HEX Editing the fog distance - by Geoman
I don't know if anyone knows about this but here's a tip to move the fog further at the distance and increase the Terrain Range:
Set all Graphics options to Max. Open rbprefs.dat (in the Data folder) with a hex editor and change the 9th byte from 64 to FF. You can also change the 10th byte from 0 to 1 or 2 (any more and the game will crash!)
Now when you fly, the fog will appear far in the distance and you will enjoy your flight and the new terrain graphics!
NOTE: Always backup your original files first and note that the above change will have a drastic effect on your frame rates!!!
