I was excited to hear that the LOD radius was increased to over 50 miles with the release of v2.2; however, I dont' see any difference when I increase the LOD Radius in the Prepar3D CFG file. Is this an issue that needs to be addressed? With my photoreal scenery, I only see extremely detailed scenery directly under my aircraft.

I believe the difference can bee seen on distant mountains isn't an adjustable settings.

There was an issue where the LOD for the distant terrain was not being shown correctly but has now been fixed.

As the textures from Photo scenery are place on top of this I presume all is as it should be for you?

I read an article about different resolution settings today. I changed my resolution to: 2560 X 1400. I also downloaded the new Nvidia driver: 337.88. The following screenshot was taken from McGhee Tyson Airport in Tennessee. It appears this greatly increased my LOD radius for my photoreal scenery.
