I've looked into that one really long thread about the view distance mod- They're talking a lot about impact to the CPU.
My system specs are below and most pertinently the OC'd 980X... I'm assuming that I could take on quite a significant load with that beast and I would like to try.
Some of those vis mods look incredible but what are some of the features that attack CPU performance versus what the graphics cards can do?
You got a realy nice CPU, go ahead for the MOD, I'm sure you won't regret! For me that's the best improvement so far..
Also you can just go back to different settings on the menu, no need for manual uninstalling/breaking the simulator.
No really, I like the sun and transparent status bar. That bar can be turned off for screen shots using LShift Y, btw.
Yes I know about Lshift+Y, it's just that the default bar looks too F4ish for me lol
