The Difference a Little Lighting Makes

February 8, 2010

Ugh, all this time I had been robbing myself of a better visual experience and I never realized it until now. First of all, I have to say I hardly ever play games on the highest quality settings anyway; even though my computer has some pretty good specs, it still runs better if I’m not taxing all its resources. Thus far, I had been running Star Trek Online with the video quality bar two-thirds of way (at the default settings for “Recommended”), which I’d taken for granted. As such, I never bothered to check the advanced settings. Well, I finally fiddled with them today, did myself a favor and made only a single change that made all the difference.

Before

After

This might be a “no duh” thing to a lot of people, but I admit I’d simply accepted the default settings out of pure ignorance. As you can see, it’s definitely worth turning the lighting quality up to “high”, if your set up can handle it.
