[1.8.3] How to Change Serverside Viewdistance ?

Hey guys,

I am probably overlooking a thread here that would work for 1.8.3 but is there an easy way for me to change the viewdistance for everyone on the server from 1600m to 1200m ?

It probably doesn't give much but I wanted to see if it would improve performance for people across the board.

I have seen this link , but am not quiet sure what to do with it

Thank you.

in your mission.pbo >> init.sqf

put somewhere near the end:
setviewdistance 1200;
or maybe it could work when you put it in your server.pbo >> server_monitor.sqf before the last };

setviewdistance 1200;

I put it in init.sqf underneath the call compile chunk

call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "dayz_code\init\compiles.sqf";
progressLoadingScreen 0.2;
call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "\z\addons\dayz_code\system\BIS_Effects\init.sqf";
progressLoadingScreen 0.25;
initialized = true;
