    After comparing the scales. I have come to notice that there is a lot of pop in with bushes and vegetation using this mod.
    The monsters and some objects (like the lamps) are loaded in the distance and you can see them from afar without popping, no problem with that. But the vegation suddenly appear within your field of view making it stand out

    You can see it when walking close to Puerto Valor.
    With out the mod the bushes and vegation of the area only appear when in proximity and with a fade in effect that feel non intrusive. With the mod, the bushes appears popping in the close distance without the fade effect, making it very noticeable.

    Is there a way to fix this. I love seeing the monsters in the distance, but this pop in is too intrusive.
    Keep going with the great work, it's much appreciated :)

    I haven’t found a setting for foliage distance, or fade level. There’s a setting for shadow draw distance but doesn’t have effect during gameplay. Maybe decreasing mesh bias? Although I think it will only affect texture lod...

    I assume that it's because of the amount of optimization that went into this port, i.e. there are specific tweaks/omissions that are beyond standard scalability. I've noticed what he's talking about too, distant foliage is visible but still pops in when you approach it (presumably that pop in happens at the "normal" draw distance). So I doubt it's something that can be easily fixed.

    So which scale value you prefer in the end & why?

    Sadly I went with stock options, as you can read above, the pop in with the x1.5 and x2 was very distracting.

    Stock is the original setting right?

    I'd love to use the 1.5x version, but what do I do with the .pak file inside?

    So, having a bit of an issue..
    I updated to the latest Atmosphere
    And didn't add the Enhanced Draw Distance mod to my Atmosphere folder..
    Everytime I try to play now the game gives me the 2002-4153 error code.. However when I put the mod back on.. It works perfectly.
    Is there a way to completely remove the mod from your save?

    I’m using latest atmosphere and I can enable/disable the mod without problems, I can even add other mods on top of that :P
