What is this mod?

I created a Watch_Dogs E3 Mod that strives to bring the best gaming experience to players of Watch_Dogs.
Although still in its beta stages, the mod has already improved the graphics of the game by a substantial amount.
Including features such as an improved wind and fog system, the mod's goal is to provide gamers the original E3 2012 experience of Watch_Dogs.


Screenshots

None of these screenshots contain color-grading programs such as SweetFX.

 Click to show spoiler



Please note that screenshots may not accurately represent the first full version; the mod is still a work in progress.
Version 0.2 Screenshots are here!

@Kadzait24 will you include a full break down on changes to the XML? compared to the Stock pre-sets would be useful for our self's if we want to try and tweak some setting to fine tune it to our own systems.

Please don't include any cheats in your work: There is enough cheating going on in the game already without you making it even more easily accessible.

Cheating is for single player only, right? It's not at the expense of anyone else

Nice to have the thread back Kadzait, the modding is great, hope to see more soon!

Single player and multiplayer is sort-of integrated in this game so people can use cheats in multi unfortunately

Wow, that is pretty horrible. They didn't think that through
Luckily I don't play these games for the multi-player anyways hehe.

Hello kadzait, thx for your work so far. Even though the mod 2.0 beta is hard on the system it made the game look much better. When i bought the game i was also very dissapointed about the graphics especially in the daytime, but your beta mod already made it look much better. Thank you for your time and effort so far and looking forward to see the next mod.

I'm really glad you have been allowed to open a new thread. I really hope the mods will keep this thread as clean as possible, it would be really nice.

I'm pretty sure all the gamers here can't wait to get their hands on your work.
