Default Re: Draw distance really sucks... do this! *pics included*

Hey guys let me know if you find something really interesting!

I can see that a lot of the parameters in the first post here are also present in my latest config, and from the first post I couldn't quite make out what the exactly parameters improving the drawdistance was. I remember spending a buttload of time back in the release days to achieve the perfect balance between performance and quality, though mostly on the high quality side. I also recall fiddling around with some values for this, but they ended up being too costly on the performance side. I did a lot of research and used Madboris' work extensively, but I could have missed something. So do report if you find something worthy of adding to the 1.01 config I made back then
