I experimented a little with the settings.xml to change graphic options to values you can not set threw the options in the game. Like ‘10_extreme’ for more visibility (Model Viewing Distance).
They are not overwritten by the server until you enter the game options but i’m not sure these changes had a real impact on the game. I would sadly say I failed here.
So here is my question: Is it planed for the future or even possible to give us more options for graphic settings? I think the most of us have a lot better graphic cards than we had in 2007 and there is a lot more possible today.
