the new textures for the gens we got in the blight chapter are now much lower quality then they were then, now the words on the gens like the caution sign aren't even legible. I am running my game on max settings currently
Most likely to do with optimization. However, generator pistons were lower quality for some time, and only recently were restored back to using LOD-1, rather than LOD-2. So, it's quite possible that the lower resolution generator textures is a bug.
I will provide pictures if asked
I'm almost certain it was done to compensate for the new generator animations.
no I mean "since the blight chapter", the new textures themselves have been downgraded since then. when they were first added they were high quality but now they seem to have been lowered for whatever reason
k thank you dude, also what is "LOD-1 and 2?
Level of Detail. It's what games use to optimize far away assets. For example, you have a car in the distance. The further away the player is from said car, the fewer polygons are used to make up the object, as there is no point rendering something so far away at full quality. The issue with the generator pistons was that an LOD that should've been updated to be higher quality when closer up, was not updating.
oooooh, I see thanks alot dude. this kinda cleared things up for me, it would be cool if I could mess around with the files somehow to fix it, I've done it on other games kinda
