Summed up nicely ubermick for me.
I'm not a programmer and probably just a silly comment, but could it be that these checks are taken out to increase performance?
It is possible for many - I get between 40 and 50 fps in surface combat zone - don't assume your experience applies to all. It is the fact that some people have fps issues and some don't is what is making these sort of issues so difficult to fix.I must say, it is dissapointing that it is still not possible to play CZ on foot with acceptable shooter-fps (Edit: with a 1.300,00 EUR 3080RTX Card). I really had hope for this week, now this delay. Mh :/
Sally, have you thought about starting a new thread just called 'Odyssey Whining ats?' where folk can post the same old, tired whinging salty arguments time and again and leave the bulletin updates for others who know the state of play, know Fdev are doing their best to remedy it and who are still having a damn good time with EDO anyway.
Yeah that's fair.True enough. There are posters on here who are fairly consistently negative about the game at the moment (I'd count you as one of them, not having a dig) BUT more or less everything they say is completely valid, accurate, and understandable. (Again, I'd think you're in that camp - no probs at all).
Its the people who incessantly post about the same topic over and over, often ones that have been addressed. Take framerates - everyone here KNOWS its an issue, nobody's argued its not. Frontier has ACKNOWLEDGED its an issue. They've updated us that the work on it is ONGOING but will likely extend past the next few updates. But STILL people will respond to every update from the community managers complaining about them. Similar thing about the planetary tiling - every time there was an update, there was yet another new thread highlighting how tiling is ruining the game. Ship interiors. We know, we get it, nobody DOESN'T want ship interiors (some would argue its not a priority, but I don't think there's a single ED player who wouldn't want the chance to walk around their ship at least once or twice). And of course there are the threads - often times from accounts started after Odyssey's launch - announcing that the game is dead, FDev are awful, Braben is evil incarnate, why are Frontier even trying to fix such a broken load of rubbish, etc.
I dunno. There are glass is half full people on here. Glass is half empty people on here. Neither of which I have issue wilth.
It's the "Ermagerd, I'm sick of this glass, you people need to understand how awful this glass is, the glass was created by awful people and could actually kill you... now that I mention it, I dunno why ANYONE likes glass - especially this glass. Everyone should drink from this completely different container that I personally like and if you don't agree with what I'm saying then you're a sheep or maybe an employee of the glass company" ones that do my head in. (And conversely, the "Nope, this glass is flawless crystal and we should all be honoured to drink from it" people - although they're far rarer these days!)
Nah. Ignoring people who don't think the way we do is how the world got into the "with me or against me" mess its currently in. Sometimes I might not enjoy it, but I still find it necessary.The obvious action to take would be to make use of the ignore function.
The other thing so many seem to forget that there are differences between us finding and reporting a bug, the teams confirming that bug exists as we claimed and being able to reproduce it, with the biggest difference being between knowing what is happening with the bug and knowing what has caused it and therefore what the fix will be.I am so sorry at how often I need to remind people that not everyone on a team/in a studio is capable of fixing any issue.
The developer's nightmare bug. Broken for many/most/all customers, works for the developer.A couple of years ago there was a long running lighting/texture bug that was easy to spot in the game for the players but didn't happen on the developers machines with the analytic software on board.
Possibly because almost everything in the game can influence everything else, and this way has been deemed by the senior developers and coders as being the best way to do it.But then why can't the rest go ahead as planned? Why does the Update have to wait for this patch? I'm not a developer or coder so how would I possibly know but it does seem unusual.
As a pessimistic eejit myself, I really don't understand all the hubbub this thread has generated. Shouldn't people be HAPPY that Frontier is taking a few extra days to fix another serious bug?The irony of me being slapped with the white knight tag myself is that I'm normally a fairly pessimistic eejit.
This is why it would greatly help if a few of the devs would play the game at home as much as the community does. i know this sounds like taking work home with you and if it was me it would be the last thing I would want to do but according to some members in the CM team they DO apparently like to play it in their free time.. would be good if they had more people testing it from external sources as some of the bugs that we the playerbase see so readily and have for years like the cargo not ejecting etc. took years to even be acknowledged as a problem.The other thing so many seem to forget that there are differences between us finding and reporting a bug, the teams confirming that bug exists as we claimed and being able to reproduce it, with the biggest difference being between knowing what is happening with the bug and knowing what has caused it and therefore what the fix will be.
