Failure in mirror distance

Hey guys,

unfortunately I have some issues with the mirror distance. Pre 1.17 I could see everything behind me. Since 1.17 the objects fade away midway to the horizon.

Fortunately I could find a pre 1.17 screenshot:

Pre 1.17
Since 1.17

I use the latest x64 Steam-Version 1.17.1s and the latest nVidia driver 350.12.

My current settings:
Resolution: 1920x1080
Anisotropic Filtering: 16
Anti-aliasing (MLAA): On
Color correction: On
Depth of Field: On
Grass Density: High
High Dynamic Range: On
Light Visibility Ranges: High
Mirror Distance: Ultra
Mirror Quality: High

Normal Maps: On
Pedestrians: On
Reflection Detail: High
Scaling: 300%
Secondary Vehicle Lights: On
Shadow Texture Size: High
Sunshafts: On
Texture Quality: High
Traffic Headlights: On
Vegetation Detail: High
Weather Quality: Ultra

The error occurs in both x86 and x64 version of the game.
I tried to set the graphic settings in-game (usually I use nVidia GeForce Experience).
I tried to set the mirror distance and quality to low, saved the settings and raised them to high/ultra again.
I tried to lower the scaling to 100%.
All tests above were of no avail.

Further I use no mods, except the official DLCs.

Hope you guys have a solution for this issue.

try to set r_view_mirror_distance in config/console to higher value.

Thanks Max, that worked.
After a test I set the graphics settings again via GeForce Experience and the value was lowered again. So seems to be an issue with the recommended settings by GF Experience.
Still strange, that the values hasn't been raised when I deactivated GF Experience and set the settings in-game :/

After another test, there actually might be an issue with the game after all.

I entirely closed GF Experience, cut off the config file from the documents folder and started ETS2, so that the game will create a new config file (so I could check the original value for the ultra setting).
I set all graphics settings to the highest available value, applied the settings and closed the game.
Still "uset r_mirror_view_distance" is set to "200" what is far too low for an ultra mirror distance setting (in my humble opinion it may be 2048 or even 4096).

Maybe the devs might want to have a look at this.

Here is what my newly generated config looks like, with all settings set to the highest value in-game:

Low is 80
Ultra is 200

Try to set 600.

I had the same issue, so it could be something with the engine on 1.17 patch. I put 600, and it's OK now, so thanks Michal for the hint!

If I were to that, I'd have 10FPS or something :lol:
