Leadwerks 3 doesn't compile CSG geometry into a BSP tree, rather the geometry gets collapsed to model geometry at load time and uses the scene octree for culling. So it scales gracefully with large environments.


The easiest way to test this claim is go in and quickly sketch out a huge level and click "Run". This sounded fun so so I went in and made a bunch of large boxes to represent a city and ran around my beast of a level. (This was purely just to show that large environments run at 60 fps, so I didn't add any materials that is why the scene only has 1 texture.)
