    LOD = Level of Detail.

    As you get further away from an object... it takes up less of your vision (and less dots of resolution on your monitor). Therefore, you can drop its level of detail... saving memory and computation power. UnrealEngine does this without your input -- but you can control it a bit for certain reasons.

    I'm not sure I follow you. BSP and LOD are two different things.
    And UDK doesn't handle LOD automatically last time I checked. You have to make the lower detail smeshes by yourself if you want to have any kind of lod-smeshes.

    No he was talking about landscape which does indead run off an automatic level of detail system.

    Actually unreal has auto LOD generation for Particle Effects, although its not very 'smart' most of the time.
