increase render distance?

Increasing render distance won't do you any good; all it will do is reduce the frame rate, because more things get rendered that you won't actually be able to properly see because they'll still be obscured by the fog, which is there to make scouting less trivial.

Unlike games such as Minecraft, where you can increase the render distance to a ridiculous distance as long as your PC can handle it, the W3D engine is set up a little differently. As Pushwall said, it won't really have an effect without changing the fog level of the map itself, which as he mentioned, is there by design. Rendering objects beyond what the fog will allow you to see would only slow your system down, and still not allow you to increase your view distance, which is what I believe you are actually looking for.

And most likely, the render distance is already farther than what you can see, as it is a global setting (not per-map). Notice on large clear maps like Ridge War, you can see a long way! Therefore, increasing the render distance would do absolutely no good.

well yeah i meant view distance, never would i have come to the conclusion its FoW. Seems good and bad at the same time but i will get used to it. Also why is APB dead these days? Half a year ago maybe more there were aprox as many APB players as in Apex

It comes and goes. Hop on discord when you want to get a game started! You can highlight all APB players by doing @apb players

People will join :)
