Today's performance update includes a completely new method of rendering the plants. This allows much higher visibility of the vegetation. In addition, the French translation has been reworked completely.

The visibility is now allowed up to 300 meters when using “Ultra” and up to 500 meters when using the Photo mode. Basically, the problem with the previous CPU bottleneck has been fixed. In the options, the “Vegetation fading start distance” setting has been removed as it’s no longer needed.

Because the new default values for the graphics settings are higher than before, every user should check or set them again.
