Mod here is outdated from now and will not work properly after the Silver Ridge update. Check this mod instead or browse all the mods for newer versions.

By default, animals spawn distance is 384 meters and despawn distance is 416 meters.
This mod will increase spawn distance to 718 meters and despawn distance to 750 meters.
There is technically possible to make those values even higher, but in such case game can crash at random moment or at the moment when you hit animal at distance longer than 750m.
So far those values seems like safe for use (I was able to shoot and harvest animals without any issues).


Installation:
Go to your Steam games library. Right click on "theHunter:COTW" and choose "Properties". Press "SET LAUNCH OPTIONS" and past this line for making the game being able to load the mods (with the dot in the end):
--vfs-fs dropzone --vfs-archive patch_win64 --vfs-archive archives_win64 --vfs-archive dlc_win64 --vfs-fs.
or if the game wont start or crash at launch try this instead:
--vfs-fs dropzone --vfs-archive archives_win64 --vfs-fs.
Also here in "Posts" once was mentioned that the game will run with the mod(s) only if there is will be no dot (.) in the end of Launch Options. It doesn't clear for me why some settings of Launch Options works great for some people and not for the others ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
So if the game crash on launch or just doesn't launch at all, try one-by-one both blue strings from above and then same strings but without (.) in the end.

In the same Properties window choose "LOCAL FILES" tab on top of it and click "BROWSE LOCAL FILES" to open game root folder. Extract here ZIP archive. After all path should look like "...\Steam\steamapps\common\theHunterCotW\dropzone\settings\hp_settings\animal_types.bin".



If you want to experiment with those values by yourself, take a look at DECA tool from Krys Kamieniecki.By default, animals spawn distance is 384 meters and despawn distance is 416 meters.
