Description

Description:
Sets the desired terrain resolution in meters.

Syntax

Syntax:
setTerrainGrid
Parameters:
grid: Number - For default landscapes the supported resolutions are:
  • 50 - smoothest, less lag
  • 25 - default in multiplayer
  • 12.5 - default in single player
  • 6.25
  • 3.125 - bumpiest, higher lag
If unsupported resolution is selected, the nearest supported resolution is used instead. Higher number means less vertices are used for terrain rendering, making distant hills less smooth. Value 12.5 corresponds to selecting Terrain Detail Normal in Video options, 50 to Very Low, 3.125 to Very High. In older games like Armed Assault terrain resolution is fixed, determined by the world created.
Return Value:
Nothing

Examples

Example 1:
setTerrainGrid 12.5;

Notes from before the conversion: This is like opening up your video preferences and changing "terrain detail", i.e.: setTerrainGrid 50 = lowest detail setTerrainGrid 3.125 = highest detail It is similar to the command setViewDistance.

Effects on grass:
  • 50: disables/removes grass altogether.
  • 25: grass is visible.
  • Lower values make grass drawn a bit further at distance. However the effect is decreasing rapidly: Grass radius of 25 is 100%. 12.5 is now like 100% + 20%, 6.25 is like 100% + 20% + 5% and 3.125 is 100% + 20% + 5% + 1%. Note these are estimates!

Arma 2 Supported Reso: In Arma 2 you are not stuck to 50, 25, 12 etc. 45 is a lower setting then 25!

Arma 3 Multiplayer default: Some testing indicates that the default value for Arma 3 multiplayer is 10 - just like before. 10 is between "Normal" and "High". An user's terrain detail setting is ignored in multiplayer just like in Arma 2.
