They aren't perfect, but I think they are better. I haven't seen a ton of huge drop offs or massive walls blocking things. We will improve them.

 

Love the new pic MM. Really looking forward to playing tonight!

so is a way to improve fs? i cannot play at 5-10 fs. Oddly my rig is that old, but the game without zombies on i can't even get over 23 fs. is there an option I should shut off to help?

People of your age shouldn't be making these inappropriate jokes anymore, mister!

 

Unlike most 53 year olds my performance is still quite vigorous. Lesson learned: Eat organic paleo diet, workout and do cardio or feel like crap and fall apart like every other old person.

Intrigue! Can you tell us what you found? I have a potato laptop, went from 35ish in A16.x to 25ish in A17.4. Now down to 5-7 in A18 . No money for a gaming rig. Any performance improvement is a god send for me.

 

We're pooling up every model at startup, even the unused raft has 25 copies spawned at startup to "be ready to spawn". Not sure how much performance this can cause, but all that texture memory and ram could be freed.

Are you referring to the restart your game that you stated previously, or alluding to something on the code / game side?

 

See my previous post.

I only played through to finding the Trader due to work but first impressions:

-- new graphics are nice and detailed

-- the spear rocks - my new favorite so far.

-- thanks for changing the starter quest to reduced frames, fiber, clothing, etc.

-- Buzzards are more aggressive and fun.

 

I have lots of new loot to figure out. back online later - just getting one of my servers running "ZombieLand Texas - Default level"

 

Streamlining being well received for a change :)

How could all those Streamers miss something like this :D

 

They weren't trying to play the game on a laptop.....? ;)

It seemed like the streamers were getting really good graphics quality and framerate, now I hear people saying that it's really bad, what's going on with this build?

I'm also getting these messages on the console: ""Detail rendering shaders not found for the active rendering pileline, falling back to default shader" Could this be reducing FPS? Maybe a quick hotfix is needed.

 

Aside from this, the build plays great! Thank you TFP for your work.

So far, exluding fps problems (few settings lowered or off) this is no doubt the best release.

 

Pimps, keep kickin ass, game is getting greater guys. You are definitely on the right way.

 

The new RWG map that I made (from the first try) guys...I am in love, spent all time wandering and exploring. First game will be nomad for sure, it is worth a lot.

So good, the guns feel grand !

 

Wish kind of we had a lean mechanic so I could peep behind walls etc... ;)

 

My RWG map is great, looks gorgous...

 

 

 

I noticed the AA I have on in game yet seeing some serious jaggies.... and reason ?

There was a suggestion upthread that some streamers are having problems with the current build. Unfortunately the claim was not supported by any references to any particular streamers. So this may be entirely unsubstantiated.

Recent reviews on Steam are going into the 'mixed' range.. Hmm.. Here's to hoping there's a quick hotfix to the FPS problems. Else the soft landing will not be soft.

Not enough rocks in them I guess...

Not enough rocks in the game! I miss those big surface boulders!

I'm seeing quite a lot of raised roads on the side of a mountain/hill. So not only the road-blocks themself, but also the underlying block. It's not all the time though! And there are quite some beautiful vistas in the game!

Working out + good diet, and keeping stress down is the fountain of youth.

I'm having 40 fps outside (most settings maxed), which is good in my book. Less than A17, but the picture is awesome, love the hi-res textures, everything looks so crisp. With all that talk of thinning zeds, I was afraid to see empty world, but I was wrong, if anything zeds keep me on my toes. Already met a bear and some dog (coyote?), didn't have time to look, was busy running away :)

 

Thank you TFP, it is good to be home again!

Ah I deal with enough paleo crap in my line of work (Geologist)!

 

But happy birthday man! I hope you have a good day (besides the 7D2D thing).. Hope you got some nice presents from family/friends!

And lots of boating. Is your new avatar a hint for A19....? :) :) :)

 

 

Happy Birthday as well!

I noticed some icons have changed (like the wood and plant fibers) and I highly approve!
