    Which version of my DOF did you used? I've released v1.3 with Machine4578's zoomed out camera, the one that Marduk is using. In previous versions there was old Yizan's camera.
    Have you tried Warpy's DOF?

    amazing mod Essenthy, but please what files I need to delete from the mod Essenthy, to keep the sidewalks of mod Marduk when it is dry (no reflection from dry)?

    Screenshots Essenthy mod: dry

    Anyone managed to get puddles to splash when Aiden walks or drives through them?

    Atm it's as if they are not really there, no reaction when stepping or driving through them

    Yes I tried it but removed it because of reflections when dry. But it's wonderful when wet !

    @genstar :

    no sorry i cant make them dry :(, actually i just tried to emulate the reflection from 2012 demo, but its not the same and it look weird when dry at day

    what i noticed after trying to get that reflection is that the e3 2012 reflection is the same as in vanilla, the only main difference is the distance at wich the reflection is aparent , look at this

    [​IMG]

    this distance at wich the reflection appear is ridiculous, and some of it have bloom ( wich dosnt appear in vanilla ), so to get that reflection we need to find the setting for the distance at wich the reflection appear

    Ah, i see. I have now tried your updated Dof mod and here is some feedback ;)
    1: does not zoom out enough, should be as the camera in Merged mod but centered
    2: Not enough Dof, maybe just a little bit more dynamic Dof and it would be perfect
    3: No Bokeh? why not add that with the higher dynamic Dof

    Thanks, hope i did not come accross wrong, was just trying to improve your mod
    ;)

    ok... but even so good work Essenth.

    you can also see in tthe pic
    - the streaming water of the left side of the roof
    - the rain streak s are longer than vanilla (will watch the vid and take a look at the falling speed)

    I would like to know what do i need to download to have the full mod working without the need to use custom textures, just the mod itself with all the needed effects + the new patch files.

    Reflection distance can be increased in "defaultrenderconfig.xml"!
    In <ParaboloidReflection> section find this parameter:

    ParaboloidReflectionCullingProjectionScale="0.05"

    "0.05" is the vanilla value on "Ultra". Increasing it to "0.2" will do the job without any performance hit. When I was testing this I noticed that the lamps reflections of some light poles in other areas aside from The Loop is still appearing at close distance. I tried to increase it to "0.8" and the distance become farther and I didn't notice performance drop at first. But when I started the police chase with helicopter at night with 3-5 cop cars on the screen I got huge FPS drops.
