    Default Greater View Distance

    I was wondering if there is any mod allowing for greater view distance ?
    Along with the ability to see resources for greater distances too.

    While there might not be a mod for it (unless you count the 'Putting Horizons back in Horizons' thread that edited the sky), you can look in your "ClientPrefs_Graphic.def" in your preference folder for these lines of text:

    Code:
    	float loadDist = 500
    	float unloadDist = 550
    	float terrainLoadDist = 650
    	float terrainUnloadDist = 700
            ....
    	float fogStartDist = 423.64453
    	float fogEndDist = 500
    Try messing with those and see what comes up - but be sure to put it on your resources_override, not sure if the client messes with that file on start-up.

    Beware if you do put it in resources_override though, your in-game options might not change the graphics anymore. After all, it seems to correspond to the original file

    I added +500 to each one of them and it does increased the range , thanks
    Although It doesn't seem to change the resource range visibility.

    Hmm. Was thinking that would edit the resource load dist if you edited "loadDist".

    I also see this in there " float effectMaxLoadRange = 50" but that's probably just for spell effects and whatnot. Resource and mob loading distance might be server-side, then

    Either way, you're welcome Just note that you might crash a bit more if you have a larger view distance. Is why the devs cut it back in the first place
