I've been struggling with these two settings for a long time. I have maxed everything out and I'm even running Natural ENBuzz. But these two settings, I can just never figure out. What the hell do they do? How do you tweak them? What is the best area in the game to tweak them?
I've looked at the stickied FAQ, but it seems completely wrong. View Distance doesn't affect just cars and vehicles, Detail Distance doesn't affect just trash and trees. They both affect the same things. Depending on what View or Detail is set to, is how much the other will affect.
Here's an example: I can have View Distance at 30, and when playing with the Detail Distance I'll start to see a trash can when I have it around 40.
But I can also have Detail Distance at 80, and when playing with View Distance if I put it at say 15, I'll start to see that trash can.
So what you see, depends on BOTH settings. They both rely on each other. But I don't know how exactly.
AMD FX6300 @ 3.5Ghz 6-Cores
Sapphire HD 7870 Ghz Edition 2GB
Everything is on High or Very High (depending on how high the setting goes)
Vehicle Density is at 100
For now, I have View Distance at 21 and Detail Distance at 10 (the console settings)
Can someone provide a good explanation on these two? Is there a guide on how to tweak them?
