  2. Thread: Re-implement ultra textures setting. in UI, Art, Sound, & FX Discussion

  3. #7
    No, we never had ultra settings for textures. We used to have low, medium and high. Very high got added not too long ago. It only changes the quality of character textures excluding ornaments (hats, visual progression).

    Texture quality only has a minor impact on performance.

    The game should look the same, no matter whether you are installing those textures or not. If they are not installed, the game is supposed to download them and cache them locally. This usually happens within a few seconds. If you have a good internet connection and low ping, it's not even noticeable.

    If you are seeing a difference (and I'm not arguing with that), it means that this system doesn't work for you. It's not a matter of an ultra quality setting. I'm aware that many people have this streaming issue. I've been redoing virtual texture streaming in the last two weeks and even though I can't reproduce the issue, I'm confident that I may have fixed it. At the very least there will be a ton of extra logging and debugging capabilities (and performance improvements), so that we should be able to track it down.

  7. Yeah there are ~70ish people that had this issue, we're going to get those people their extra Titan Token. I asked Brogrammer to review his script and he said that it should be working fine as of today.

    • Hardcore Operations sollten nun korrekt epische oder Prototyp-Ausrüstung Belohnungen nach erfolgreichem Abschluss gewähren.
    • Ein neues Script, um alle alten, gesockelten Module wiederherzustellen wurde gestartet. Spieler sollten nun alles vollzählig beim Login erhalten.*
    • Beim Login* sollten Spieler nun für jeden Scorcher, Demolition, Draconis, oder Bane Chitin core (im Besitz vor Update 1.6) eine epische Kiste mit Ausrüstung bekommen.
      • Jede Kiste gewährt folgende Items: Granate, Medical System, Operating System, Kopf, Torso, Reactor, Arme, und Beine.
      • Diese Kisten sind gewichtslos.
    • Beim Login* sollten Spieler nun zwei Titan Tokens pro Kanaloa Waffe (vor 1.6 im Besitz) erhalten.
      • Alle verbliebenen Kanaloa-Primärwaffen werden nun für 1 Titan Token recycelt.
      • Wir raten allen Spielern drigend, sich auch entsprechend Items mit Titan Tokens zu kaufen, bevor sie weitere Kanaloa-Waffen recyceln, damit sie auch wieder unter dem maximalen Limit von 8 Titan Tokens sind.
    • Es wurden einige Verbesserungen an Zone-Transfers vorgenommen. Dadurch sollten Spieler nun keine Probleme mehr haben, wenn sie in eine neue Zone übertreten bei der Nutzung von /joinleader oder wenn sie Instanzen beitreten oder sie verlassen.
    * Um die Performace für das "Give You Stuff Script 2.0" zu verbessern, packen wir Spieler erst beim Login in eine Warteschlange für das Script. Für euch startet das Script also erst, wenn ihr euch aktiv einloggt und im Hintergrund arbeitet ein tapferes Schneiderlein daran, euch eure Items wiederzugeben. Die Items erhaltet ihr dann egal ob ihr online oder offline seid. Euer Platz in der Warteschlange hängt von eurem ersten Login nach diesem Patch ab.

    Can you list me some specifics? As far as I'm aware the only thing that we have is the migration, which I communicated immediately about (and also mentioned multiple times that this is not tied to a client patch). Well, that and someone sneaking in giving people more blue loadouts with the intent of giving everyone more salvage fodder for parts.

    Just to repeat from earlier, I can't stress this enough - this is why you are not seeing all of your modules yet.

    Thanks for the very detailed information, Lou. The rate of fire and charge speed stats directly affect the weapon simulation, so in my mind those are the most suspicious.

    If anyone else still has this problem with 100% consistency, please let me know so I can take a snapshot of your character. If the particular combination of gear and upgrades is causing a problem, I may be able to use that snapshot to find out why.
