Any way to change the draw distance of shadows?

Shadows don't appear on walls/objects until you are noticeably within range of them.

I tried messing around with LOD and shadow density settings but that didn't do anything.

Is there any setting that does? IIRC, the HD versions of TFE and TSE didn't have this issue, with shadows that is. TSE had this issue with grass.

All right, I figured it out. It's a hidden setting that only changes when changing the CPU preset. Meaning if you choose the High or Ultra preset, and customize it setting everything to the lowest, you will still get proper shadows. But if you choose the Lowest preset and customize it setting everything to the highest quality, you will get really bad draw distance on the shadows.

I would imagine there is probably some command for it, whatever it may be. Maybe type "shadow" in the console and hit TAB to search for a possible relevant match??

From what I recall, "Shadow density" controls the draw-distance of shadows. It can be found under "Customize" for "GPU Speed".

It doesn't. It's the CPU setting.
