Spent a few days in EXP to review progress with vehicles. This is our second round in EXP .61.
What we found:
- While not perfect, the vehicles can be driven past each other without launching or pushing
- Improvement on truck is dramatic, most improved vehicle
However, we found the following:
- Sound is insanely loud still and the 4X4 still will go into the buzz, silence, buzz at a rapid rate when going fast
- Serious memory problems, (that is my opinion), occur when driving vehicles for a long distance. I can start out at 26-27 FPS, (normal game FPS is 25-35). However, as I drive, the vehicle gets buggier and my FPS slowly drops to 3-4 FPS and the vehicle becomes uncontrollable. My friend's computer drops to the same FPS driving and his video memory is three times as much as mine and his system memory is double mine. He was driving the truck and zombies were floating above it, walking through it, etc. Our progress was limited to 8km even down hill. I tried driving and it refused to go over 5KM with all the zombies on it - it was faster running
Restarting my computer improved the FPS, but it would drop as I drove. Its like the server is not clearing out junk of the player's computer/graphic card memory and it seems the zombie animation on vehicles makes it worse.
