kju's VD tweak should be included as standard for all Arma2 players ! I get a consistent 3.1km sight of vehicles (one pixel!) at a VD of 6km. Works perfectly every time. Thanks again kju ... can't thankyou enough.
randir14 what setViewDistance value do you use?
no worries Kremator. Tomorrow finally the signed version.

I hope this is not BIS cheap trick of enhancing performance.
This cheap trick was used by ACES to improve performance in FSX with serice pack 2.
I noticed it as I wanted to try the mentioned new fire control feature on Tanks...well...at 900m you dont need fire control...another cheap trick?
This game is not getting better...instead its starting to annoy me.
Feature after feature is disappering, and known config errors are simply not correctet by BIS, but by user made addons.
This must be a big Joke.

Alex72 you mean 350m or 3500m ?
What view distanve value do you use?
with Kju's addon - all is ok, i'm just now tested it.
viewDistance=2014.9282; if I raise it higher the vehicles come into view but the pop-in is still closer than it was before. I can see trees and buildings at the max distance but not vehicles or people. For example in my first screenshots I used to be able to see units at the top of the hill, now they're disappearing at the end of the runway.

Be right back with results.
EDIT: Version 58899. I cant see DSHKM's (just example i made for this test) even 300 meters away with HIGH/VHIGH object detail. With or without Kju's addon. When i zoom (right mouse i can see the 300m and 400m car, but not the 500m one. Bino's shows all. Exact same thing with and without Kju's addon.
EDIT2: Also forgot to say that it takes a long time for vehicles to load. I mean that when i use bino's it takes like 1,5 - 2 seconds until they load and show. So when i look quick and look around - i see nothing there. With and without Kju's addon. Units i see much further. Last test i saw them at 450 meters but cars standing 3, 4, 500 meters is not visible. And i have no performance lag that could be a reason for slow load. Utes with me and 3 empty cars.
