Hi there! I'm in need of your help here.. :D One heightmap divided into square chucks. Each chunk gets frustum culled separatly. Each chunk is rendered with 4 LODs. Each chunk has 4 texture layers - currently done by overlapping triangles 4 times using different alphas. Question: What do you think would be the most efficient way (storage- and speedwise) of rendering the chunks? Display Lists... VA's... VBO's... Your two cents, please? :D

u should be able to implement them all + have the option to switch between them
eg in my game u can choose if u want to use VBO or VA or immediate for all rendering calls.
(usefull since if i turn on debug mode ingame + are using VBO the nvidia drivers crash)
