    God rays make some difference when set to Ultra, but there is almost no difference in Low vs High (and very little visual difference anyways) for me.

    Only thing that seems to make a difference is shadow draw distance and even at Medium (3000) it drops hard in too many places. Tested it with custom ini settings down to 1000 and FPS never drops below 60 outside of odd stutter but its way too ugly to consider playing.

    Pushing Gamebryo to its limits I guess.

    Same here. Given up till it gets fixed. When it drops just a few frames, its like no other game, its just slo-mo.

    Painkiller would do that as well.
    People Can Fly's Pain Engine would go into a slowmo/bullet time effect when the frame rate bottomed out.

    It was almost more fun playing the game like that at times... just because of how odd it was.

    There's a minor difference in filtering as far as I can tell, there's a console command you can use (gr) to tweak the god-ray settings a bit and make easier comparisons in-game. :)

    The more useful commands would be:

    gr - shows list of available cvars.
    gr info - displays god-ray info on what settings are currently used.
    gr quality 0 - 2 - sets god-ray quality, I only really notice a minor difference in filtering, a value of 3 also works to improve filtering even further but it seems to have minor graphical glitches too so I wouldn't use it.
    gr fog 0 - 1 - toggles Nvidia fog, doesn't work and if you set it to 1 the fog effects all but disappear, mostly noticeable during the white foggy weather condition.

    There's other commands too. :)

    cl - toggle character lighting.
    (cl on or cl off to enable and disable it, enabled by default, there's also cl rim to set the strength of the effect with 0.02 being default, don't think there's a way to save the config but I like 0.01 better or even 0.005.)

    sr (or was it ssr?) - toggle screen-space reflections.
    (Has some settings but they don't seem to do anything, just typing sr by itself toggles them on and off.)

    taa - toggles temporal aa or displays available settings.
    (taa on - off to enable and disable it, has a number of settings to adjust strength and stuff like sharpening and blurriness, also has various ini variables so you could make the settings more permanent.)

    ssao - toggles screen space ambient occlusion, there's a hbao command as well for hbao+ but it's non-functional.
    (Has some settings as well.)

    sao - toggles scalable ambience obscurance and various settings for that.

    fxaa - toggles fxaa settings.


    There's some others as well but I don't remember all of them at the moment.

    It's too early, 6 months from now, you will have them in all shapes and sizes (just check skyrim nexus lol). :giggle2:

    Bit too early for mesh mods, even for female characters it'll be a while before you get actual 3D nipples and more importantly a smoother actual body mesh with more realistic proportions. :D
    (With various underwear and non-underwear versions probably popping up too.)

    EDIT: But yeah female only outfits and body mods tend to be the more popular.

    last night i was just for the first time in the around URBAN areas and performance was horrible. 4.2 GHZ CPU. 16 GB ram and that my GPU. gosh. who did made this game this way? how is it on consoles anyway?

    i must decrease some settings but which? any advices? BOKEH? what is it anyway?

    GEFORCE utility of nvidia says set more stuff to medium according to my system. this is not fair.

    Jonas,

    How do you adjust the weapon size/hand distance? Eg, in doom 3, g_gunX, Y, Z lets you move the arms/weapon up, down, left, right back and fowards.

    The general fov is fine, but the gun size is killing me. Or is it all tied to just fov cmd?:http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/588/?

    i sometimes get the occasional dip is fps. most of the time it's 60fps but there are spotty areas where the performance just drops. i have everything set to max except shadow distance and godrays to high. seems to help. the lowest fps it would dip into the 40s. not sure what causes this enormous ~20fps drop but this game engine has some issues.

    fyi, the game's auto detect settings set everything to max for me. so in theory it shouldn't have performance issues correct? lol

    setini "fDefault1stPersonFOV*:*Display" 75 75
    setini "fDefaultWorldFOV*:*Display" 65 65
    (Try what values you think would be good, I simply increased both by 10 but shown here is the default values oh and remove **, it's just there to avoid : and D becoming a smiley when next to one another.)

    First one covers first person FOV, second one covers third person FOV, the above commands allows you to scale them independently of the "FOV" console command and by entering the value twice you ensure it does not revert back to default after you close the console window. :)

    If you don't want to use the console you could just add them to Fallout4.ini at C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\My Games\Fallout4 like this:

    [Display]
    fDefault1stPersonFOV=85.0000
    fDefaultWorldFOV=75.0000

    (Since it's a Fallout4.ini command and not a Fallout4Prefs.ini command you should be able to override it by adding it to Fallout4Custom.ini instead if you want, it should work to override nearly any cvar in Fallout4.ini but it won't work for Fallout4Prefs.ini - Here's a default value version of both those ini files generated via the "saveini" console command. - http://forum.step-project.com/topic/9309-fallout-4-default-values-for-all-valid-ini-settings/ )


    EDIT: To truly alter the gun independently of the field-of-view settings I believe we need the script extender again (WIP - http://forums.bethsoft.com/topic/1544542-wipz-fallout-4-script-extender-f4se/ ) to do something like this:

    Fantastic! Thanks Jonas, much appreciated:)

    Also, not sure if posted: Fallout 4 - Texture Optimization Project
    [​IMG]

    And this too: bForceIgnoreSmoothness=1, will simply change your lighting quality to medium and does not seem to effect your mouse like it did in Skyrim.

    Yeah ForceIgnoreSmoothness is related to visuals, if you open low.ini in the Fallout4 Steam folder you'll see it's set to 1 there, opening the ini files for medium, high or ultra and it'll be set to 0 so it's something with the visuals.

    ok will try


    yeah mostly 72 FPS on me. i use 144 HZ monitor and VSYNC on. all max. but sometimes don't know why. it dips to 20 fps then return to normal.

    game needs patching. but for now i will lower some stuff. GOD RAYS may be a start point. BOKEH? why not it?

    I'm really confused why people here with far more powerful rigs than mine are complaining about performance? I play at 1080p default ultra settings (with godrays set to low instead), vsync on and I get minimum 50fps, even in urban areas which seems to be the main cause of peoples concerns. Very confusing to me.

    I would however appreciate a patch for game-breaking bugs: terminals for me are always a bit of a "do I/Don't I" as I've been stuck in a few situations (6 times, so far) where trying to open a terminal my character closes in but then just stares at it, no keyboard response. Pip boy is another time when I've entered it and cannot get back out (levelling up then becomes a scary prospect) and the building mechanic is just awful. Erecting walls, no problem, want one at 90 degrees to the last one? Tough luck. I placed a bed in one "room" I had built and it pinged off into space, never to return. Dogmeat also needs a "Get the &%*^ out of my way" command.
