It's more a cosmetic change rather than anything with an actual impact. My twin HD7970s could easily handle it so I'd like to see this option ( as well as have Graal properly render at 1440p res )

Cosmetic or not, it still changes the gameplay experience drastically from not having it if servers utilize it properly. I'm all for better offscreen drawing, but it should be for everyone and not an individual option.

How bout an automatic check to verify your GFX card is higher rated than a block of moldy cheese?

Many games (including MMOs) utilise a draw distance...this is somewhat similar :o

Actually you can already change the sync distance via script. People playing on early ipods have a much smaller resolution than the newer ipods and thus have much smaller sync range.

As per Stefans quote above, it seems purely limited to fetching updates for surrounding players :o . Being controllable by script doesn't help me unless each server provides a way to control it locally...annoying!

At my res, Graal can barely get tiles in order without big black patches popping up so I guess crawling before walking.

I've already messed with this. It doesn't really have any effect on PC servers, save for making players unable to see each other.
