Better anti-aliasing. Upscale/ downscale from any resolution.

This mod enables rendering to a higher (or lower) internal resolution than the native resolution of the game. The benefits of this are different depending on your GPU.

For users with powerful GPUs, dynamic resolution allows downscaling from up to 5 times your native resolution. This antialiasing method called supersampling (or SSAA) while very computationally expensive gives the best results and the sharpest quality image of any AA method.

For users with old GPUs, this mod will help you run the game at a stable FPS without sacrificing UI fidelity by switching to a lower native resolution.

How to:

While in-game press F10 or Left Ctrl+R to open the mod configuration window. The configuration itself is really simple, you just have to choose a scaling value by adjusting the slider (from 25% to 300% your native resolution) and clicking Apply. Quality SSAA downsampling occurs at values above 100%.

Initially the slider is locked at certain increments (150%, 200%, 250%), this ensures optimal pixel locations when downsampling and thus the best quality. There is an option to unlock the slider at a small hit in visual quality.

Users with very powerful GPUs should be able to run at a stable FPS at internal resolutions of 4K and above (slider values 200%-250% @ 1080p).

Users with less-powerful GPUs should look at using a value around 150%. Users with very old GPUs can try upscaling by setting the slider below 100%.

This mod disables the default anti-aliasing method provided by the game. The antialiasing option in the game's settings will do nothing while this mod is enabled.

Consumes performance heavily, but the result is real. Only get this mod if you have high end cpu

Was thinking for a while wether to get this or not, eventually I did, for starting new games it works great, however it screwed up all my saved games, majority of the buildings vanished and well became unfinshable sadly. Just beware it could totaly do a game in youve been working on for ages.

extreme improvement of visual fidelity, by using 200% setting with native 1920x1200 resolution on my gtx780 with maxed settings. little fps drop is worth it, still having >40 fps in most situations.

for some reason, putting the slider to 200% improved my performance and made it look better. can someone explain this?

Not too many mods deserve a comment but this one does, as it fixes one of my personal biggest gripes with C:S. Fantastic mod. I run 300% all the time maxed out @ 1080p (on MSI 980Ti Sea Hawk), and get 22-60 fps depending on scene and zoom level. Game looks beautiful especially with more visual enhancing mods added on (like Daylight Classic and Moving Sun). I haven't tried color correction on top of this yet, it already looks so great!

Hopefully C:S gets better Surround/Eyefinity support soon, or someone makes a mod for the hud at least.
