About this mod

This mod adds a new 'Extreme' preset in the graphics settings and enables 4K texture loading.

Permissions and credits
This mod adds a new graphic preset to the game. The goal was to achieve a good balance between performance andappearance. For this reason, only those graphics options that actually result in a visible change have been enhanced. Many other settings that should theoretically improve the appearance, but in reality only affect the performance without offering a visible added value, were not considered. For the sake of simplicity, these new options don't need to be adjusted individually, but have simply been integrated into the respective settings sliders (see video). Nonetheless, this modification does, of course, result in a certain loss of performance. However, so far I could only observe a very tolerable change of about 5-15 fps, depending on the situation.


Will be compatible with any mod that doesn't modify rendering.xml. If you're using HD Reworked Project, make sure to install it before Enhanced Graphics Settings. You'll notice that the Halk Ultra HD texture preset is gone, but setting it to this mods Extreme has the exact same effect.

How to install:

Before you install: I recommend to create a backup of your rendering.xml by simply renaming it to rendering.xml.backup or by moving it to a different directory (Very important!). The file can be found at <game_path>\bin\config\r4game\user_config_matrix. Don't worry if you missed this step, there is a backup file in the download section (Uninstall).

  1. Navigate to your <game_path>
  2. Drag and drop the two folders mods and bin in there
  3. When asked to replace a file click yes (create a backup of this file first!)

How to activate:

  1. Start the game
  2. Go to Options\Video\Graphics
  3. Use your mouse wheel or arrow keys to select Extreme preset

How to uninstall:

  1. Delete modEnhancedGraphicSettings from <game_path>\mods
  2. Copy and replace your backed up rendering.xml to <game_path>\bin\config\r4game\user_config_matrix
  3. If you had not created a backup then download Uninstall from files and copy the bin folder to your <game_path>
