Description:
This addon is a small config designed to increase the visual performance of ArmA II. It does so 
by removing and reducing the quality of various aspects of the game. The addon is designed for 
those who have troubles running the game with good performance or so that other settings my be 
pushed higher. It only works on Utes and Chernarus. Note that this is still in a beta phase, 
future version is impending.



Features:

- Grass rendering altered
- Grass clusters are less dense
- Less dust produced from vehicles on land
- "removed" animations from grass
- Wildlife removed from Chenarus and Utes



Features to be implemented:

- Adjusting irradience (glossiness) of water and glass
- Removing the animations from trees and bushes
- Look at shaders
- Look at texture loading priorities
- Spread grass out to avoid odd patches
- Options to change settings
- Binarize and sign



Issues:

- More visible to AI (untested)
- Does not work properly with some addons, unless executed in this order 
  E.g -mod=@FPShelper;@mod2;@mod3
- Sometimes patchy grass gives bad appearence
