I have tried again and I'd say there are still less peds than the default config (which is configurable now, of course) but enough to accomplish that mission 👍

I'm wondering why the GBATemp file is small (2MB) while the 4pda file is the regular ~30MB.

It just can't be. Now the density of pedestrians for all presets is increased even more than the original
0.3 > 0.4
0.4 > 0.5
0.5 > 0.6
0.6 > 0.7
So I don't believe you =) Check your settings.
Whithout mod "Simulation Scale" is set to "1", "Medium" (0.4), now it's 0.5 on default settings.

On 4pda i uploaded a full "main" file. It's more comfortable for me.

Useless to do that. Updates are important for fixing serious collision bugs that break the in-game experience. It is much better for mods to work in newer updates than wasting time supporting older versions.

Collision coordinates fixes are definitely a welcome addition. I wonder how they misplaced them in first place. Some of them are WAY too far from the real geometry.

Update #4 [25.11.2021]
  • Mod updated for game version 1.0.3
    • Be sure to delete the old "pakchunk0-Switch_1_p.pak" file when upgrading and old exefs patch
  • Reduced image brightness
    • In the Switch version, it was slightly higher than the standard
  • Slightly increased drawing range of small objects
    • Adjusted by the option "Distance Scaling"
  • Slightly increased sun / moon light intensity
  • Increased Shadow Amount
    • Shadows will now be slightly darker
  • SSAO now uses Compute Shader instead of Pixel Shader
    • This slightly degraded the quality of SSAO with TAA anti-aliasing, but increased performance.
  • Increased car density for all presets of the "Simulation Scale" option
  • Filtering of Specular and Normal Map textures changed from linear to anisotropic
  • Anisotropic texture filtering reduced from 4x to 2x
  • Slightly reduced resolution of cascaded shadows
  • Increased drawing range of large objects
    • For all presets the "Graphics Quality" option. For example, low-quality HLOD buildings will now display less closely
Available in the first post
Perhaps the increase of vehicle density and drawing range was a mistake. Let me know if the performance gets significantly worse.

I have recorded a 100% characters missions (including extras) playthrough with the graphics mod. It was the update #2 and 1.0.2, since it was recorded a few days ago. I also activated the SSAO and disabled the AA (since it looks really bad with SSAO, and I don't mind a few jaggies).


Yesterday I completed the Playstation 2 version and, even having far more performance issues, it feels 10x better. At least GSS is improving it, which is something that I didn't expect.
