Cliff is about to bestow upon us a great power over GSB. I would venture to say that he has not granted this ability lightly as it conflicts with his prime directive of ensuring the utmost performance from his programs
In a previous post Cliff highlighted the pitfall of this option as it would hinder the performance of the game.
So I say to the modding community - With Great Power comes Great Responsibility.
Dont go and make a 2mb newbullet.dds file and place it in a mod because you can.
Please exercise some restraint when you use this option by considering the impact on GSB when people run your mod.
Yep, and sadly PI is not the exception, there are around 2 or 3 Fx that needs high resolution due its size, like the Rift gen… it is the biggest with 1,70 Mb, and i hope that it will the biggest Fx… no more.
All the others have less than 300Kb cuz i already have the system requeriments in mind, cuz i have a second and less equiped pc for use as example, thanks to that, i’m making Fx that can be run as normal Fx ^^
Lets see what happens with Bullets, since they should be smaller than a beam Fx, i hope that would be the same with the size.
All the others
