What do "DistanceScale=" in .ini actually do?

    So I've seen many people sharing their UserOptions.ini settings and having these additional three lines.
    Does anyone know what is it these settings actually change in-game?
    Do they alter anything if my Effects and Particles are at Low?
    What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

    They control how far you can see things like grass, smoke particles, ESF contrails, tracers, etc. Having them at 2.0 means you'll see them twice as far compared to the default. However, I'm not 100% sure if these actually do anything. Wish there was a wiki for hidden/non-default INI entries.
