So I was playing SEHS some more today and while I think it looks quite good up to Ebbsfleet, it kept striking me how off, and honestly downright ugly and half baked the countryside looked from Gravesend on. I thought I had remembered SEHS looking...well...just better on TS1. So I decided to not let nostalgia or a poor member decide, but rather take some screenshots. I've taken all mid day with full cloud cover in the autumn. Gravesend Station TS2021 TSW2 Google Earth Gravesend to Strood TS2021 TSW2 Strood Station TS2021 TSW2 Google Earth Rochester Bridge TS2021 TSW2 Google Earth ------------ Now, full disclosure, I do run RWEnhancer and Reshade on TS2021 as well as AP Enhanced Weather. I'm running this on an Intil i7 9700K, RTX 3080, and 32 GB Ram at 4K resolution. Both games supersampled. TS2021 with 2x2 supersampling and TSW running at 125% render scaling. All settings maxed out. Gravesend station TSW is more accurate in terms of the platforms and pedestrian bridge. However there was absolutely no effort by DTG to make the scenery around the station accurate. While in TS2021, you can see there are multiple custom assets like the parking structure on the right, and some of the buildings in the back. Both games have the old brick station building on the left platform but TS2021's version actually looks more detailed, natural, and again, just better. Between Gravesend and Strood there's a long stretch of countryside that IMO looks particularly poor in TSW2. The ground is a plain minty green color with no grass until you're on top of it. TSW2 did get the stream along side the rails, which TS2021 missed altogether. However despite the TS2021 reliance on 2D trees and vegetation, it looks more more lush and alive and natural Strood station seems a lot like Gravesend. The platform is more accurate in TSW2, but there was absolutely no effort in making any sort of matching architecture to the surroundings, where TS2021 simply has much, much more attention to detail, especially in the background which suffers from extremely poor LOD in TSW2. Yes, I have all the .ini edits to improve LOD and draw distance. Both games suffer from wishful thinking with the water in the river under Rochester Bridge, which in reality is a muddy brown. Both make solid attempts at capturing a number of custom assets. So for me, TS2021 is hands down the winner overall. It easily beats out TSW thanks to its draw distance and the level of detail the devs worked in to to is. TSW2 continues to have significantly better looking trains, especially the interiors which tend to have a lot of low res textures in TS2021. Thoughts?
