1) Visuals and Graphics
- 60% larger view distance in all maps maps, maintaining each map individual Fog signature
- All maps with much better Hi-Resolution 2048MB (Finest possible quality) Lighting with SoftShadows, original maps have an 512MB texture for object lighting and Low-Res shadows for terrains, that makes it much less realistic and whith far worse graphics in general.
- Much better Static Objects details, all static objects keeps the highest Level of Detail (LOD) no matter what. Needs a 1GB+ VRAM Card, capable of running the game at high settings except for AA filtering.
- New color palette, with more realistic look and not as bright and washed as the original one.

- Custom Ai file fully compatible with Vanilla Official servers, for large co-op game modes with up to 64 Players
3) Performance & Fixes
- Fixed flickering on bridges and Airstrips, fixed detail flickering on rocky surfaces
- Disabled LOD switching for objects with complex geometries, this can reduce lag and stuttering at expense of using more video memory (1GB+ VRAM Recommended)
- Reduced vegetation and gravel being rendered in places no one will ever see, such as under big static objects or areas out of combat bounds
- Fine tuned vegetation, view distance and fog for best performance without weird objects pop-in the screen, but avoiding them to be rendered in distances over the max view distance, increasing performance and reducing memory usage.
