I had a thought....
Can we have a scene modifier list?
for effects that apply to all objects in a scene?
I was thinking a good one would be Scene LOD Tesselator
and maybe something that makes a KD tree from the scene, and then moves all
models to a linked lib,
then as you move the camera, the KD tree pre loads, and loads in meshes.
(so you can have massive - full detail scenes - no proxies at 100% quality
this is already possible in the game engine (including hardware geometry
instancing now in UPBGE :D)
