Turning off animation of cars passing on console screen

Does anyone know how to stop the animation of traffic in adjacent lanes on the console screen? I find it really distracting. I don't mind so much the lane markers, or even traffic cones, appearing beside my car avatar. It is the sudden animated cars and trucks that whiz by that jolts my attention. Seems unnecessary to show these since I'm already seeing them through the windows.

I don't remember seeing a setting for that. Perhaps you could try turning off FSD visualization, but I think it may be for something else.

I think it cannot be done. FSD visualization shows the traffic lights, trash cans etc but the basic car display is always present. It is used to highlight risks, for example in lane changes, where the car in your blindspot turns red, that sort of thing.

I understand all the details you mention about the car avatar and how it is used. I like that the car ahead turns read at certain times. And that identified objects appear as I approach them. That is NOT what I'm addressing here. The only thing I have an issue with is the cars and trucks whishing by my car's avatar. That is the thing that is distracting. The fast movement on the screen. That part of the animation should be removed, or at least be able to be turned off.

To each their own.... however I don't see how something that should be well out of your vision while paying attention to the road is "distracting"

This is an easy one. Drive faster.

I agree with you, though. I think the animation is just plain silly. It was impressive during the test drive period, but afterward, pretty useless. I already SEE what's around me, a split second BEFORE it shows up on the screen, including cars that are in my blind spot. Seriously, if I'm concerned about my left side blind spot, why would I look to my right to check it? It makes no sense.

Before and After. Little cardboard cut outs will do the trick. ;)
