Hello everyone!

As some have already seen, Clubic.com (French website) written in a technical review on Battlefield 4. I suggest you:
http://www.clubic.com/jeu-video/article-597652-1-battlefield-4-guide-technique.html [clubic.com]

But here a passage hold our attention.

- The graphics settings 2/2
-- Terrain Decoration.

This time, it's easy to spot the influence of this option, it serves to show more or fewer elements of vegetation on the ground. Except that we met a very surprising bug: the labels of the four quality levels have clearly been reversed somewhere in the code of the game! In other words, the more you increase the quality of this option, unless the game is beautiful and it will be fluid. It lets you enjoy by yourself with our screenshots and our statements framerate.

Low (so, Ultra): http://img.clubic.com/06829508-photo-details-du-terrain-faible-donc-ultra.jpg [img.clubic.com]
Normal (so, High): http://img.clubic.com/06829510-photo-details-du-terrain-normal-donc-eleve.jpg [img.clubic.com]
High (so, Normal): http://img.clubic.com/06829512-photo-details-du-terrain-eleve-donc-normal.jpg [img.clubic.com]
Ultra (so, Low): http://img.clubic.com/06829514-photo-details-du-terrain-ultra-donc-faible.jpg [img.clubic.com]

To determine whether this bug is widespread or systematic, do not hesitate to tell us in the comments what it is you. Note: For the quality change is taken into account, you must either restart a single-player or multi redeploy.



Some players (including myself) we can't get the same rendering of vegetation (Terrain Decoration) . (See: Low (thus Ultra)).


Windows 8.1 x64 + HD7970

Here is my "Terrain decoration" level .
Ultra (so, Low): http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2013/46/1384456734-screenshotwin32-0036.png [image.noelshack.com]
Low (so, High): http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2013/46/1384456744-screenshotwin32-0037.png [image.noelshack.com]
Medium (so, Ultra) : http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2013/46/1384456766-screenshotwin32-0038.png [image.noelshack.com]



How make this test ?
- Go to the "Test center" at the same position on the screenshots.
- Set the "Terrain decoration"
- If no immediate changes = redeployment.

- Also specify the operating system and the GPU if you get a few things different.


& Thank you to the moderator or CM could give us more details.

wow, it really does feel like we're still playing a beta :P I attempted to change from ultra to low and got the improved rendering as in the picture above. Hope they'll figure this one out, just here to give it a bump to give it some attention :)

Haha... I had this on low so I could spot baddies better, I will switch to ultra and see if that works.
It's a joke, not a dick... don't take it so hard. KCCO!

It seems mixed between people what setting actally is Ultra: for some it's Low, for others it's Medium.

Looks like a good way to spot prone snipers too. Put the setting to ultra (low) and its harder for them to hide in the grass.
