I’m aware of the Salome incident but was that a spur the moment thing or was a date and time announced ahead of time?
Usually when developers have a live event for their game they say live event happening on this date at this time..
Ouch. You had to remind everyone, didn't you.Yeah, last time that happened was before EDO dropped..
So Fdev gives PC players the ability to choose to play with 3.8 or 4.0 for free and this is the response?
Maybe it might be best just to wait and see what update 13 brings, rather than make stuff up about it.
It certainly wouldn't do for the doom people to burn themselves out before the main event.
Forum traditions and all of that.
The game is still being developed, of course all the current versions will be superseded by a newer one. How can that be a shock or surprise? I can't wait for Odyssey to be the new 3.8 when V5.0 comes out...the stragglers who are holding on to 3.8 dont see this as a choice so much as a first step toward being dragged into 4.0. Their opposition of such a step needs to come before it's already done ...so you're getting negative feedback about it for that reason.
and I think if the inevitable conclusion is getting all clients on 4.0 to realize development savings and reduced overhead in maintenance, i dont see why this is being positioned as a choice and not just for what it is, a temporary option so non-odyssey players can get used to the new UI and differences in performance and behavior.

I'll admit to being curious to see if 4.0 client has the 30% FPS drop in Horizons that it does in Odyssey - which, of course, assumes that U13 hasn't brought any 'substantial' improvements to performance, like sorting out the allegededly dreadful mess the shaders are in.Nobody is making stuff up and there’s no mystery about what 4.0 does, it’s been around since EDO released.
There has been quite a lot of conjecture about what it will and won't be.Nobody is making stuff up and there’s no mystery about what 4.0 does, it’s been around since EDO released.
Remember, U13 won't be bringing the Hor 4.0 option. That will come "some weeks after".There has been quite a lot of conjecture about what it will and won't be.
Best just to wait for it, it's only a few days away unless Ratty's overly doomy prophesy comes true.
I'm just happy they're continuing to work on it tbh.
U13 is only a few days away, V4.0 Horizons follows later - I assume to be just in time for the console transfers, which are only a few weeks away, after all.Best just to wait for it, it's only a few days away unless Ratty's overly doomy prophesy comes true.
When I ran 4.0 in SeasonOne (ED) and SeasonTwo (EDH) modes a while ago, it ran no different to Odyssey - maybe ED mode was a bit faster, as it doesn't render landables as actual planets, and just used the billboarded sprite method used for non-landables. So I have fairly great reason to suspect it'll run the same...I expect it to, but would still prefer to see it myself, rather than assume the worst
