ever since the news Patch, yes there was better performance, buyt why now do I see the grass pop up at a distance? its very ugly and annoying, before the patch everything was just there....
or am I wrong about what I saw??
I didn't make it!
Well if you rendered all the grass in the view you would be surprised how much it would impact the fps. I tried increasing the range once just a little and it dropped 5 fps. If you want to experiment the cvar I believe is "e_view_dist_ratio_vegetation[COLOR=black]", info on how to use it is in this thread: http://forums.filefront.com/crysis-general-discussion/340685-crysis-real-graphics.html
Its probably been this way the entire time but you didn't notice it at first. [/COLOR]
