These objects are scipted but some scripted objects are visible, and others aren't. I've not yet learned what, if anything, the difference is.
But anyway, here's the teleport board from 350 meters away.
