Unit animations suddenly stopping as camera zooms out

Description: This might be related to my earlier issue, but now I'm seeing unit animations 'ripple' in and out as I move the camera.

With all ultra settings, when having the camera close I can see units doing their idle animations, moving and yelling and such. However, once the camera moves a certain distance, the animations abruptly end, which is very noticable and looks very bad. There's literally a visible 'line' as I move the camera between those in higher detail and those in lower detail.

Reproduction Steps: Start up any battle with any faction, and pan the camera down a line of units.

Screenshots: See attached images. These don't really show the 'line' with the animations switching (obviously), but you can see the detail level change for the units.

    Hi, it is me again. I can`t say for sure but I think it was when reading throug the comments for the LOD mod that I`ve read that also the animations switch to a less detailed variation when you move the camera out. So I think it is the same problem as last time - the engine trying to save some resources.

    I was afraid of that. I just don't understand why it should need to with the PC I have. I also don't get why I never saw it before. It's very hard to miss. Do you always remember it happening?
