For those having problem of invisible terrain on zoom out on the newer Parkitect builds: Load a map, press P to open the camera config and move the distance slider or cick the default settings button. Looks like anything changed it to very low after the update

Can you update this mod to work with Alpha 13?

The max distance is initially set to 100x100x100 but you can change this in the code. Go to the mods folder and find the better perspective folder. Open up BetterPerspectiveCamera.cs. A C# IDE such as Visual Studio is preferable, but notepad should work fine. Go down to where maxBounds is defined ( MaxBounds = new Vector3(100, 100, 100);) and change it from 100x100x100 to whatever you'd like. Make sure to recompile the mod in the nexus client.

Two issues I've noticed on the latest update.

  1. Movement is limited to 100X100 even on a bigger map
  2. Since grass tile effects like flowers and little plants are never stopped rendering at a distance, a bigger world size GREATLY reduces fps.

For both of these you can start up the scenario editor and set the size to 500X500.

If you use this mod in Alpha 3, go get the fix for the cloud shadows...your life will again be serene +10 to H-pops.

@MikeThinks I am working on a update, or I will make a separate mod to disable the clouds

Any easy way to update this to work with A1.3 without the blocky smog effect we are seeing now? Most important mod in the game is now borked

Something needs to be updated. It doesn't work anymore, and when I try to update it gives a message of 'Failed: Object reference not set to an instance of an object'.

I love this! I never played RCT1-2, I only played 3, so this helps a lot! One thing I would like though, is the Map view, like how it is with the isometric camera. We should be able to see a top view of our park, and we can't achieve that by rotating the camera
