Votan's Adaptive (Video-)Settings  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.3.8
by: votan [More]
Description
This add-on adjusts the view- and particle distance to the current graphic load and context (normal, combat, UI hidden) to stabilize the framerate. If the view distance drops and drops, additional effects get disabled:
Distorsion, god rays and antialiasing. In this order.

And if the framerate raises again, e.g. because you left the crowded city, the view distance increases again. This way you can choose between quality and performance: Smooth fps in combat and best graphics otherwise.

Since 1.3.0: If you travel or use a door, the view distance is set back to the average between minimum and maximum. This is because:
  • You may leave a low GPU load zone and enter a heavy GPU load zone and do not hit a GPU burst wall.
  • You may leave a heavy GPU load zone and enter a low GPU load zone and would see the "nothing" where the opposite wall should be.

This add-on works with Shissu's PvP/Game Booster. The difference is:
  • Shissu's PvP/Game Booster is more effective, but also regonizable and active during combat/on demand only.
  • This add-on is less effective than Shissu's PvP/Game Booster, but more subtile and operates all the time.

If you want to see the add-on's activities, enable framerate performance indicator (/fps)

A "Thank You" to @dorrino and @Cabum for their feedback.

Remarks
  • Be fair to the system: If you use (adaptive) v-sync, like I do, keep the minimum framerate a few frames below limit (<60).
    Otherwise the add-on can not detect under-load.
  • As higher your target framerate, as slower the view distance will increase again.

If you feel dissatisfied with the second main menu entry for "Addons", take a look at Harven's AS to LAM adapter.

Important!
If your view distance drops and keeps at minimum (your Minimum View Distance) you may have a problem with an add-on or need a new machine .

If in doubt, just don't use the add-on and you will see.

Beschreibung
Dieses Addon passt die Sichtweite und Partikeldistanz der aktuellen Grafikauslastung und dem Kontext an (Normal, Kampf, UI ausgeblendet) um die Framerate zu stabilisieren.
Wenn die Sichtweite schrumpft und schrumpft, werden weitere Effekte abgeschaltet:
Verzerrung, Lichtstrahlen und Antialiasing. In der Reihenfolge.

Wenn die Framerate wieder steigt, zum Beispiel weil Du die überfüllte Stadt verlassen hast, steigt die Sichtweite wieder. Auf diese Weise kannst Du zwischen Qualität und Performance wählen: Hohe Framerate im Kampf und ansonsten bessere Grafik.

Seit 1.3.0: Wenn Du reist oder eine Tür verwendest, wird die Sichtweite wieder auf den Mittelwert zwischen Minimum und Maximum gesetzt. Und zwar deswegen:
  • Möglicherweise verläßt Du eine Zone mit geringer GPU Last und tritts in eine Zone mit hoher GPU Last und wirst nicht von einer Belastungsspitze umgehauen.
  • Möglicherweise verläßt Du eine Zone mit hoher GPU Last und tritts in eine Zone mit geringer GPU Last und würdest das "Nichts" sehen, wo die gegenüberliegende Wand sein sollte.

Dieses Addon funktioniert zusammen mit Shissu's PvP/Game Booster. Der Unterschied ist:
  • Shissu's PvP/Game Booster ist effektiver, aber auch bemerkbarer und nur während des Kampfes/bei Bedarf aktiv.
  • Dieses Addon ist weniger effektiv als Shissu's PvP/Game Booster, aber mehr subtil und arbeitet die ganze Zeit.

Wenn Du sehen willst, was das Addon macht, kannst Du den Framerate Performance Indikator aktivieren (/fps)

Anmerkung
  • Sei fair zu dem System: Wenn Du, so wie ich, (adaptives) V-Sync verwendest, halte die Minimum Framerate unter der Begrenzung (<60).
    Sonst kann das Addon keine Unterlast feststellen.
  • Je höher die Ziel Framerate, desto langsamer erhöht sich die Sichtweite wieder.

Wenn Du nicht mit dem zweiten Hauptmenüeintrag für "Erweiterungen" leben kannst, schau Dir mal Harven's AS to LAM adapter an.

Wichtig!
Wenn die Sichtweite auf Minimum (15) fällt und dort bleibt, besteht entweder ein Problem mit einem Addon oder Du brauchst ein neuen Rechner .
Im Zweifel, verwende das Addon einfach nicht und Du wirst sehen.

