Autumn veg...

Personally view that mod as a cheat. Lower vegetation means artifacts are far easier to spot. Combined with third person view and it's an exercise in 'low-hanging fruit' selection.


It is not "lower", it is colored more brown to look like fall.

I like it because those colors make the zone appear more dead.

Gotta disagree with you on that point. Summer foliage is fuller, taller, more lush. Ground coverage with the fall mod installed it's lighter, shorter, more sparse. Mind you, no two computer systems are the same.

BTW the X2 Lab part of the wiki needs serious revision. Between it and configurator corruption/crashes it's a religion loosing experience.

Can't see why you think it's a cheat in that respect. There's just as much veg and other crap getting in the way as in the vanilla July veg. I might agree that running at a low detail or render might confer an advantage, but some players have to do that to get the game to run.

Either veg variation is just as concealing to NPCs and just as transparent to bullets.

Perhaps you could clarify what you would like revised in the X2 article.
All of it plays about the same as in 1.3003 except the end fight and it's pretty obvious what you do there.

After reading many of your posts clearly we have differing opinions of what constitutes a cheat. Mine definition is that if a modification makes the game easier to play, it's a cheat.

As to the graphics level, don't have a top of the line card in this system, game play is on medium.

Also think your definitions of obvious likely differ as well. Would detail out the differences, but won't spoil it for you. BTW, what difficulty level do you play at? That may be a factor.

So let's see if we can get this cheat stuff reconciled.
By your definition, if anyone were to play Extra hardcore survival, Unrealistic hardcore economy, Darker nights and so on; that wouldn't be a cheat?

"Also think your definitions of obvious likely differ as well. Would detail out the differences, but won't spoil it for you."

Back to this again? Say your piece, right here, or let your strawman die in peace.

I play on Veteran mostly - is that a cheat as well?
