Something happens to the rocks

Something happens to the rocks.

I am working with SP2 Lumion-B7 and parsimonious models of rocks in the image is rendered only a part. I have the feeling that some of the faces have their normals reversed.
 
Please forum and team mates Lumion confirm error or tell me I'm doing wrong.

Thank you very much everyone.

Hi Severino, some of the rock objects are supposed to be used as part of the terrain, not as free-standing objects that can be viewed from any angle, so Alexander didn't include the backs of the objects in order to avoid wasting polygons.

I'll ask him if he has any plans to update them, so that they could be used as free-standing objects in the future.

Thanks Morten for your quick response.
So I say, I understand that is not a fault of my computer. Am I right?

Kind regards

Yes, the missing backs are intentional :)

They are meant to be placed on existing terrain to create shapes that are hard to create with the painter. The back being invisible is a performance reason. We can however change them in some release to avoid confusion.
