Although 600 on terrain LOD is a slideshow unfortunately.
The problem with mods, or increasting tree detail to 200, you end up with denser forests at the edge of the “circle of trees” making it look even more ridiculous.
I’m so annoyed that nothing can be done about it, and those early mods that increased the distance but got nerfed were absolutely ideal. I guess we are just in the dumbing down phase for the X-Box release.
Fly high to lose the trees and you then have the lowering in terrain resolution. I have a beefy machine and good graphics settings, and this looks absolutely nothing like it does on the promotional videos.
I’ve noticed a lot of the fan art on the official MSFS channels is all instagram, blurred out, high depth of field stuff, not showing how the sim looks when you are actually flying a tubeliner and looking out the window.
I won’t say it looks poor, because it dosn’t, but it doesn’t look great, or anything like how I was expecting when MSFS dropped.
