CU style-graphics

Apr 4, 2020
Hello all, I'm trying to find a way to make the game look like it did during the CU. I noticed even joining a CU emu server that with no mods running it looked "smoother" than Pre-CU servers. I remember even when the CU came out on live it "looked" better. I'm ignorant to a lot of this, but it seems like the bump mapping looked better, there was native AA and the bloom effect looked better. Everything just looks smoother and more updated. Is this something that I can mod outside of Reshade (Reshade still doesn't achieve it) or is it something built in to the CU codebase that I'm just never gonna get on a PreCU server?

thanks, love the site.
