    Graphics is set to the highest preset ("extremely high"), but the textures look very low res. Also, it looks like there are strange artefacts. Is this normal?

    I know that the blurry background can somewhat be fixed by turning off depth of field. However, I am talking about the following things:

    Screenshot 1: The "blocks" in the water (which look like compression artefacts).
    undefined

    Screenshot 2: The textures on the rocks and beams in the foreground. It is relatively close to the camera but not that close (look at the rope for comparison).
    undefined

    Screenshot 3: The banner, especially its borders.
    undefined

    Screenshot 4: The textures on the boat. Again, it is close to the camera, but I am not sure it is supposed to look like this, even up close.
    undefined

    The render resolution is 1440p (the screenshots have been scaled up to 2160p and back down to 1440p, but it does not matter for my problem). I had to crop the images due to size limitations. HDR does not change anything.



  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @braindead_paul Yeah, I've noticed this as well. Some of it is just down to some poor quality textures, but things like the blocky water and fire is something else, and it ruins an otherwise nice presentation... The water especially, as it looks great close too. When in command of your ship towards the bow, on the inside also becomes blocky/pixelated.... it's really strange and like nothing I seen before. Settings, drivers or tweaks make no difference, so it's inherent to the engine, or the way it's used in this game.

    @ruanseth Thanks for the reply. It is good to know it is not just me. I have noticed the effect you describe as well (I think it's the same thing). The boat's sail is another example for the "blocky" look.
    This is really unfortunate, since the game does look really beautiful in other scenes.
