Spore View Distance

Unread postby CringeCrime » Wed Dec 20, 2017 6:21 pm

Is there a way to increase the view distance in spore so i can see creatures from a farther distance? For example, like the epic play mod, it increases view distance by a lot. I want a similar mod to that but without the epic part and just the view distance part.

Wait, does this mod only include to zoom out extensively? Or does it also help the render distance to show farther?

Only changes how far you can zoom
Changing loddistances requires a little more work

That's odd, the epic play mod has the render distance adjusted to where you can see farther and creatures appear way farther than normal render distance, maybe someone could delete the epic part from the epic play mod and just leave the camera settings the developer had left
