Please improve textures / vegetation Alpha option missing from graphic settings menu

What an amazing job you guys! I'm so happy with this update, with 1000+ hours Rome 2 is without doubt my favorite Total war!

Graphically speaking, the new update made the game look much better than before but the textures feel downgraded, I mean they don't look like they should on higher settings, specially noticeable on armors and shields were you can clearly tell they are rather low resolution textures:



You can clearly see the low resolution specially on roman units, another problem is not only the textures but also glinting on all the armors and weapons of all the units in game, they do glint but is barely noticeable, brass helmets, iron helmets, lorica segmentatas, swords, axes, spears, scale armor, they all need more glinting, before the update there was more glinting.

Here are some examples of how the texture should look like on the highest setting:








You can clearly see the difference. Armors and shields are more dirty and the textures look more realistic making the metal pieces look far better!

Here is an actual in gameplay screenshot of the game before it came out, you can see the same HD textures as the ones above:


Also, the option for Vegetation Alpha on/off is missing from the graphics menu.

Please consider this for the next update/patch.
Thank you very much for your attention!

    That would really complete the graphical update. It could just be available as a High res DLC, or as an option so it doesn't affect users with low performance PCs

    The Vegetation Alpha option is still there; it's in the Advanced Options menu.

    @Migz are you sure? I don't see it, it's missing for me, I know it's supposed to be on the advanced options menu, could you tell me where exactly does it appear for you in the advance menu?

    My apologies. It was there in the Beta but is indeed gone from the release version.

    That said though, I think that it must be either linked to another setting or else is on by default, because I feel certain that the foliage is translucent on Extreme settings.
