    Hello Sir, Ma'am. I'm a newbie.



    As you can see in the picture, I limited the view of this camera just about 60 units.

    Surely, it limited how far we can see like LOD system but can we actually use this to replace LOD system?

    Thank you.

    Well generally the point of the LOD system is to see reduced complexity models at further distance, but if you just set small far clipping plane then you're going to see no models at further distance. That may work well in your game, or might not, but yes you probably don't need the LOD system in this case.
