OBS: It’s very important to set these Graphic Settings at high to get the best visuals with this mod:


If you want to increase the Trees’ Draw Distance (or LOD), you have to change these lines in the Game_data.sii:
I didn’t include this file in the mod in order to avoid conflict with other mods that use modifications in this file, but you can add it on your own or edit the one that’s being used by another mod (Promods, TruckSim map, Improved Weather Reload and etc.)

Values to edit:
leaves_lod_start: (610.0, 410.0, 50.0)
leaves_lod_end: (670.0, 460.0, 100.0)

    Beautiful scenery, that’s how ETS2 should behave in general.

    works for promods 2.03?…

  8. Adrian G. says:

    Yes, it’s Promods-friendly, tested today and works, in some areas you get higher FPS discrepancies, but nothing worse.

    And I am using the latest PM 2.03 with Project Balkans and adjecent maps as well, so far this FAEL ENV. works perfectly with all of them.

    Not to mention all traffic and other AI mods, but only when put in their appropriate places in the mods manager.

    To make a smooth ride, FAEL should be higher in the mods manager, but under Sound & Fixes pack and under SISL’s mega pack addon, otherwise correct function isn’t garranteed.

    Happy driving.

    Thanks for the positive feedback, guys. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    And yes, it’s compatible with Promods.

    I’m sharing this mod on SteamWorkShop as well, so if anyone wants to subscribe, here’s the link:

    Thank you all.

      It’s great! Could you add some higher trees? and absolutely morning fog – that I miss the most πŸ˜‰ Please…

    Can I run this Realistic Environment (Fael Environment) pack together with Grimes Summer Environment v2.0 pack?
    And if so, how to place the two packs in modmanager (order of priority)? Many thanks in advance……..

    • Rafaelbc says:

      I’m not sure, but I think Summer environment by Grimes also changes the skybox and lighting, so if you want to use both, you have to set higher priority to Fael Environment, since it does not change the skybox. That’s the only way to mix them together. Otherwise, one mod will replace the files from the other and you will end up using only one.

      • gerd_e says:

        Many thx for your quick reply. In the actually game I use promods 2.03, RusMap 1.63, Project Balkans 2.03 and PJ Indo Map v1.8.
        Altogether it runs fine w.o. any problems. Furthermore I use some of the Jazzycat packs, some new trucks, skins and soundpacks. Some moments ago I’ve installed your awesome Realistic Environment (Fael Environment) v 2.8 and have placed it in the upper region in modmanager, just below the several soundpacks, and it runs fine! The graphics are really great now and totally real! You have created a wonderful package, so my big thanks again!
        Now I’m on a trip in Germany from Hannover to Dortmund (A 2) in promods. I enjoy the wonderful world when driving. But then there happened some unexpected events: At some places on that Highway there suddenly look some treetops just through the asphalt surface. Okay, it makes me smile only and it makes no damage when drivin’ just through the treetops. Maybe you take your own look when testing that part between Hannover and Dortmund on the A2 ?
        However, you have done an unbelievable great work and you give it to all of us just for free – like a gift. And I see it as a true gift…
        PS: Only in some of my other profiles I have the Grime’s summer env. pack in use. And I will not mix the two graphic packs. So there will no any problem arise. Wish you a good driving always….

          Thanks a lot for the kind words, my friend. It’s so nice to see someone else enjoying your work and even more pleasant, to see someone taking some time to write about it and be thankful for it. I’m glad you liked it.

          Well, about the treetops coming out of the road…I wrote this on the mod description on SteamWorkShop:

          “Since some trees were replaced by the giant one, some places(mostly bridges) will have some leaves coming out of the road. Beaware of this glitch, it may be an imersion breaker for some. I have no plans to remove the giant trees just because of this glitch since it gives a more realistic visual to the game. ”

          Then only way to fix that, would be resizing the giant tree, but I still have to figure out how to do it. There are lot of things to learn yet about modding, and I only do it on my spare time, so you know it’s something that will take time. So, yeah, I know it’s an imersion breaker, but for now, it’s a weird glitch that you’ll have to tolerate if you want to use this mod. =(
          98% of the map, this mod will look nice, with a realistic aspect, but those 2%, will probrably be an imersion breaker with treetops coming out of nowhere, hehe. I hope I can find a way to fix that.

          Thanks again, mate.

    Thank you for the great mod. πŸ™‚

  12. RoyQSkenz says:

    Really nice work! Overall, a great improvement to the game. The only thing I notice is an FPS drop in some areas, specially when raining and maybe the warmth of the color is a bit too much. (cut down on the yellow type tones) Otherwise, you’ve nailed it!

  13. Ralph says:

    Really nice work as usual. Can you make a winter mod too? Thanks.

  14. Darsh71 says:

    hi, update for 1.25 please

  15. JoachimK says:

    IΒ΄m very happy to have your Mod and I want to say a big Thank You for your fine work. πŸ™‚

    One Question.
    I have also HD from Lautus for Promods. Should I hold it and, when yes, in which Order.

    The Problem with Trees I report to ProMods, I think, they will do something in the next Update / Patch.

    Otherwise: I can see clearly now… πŸ™‚
