Draw Distance

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if there's a mod for the draw distance in GTA III? As you may have noticed, there's a file called "timecyc.dat" that controls visibility and fog and stuff in your game. I've added those to Vice City and San Andreas and wow! You can tell the difference! If anyone knows of the mod I'm talking about, I'd appreciate your comments. Thanks a lot

Hum... I didn't ever know for a mod for GTA III related to Draw Dist. Try googlin'.

I have figured out how to increase the draw distance in GTAIII.

I was searching for a mod myself but couldn't find anything - so I started working on one myself.

Here's how I did it:

1. Download CFG Studio 2

2. Open the file "timecyc.dat" with CFG Studio 2

3. Find the Column called "FarClp"

4. Change every line in that column to "20000.0" (That's 10 times the standard maximum distance)

5. Save, and enjoy!

I don't know if this is the best way of doing it, but it works. It changes the draw distance to 20000.0 on all draw distance settings. So if you want to lower it again, you have to overwrite the modded file with the original timecyc.dat.

I've attached the modded file and a screenshot.
