Recommended Posts

I´m really interested to see how this track looks on my screen with maxed out gfx settings... Still long 2 weeks... :classic_sleep:

Wouldn't it be great if Codies let us tweak these settings in xml files again like in so many past titles? 🤷‍♂️

I dont want to sound like a troll but these trees look directly from PS2 era :classic_ohmy: :classic_unsure:. Codemasters should seriously do something about it.. I prefer the game to get a newer delay and deliver us something really good instead of it.. (talking about demo -derby , drift , more content and overall better graphics)

New video from Shirrako

Nice trees (holy f@ck!), bad lightning and short LOD...

The hope:

It seems it needs a HD texture pack for cars like GRID Autosport: 🤔

Wow it shows what a difference a good video capture in 4k 60fps makes. Compared to most of the videos in this thread. Shanghai looks a good track to race on and some great scenery and crowd.

This video assured me that trees had different quality models. So i guess trees option will be back into graphics settings. And global illumination as well.

Bad LOD is not a problem, because it's easy to fix by configuring setting files.

So now the only problem left - reflections on the road.

***** Christ, maybe I even install Win10 after all! :classic_laugh:

PS. Lol, is "J.e.s.u.s" a bad world in England??

There are very few trees in this track. Each track has its own trees. We haven't seen anything that points to that. 🤷‍♂️

You are asuming too much here. This is a new game, with a new EGO engine version, DX12 only. Don't just assume they're gonna let you edit xml files like in past titles. That era is gone. The FFB xml was editable/moddable in past Codemasters titles, and that's how we got much improved FFB from modders. It is not anymore in Dirt Rally 2, where we got an horrible FFB and Codemasters took months to fix it a bit...

There are still a lot more problems than that. The easiest to fix would be Eye Adaptation/Automatic Exposure, but they may not even fix that.

I know, it's ridiculous. I can't even write my own real name in this forum. Jeeezz... 😂

This thread is silly.  Complaining about trees in a fast paced racing game?  Anyways I can’t wait to play it.

So that's your useful contribution to a graphics discussion thread. Wow.
Have you really read the full thread?

I forgot how good Grid AutoSport Looks, I just played some after seeing those videos above. This still looks great but you can see the improvements made with the new grid especially the lighting.

Are you shure?

This is shadowed place in Autosport:

This is shadowed place in GRID 2019:

I'd rather say there is no lightning at all.

I don't see an issue tbh. It's exactly that - shadowed.

I think he means GRID 2019 is too dark. At some shadowed places you can't see sh|t.

Those are from Replay and seem to look good at that shots/angles, but during gameplay, LOD switch still can be seen pretty near camera and with a very different volume/outline from one LOD level to the next:

Just look at the trees on the left side of the track


 isn't it distracting how they switch LOD that near and obvious? and this is with rain all over the screen masking it...
