So no one would have an advantage of a higher rendering-distance (f.e. at comps etc) ..old museum-computers could play like now and normal computers could play with a great visual enhancement through the longer landscape-rendering-distance.
That is a very admirable way of thinking considered there might be but a very few procent of the many thousand people that play this game that actualy have that old computers, admairable but probably not the best business model. I like the ide of different LoD levels but that have a bakside as far as I know from other games (shotémup..), that people with highend computers chose to have a lower LoD seting and giving them a advantage. Making them see the potential target alot earlier because animated ( like other players in a shotémup / animals in this game) wont be effected by the LoD settings. Giving you the advantage to those who have there seting on high to make the game look good but lose visibility of the target because theire LoD is higher.
Low LoD ( now you see me!) High LoD (now you dont!). Gues there is a lot of ways we can bend this and still not make all players happy ha! ha! ha!
I rather have a fixed seting on 300-350m with same LoD for every one but lower quality on the polygon objects like it is now (stationary objects) for low end computers or lower seting. Not giving anyone a advantadge to see more because of lower LoD. Why? Because I see it it like this, it is the animals in the game we hunt not the suronding.
If I had a older computer I rather see the suronding a litle oldstyle 3d looking than less objects than lose the ability to see animals on greater distances or that the animals just disappearing infront of you when you are taking aim (that is very frustrating).
And by the way talking about fixed distances, is it not time to reset (zero) the long distance shot records in the game, for there is no way ever you will be able to take out a target 270m away. There is (cheat) no luck in the world that can make that happen for you as the game is now.... am I righ? That is records that never can be broken..
