Viewing Distance

Step #200 in the Graphics Overhaul list

Featured In Mod Lists:
OpenMW supports a configurable viewing distance, to control how far you can see in the game.

To set your viewing distance:

  • Put viewing distance = 35840 (five cells) under [Camera] in your settings.cfg file (add the section if it isn't already there), or:
  • Run OpenMW-Launcher, click "Advanced", click the "Visuals" tab, then 5.00 into the box next to where it says "Viewing distance".

It can take some time to get the right value for good performance and visuals. Please see the Tips: Performance page for more information about performance tweaking and testing.
