The level of detail of objects has long been a subject of graphics research. Large-scale, distributed simulations give us the opportunity to expand the level of detail concept to actions as well. Nearby actions involving objects may need to be enacted using inverse kinematics. At further distances, similar actions could be enacted by replaying motion capture data, because contact relations may not be noticeable. It is not even necessary to display actions that are outside an agent's circle of influence [26, 36].

Positions are defined by exact coordinates, an object position, or a character position. The CML elements defined for Movement are either move-to or turn-to. Pointing defines a pointing gesture toward a coordinate, object, or character. The CML element defined for this movement is point-to. Grasping defines motions that require the character to hold, throw, or come in contact with an object or another character. The CML elements defined for Grasping are grasp, throw and touch. Gaze defines the movements related to the head and eyes.
