About this mod

Increases draw distance with a simple ini tweak.

Important:
Save corruption has been reported by users (unconfirmed), so backing up your saves before trying the mod is recommended.

According to user feedback, it would seem that the tweak is dynamic and results may vary based on computer specs and game settings.
Adjustments may be needed, or avoiding the mod entirely.
Performance impact also varies, but on a high end PC it should be minimal. 2-3fps with max settings + RTX.


Install:

Unpack the zip file to your Cyberpunk 2077 directory

OR

Create a text file called DrawDistanceBoost.ini (any name works) under "Cyberpunk 2077\engine\config\platform\pc"
Then add the following:

[Streaming]
DistanceBoost = 42.000000


The default value for the vanilla game is 0
Can be decreased or increased as desired, high values such as 50~ and above start to create flickering (this may be fixable if other settings get tweaked)


Uninstall:

Delete the ini  "Cyberpunk 2077\engine\config\platform\pc\DrawDistanceBoost.ini"

OR  (if you experience the mod persisting in your saves)

Open "Cyberpunk 2077\engine\config\platform\pc\DrawDistanceBoost.ini"
Change "DistanceBoost = 42.000000"  to  "DistanceBoost = 0.000000"


Known issues:
If you experience any flickering or other oddities (invisible doors), try lowering the boost value.
Performance is YMMV - may be next to none or a heavy hit
Theres a small amount of known objects (highways) that may disappear at very specific distances (when you are far away).
