SurrounDead – How to Improve Graphics

Guide to Improve Graphics

I have greatly improved the graphics in a few points:

Grass, foliage and ground cutter no longer pop up. Fixed popping trees and bushes. Improved sky colors and cloud resolution optimized. Improved shadows, improved screen space reflections, optimized color in general. Ui scale adjusted (75%) and can be scaled to a different size as desired. Performance and lighting optimized and improved.

I have tested the performance and it should run very well on all current 3-series gpus, I have no fps drops.

  • Save and closed.

If you don’t see the appData folder, you have to activate advanced folder options: show all in the windows settings.

Have fun with the new graphics.
