    Default Camera Max Distance

    Tired of only being able look only 30 meters from behind your character?

    Care to see whats around the corner before tempting fate?!?!?

    Do you want a true birds-eye view of the SWTOR world??????

    WELL, DO YOU?!?

    Can't do that using the puny slider in the preferences menu, but I can show you how to adjust it "another way" if you get my drift.

    I have Windows 7, but I'm sure you'll be able to find using similar methods.

    Go to: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\SWTOR\swtor\settin gs

    In this folder you'll find "AccountName_Account"

    Now edit this file and look for Controls_CameraMaxDistance = #

    Put any number higher than whats already there and you'll be able to zoom out quite a bit. For mine I have it set to 50.

    Just FYI.
