My point was that at the moment you can fly around at a hundred feet or so like it's a flying car instead of a hover bike.

I see. I'm imagining it more like the personel vehicles in Star Wars, where the vehicles are also not bound to ride max 20m above the ground, but are required to fly thousands of meters above it to reach the higher living quarters.

      A 7:36 minutes jump from Port Olisar to Hurston, a fly over the city that ends in pilot error... lol.

      If you haven't seen it yet, (I believe) this is the first FPS mission that has been put into the game. I recorded it as CIG wanted feedback on the mission, the AI, and Kareah, but I thought I'd share it here in case you haven't seen it yet. AI behavior leaves a lot to be desired, but it's a step in the right direction.

      Didn't see a topic on the subject so just thought I'd throw it out there --
      3.3's coming with a really awesome new feature called Object Container Streaming. In a nutshell, this is the godsend that those of us with limited stocks of RAM have been asking for.
      Basically, it helps out a lot with one of the biggest issues plaguing SC in terms of performance, and that is the presence of too many objects. This issue is (one) of the reasons that a lot of people (me) experience a lot better framerate in Arena Commander than in the PU... the client in <3.2 needs to load pretty much all objects in the immediate container simultaneously. A container could be as large as a solar system for reference (it is the object that holds all other objects, such as ships, stations, planets, ships on planets, people in stations, etc. inside of it, that the client needs to track... you can see why it's a drain on RAM)
      OCS migitates this issue by offloading objects on the client's RAM to the server, as much as possible. So, if you jump from one planet to another, all objects tracked in the previous planet would then be offloaded from your computer back onto the server, while the server then will send you the new entities present at the next planet... RAM doesn't have to track both objects simultaneously.
      Something else noted in the OCS RTV -- something called distance offloading -- an object will offload (roughly) at x distance times y size. Meaning, objects will be offloaded in a similar fashion described above if they are beyond your perceptual radius. For instance, if travelling away from a planet in SCM, with a small ship (i.e. an Aurora) and a large ship (i.e. Constellation) right at your departure point, the Aurora will be offloaded  first (as it vanishes beyond the radius of your view), the Constellation second, and then the planet eventually (though it would take a ridiculously long time)
      TL;DR it is a huge performance upgrade that should really help out with the game's voracious RAM appetite 😊
      (edit: What to expect from OCS/ABS in 3.3 (FAQ/Guide) here's a nice and pretty forums thread about it by RSI @UrsaPolaris)
    • By Dabclipers
      I realize that likely nobody knows the exact time it's going live, but I was wondering when everyone thinks we can expect 3.3 to hit the servers?  I was under the impression it was supposed to be available yesterday.
