    Still, on DX9, load times are terrible. Takes like 20 seconds to bring the main menu up while in game...

    Recently played SoC with Autumn Aurora 2 and it was smooth as butter.

    LA runs on a late CS/ early CoP version of the engine and supports up to dx10.1
    Low perfomance might be caused by textures though. Have you checked vram usage?

    This is much different than those mods. This mod is remakes everything. There quite a few bugs and crashes but this is probably the best mod I've ever played.

    Drop sun shafts down to low, those are big fps killers. Lower the grass density and lower the view distance. I also used 4gb tool to enable LAA on the exe file. Also remove the exe from STALKER SOC and add it to Clear Sky in nvidia inspector.

    What lighting people using full dynamic or something makes the game awful bloomy

    It's beautiful...I'm in heaven...uh...I mean Cordon. They brought grass shadows back! Shadows in general are fantastic, I turn off sun shafts though, I've never cared for them since Clear Sky, makes everything look washed out. Make sure to turn off legs in user.ltx in the appdata folder (look for g_actor_body off) as it causes crashes and makes footsteps inaudible. Grass density, object detail and view distance will kill any CPU I imagine and they can be turned down quite far without making too much of a visual difference. Turning down the grass density also lets you see and enjoy the grass shadows, lol. So amazing to see every little shrub casting it's own shadow...did I mention I like grass shadows? Also, you can turn off the HUD with keypad minus. Time to get lost in the zone. :banana:

    Does look good, trying to play with bloom levels a bit, sofar so good got a few missions done in 1st zone no crashes fps seems ok not rock steady but playable.

    The zones art direction wise look amazing though nice details. Gives the game depth the old one seemed to lack with the lack of stuff.

    Get to the chopper! Don't know if it's a glitch but do you guys have an annoying chopper flying around every 30sec?

    Edit: Seems to have stopped after sleeping. BTW I wouldn't turn off sun rays they look amazing.

    THey seem way overdone though, i turned them to low and i still have "jesus" moments with the halos and auras. Crysis did god rays real well.

    Other than that game looks great its been playing great and dunno about the load times yea at first they were average for soc but a bit into the game now and load times seem way faster.

    Nope, boris tried to make it work with CS and CoP but didn't succeed.
