CH View Distance Addon

by
Champ-1


Description:
This little addon allows you to flexibly adjust your view distance and terrain quality based on actual ingame situation.
It's neatly packed with features:
- adjust view distance or terrain quality based on current vehicle type;
- synchronize object view distance to your view distance or adjust it automatically based on your current zoom;
- all settings save to profile and load seamlessly on every mission start;
- mission makers have the ability to limit maximum view distance and restrict deactivation of ground vegetation in the scenario.


Installation:
To install CH View Distance Addon you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.


Included files:
CHVD.pbo


Usage:
New hotkeys feature requires CBA A3 Addon. Though you can still run this script / addon without it, but hotkeys aren't going to work.
