Mod for Minecraft 1.7.3 (and 1.6.6) that changes the way render distancen is calculated, so that it is many times greater than the original.

nI've now added a "lite" version as well that is essentially double view distance instead of "4x". See download links below.

nOriginal render distance (blocks):
nFar: 400
nNormal: 256
nSmall: 128
nTiny: 64

nRender distance with mod (blocks):
nFar: 2048
nNormal: 1536
nSmall: 1024
nTiny: 512

nRender distance with "lite" mod (blocks)
nFar: 1024
nNormal: 512
nSmall: 256
nTiny: 128

nComparions:

nThe actual distance seen is half of these values, because the values aren basically a "diameter" and the player is at the center. Higher values nwill GREATLY lower performance, because the increase in chunks isn't nlinear with the increase in view distance. If you have a view distance nof 512, for example, the game will load 1024 chunks (512/16 = 32, 32*32 =n 1024); if you have a view distance of 1024, the game will load 4096 nchunks, 4 times what it loaded with a view distance of 512. The max viewn distance will be loading 16,384 chunks, which is 16 times the amount nthat the smallest view distance loads, even though the "view distance" nvalue only increases by 4 times.

nNotes:
n> 64 bit OS and 64 bit Java probably required
n> If you're already using a 64 bit OS/Java your game crashes or the nscreen goes black often, follow these instructions to make Minecraft usen more memory:
http://www.buxville....ft-Memory-Usage
n> If you're looking for this mod, I assume you have a powerful ncomputer. I am testing/creating it on a computer with a Q9550 CPU at 3.7n ghz, 4 Gb of memory, and a GTX 470 GPU. It greatly reduces performance,n especially when using "far". I suggest to disable advanced OpenGL, then game runs smoother for me when using something higher than "tiny".
n> If anyone who is a better programmer than me is willing to make a ngui button to toggle the mod on/off, feel free to steal the mod and nre-release it.
n> Probably compatible with: HD texture pack patcher(tested, ncompatible), modloader, toomanyitems, most mods unrelated to graphics
n> Not compatible with: Other mods that rely on changes to nrenderglobal or entityrenderer classes. This includes optimine/optifog nand other mods that change view distance.
n> This mod is free, there is no license, you may do anything you wantn with it. I won't provide the source unless you contact me personally, nas there's really not much to it.

Could you update for 1.0.0? I'm getting a new PC in a week and it might actually be able to handle this rendering stuff. It would be really cool to try it out on 1.0! I understand if you discontinued it, but it would be really cool if you update.
