I DIDN'T MAKE THIS MOD. The author is darkm1. I'm just reuploading it because the original uploader deleted it and I think it's a great mod, I was desperately trying to find something like this and I feel a lot of people will appreciate it.
The mod just removes the view distance fog. It seems it doesn't work for the rainy planets, though, and since I don't know how to mod I can't update or fix it. Hope someone with modding knowledge can fix it somehow.
Will keep it for visibility unless the mod author asks me to remove it
