Description

Description:
Set rendering distance. Setting view distance to <= 0 resets the value to the client's options (set in Options → Video → General → Visibility → Overall).
Client-side max view distance is limited by the server's view distance.
View distance also defines the maximum distance between a unit and any other unit they can know about. Higher view distance will involve more AI simulation cycles for every unit, which causes low performance.
