    Lightbulb @Celestrata Is the Environment Mod ok to use?

    Is this mod okay to use?

    https://www.reddit.com/r/archeage/co...vironment_mod/

    It removes the flickering shadows people have in DX11, and fixes the jittery shadows when Shaders are set to high.

    There's also an increase in View Distance only for Vegetation to reduce pop-ins. It doesn't affect Players/Boats view distance.

    Seems to make the game look a lot better, but I don't wanna risk it without GM approval

    Jittery Shadows:


    Flickering Shadows example:

    Why wouldn't it be? It gives you no unfair advantage over others. Its merely a fix of graphics. That said, I'm going to use it, got the same flickering shadows.
    PC:
    CPU: Intel i5 6600k - 4.3GHz
    GPU: Gigabyte G1 1060 6GB - 2.1GHz
    Ram: Crucial Ballistix 16GB DDR4 - 2400MHz
    Mobo: ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming
    Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro

    Setting the shader slider one lower doesn't fix the flickering shadows though, only the jittery shadows :/

    This is less "game changing" than the FoV mod and the FoV mod is allowed.

    I don't think you can get banned for this.

    But as always, use at your own risk.

    I'm personally gonna use it cuz I'm sick of seeing those awful shadows xd.

    You mean you're still hoping this mod will be listed here?

    Perhaps post it in the appropriate place as well then?

    I've asked about this mod in a Livestream and didn't really receive a specific enough answer.

    From the way it looks you should be safe to run this mod, but no guarantees. It's not of similar status as the FoV Mod, KR Font Mod or Teleport Book Sorting mod.
