Running backwards is enabled
Game engine is updated by one generation. So it’s important to check if everything is working as before. Please let me know if you would find something strange.
Vegetation rendering was replaced with new system in each map which uses instanced rendering and it will help eliminate
hiccups when building grass patches around player.
There are new graphics options for Grass Density, Vegetation Distance, Additional Tree Distance, Additional Billboard Distance. Which are adjusted automaticlaly with graphics preset slider. But you can still override them manually.
You can now adjust grass density dynamically. 100 is really only for ultra settings.
75 is nice and peformant. But if you have lower graphics you can lower it down to get much better performance.
Is the visible range for grass and trees.
Additional Tree Distance
Is added to the Vegetation Distance. It will render Trees as meshes in this additional Range.
