TAW View Distance - Addon

This addon was reworked by Smokkerino & Lexotan, and uploaded with Tonic (Original Creator) permission.


This addon was published for ARMA 3 back in 2013. Now it has been reworked by Lexotan & Smokkerino, and it fixes minor issues like crashes, it still has View Distance & Grass Settings Dialog to allow players to adjust their view distance levels. There are three types of view distance levels.
To allow this addon / mod on your server just copy the taw_a3.bikey to your servers Keys folder. This is also fully compatible with the script version.

- On foot: View distance set will only effect a player while they're on foot.
- In Car: View distance set will only effect a player when they're in a land vehicle or ship.
- In Air: View distance set will only effect a player when they're in an aircraft.
- Drone: View distance while operating a UGV/UAV.
- Multiple Saves for various settings
- ACE3 Intergration (if ACE3 Detected then the menu can be accessed via self interact)

And it also features 4 grass settings (None/Low/Normal/High).
And also please if you like our work rate this up, or at least give me some feedback! Have fun!

For some reason steam did not send me any of these comments notifications so:
@BremerBierbude Will check it fast as i can
@Cold Moon For me is working mate it applies settings to client, when you use zeus you are still in your client, maybe check scripts or other mods.
@SteveTheHero Grass has a none options wich makes it disappear.

"publishedid" inside the meta.cpp is missing! PLS Update from "Zero" to "2146956380" ;-)

Great works! Can you make it work with remote control too? When I use Zeus to remote control a soldier, I found the view distance didn't change when I get in an aircraft. Could you please fix that?

Too bad the 'grass" option only turns down terrain quality and not removing the actual clutter. When you have the terrain quality down bodies disappear just as if there was clutter on the ground. I thought this would get rid of clutter while maintaining the quality of the terrain.

Yes sir it is.

This is only require to be client side right?
