I've been working on this mod called DynamicVRC,that constantly adjusts the view range based on your Framerate, Speed and Actions, helping to ensure smooth gameplay while preventing unsafe visibility and increasing it above normal, even above what the options menu allows, when the framerate and/or your actions allow it!



This being the first of my mods that I'd dare call "major", I'd like for it to have good presentation on release, including a video demonstrating it.
Pictures would require a wall of text and there aren't enough people in the world with the patience to read such things :|

Sadly, I don't have quite enough computing power to record it at decent quality while having enough FPS headroom for the mod to fully demonstrate itself, without me having to explain why the FPS targets aren't the same in the video as the mod itself.

Here's barely 'valid' demonstration:

The things that ruin it are:
1) Not enough FPS headroom to demonstrate the view range changing based on FPS, which would normally be happening all the time. When leaving the island, I had to coast a little to cheat it into expanding into the buildings for example.
2) Visuals. 720p can look pretty good with some AA, but it had to be turned off along with turning down the game settings and recording quality to get at least SOME FPS headroom. If OBS had less performance impact, I'd be able to get a good demo at highest settings no problem!
3) Keyboard driving and generally mediocre usage of the game. In trying to get it all recorded in one go (which DOES look nicer, instead of having cuts to give the illusion of a good drive), I got a little sick of having to redo it, missing ambulance LODs and minor performance inconsistencies that at times hugely messed with how the view ranges change, so being in a not-quite-energetic state of mind, I took the best run without any overly major problems I had.
4) Obstacles are difficult to spell.

Want to help out? Here's what you have to do:


Upload your video to Dropbox or post it unlisted on YouTube!
Post it in this thread to enter the contest. You can also PM me for a rating of ideas!
On January 2, 2018, a winner will be chosen and be sent a $5 Steam Wallet code!
Remember that there's the option to sell these codes for close to their value online, turning it into real money!
Everyone who has made a good submission will receive a special thanks in-game on my next major mod, which you may find a hint towards here :)
Good luck! :D



Get DynamicVRC here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lfint85v0tq3r90/DynamicVRC.7z?dl=0
or, with the Demo files, on the Steam Workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1238733347

Please don't be afraid to post any and all questions and suggestions below, I'd love to hear what all of you think about this mod & contest! :)

It'll be officially coming to GOM and Steam Workshop once this is over!
If this gets enough interest, an MWM version will be made after the 2.3.1 version is out!

Added 9 minutes later:

Horribly rude self-bump!
If anyone skipped this earlier because of the scripted demo, that has been fixed now thanks to a very brave bookhorse.
Turns out remembering to include all the saved cars is even more difficult than organizing a competition that anyone's interested in.
...
Why aren't YOU interested in taking part? The 2.3.1 in the title? $5 not enough? Scary wall of text?

So bad writing on my part... good to know.
Yes, show off my mod in a video and win $5. Read the wall of text and it should make sense :D

Well, this whole thing was stupid.
So much for that MWM version...

Not stupid; just a lack of audience.

2.3.1 isn't THAT unpopular here, is it?
I bet I could've attracted someone here by just presenting it better...
Oh well, at least I can still improve the mod a little before the 'official' launch! In-game settings incoming! :D
Just getting creative with images will do well enough :)

If you posted this as a valid query on the GOM Discord server, people would see it more in real time, if it was in announcements.

At least I think so.

Hehe, true :)
I guess I'm just avoiding shoving this into people's faces too much :D
