Draw Distance Increase
Hi guys
Was mucking around with some settings in the Game.xml because i felt that even increasing certain settings ingame to 200% etc still created a view bubble.

Well i changed
<viewDistanceCoeff>2.000000</viewDistanceCoeff>
<lodDistanceCoeff>2.000000</lodDistanceCoeff>
<foliageViewDistanceCoeff>2.000000</foliageViewDistanceCoeff>

to

<viewDistanceCoeff>8.000000</viewDistanceCoeff>
<lodDistanceCoeff>8.000000</lodDistanceCoeff>
<foliageViewDistanceCoeff>8.000000</foliageViewDistanceCoeff>

And gone is the clip bubble Smiley I guess you can increase it further but I'm running a GTX 1070 and with these new settings and still 60fps.
Give it a try if you wish to see crops further out Smiley


Regards
Mike

Where is the xml file to apply your modifications?

It should be in Documents/MyGames/FarmingSimulator2017. In that folder there should be an XML file called game.

When I changed it to 8.000000, my framerate was in the 30s in-game, it's usually stable at 60FPS at 2.000000. I also tried 4.000000, but that dropped my framerate to about 50. I have a GTX 980 and an Intel i7 5820k processor, is my PC not powerful enough for that level of draw distance?

probably not

Turn some other settings down. And you have increased beyond what was intended. So game engine might not be able to handle it proberly, plus your computer is most likely not strong enough. Doing this in FS13, i ould increase it alot, but times have changed since then.
