    RIFT and the 40player/NPC view limit

    Back when I previously played, there was a 40 player/NPC view limit. Meaning you could only load up to 40 players or NPCs at once. This causes plenty of problems on PvP realms. Was this issue ever resolved or is it still there?

    You can adjust this in the video settings iirc though I forget which setting it is.

    So, what's the current limitation? There's gotta be some cap if there's a slider.

    Why does knowing the cap matter exactly?

    Because if the cap is still low such as forty... I'm obviously not going to return if I can't see NPCs or a player trying to kill me?

    The slider could easily just be:

    40 --- 60 --- 80 --- 100 --- 150 --- 200 --- 300 --- ALL

    to clear up some misconceptions, there may indeed be a limit but there's no way its as low as 40 (looking at my experiences with volan, conquest, and multiraid GHRS as an example).


    Also, there is no option to change this in video settings in any way shape or form however you can bind a key to 'hide all other players' which i assume is primarily for the taking of screenshots
