Its the Entity.ROI value in the ini, that is doubled from its default 4000

; ROI sphere is used to process all dynamic entities within range.
;Entity.ROI - 0.01=min, FarClippingPlane=max, 4000.0=default
;Automatically clamped to FarClippingPlane if bigger
Entity.ROI=8000.0
So not only are the NPCs/monsters spawned at double the distance, but their AI is processed as well…

Other than that I do not believe spawn points have changed. BTW Sometimes you will find one of the rebel camps outside Montera engaged with an Orc Patrol (coming all the way from Faring I believe) but that is something that could happen in the vanilla game too. The doubled roi value makes it more probable I imagine….

If I only could do one tweak, it would be this and pushing vegetation a bit beyond that threshold (9500 would do it iirc) so it appears more natural (and indeed have done so at my last replay). It can be sort of a mixed blessing though sometimes, as you noted…