To Do
- Option to change view distance only. Keep particle distance untouched.

Not the best moment to seek for the screenshot key, but hey 60fps


Another fight. This time a bit more away and a bit earlier in fight:
version 1.3.8:
- API bump 100023 "Summerset".

version 1.3.7:
- Do not persist adaptive changes to video settings, so they do not affect character selection screen.

version 1.3.6:
- Fix key-binding toggle.

version 1.3.5:
- API bump for "Dragon Bones".
- Support for addon "InfoPanel". => Disable own output.
- Added API "VOTANS_ADAPTIVE_SETTINGS:GetViewDistanceText()", if InfoPanel wants to include that.

version 1.3.4:
- API bump for Clockwork City.

version 1.3.3:
- API bump for Horns of the Reach.

version 1.3.2:
- API bump for Morrowind.

version 1.3.1:

- New option to allow to keep particle distance untouched.

version 1.3.0:
- API 100017 'One Tamriel' ready.
- Moved "Advanced Settings" to new addon.
- Minimum and Maximum View Distance can be configured.
- View Distance is reset to the average between minimum and maximum on travel and using doors. (Cyrodiil gates are not doors)
- Adjusted relation between "View Distance" and "Particle Distance".
- Changed default settings to "high-end".

version 1.2.6:
- Reworked performance meter re-arrangement. (pure aesthetic)

version 1.2.5:
- Due to reproducable frame drops after 5sec occuring at some wayshrines, I increased loading burst suspend delay to 10s. Can be configured now.
- Slower increasing of view distance to prevent falling from one frame drop to the next in locations like Orsinium.
- ESO 2.5 (Shadow of the Hist) ready

version 1.2.4:
- ESO 2.4 API 100015

version 1.2.3:
- ESO 2.3 API 100014

version 1.2.2:
- Fixed minor bug in settings: Upon showing the settings, the sliders did not change their max value, if different from default.
- For Advanced: Increased maximum of "Maximum Framerate" slider to 1000fps, to disable limiting by game.
* Limit your framerate via v-sync or driver settings, e.g. nvidia control panel, to prevend overheating!

version 1.2.1:
- Enable/Disable auto view distance without reloading UI, including key-binding.
- Configurable "Framedrop Weight" of algorithm.

version 1.2.0:
- Added 4 sec delay after player activation to overcome CPU load burst at startup
- Adjustment should react faster to sudden framedrops
* For real massive framedrops, the framerate will fall below threshold
- New option and key-bind to disable showing distance in frame meter

version 1.1.0:
- Made timer faster, so that the adjustment is more responsive
- New option: slider to adjust speed of changing view distance
- Suspend operation during travel

version 1.0.0
- initial version

Agreed - I tested this after seeing the post and got a big FPS increase in many areas.
I turn off reflections two years ago

Nice to know

https://forums.elderscrollsonline.co...omment_5063953

ZOS_AlexTardif:
"PS: Pro tip, if you have a good GPU and have all your settings maxed but want higher performance, change your Reflection Quality to Low instead of Medium or High. "Low" reflections are actually using screen-space reflections, rather than heavy-duty planar reflections. Planar reflections are more accurate, but they're far harder on the CPU, whereas screen space reflections are almost entirely a GPU operation and should lighten the load on your CPU quite a bit."

^^ Indeed.

I will take care of it in the next release.
Does this mean that I should be able to see the view distance in the panel, even when using Info Panel? Because view distance won't show up at all for me, unless I disable Info Panel.
Hoft could implement that, but didn't.

First you go to the addon's settings and switch "Touch Particle Distance" to "Off".
When go to the "Video" settings and change "Particle Distance" to <=50.

If your ESO's performance issue are typical like this: 30% CPU, 50% GPU and still 30fps or less only.
This is "Your machine could do more, but not on a single core". => If you can overclock your CPU a bit more. Of course on your on risk.

Maybe this gets better with "Summerset".

I keep it on all the time. But I would say it depends on how restrictive your combat settings are and how powerful your rig is. Changing the view distance massive up and down due all the in/out combat could increase the object memory leaking (frame drop over time) everybody "feels" to be there.
