ill give you a hint... from main road in the middle of the image (including) to the left is a Photoreal! :D 

while on the right side of the road (US 405) are native sim landclass textures,
Extended Lights Pack works on both sides the same ;)

It looks amazing!
Just to be sure- autogen draw distance do not influence those lights, right?
Is this effect a result of textures or lights as objects?

And most important question, is a release far away? ;))

Thank you Marek :)
we are aiming to make the release this weekend or the following,
"Is this effect a result of textures or lights as objects?" yes both!

in P3D agn draw distance does effect these lights as well but not as restrictive as traditional agn lod,

side by side no Pack vs Pack (same data same settings as above)

This weekend you mean.... today? :P

Looks awesome! And these sorts of distances can be replicated using medium draw distance for example? Sorry I know you have kind of said before but I am still beyond belief! :D

if you are concerned about the pending issue with loading times, LM will resolve this it just cant stay like this!

the above is with max native slider settings (which can be further extended manually),

Chris, could You post a screenshot on how this area would look like with all settings to medium? This is what I will be using due to performance limitations.

I thought I had already expressed my opion before - just reinforcing my original views particularly as I run med draw dist and that is very different to what i see currently with base and vector. So so much better ?

I am struggling to understand what this is, could you summarise in words what the difference is here? I get that the draw distance is now to the horizon but when I run this on my 9700k + 1080ti the FPS suffer and I get stutters

you haven't run this Keith, this wasn't released yet!
generally speaking if your system is struggling there may be other factors in play,

in an upcoming update we will include features enhancement that might not be optimized for every environment at the moment,

we will be include 8K textures ahead of schedule, they are there for those who can and wish to push 8K or 4K resolution,

some of these are experimental and will improve over time, these will be optional not enforced or mandatory,

when used please take into considerations the early stages of these enhancements,
