With these modes, you can improve a bit on the Cyberpunk 2077.
It’s almost certain that in the future, modders will be able to do amazing things with the CD Project Red game, but there are already some notable creations that you can use to make the experience a little better while you’re waiting for updates.
Nothing shows how much power resides in the modder community than the fact that we could list many examples of fans finishing semi-finished games due to a developer or publisher decision, or making long-coveted remakes for an older gem.
Unfortunately, Cyberpunk still has plenty to patch up in 2077, and hobby coders immediately threw themselves into Night City to redesign it a bit. We have now gathered for you the mods which we think are most useful; there will be some of these that will improve the performance and look of the game, others will tweak the gameplay somewhat.
What’s important, though, is the disclaimer before experimenting: be sure to back up your game files before you start installing mods, as they can be quite confusing. Safety first!
Mods that change the performance and graphics of the game
Better Field of View Slider
This mod is used to extend the line of sight a bit in the game. By the way, we also find a setting tab for this within the game, but with it, the maximum value of Field of View is only 30, while this raises this limit to 150. However, due to the more models displayed, the fps number may drop during use, so you should only try stronger hardware.
Cyber Engine Tweaks
This mod was created exactly to remove some of the bugs from the game that come from Red Engine 3. It can also be used to slightly improve the performance of the Cyberpunk 2077, as it also allows AMD CPUs to use all the processor cores while the game is running.
It also gives you the option to turn off passers-by in the city, stop Async Compute and antialiasing options. You can do these in the game settings anyway, but using the mod simplifies the process.
Cyberpunk Autonomous ReShade – True HDR
If someone may not have an HDR-capable monitor or TV, but still want to experience a little of the enhanced light-shadow effects, feel free to give it a try with this mod. Of course, the improved visualization here too can result in fps falling. You can analyze exactly what the mod will look like in this comparative video:
Draw Distance Boost
You have probably encountered the phenomenon that a game draws a texture quite late. This is usually done to improve performance a bit, however, if the developers are skillful, we won’t even notice this while playing.
Unfortunately, this cannot be said of Cyberpunk 2077, as we can run into the phenomenon on the track quite often. Draw Distence Boost can help the game start drawing models first, so maybe a few times a car will come in front of us in the middle of the road while cracking at 150 mph in Night City.
Even if the gameplay isn’t, the graphics are greatly transformed by this fan creation, which gives each texture a strong contour, making the world of Cyberpunk 2077 a bit like Borderlands games. Anyone who loves cell shaded games and would also watch Night City in this form can feel free to give it a try.
