it is almost back to the same, though not really
Release → reduced with 1.12 → increased with 1.13 → crippled with 1.14 (though still moddable) → slight increase with 1.15 (mod obsolet) → slight increase with 1.16 (mod obsolet)
i’m not even talking about the fact that for some reason tree distance is bound to the latitude (north of finnland 3-4nm, Nigeria 10nm
@Radegund1983 this is exactly that, games don’t scale with hardware performance, yes you have parameters you can set to customise the settings to fit (in best case scenario), FS2020 might not be the best example of that since the leed plattform might have been actually mid- to highend pc’s. but other games do so quite obvious. Game software has to be “dummed down” to work on consoles since they dont offer half the performance of any high-end pc.
There is one thing to take away from this whole discussion and hundrets of threads and post here. since release (besides minor graphical improvement on very specific issues, spikes, highrise building) performance gradually went down (may not be the average FPS but things like stutters, frametimes, freezes) and while visual fidelity also went down (tree, lod, texture)
