OCS in and 130fps confirmed!

https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/9m8094/133_stable_fps_boyys_the_new_age_is_comming/

I'll have to buy a new monitor with a refresh rate high to handle the performance I don't miss single pixel as I clip through the floor.

new user/low karma - best to just lol and move on

- Ryzen 7 1700X with a 1070Ti and 32GB RAM
- 1 client on server instance
- running around a barren surface with procgen rocks

Yeah, OCS + NBC is totally working

Thing is that, so far, NONE of the new planet stuff has leaked because 3.3.5 NEVER went to Evocati. They just used that 3.3 <-> 3.3.5 split to generate hype ahead of ShitizenCon.

And now they claim to have moved some 3.3.5 tasks back into 3.3, which they will release live this week. Which means that the planets remain in 3.3.5 for a later date.

I can guess precisely what they're going to do next. If they release 3.3 - which is already a disaster even with OCS+NBC - that's going to be their excuse for holding off on 3.3.5 until next year. Right now, 3.3 is an absolute disaster (performance, crashes, new hilarious bugs etc) that's even worse than 3.0 (Dec 2017) and that's going to be their benchmark and excuse "We have to fix OCS + NBC + stability + performance before we can add planets" to delay 3.3.5. Then again, if they're dumb enough, they will release it for the Dec holiday stream.

I can say one thing with certainty - and this comes from multiple credible sources - 3.3 is an absolute disaster and there is no way they can fix it before year end. They may end up rolling back OCS+NBC even.

We also noticed that while they have filed financials for the RSI shell company, they are now late on filing financials for CIG. They probably won't file either until after ShitizenCon, or after the holiday stream because I believe it's bad enough that they don't want me writing about it as I normally would, and freaking out the tribe.

So, ShitizenCon will be an absolute nightmare. But what will happen then? Will CIG collapse or does it take even more?

Are there any rumours about what new shiny thing Chris will be showing off - if any.

I'm still confused about why Chris is doing the keynote first - unless he's showing off the shiny stuff at the end.

Hopefully the human torpedo which would probably get me back to funding the game.

The shiny stuff always goes with the keynote. I think they did it this way because of the other presentations (distractions) they have going on a different stage.

I cannot fathom why the have so collision and character malfunction at this point. Certainly not seeing the bug smashers as they have dropped off the radar as well. I wonder if the poached employees or anyone with crytech skills is still there?

That was hilarious. I thought he was just going to die, instead he gets boneitis.

I wonder if that's the new inverse kinematics system malfunctioning in hilarious ways.

No clue what's going there; but from the looks of it, they haven't yet sorted out the portals for the doorway. So he can't enter it without triggering a collision. The subsequent character boneitis is just an after effect.

Just on a technical point of interest: you refer to a portal for the doorway - what do you mean by that?

"portal" (assuming that's how they're doing it) is a dev term.  Check Google as I don't have time to write a book on it.

+1 and I want to hear about zone culling for clothing, after seeing that I'm ready to break out the cc.
Plus all the other exciting tech like the online rigs, houdini volumetric clouds.

heh, I wasn't brushing him off. The info is on Google and there is no short explanation for it. So why waste my time when someone else has already done the work?  :emot-science:
