Visibility ranges

I am making a lot of performance enhancements for 1.15. One of them is visibility range setting. Long overdue:

The game is quite smooth on low range when playing on 1st gen phones. It makes sense especially if you spend most of your time underground, because then all this rendering distance goes to waste anyway.

    Wow kaalus that fog looks great and distance setting will definatly help us 1st Gen. Thank you for all the hard work so far, was just wondering how you implemented the fog, is it using the generator or layered objects? Amazed how smooth it looks.

    I have 1.14 but the grass will sometimes take out my door or glass block and replace it with grass.

      Is it grass or tall grass (i.e. the plant as opposed to the block) which destroys your stuff?
