Votan's Adaptive (Video-)Settings  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.5.5
by: votan [More]
DependenciesDescription
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

The addon was not broken. But changing occlusion causes a fade to black to apply. This feature is removed, now.

They definitely did something because Reshade is having an issue and recompiling all the time now as long as the addon is active.
Yes this is the issue I was having. Disabling it allowed me to play. It only causes the game to Freeze if you have reshade as it keeps trying to reload it and the textures. If you disable reshade, the addon just causes everything to reload constantly without the freeze. So it just looks like all textures reload every 2 seconds.

What is your configured max view distance?
100
I think "Ultra" was not available by the time grass adjustment was implemented. Will be fixed.

View Distance Tooltips

Hi,

I just figure out something.

this is bug or my installation addons is corrupt?
or the tooltips feature for view distance is not yet available?
because I only see it show the fps tooltips when my cursor on the view distance status.

Thank you

Ehm, and what is wrong? Can't see anything.
If I use them both there's no issue of it, the both addons work well. The adaptive video working great, and the info panel showing the more information too. but the problem is the "view distance" info dissapear from ZOS fps/ping panel.
Ah. This is not a bug. I skip hooking the panel, if InfoPanel is active. Hoft could add that, if he wants to.
aaah I see, thank you for the information.
Hope it will be add in the future by hoft.
