Dear Devs and ZOS Community Staff,

I really would appreciate a comment on the following issue:
I play ESO with a PS4 Pro, hooked up to a 1080p screen mainly, but also connected to a 4K HDR set while visiting the family. I noticed a significant downgrade in terms of image quality and also graphical effects (water reflections!) when comparing the 1080p performance mode on the 4k screen (functioning normal, with higher draw distance, better shadows, water reflections and ambient occlusion) with the graphics when connected to the 1080p-only screen.
It seems to me as if the graphics mode on 1080p screens is just the 4k setting downsampled to full HD, because all of the enhanced graphics are disabled. This is not working as intended and should be fixed.
I also would like to suggest something: I think it would be great for 1080p-only users to have access to two modes, like 4k users do:
- a mode where they get the downsampled 4k settings (like it is right now, with reduced effects but more stable framerate and higher image quality b/c of downsampling)
- another mode with all of the better visuals as described above (shadow fidelity, reflections and AO which should be there anyway but are currently missing somehow)
I miss those water reflections, especially when thinking about the upcoming Morrowind Chapter! The experience in Vvardenfell will be so much better with those enhanced graphics.
I'm looking forward to a statement, thank you alot and keep up the great work!
