    Looks like your scene is very large. Make sure that things are roughly to scale and that one Unity unit is about one meter.

    You can increase the shadow distance, but scales that are very inaccurate can lead to a myriad of problems as all the engine's systems assume that one unit is one meter.

    Please make sure the scale is correct instead. It'll resolve the issue.
    If you still need to increase shadow distance after that, you can look that up.

    If that is the case, it makes no sense, people should be able to create object with any scale they want and keep a proportional shadow
