PS4 Graphical

  1. Overall, this games looks really good. But there are a couple of things I wonder about.

    The first is the weather condition. Sunny looks good, but any cloudy or fog versions look really strange. It's just the flattest grey and clouds look nothing like clouds, rather like smoke. It's really strange and throws me off.

    The second thing is the reflection in the hood when playing from the hood view. The reflection seems to be really low resolution and really stuttering frame rates.

    Are these deliberate design decisions necessary to maintain the frame rates or can there be any improvements?

    Hmm... If you're struggling with frame rate as a result of the weather conditions, please could you inform our support team so this can be looked into? You can get in touch here > https://support.505games.com/support/signup
     
  4. The overall frame rate is fine. I'm talking about the reflection on the hood, the frame rate of the reflection seems really low and low resolution. In videos from earlier builds on console and on PC, this doesn't seem to be the case. It's very smooth.

    And the weather has no frame rate issues, it just looks completely strange to me and unrealistic. It makes the visibility far less for me because of how the colors aren't as distinguished.

    The reflection on the bodywork has a lower framerate so as to save some processing power for more important elements.

    I'd like to see some improvements to the clouds too as they certainly look more like smoke than clouds at the moment. There was definitely a drop in reflection quality after the patch but if it was necessary to give the FPS a boost then I can live with it.

    Still hoping for some further optimisation to the framerate if at all possible as there's a noticeable drop when comparing free practice to a full-grid race.

    Thanks for letting us know. We'll pass this feedback onto the devs!

  8. Regarding the reflections, Stefano explained in his developer series on YouTube that they use a cube map, and that one side of the map is renderered per frame. This produces a fully updated reflection every 6 frames, which is about 10 updates per second.

    From what I have seen, this technique isn't uncommon. CodeMasters F1 2015 on PS4 has reflections that looks very similar from cockpit view.
