Description

The view distance determines how far away you can see.

Effects

The view distance directly affects the amount of processor power required to run the game. A higher distance may cause the game to lag and possibly crash, especially on devices with slower processors.

Beasts will only spawn within the view distance.

Electrics in general, will only work within the view distance. This can be very important in larger electrics builds. Some electrics which keep a value, such as the memory bank, will still keep that value when the player is farther away.

Your kept animals will despawn if you are away from them too long. This may also be related to the view distance, but has not been verified yet.
