    Hello! So on CXL Platinum I have two issues: First, All the cars and trucks on the road appear as grey boxes unless I zoom in really close on them. When I zoom in all the way they look normal but only from very very close. Secondly, on the NEXL ferry mod, If I place a pedestrian access station, it looks normal from far away, but when I come close to it, it disappears and all you can see is the fence around it and the lampposts. Also, when I set up an actual ferry line, You can actually see the 'paths' that the ferries will take, and the ferries themselves appear as little grey boxes, like the cars and truck on the roads, except that when I zoom in they still look like little grey boxes. I tried showing screenshots but they didn't work either. Yeah I'm a noob.:unsure:

    Those grey box problem you are talking about is the same for all other players when going far from the vehicle. There is a mod to fix that as well as making the game to use only one Level of Detail(LOD), the most detailed of them all, for all the buildings. But be warned, you need a REALLY powerful PC or it might melt your CPU! :p

    Think I'll try that no more boxes patch out as well. I had not heard of it before now.

    Haha I didn't risk trying the first CPU-melting hardcore mod, but the second one works great!:)

    Yep the no more boxes works fine and I have not had a hit on performance. I don't think I'll try the super high mod as my card is a bit old (only 512MB) and I think it would grind my PC to a halt even though it's got 6 cores.

    The no-boxes one has crashed my game before.
