fix 3D grass FIFA game

FIFA 18 has inherited a series of bugs from the previous game. Unfortunately, not all players can enjoy 3D grass even on ultra preset. The pitch
looks flat and carpet alike and this is very annoying.

Gamers really hoped that EA would fix this bug. The fact that the issue is still present actually kills a big part of the joy of the game.

Here’s how one user describes this problem:

Well, we all know that problem started with FIFA17. […] I created a similar post last year for 17. Exactly it wasn’t like this. I just wanted you guys to fix this somehow. You told me IT’S GONNA BE FIXED with patches upcoming. It didn’t. And i accepted this for FIFA 17. I hoped that i won’t have that problem in FIFA 18. And i saw what… Same problem. I know you guys are not gonna fix it, won’t ever try to fix it

It seems that the flat grass issue is not actually a problem, but rather a choice that EA made. 3D grass is simply not supported on a series of GPU cards. Surprisingly, 3D grass texture is available on a series of low-end GPUs.

How to fix 3D grass issue on FIFA 18

We’re sure that EA will eventually broaden 3D grass support. However, if you don’t want to wait until the company rolls out a patch, we’ve got a quick solution for you. Well, this solution works on the GTX 960M.  But you can try it on other GPUs at your own risk.

There a FIFA mod that enables 3D grass support on PC. All you need to do is download it on your PC, replace the .ini file in the patch folder with the one you downloaded and paste the .dll in the main FIFA folder. That’s it, you should be able to play football on 3D grass now.

You can download the FIFA 18 3D grass mod from ModdingWay. Let us know if this fix worked for you.
