The problem is that many of these "nerfs" for better console performance are baked into the maps (e.g. what distance some static object will pop-in at, whether a particular light source casts shadows, etc.), so it is not easy to make them configurable in the settings.Please add new "Uber" settings, which would be one step up from Ultra, to get rid of the horrible texture pop-ins and streaming issues, etc. that has been plaguing the game for so long.
Restore the game to it's full glory for those people who have invested hard earned money into getting quality PC components. Because you (should) get what you pay for, right?
I do not believe this to be a disservice to people who play on console and low end PC's. They are already getting the best for their hardware.
But this really should be no reason to nerf the game's visuals like it has been done.
