    Issue With Missing Foliage - Downgrade?

    Not a problem I was glad to do it, I hope it was instrumental in bringing visibility to the issue. **I can also confirm with the latest patch this issue has been resolved. All foliage is rendered as before and ferns no longer fade out** A big Thank you Techland and all the devoted developers, programmers, artists and everyone involved in the game. You guys are fantastic. This game truly is a work of art. I'm looking forward to finishing Nightmare mode and starting The Following. The PCSS shadows look absolutely amazing and are a great addition to the game. I commend any developer that helps push the limits of cutting edge tech and visuals. Thank you again for everything, you guys are great. I will support you for years to come. Regards, MaX

    Ps4 Latest Patch Came With A Downgrade (?)

    It's pretty bad but honestly you're probably not noticing half of what was actually changed with NPCs and foliage. The issue has been noted but I've not seen an update since. http://forum.techland.pl/topic/11427-issue-with-missing-foliage-downgrade/

    Yes the ferns now evaporate into thin air when you come close to them but that is only half of the issue. If you take a look at the screen shot comparisons on the first page there is quite a lot of missing plants and foliage that was present in the game up until the enhanced edition patch. Thank you for the link.

    Just checking in. I wouldn't mind an update but I'm sure everyone is super busy getting the next patch ready.

    Issue With Missing Foliage - Downgrade?

    Dear Techland, Grzegorz and Marta, You have caught me a bit by surprise with this information. This news makes me exceedingly happy to hear, I must say it's quite unexpected. I had all but written off having this "issue" addressed. I have a bit of renewed faith and respect in Techland and yourselves. I am quite passionate about my hobby and I know at times I can be a tad bit..harsh. I understand that miscommunication do happen and the work that everyone does there is exceedingly complex in regards to programming and engine development. To be quite frank I considered Dying Light to be a complete masterpiece as it was already, a shear work of art. As a masterpiece of artwork and technology you can imagine I have developed deep feeling and emotion in connection with the game. I tolerated the 1.05 downgrading but this issue is one I could not let go. It was as if someone had destroyed the Mona Lisa and forced me to watch it. We know I am not alone and there are indeed many other new pending issues as well. Going forward I do not expect a patch overnight at all but with this simple acknowledgment of the situation and a statement that it will be corrected you have indeed begun to redeemed my regards and others I'm sure. For this I thank you greatly. I will, as soon as the patch is made public, retract/update/delete all of my statements across all media as such harsh words may not have been warranted after all. Again thank you and I will patiently await further communication.

    It's a very strange decision. To downgrade a game that has been out for so long. I've tried to get used to it but the game world just look so empty now. They said they would reply within 48 hours. Hope to get an answer soon. Anyone else that does not approve of this downgrade or would like to know whats going on please chime in so they are aware of your thoughts on all this missing foliage.

    I've opened a ticket, though I'm hopeful this is a bug, I'm afraid it's a total downgrade. Many users will be never be able to view what this game once was. I thought we had graphic options on PC for a reason, seems most people don't understand what they are for including Techland. Once the ticket is answered I will update. I will say I will not be getting the following and I will not allow my reinstalled game to be updated or connect online again. In the end I lost nothing and will keep more money in my pocket, it's just a huge let down what they've done.

    Thank you for doing that I do appreciate it. I'll do the same. In the meantime I will try to keep this post in the forefront for greater visibility and please update us if you hear back. Also just to show some NPC changes. Some of the models have very messed up eyes and IMO the skin does not look as good as before. It looks like the cloths have had a lot of details removed however there does seem to be more variations. This whole Enhanced Edition just screams downgrade, I know it's a balancing act but I liked the art and direction way more before it was "Enhanced". Enhance definition: Intensify, increase, or further improve the quality, value, or extent of. I see none of this in the EE "patch" Some NPC Changes. Brecken looks like an upset strung out drug addict now. Thank god they didn't change Jade.

    I'm not sure how to open a ticket. Isn't this post a ticket itself. They can mark it solved or leave it not solved?

    I would like to know just what you think you've done techland. This is not funny and is a huge downgrade. Behold your "Enhanced Downgrade Edition." (all shots on PC)

    The way the ferns dither away I highly doubt it's a bug. This is something they've added. All the missing plants and foliage is no doubt their way of "Enhancing" performance. The entire map is missing so many plants and foliage it looks bare now. I'm sorry but this "enhanced" edition is a full on downgrade. Screww The Following, I'll keep my Non Enhanced, Non Downgraded version. WTF Techland. A performance updated should not mean lower graphics and less detail.

Thank you again for everything, you guys are great. I will support you for years to come. I am seeing missing foliage all over the entire map as well as plants that fade into nothing a foot or two away from view. Please tell me I have some strange issue. Both are set on High for foliage.
