Description

This is new issue, did not happened before 1.58. In some cases ViewPilot LOD of modelSpecial might not be rendered correctly.

The problem is that while proxies are rendered flawlessly (though they lack texture quality), the mesh disappears at certain angles, making aiming near to impossible.

From my research it seems to be a flaw in optimization that makes ViewPilot LoD disappear when 0.0 faces are not in field of view, and the case of proxy only Resolution LoD certainly triggers it.

Reproduction
Attached simple repro addon for easy reproduction. Please try out RPG-7V with various munitions, look around and try to aim down the sights.

Swapping ViewPilot to ViewGunner fixes the issue on our side, but I leave the ticket in case somebody runs into similar problem.

I was wrong. Modelspecial won't use ViewGunner LOD but Resolution LOD when ViewPilot is not present.

Please fix it ASAP, the quality of textures suffers too much (and it might be even gamebreaker to some extent.)

I have found the direct case.

Studying this might make working reflex sights possible!
