¨ALPHA 2 – TEST 3
We’ve mentioned this in the previous post, now it’s official: the start of Alpha 2 – Test 3 has been moved to July due to a few quirks that are making the implementation of player cities and the talent tree more complex than expected.
Some of the issues are performance-related, both in the client and the server:
The client is hit by framerate drops due to the rendering of constructions and calculations of pathfinding in cities;
The server is using way too much bandwidth, which becomes particularly problematic when a lot of players are close to each other.
We have already figured out a solution to all of the issues above – the bandwidth fix actually relies on a “new” feature of SpatialOS we never used. The implementation will take a few days, however.
We hope you’re not too upset by the delay – we could have released the fixes during the test, but we want your experience to be as smooth as possible from the start We’ll let you know the exact starting date as soon as possible.¨
