v2.0 [dev test and development for now]

#1
Hi all,

Trying to put a stable release together.. would appreciate if you could use the poll buttons above let us know whether there are significant bugs in the v2.0 build... or whether you would be happy for it to go to stable at this point.

I've changed the graphical settings in this minipatch so that it is clear what they mean:
1) Half texture resolution
2) Simple
3) Full
4) Full Plus Shadows

Shadows are a large source of lag so you might be much happier with Full rather than Full Plus Shadows.
I also fixed an issue with cram barrels getting heavier and heavier

I also made it so that an inertial fused hesh going off on a shield cannot create spalling on the vehicle.. which was an artefact of the last minipatch...

-Huge/Cram muzzle flash scaling set
-Cram firing prefab and scaling
-huge muzzle flash updates
-Cram Variable declaration cleanup
-muzzle flash prefabs to world space
-muzzle flash tweaks

Added:
-Small, Medium, Large, Huge explosions with 3 variant Particle Effects Prefabs

-underwater ambient sound (just the .wav ; waiting on muzzle flash stuff to be done before updating the world scene prefab with code)
-Laser firing effects added- particle, light, lensflare
-Particle cannon firing effects

I still having a lot "flickering" in the game
Is it maybe an SLI-problem?

I can't test it now I'm at work

The flickering is in the shadows? It's actually a unity 5 issue.. unity 5, for some reason, has MORE float precision issues than unity 4... which means that as you fly away from the origin of the unity game world stuff starts to flicker. There is a solution if I add a roaming origin that moves every time the camera moves 2 or 3 km... but that's going to be a lot of work...

Still got lots of bugs with wheels, if you didn't know vehicle bounces a lot when going faster than 10m/s

Edit: and there's still werid glitchy textures for no reasons sometime, so still a lot to do

yeah the flickering is really noticeable on large vehicles (around 20k volume) just built a small drone and i cant see any flickering.

Yeah I've just noticed it's got an issue in it... basically the settings are 0 to 3 and the slider does 1 to 4... so yeah I need to re-release..
