Less is More
« on: October 29, 2016, 05:42:39 PM »
We've not shown too many individual screenshots lately, however there's a lot going on behind the scenes. We've had a lot of focus recently on updating some of the older content, including putting some of our newer Ascendancy assets into ICW (including the Venator, Acclamator, TIE Fighters, ISDs, etc), on top of reworking some particles and the skydomes in the mod. These aren't just meant to look better; they also have a net decrease in polies, particles, and filesize, meaning better visuals, better performance, and better load times.

I also have a YouTube channel where I talk about mod development and gaming, do tutorials, and Let's Plays. If you like the content, consider supporting it on Patreon

It looks nice and crispy. :)
People Live their Lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That is how they define "Reality" . But what does it mean to be "correct" or "true"? They are merely vague concepts... Their "Reality" may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to be simply living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?"

IIRC, turreted hardpoints are, along with deathclones and other such minutia, queued for later work after updates on the GCs, heroes, models, etc. I could be wrong but I remember hearing that from Corey or someone somewhere.
"The Empire that Senior Captain Thrawn is carving into the evil that pervades our worlds is not the Empire you chose to leave. His is an Empire of justice and dignity for all beings. His Empire is one we gladly serve. One we are willing to die for."

Death clones and damage particles are things we're working on, but we have no current plans to do rotating turrets. That's a ton of extra stuff for the CPU to track and ultimately would be a significant drain on performance. We'd have to test it a lot more before we were comfortable doing that (it may not seem like a big deal, but when you have multiple ships onscreen with multiple tracking turrets, especially some of the Fractalsponge designs like the Bellator or Praetor where there's literally dozens per ship, it adds up quickly).
