    How would you go in doing a terrain quad tree based LOD ? Something ROAM, or this : https://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/131841/continuous_lod_terrain_meshing_.php?page=2.

    First, what would be an ECS friendly or cache-friendly way to structure a quadtree? Or even a good way to make the tree without reference types ?

    Also, how would you deal with all the "horizontal dependencies" in the tree (dependent activation of vertices) ?

    I know the question is a little big vague, I just don't know where to start.

    This reference is very cool thank you! But this is still the easy to undersand and easy to frame into the ECS framework type of application : parrallel, very vertical with few horizontal interactions...
