This version of the mod will increase your draw distance 4x over the original settings. This is the optimal draw distance modification as it does not create lots of graphical issues, does not allow you to see the entire state at once, and makes the game appear how it should have out of the box.
Also, this modification comes with an increased "stream.ini" file, which allows you to hear pedestrians and vehicles from further distances. Please note that this does NOT alter the distance at which they appear.
This modification works with all versions of the game (1.0, 1.01, and 2.0)
