It is possible, yup. The installer this time will actually be smaller than last version because of all the resolutions that were dropped temporarily.

Lol. Last night. I decided to play around with the draw distance hack and set it to 00009F48. Which is 325632 and it actually worked and works loaded down with a heavy map and lightmaps. I used it to dramatically extend the length of my map, pretty much from one end of the WC grid to the other and its all visible, all the time.

That is the equivalent of 27136 feet. You have a map that large?

Probably don't need it to be that large TBH. I just don't know exactly how far it actually needs to be and wanted to see if I could be evil and break it. The map is mostly concentrated in a relatively small area, but there is a a large narrow section in front of that, which runs from one end of the grid to the other to convey the correct look.

Further conversion says that is 5.14 miles lol. According to the internet:

The edge of the Earth (as it curves) is about 3 miles from viewing point to the edge. Ever stare out at the ocean? The farthest point you can see is about 3 miles out.


You may have cranked it up a little too much :P

Yeah it probably doesn't need to be more than 4000, although I haven't yet determined what value is needed to show the entire grid.

Just noticed a problem with our existing double draw distance hack.

The airplane in Abandoned mission is now visible in the sky waiting to be triggered. Normally the airplane is out of the view distance so it can't be seen until triggered. Once triggered the airplane swings down into view (I suspect the plane is really a door that has a huge hinge point).

What is interesting is that if you look at it directly (from where I am standing in the screenshot that I attached below) you can't see the plane.   You have to look down a little (notice my reticle).    Is the view distance a square or rectangle?
