Post General Questions for SS Admins.
Quote the person you are answering.
C2 Questions only.

I'll try to keep the initial post updated for the responses from the admins/questions they answered.

My question, though:
If the moving Animation of the ships happens to lag out, or reduce the FPS of the person logged into the client, would it be possible to disable the animation from an Options screen?

You can delete animations by changing the XML in the ships.xml file in your client, it should be possible to do it from options, but meh.

Animated models don't take any more CPU or GPU resources than static models.

So far, it looks like the client is running quite well on low end computers and laptops, and possibly will have even lower minimum system requirements than C1 if you use the lowest settings. If you want even better performance, someone could create a custom "skin" that replaces all models and textures with lower poly models and smaller textures.

for me thats not what slows me down. I have a felling SS isnt using any of my integrated graphics. so i only got like 68mb dedicated. on low i run at 32 fps. on medium i run at 12 :/. but on very high i run at 12 fps. so i got know clue whats added in at medium. but it be cool if you could change stuff your self.

so maybe turn of engine effects but keep high textures and lighting.

In the next two weeks, we're going to try to fix most of the bugs that the current testers have found. After that, I'll decide if we want to start to open up the testing to more people are not, depending on where we are with the current list of bugs. If there are plenty of bugs already reported, then it becomes counter-productive to have more testers.
