    To those whining about "another WD thread" - Shut up guys!

    If you want to complain, write to Ubisoft. Its their fault that they released an unfinished game with tons of problems and lack of E3 features. If they had released a finished product, we wouldn't have to start these threads in the first place. Everyone would just play the game and enjoy it. Then we'd maybe have one thread for game discussion.

    Although I'm glad that some forum users take their time in modding the game to look what it should look like when it went gold, it's really sad that they have to do it in the first place. Why must we QA the game? It's not our job, we pay for a finished product.

    Ubisoft deserves a fist up their *ss, end of story.

    I don't believe you :eek:neeye:

    Have you really edited your GameProfile.xml to look
    like this:
    [​IMG]

    Than you should have a performance hit of about 50% less FPS.

    Well, after playing for a while, wind the wind did actually pick up so it's there but it happens very rarely and it's very mild. This is supposed to be the Windy City afterall, so it's very unnatural. Plus, i've played for over half an hour, no rain. So it seems the weather effects are too toned down and since Watch Dogs looks best in the rain, it seems like a step backwards from the vanilla version. Also, appart from the headlight shadows and bokeh dof I see no other improvement over vanilla or they are so subtle that it's unnoticeable.

    It didnt take a hit at all, still runs 40+fps for me. No stutter, GPU usage is constant.

    You guys can edit the XML to make it windier, at least windier for the trees and vegetation
    Here is my High settings XML, made the wind commands bold

    You can really get the trees blowing around nicely, and much more active grass blowing in the wind.

    Yep.

    Mind you I clamp my fps at 30.


    On topic, I like this version with the 0.8 colorgrading. It's dark, but I have a sweetfx setup that lifts the shadows a bit. The bloom seems tighter, not all over the place. Headlights still flicker but it's livable. Reflections, especially on cars seem better. Although my main gripe is the cars have this weird and awful looking patterned striping. I don't know if it's a shadow issue, or a reflection issue, or both fighting each other. I did notice a building that had lighting that was nuclear. Believe it was an electronics skyscraper near navy pier. That might be normal, but never noticed it before.

    Oh wind is working fine on my end.

    Alpha to cover and SSAA have no effect. The engine does not support them!

    HA, I actually did it. I found this tutorial which helpet me with Disrupt:

    http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=390238

    I unpacked my TheWorse mod v0.8 (which I had merged with the Ubisoft-patch before), unpacked your mod, took your windy_city.game.xml and replaced TheWorse windy_city.game.xml with it. Packed it, works. :)

    "Would you like to know more?"

    Yes indeed. :D If I wanted your modification of the draw distance, which file should I look for in your patch.dat? And would it help to add your modified textures in terms of fixing some shadow / lighting artifacts?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can edit Terrain Detail View Distance in GamerProfile.xml
    Edit the line TerrainDetailViewDistance="650" and make it lower or higher to see details further away or make them only load when you get closer, this is good if you want to optimize or just make detail easier to see in long range views.
    Keep in mind if you put this value to low it will make lots of texture pop in, I find the sweet spot is between 600-650 for better performance without much pop in.

    Good work :)

    Would make sense to add Watch Dogs into the thread title, don't want any poor soul thinking this isn't a Watch Dogs thread and accidentally stepping into it and having their life ruined (as apparently having a few active Watch Dogs threads is ruining a few whiny people's lives!) :)

    Tested, and I can honestly say that this is the best version of the mod yet. Performance is great, no stutter for me whatsoever. This is with Ultra textures (haven't tested high) 1080p, temporal SMAA, the rest maxed.

    Beware that nights are very realistically dark with this sweetfx preset. I stepped outside my hideout somewhere outside the city and it was pitch black. a faint shimmering of a car nearby, went to it and after starting up the car the lights where very realistic. Really nice.

    And yes, the trees are fine.
