Black windows on distance

Anyone know why that doors/windows on buldings are always entirely black while you are on distance? It might just be me who thinks it looks extermely weird.

It may look weird, but this game is fairly old now and it cannot in any way compete with the games of today. It is probably un-fixable as it might've been purposely added to the game.

Without going too much into boring details, it's because of the sector/portal performance optimisation system of the game. It's fixable with 3Ds Max/Maya and level editor+xrLC, but the amount of work doesn't worth the result. I can live with it.

I had some idea that it was caused by some mod like the shaders I'm using, or some LOD textures.. I dont know.. Thanks for clearing it up. I can easily live with it too.
