    At least I pay attention to important details.

    I'm criticizing his work because he doesn't answer what he's tweaking to get better performance. How about helping each other?

    I'm answering anyway. This topic should be called Kadzait24 Watch Dogs MOD (enter only if you're going to love it).

    EDIT:I just looked and there even closer maybe 5 minutes apart there pretty much spot on ,hope I do not have to trace the shadows I am talking about,I did put a big red circle around the ones in vanilla.

    LOL Yes different times and are around 5 mins apart
    ..Well woke up at 9 am,ran over to the spot,looked on the clock.

    The screen shots are to show kadzait24.That on his mod shadow difference from vanilla,and which he might not have seen or noticed trying to rush out the mods.
    Also you can run and say look at the ground and see the shadow radius Is not very large,but still awesome mod and looks good.
    kadzait24 needs people to help him make the mod perfect.

    There's other interesting thing, in the vanilla picture the gpu usage is much lower than with kad's mod. Unless it's some bizarre spike, crossfire/sli seems to be better with the mod. And if this can be achieved by changing the quality of certain graphical elements something strange is happening.

    Changed picture to show its same TOD,and Kadzait24 has more usage,there is more going on to tax the GPU'S a little more.

    Well I have 580gtx and I got increasing FPS (around 10) as well (medium textures). Maybe it's CPU related. I didn't notice the shadow casting problem, you kept the shadow settings on "high" right?

    If I understand well, what you are showing here is the lod of the shadows that has been decreased causing them to pops up when you get closer right? Since I can say for sure that the long distance lod has been downgrade slightly (this is barely noticeable, but that is what makes the game runs better), maybe this is related.

    Again be sure you didn't put the shadow setting on ultra, I remember Kad saying it would cause glitches.

    The only difference is that in the first image, the sun is closer to being behind the buildings than it is in the second image. That is what gives the appearance of more shadows in the first image. It has nothing to do with the mod. The sun is going from one side of the map to the other.

    Do you not know how light and shadows work!

    Yes my shadows are on ultra I will set shadows to high and check again.Thanks for the tip.

    Great job, thanks for the upload, but is there any way to get night look as dark as it did before, after the mod blackout makes everything look bright like day only without the lights? Oh and by the way i got more stable performance i would say 1-2 fps lower on my gtx 670 but overall i lost stuttering for most part which is really awesome

    If anyone want to fixed blackout,you can decrease the LightProbesMinAmbient value.
