Enhanced Video Settings


EVS expands the graphics options with simple config changes.

This is an experimental, mostly untested mini-mod in "alpha" state.
In the upcoming couple of weeks there will be frequent changes.
Some settings may not work or may cause issues.

Not signed for multiplayer at the moment.

Usage: open the video settings and try the new levels for the old options.

View distance goes up to 40,000m
shadow distance 5,000m (above ~500m will cause some glitching and a hit on performance)
Terrain detail Ultra+ (grass clutter renders further and distant terrain is more detailed. Setting overrides the vanilla limit on very high terrain view distance)
more particles (not verified yet. The vanilla ultra setting is already near maximum apparently)
higher resolution shadows (noticeable effect in more distant shadows)
lower/higher textures and object detail (not very noticeable effect, except in the low end)
better clouds and water reflections (not very noticeable effect)
more dynamic lights (the vanilla limit is 16 lights, EVS uses the maximum hard-coded limit of 32)
More depth of field and sharpening (beyond reasonable levels)

To install Enhanced Video Settings you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Included files:

Forced Ultra+ terrain detail level is even more detailed.
Optimized, less jagged shadows.
Some slider limits adjusted.

Forced Ultra+ terrain activates now also in the editor.
Shadows even a little more ultra.
Disappearing particles fixed by replacing the vanilla highest setting with Ultra+.
Added a EVS Ultra preset for a single-click FPS killer.
Removed non-functional settings for HDR and anisotropic filtering.
Clouds even more heavenly. (Possibly)
Added Super Low terrain detail.
Multiplayer signed.

Adjusted some settings and cleared out some non-functional ones

Didn't work.
