What a Difference a Draw Makes

In SecondLife, "draw distance" sets how far away from your avatar position your viewer will draw objects. If you set draw distance to 100, then it draws all objects and avatars within 100 meters of your avatar, if you set it at 1000, then it draws all objects and avatars within 1000 meters of your avatar.

Increasing draw distance is a great way to make Secondlife look more interesting and realistic. There is a drawback, however, because the higher you set your draw distance, the longer it takes your computer to render SecondLife and can cause serious lag.
