Hi, I'm new to the forums but I've been using and enjoying SE for several years now. However, I haven't played it for a long while and have since got a new system. Well, of course SE is the first thing I want to use!
I have noticed that a few graphics options that I used to use have either been changed or removed and I'm just posting to ask about how I can replicate as close to my old settings as possible (ideally much better since the PC is more powerful), or what the reason for the UI/engine changes were.
Here is a screenshot of the last settings I used a year or two back, in v.971.And here are the settings recreated in .980 as closely as I can figure out
First thing: HDR is not an option any more. Is it just always on automatically now?
I remember that I very much prefered the lens flare settings of astroniki2b... but they are no longer an option (and all the links to old forum posts are broken in google), what happened to that setting? Is it just astroniki2? I can probably recover the astroniki2b cfg files if they would work in the new engine.
Additionally I remember that I used to adjust the LOD slider a lot for different experiences/speed of gameplay, usually 2 or 3 (3 once landed for nice landscapes)... but now the slider only goes up to 1.0. What am I missing? Does the speed settings act in relation to the LOD slider now? I was hoping to use the old LOD3 as my base setting and improve it more than that.
Mostly I am worried that my card is not being correctly detected or there is some other issue as to why options are not visible :/
Any help appreciated!
