Starfield fans praise an immersive boost that they consider game-changing for Starfield.
Starfield already makes for an immersive RPG experience, yet thanks to one simple mod, its exploration can become all the more satisfying.
Bethesda’s latest RPG Starfield hasn’t exactly enjoyed an easy start. From being overlooked at The Game Awards nominations to receiving only “mixed” ratings on Steam, fans were expecting an experience comparable to previous Bethesda titles like Fallout and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. However, perhaps this wasn’t too surprising given player expectations for Bethesda titles like Fallout and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Bethesda remains committed to making Starfield an enjoyable experience for players despite current difficulties, so recently released a huge free update that added highly requested features.
Not only are developers working hard on Starfield; modders are doing all they can too to improve it further. One such modder recently published Shadowy Shadows on Nexus Mods which seeks “to reduce fake lighting on both Flora and Ground, make ground and Flora Shadows more shadowy, as well as soften volumetrics more deliciously”
Though seemingly minor, screenshots demonstrate its dramatic improvement to Starfield environments and it should come as no surprise that its creator took inspiration from Red Dead Redemption 2, Cyberpunk 2077 and real life for this project.
“IT IS A LOVELY GAME,” declares its creator, but questions whether some aspects may appear “off.” Is Jemison an ugly planet with overly bright plants and grass that seems out-of-place with everything else happening on its planet surface? Don’t answer this – because you already know the answer!”
Shadowy Shadows was developed with the goal of decreasing brightness levels while adding realistic lighting effects, and players have shown immense appreciation, even going so far as to say it has altered their gameplay experiences and is “game-changing”.
