A new version V3 of this mod is available. The previous file needs to be removed from the Mods folder when using the new one.

A new version of this mod is available now which includes the two XML tuning files which are complementary to the two DATA files. Using the new file instead of the first one is mandatory! Throw the first version of this mod in the trash.

After the Oct.1st Update, these steps below are no longer required to get the game to read XML.

This mod removes the camera fade on sims, objects, trees (edit: this is apparently fruit trees on the active lot, not all the larger fir trees and the other large trees) and shrubberies when zooming in close. It doesn't work for ceiling lamps and columns for some reason, presumably these objects have their own settings in other files.

This mod uses the two DATA files and the two XML files named Renderer Tunable Fade Values.
Unzip the file somewhere and place the .package file in the Mods folder or subfolder (in the My Documents area).

Please please please update this mod. I cannot stand the fading!

I've tested this mod and it doesn't seem to work with Cats & Dogs (game version 1.36). When zooming in on a cat or dog in CAS, they disappear, so you can't sculpt/mold their faces. Hope this mod gets updated soon!

If what you want is a "no fade sims" then this is still working as of 1.40
But for pets, they still fade and you should install this after you customize your pet
Objects still fade aswell

Needs an update but still working for sims

the comments on here were pretty mixed about it working, since you could still zoom in on sims, but now with seasons this mod completely broke snow!

i hope this gets updated or remade soon
