This question already has an answer here:
I have asked a question to find out what the term is for 3D objects that appear suddenly and disappear suddenly in 3D games when the player moves towards or away from them.
We explicitly do not allow terminology questions spanning the breadth of gaming. If you want to know what this is for a specific game, alright, ask that.
In light of this comment, even though I could not locate anything on the tour that explicitly states this, I am concerned that my question will be closed, though an answer has been posted, and is helpful, I do not feel that it answers the question adequately, so I would be prepared to take action to prevent question closure if necessary.
Should I edit my question to mention a specific game, or a list of games that have the described behaviour? Or can I leave it as is?
