Biomutant graphic game mod

In their never ending quest to make games that actually look really good, look even better, some users are developing new ways of bringing graphics to a whole new level.

Trying to correct some of the graphics decisions taken by Experiment 101, Xayjyn developed a new mod for Biomutant that is now available for players who want sharper, more accurate details.

So lets take a closer look at this mod and see exactly how it alters and enhances the pre-existing game settings.

Maximum Beep Boop fine-tunes Biomutant graphics

Basically, the mod removes some of Biomutant’s graphics settings that, normally, you wouldn’t be able to alter in the game menu.

It removes some of the visual effects, such as chromatic aberration and the intense depth of field, based on the idea that this is a game and not a movie.

Other graphics elements like the smudgy temporal anti-aliasing were also removed from the game, along with motion blur and film grain settings as well.

Instead, this mod adds ACES Tonemapping, in order to achieve a far more naturalistic color correction, which gamers will be able to observe, at its peak, on screens that support high dynamic range.

Some other new additions that come with the Maximum Beep Boop mod are the enabling of color correct bloom and, also, subsurface scattering. This will ensure a more subtle fur color in a direct light source, but it’s not very noticeable.

The fade distance, along with the level of detail settings have been maxed out, to ensure high detail even at maximum draw distances. Even ambient occlusion will kick in at the max distance, as well.

Shadow resolutions have been cranked up to as high as they can get, and the true volumetric fog setting will use its full volume density instead of being a hazy fall back transparency.

We know that you’ve probably been also wondering about the impact that running Biomutant with this mod will have on your PC. Well, it mostly depends on your GPU, among other small factors.

Some users have admitted that they are finding it difficult to maintain 60 FPS after they installed this mod.

I tried it, I encountered 0 bugs, but I have a huge drop in FPS (from ~80 to 45 for a 2560 x 1080 screen) on my RTX3060ti. Maybe a 3080 can handle a constant 60FPS.
I tried to tweak down some features and got some results (Texture stream feature removal led to a small improvement) but not enough to keep the game fluid. Maybe it could be interesting to release some king of intermediate version (keeping volumetric fog and global shadows with features and counterbalancing with standard setting for LOD/distances/resolution)
