What a shame EA! Fuck off, i go to steam :-)
Since you are open to discussion and critics i would suggest you to use less aggressive language when you are on the internet. I would try something like, "Hey Cem, this is great material and thanks for the article. As far as i know from 80lvl Facebook group you can improve the performance or you may consider dropping the price. Keep up the good job." It doesn't have to be the same words but this kind of attitude would lead to a softer conversation because your intention will be clear.
@email@example.com Is there any link or video for the cheaper solutions that you mentioned before? Please share them. I haven't seen any cheaper, faster, HD, loopable and adjustable "normal map" flipbook video that you said in your first post. I would be happy to compare the results in realism.
The developers of the GTA V Redux mod (Josh Romito is actually THE developer in this case) has recently shared a nice video, showcasing some of the amazing graphical modifications to the popular game.
GTA V Redux is a top to bottom overhaul of the entire Grand Theft Auto universe. The developers made a bunch of visual enchantments, which changed the game’s look immensely. The textures of the roads were changed, with custom norman and specular maps, including road damages, cross walks, sidewalks and more. There are new 4k textures for plants, trees, bushes, explosions and particle effects.
The team did a lot of work on color corrections, tone mapping and more. The weather system was changed completely. Lighting is redone, thanks to a simulated global illumination system. Shadows are nicer, there’s a bunch of additional motion blur, DOF effects, bokeh and so on. They have also created individual direct light for every body of water, which makes the ocean look better than in reality. The full list of enchantments, including gameplay changes, is published here.
Meanwhile you can check out the newest trailer n 60 FPS and see it all for yourselves. There’ no information about the time of the release and you can’t get early access version too, sadly.
