    No Ambient Occlusion = HMBAO

    Sounds slow in latency where did you found this part of the code and can you enable it via the normal gameprofile.xml without needing to manipulate the defaultrenderconfig ?

    Are there any Render output Compares also in the Noise factor and if it reduces it ?

    I just replace the code so when you set the ambient occlusion off you will actually be setting it to HMBAO. I did this to make room for my other modified settings. what do you mean slow in latency!!?

    HMBAO = High Quality downsampled SSAO --> can't be the name for it i never saw this Acronym before it must be a Ubisoft developed thing like their MHBAO :)

    or are you mixing letters here ;)

    or is it Ubisofts MHBAO with a Aditional Downsampling step to reduce Noise, so it will look more like HBAO+ High but be much slower ?

    Not sure if this would even make sense for AMD user then :)

    MHBAO = Multi-Resolution horizon based ambient occlusion
    HBAO+ = Horizon based ambient occlusion the + stands for compute shader based and so faster in DX11 then a normal Shader approach and higher Quality.
    HMBAO = ????

    WOW.

    I did not think this mod could get any better but it has. Ultra everything with MSAA8x and still runs like a dream!

    Thank you Lunayah!

    that one is just a higher quality ssao that is downsampled but still not slower than HBAO high :):) look in the engine files so you see:)

    AWESOME!!
    I was curious to test with the settings u advised Lunayah : ultra textures and quality graphs settings @ high.
    oh boy! soooo soooo awesome! georgous! Even though I experienced tiny micro stuttters some time to time, performance is indeed amazing.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH Lunayah! u rock!! my favourite mod!

    I will i currently try to understand what lowers the latency a lot in pures setup he has some really crazy fast 460 GTX, 560 GTX result configs that doesn't look that bad :)

    also CoolerEra created one lite version based on it called Performance Test 2 also very awesome in render performance especially when using MHBAO and MSAA 2x :)

    MSAA 2x has heavy impact on Visuals compared to temp SMAA it renders a lot of results much sharper (some texture result really heavy compared to others) though @ 50% render speed impact.

    I guess your Temp SMAA 2x would combine this and also get the Sharper output for those textures, didn't analyzed it yet though but i guess it's SMAA T2x the same as used in Infamous Second Son (PS4) and Crysis 3 (PC) :)

    This is a odd request! Can you create a Windy_city.game xml for always Rain weather!

    The versions keep getting better and better, the coat physics, the weather effects, the distant lod on ultra, everything really looks great. Even with textures and everything else at ultra, I maintain over 30 fps at all times with smaa on running 2 gtx 670 4gb models in SLI Maybe it's because I have 4gb per card, but I'm finally seeing virtually no stuttering at all.

    always rain means that it rain all the time while keeping different levels of clouds, wind. lighting, and rain intensities

    always storm means that you will only experience very cloudy, lighting, and dense rain, and storm lighting all the time

    Shadow Fix for motorcycles

    Lunayah

    A big THANK YOU for all of the hard work you have done to make this game look absolutely beautiful! Not only that, it is amazing how you have improved the performance to run nearly perfect! I have tried nearly every mod that everyone has released for this game and your warm atmosphere with HQ is simply incredible and my #1 favorite!

    The tutorials have been very helpful, and you may have covered this topic before so I apologize in advance, but is there a way to fix/remove the rectangular shadow underneath when driving the motorcycles?

    Thanks - You are AWESOME!
