Well I am 5 hours in to the new Update and I had to stop to write this because I am so impressed. In a word, wow. Well done devs. I figured you all could use some positive reinforcement because you are headed in the RIGHT direction. I am very very impressed by this update. And a word to those players who were taking a break from the game. Come back! This update rox!
The moment I logged in, my first thought was, wow nice graphics update. The optimization is super. I can finally fun at a 60 fps with no significant drop of rate ever (and this is ultimate everything in 2k) It feels so smooth now.
The planetary rotations and lod look amazing. It really feels like you are in a solar system now.
I love harvesting plants and cooking!!!
Crafting got even better!
Textures are crisp!
No more rubberbanding on ping loss for me!!!
Atlases are fun to craft and use. *(only down side here is that allowing players to purchase completed atlases in the economy is almost like activating a cheat code, too OP)
I can send private messages (whispers)! Thank you thank you thank you.
Gatherers are relevant again/ hunters are not so OP.
I am sure I have forgotten some brags. But I just had to come post right quick. I am so excited. This game is only getting better and your dev think tanks are working! Keep up the good work. This game is going to break records!
