TAW View Distance Script (Addon Version)
Version: 1.5

Screen Shot


Bohemia Forums:
http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?162602-TAW-View-Distance-Script-%28Addon-Version%29

Description:
This is something that was lacking for ARMA 3 (Alpha). So I have created a simple to use View Distance & Grass Settings Dialog to allow players to adjust their view distance levels. There are three types of view distance levels.

- 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).

Notes:
This has been requested by quite a few people to make this an addon version and so here it is. 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. This DOES NOT work in single player.

For Mission Makers:
If you want to disable the grass Option 'None' just set in your missions init.sqf: tawvd_disablenone = true; and the grass option 'None' can't be used by the addon version or if you would just want to disable it for that specific mission you can set the following variable in your init.sqf: tawvd_addon_disable = true; and no one will be able to use this addon on that mission.

To set a maximum allowable view distance range just place this in your init.sqf:
tawvd_maxRange = 5000; //Maximum view distance of only 5000 can be set

UPDATE: v1.1


Notes:
I ended up changing the addon or basically redoing it from scratch and yeah.
To set a max range for View / Object distance just put set the variable tawvd_maxRange via init.sqf

Example:
tawvd_maxRange = 5000; //Maximum view distance of only 5000 can be set

Change log:
Added: Ability to set max view distance range.
Added: Ability to change values via Edit box.
Added: Ability to sync object rendering distance with view distance
Changed: When the grass setting 'none' is disabled it will actually be disabled..
Changed: Addon initialization and various states moved to FSM

I want to add this to my server/mission so that all players can use it. I want it to be accessible from anywhere in the normal mouse-scroll menu.

I've been using this as a mod (addon?) on servers that allow it, but Ive noticed some servers provide it to the players in their scroll menu regardless of whether they have the mod installed. So Im wondering how to do this on my own server. Thanks.

That's a script.

It's a script that's designed for mission editors, however the script and mod versions are well crafted that they will never, or at least designed to, conflict with each other.

Notice that this is NOT for a server, it is for a mission, you can host a server with a mission enabled with it and a mission without.

On the other hand, why 'put the mod in your server'? I understand modded servers do require the mods to be loaded on the host machine, but this mod is completely client side, you can use it almost anywhere in MP.

PS: Tonic rage quit the BI forum? What?
