    TL;DR: Is there a way to overwrite the LOD Bias in edit-mode, without altering actual project assets?

    We started using Level Of Detail via LOD Group recently and one caveat we ran into is that the SceneView culls objects using the LODs as well.

    The problem for us is that while building the level, we would like to see further and especially smaller objects than in the actual game view. Looking further means LODs should get culled much later, which allows us to see smaller objects while painting them from a certain distance.

    The workaround we currently use is to set the LOD Bias in Quality Settings to 10000. However, it already occurred that people commit this change to version control by accident.

    We would like to find a method where we don't need to modify Quality Settings.
