Mesh upload. Huge vs normal models

Question

Hello! Does it make sense to upload huge mesh models but with a low LOD, so that later, by shrinking, them to get a model of higher quality? Or is it better to load the usual but with high LOD? Thank you!

No it doesn't. The switch points between LoD models are determined by the item's actual size, not the size it had at upload. In other words, if you upload at a larger or smaller size and the resize in-world, you get exactly the same result as you would if you had uploaded at the "right" size.

That is for regular mesh. When it comes to fitted mesh, there is a size related bug that some unscrupulous makers explot to make their builds seem less laggy than they actually are. I'd rather not go into details about that here of course.
