    I would like to see functional mirrors added in soon. Whether it be a mod or an official addition to the game. Driving the bus without them can be a challenge.

    If you enable dynamic reflections, the mirrors will work :)

    Let me give it a spin: How about dynamic reflection: Mirror only option? maybe that's gonna cut the framerate but not as bad as with all dyn reflecs turned on but its gonna be useful for driving still.

    Not rendering the vehicle but only rendering the mirrors might not have the performance you hope for. The engine to my understanding uses a single cube map of a desired resolution that you can also change how frequently its updated. You could have this cubemap projected to the entire world and it wouldnt impact performance if any because its still just drawing from that single cube map. Try setting update frequency to half, resolution to half and detail and distance to lowest, should help with your frame rate.

    If this doesn't help then you may want to consider that your pc is a potato and in need of an upgrade. :rolleyes:

    The engine doesn't support Picture in Picture, so we get dynamic reflective mirrors and not camera based mirrors, hence part of the lack of self rendering on the vehicle mirrors.

    I think parts of the terrain are missing in the mirror reflections as well. Mirrors could indeed use a refresher. It's difficult to use them for turning a bus or truck with a trailer.

    They should just do it anyway. Just because not everybody can run it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t exist.
