As I going far away from an object lit by the sun, the shadow start to dissapearing as see in pic
when I'm close to the object the shadow is visible

But far from the object the shadow start to dissapear visible on the right side of the white building ,

how could I increase the max distance from the camera to still seeing the shadow ,

Hi,

You can change the distance that certain shadows get rendered by using the CVar "e_GsmRange".
