A new mod for Cyberpunk 2077 has been released today which brings some very welcome improvements to screen space reflections.
Titled Grainy SSR Begone, the mod attempts to fix the screen space reflection grain which is most noticeable when using low settings. The mod isn’t super demanding, so it shouldn’t affect your overall performance in anyway. The mod does require ReShade to work.
This mod attempts to fix the crappy screen space reflection grain (or noise) when using lower quality SSR settings because not everyone has an RTX GPU with DLSS and neither afford the pshyco settings because it tanks the FPS. This mod is performance friendly and costs 1 FPS on most PCs. The denoise fx works fine with Low quality SSR as well.Grainy SSR Begone Description
The mod also comes with an optional Recolor mod in case you want to really get that retro cyber punk aesthetic into your game, without going over the top and completely changing how it looks.
Included an optional Recolor mod based on an 80s Cyberpunk-ish color scheme while keeping the vanilla feel. Recommended to turn the in-game gamma down to 1.05. Negligible performance impact.Grainy SSR Begone Description
Modders are constantly trying to improve Cyberpunk 2077 while CD Projekt Red is busy working on a new update. A new report states that Patch 1.2 will introduce improvements to vehicle handling, police behaviour and more.
The patch focuses on two key problems, one being the response time of the Night City Police Department and the second being vehicle control, especially at lower frame rates. Players reported that the NCPD would spawn pretty much right behind them the moment they committed a crime. Now, even a pro Cyberpunk player would find it annoying, if not challenging, to have 5 NCPD officers shooting at them without having at least a minute to leave the scene.
Players were also reporting that driving around the city, especially at low frame rates was proving to be a challenge. The patch hopes to fix this issue as well, adding Steering Sensitivity and working on the code of the game to optimize driving at lower frame rates.
When experiencing lower frame rates, our cars were harder to control. We traced this to some code that wasn’t handling extreme changes in frame rate properly. The steering speed is now very consistent from 20 to 60+ FPS. Last, we looked at a bunch of tweaks to individual cars and adjusted some of them that were too twitchy in low frame rates, including the player’s Archer Hella.Séamus, Senior Vehicle Programmer, CD PROJEKT RED
Cyberpunk 2077 has become infamous due to its extremely rocky launch and its latest cyber-attack which has caused delays on a lot of projects, including the 1.2 patch update.
