    I will do different XML for AMD, Nvidia and texturing quality.

    Im testing shading as well, since i was doing this in the past its just i wanted to get the game peformance fixed as well other bugs before starting to add shading, because that will eat performance, the 3.0 test seems to be good in terms of performance and quality overall for most computers. So next time test will be better.

    And don't forget to put an option using the SSAOQuality="hmssao" and AntiAliasingQuality="temporalsmaa".

    These options will already help a lot in the overall performance in any rig. Thanks, mate!

    What do you change to reduce texture quality to medium or high? Us Amd users still hoping for a patch to come out and fix some stuff. With textures on ultra it's barely playable.

    Glad the mod developer is going to made different versions for Nvidia and Amd. :)

    Don't listen to those damn trolls or haters. You're contributing to a lot of users. Even though the result will end up false or true in the end, you still did a good job.

    Gogo.

    Just go to display menu in the game option menu, and change the texture to medium.

    Thanks i will update today at night when i have time to keep working on this.

    And sorry if i was "rude" with the user ( banned ) TheWorse , that took credit from me after chasing me to work with me, he made a thread with all my findings and effort from weeks , copy pasted everything and added a bloom.lib file to my findings, and he now says is all made by him. If i pointed that is because i dont like people chasing me everywhere and when i accept to work with the guy, he refuses and makes an own thread saying he did all i did in 18 hours.

    I wanted to explain this as the mod "TheWorse" is a banned user that faked information, and now fakes a mod saying is all made by him.

    I will keep working on this, just keep in mind i wont be involved in all that TheWorse insult.

    That a game bug and it happens in some configs. I will do new versions so you can check which works the best for your system.

    I'm gonna say what I said earlier, but come on you can't say that.

    Kad you did a great job, people saying otherwise are lying to themselves, but it is also true that TheWorse did an amazing job on his own. There is nothing simple in what he did with the volumetric light and the dynamics shadows.

    Just keep the good work, but don't go on this "me, me, me road". Eventually other people might use your discoveries to improve the game even more without giving you any credits. Technically what you guys are doing is tweaking, not modding, so you don't own those tweaks.

    Of course it doesn't stop you from being respectful toward each other.

    Thats perfecty cool, he inserted the bloom.lib file with some hex changes to my research, and he says its all made by him.

    The bloom lib is fine, but the problem is this guy is a banned user for trolling and faking, and now makes a thread calling his mod totally made by him. And thats an insult. Even worse when he calls his thread "after hours of testing" like everything i did was so easy and simple, it took me weeks to find out everything correctly and this guy attempts to another people effort and time, taking all the credit, and making it look "so easy" .

    This TheWorse user has been banned before, he saw all my files and just changed values, added the bloom.lib with hex changes and called everything "his mod and research in 18 hours" .

    All explained.

    Everyone who complains about FPS drop here is key setting to tweak their own XML because KADZAI didnt publish this ( dont know why ) so here is the key FPS killer values

    ParaboloidReflectionTextureSize="XXXX" >> Vanilla ULTRA is 1024 i wil keep that around 1500 for performance/visual

    ShadowMapSize="XXXX" >> ULTRA vanilla shadows value is 4096 .. keep that for P/V ratio

    CascadedShadowMapSize="XXXX" >> ULTRA vanilla shadows value is 4096 .. keep that for P/V ratio

    RainShadowMapSize="XXXX" ULTRA value is 512 i will put that to 1024 for P/V ratio

    StaticShadowMapSize="XXXX" ULTRA value is 512 i will put that to 1024 for P/V ratio

    WaterNextGenQuality="XXXX" ULTRA value is 1024 keep that for P/V ratio

    (Water) ReflectionTextureSizeX="XXXX" ULTRA value is 1024 keep that for P/V ratio

    (Water) ReflectionTextureSizeY="XXXX" ULTRA value is 1024 keep that for P/V ratio

    DetailDistanceScaleModifier="XX" ULTRA vaule is 1.0 max to 0.9 for P/V ratio
    LodScale="XX" ULTRA vaule is 0.8 max to 0.73 for P/V ratio
    KillLodScale="XX" ULTRA vaule is 0.8 max to 0.73 for P/V ratio
    BuildingKillLodScale="XX" ULTRA vaule is 0.8 max to 0.73 for P/V
    ClustersLodScale="XX" ULTRA vaule is 1.0 max to 0.8 for P/V ratio
    RealTreesLodScale="XX" ULTRA vaule is 1.0 max to 0.8 for P/V
    TerrainLodScale="XX" ULTRA vaule is 1.0 i will keep that for P/V ratio

    MaxDecalCount="XXX" ULTRA vaule is 400 P/V ratio dont tested

    MaxDecalCountPerType="XX" ULTRA vaule is 75 P/V ratio dont tested

    I could go on but i pointed out the most FPS killer settings. My personal opinion on this are i will pretty much keep LOD on ultra settings you get a little visual for big cost of FPS, little bumb up Reflection textures and maybe shadow but this is pretty much what kadzait XML do not much in regular day because his confing mainly changes rain splashes and such settings. I hope it helped to somebody to tweak his XML 4.0 or whatever.

    Thanks for the help but thats actually all wrong , since i did publish it and people here 99% got better performance. You are the only person in the entire world that is arguin with my mod. You should look for a professional help, shrink would be good.

    And i said im going to release more stuff, added shading as well ( which TheWorse, took from me ) .

    Please do not do the same as before, you will end bad at Guru3D.

    Just wanted to confirm that this mod does improve the graphics AND performance at the same time. Not sure how you did it but it's awesome.

    People saying they can't see a difference or that it does nothing might just be blind, ignore them.

    However, I also feel that TheWorse's mod is great too, the bloom looks great, and the upcoming headlight shadows look good too. I understand that he most likely did just copy your tweaks and add to it, but honestly you just copied Ubisoft's tweaks and added to it if you think about it.

    Neither of you own the tweaks you are doing, and so if he doesn't want to give you credit (Even though I personally would) then just ignore him. But just know we as a community are thankful for you guys!

    I can't believe how just some setting/shader tweaks can make this game look so much better :banana:

    In the Laptop with a 780M the performance it's a little better than the v2.0, but in desktop, the improve with this mod (v3.0) it's just huge.

    Without mod, the game it's almost unplayable, FPS drops to 20-25 when you drive, now 60FPS (with a little drops to 50-55) and V-Sync activated.

    Man, keep it up ;)
