Per the Wiki..

You have distance limits in regards to how far apart the furthest prims can be in a linkset. That distance is Known as the Linkability Rule and is as follows:

New Linkability Rule

The linkability rule for objects changed as of Dec 2010. The main motivation was to make the linkability check more efficient but a consequence is that they are also much simpler. The size-dependency of the prims has been discarded. The only thing that matters is the bounding sphere of the collection of prim centers. The linkability rule can be written as:

 LINKABLE = D < 54  AND  N ≤ 256 where D = diameter of the smallest bounding sphere of the collection of prim centers and N = number of prims in the collection

If you are interested in how the old formula worked, see Linkability Rules/Havok 4.

Notes

  • [2011-08-27-16:52] Andrew Linden: 54 was the minimum sphere that still contained all of the legacy linkable content.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Basically all the bounding spheres need to be within an imaginary sphere of 54 meters. You have one or more prims that sticks out beyond that imaginary sphere.

You can see the bounding boxes if you are building in an open area by using the Developer Menu Option: 

Develop / Render Metadata / Bounding Boxes  - This may help you see the protruding sphere.
