Lighting and Sight

The lighting is terrible. The view distance sucks. Hate to make a great game bad by losing sight. Navigating is near impossible with A. being so short, and B lighting being horrible, and C View distance is so low. Other than that, the game seems great, not much to do yet, but from the looks of it, will be great.

    you could always turn your view distance up, I have mine at medium I think, it seems pretty decent

    I agree about lighting though, it needs improvements definately

    In your TUG install directory is a directory named "Config". The user_config.txt file has the settings you want. The variable named VIEWDISTANCE controls the draw distance.

    The default settings are 4, 8, 12, and 16 which are Tiny, Small, Normal, and Far respectively. Note unless your machine is a beast, if you set these values higher than 16, you will likely see some performance issues due to the the additional terrain and objects.

    If you play with these values and it somehow goes horribly wrong, the user_config.txt is safe to delete as the game will autogenerate one with default values if it is missing.

    With the art update the lighting should be improved to at least look much more pleasant.

    I may be incorrect in my assumption but have you noticed the lighting from the sun on objects? Not a fan of those lines, particularly noticeable on rocks.
