      I'd update it. I think they're on UMA2.5 now, with better models (not great, but you seem to have shader coders that could probably do magic with it) and massively updated performance.

        I kind of figured with your background the buildings would be up to spec. :-)
        Yeah I actually bought a very old rental property that used to be a fancy manor that a lawyer operated out of built in 1863 I think that had those radiators in it, and we removed them at the start of the restoration. Pain in the ass but some metal guy came along and chopped them into pieces he could carry and hauled them away for the metal in them.

          Also will it ever become a weigh system before gold?
          No it will stay the same.

            Is it using Binary Serialization?
            Does this have anything to do with the reason UMAplayer is decompressed in one way in asset studio and a custom bundle built with UMA 2 is decompressed with 7zip algorithm?

            Are you using regular asset bundles or the newer addressable bundles?

            Does the shader in the UMA material HAVE to be the same as vanilla (DNS)?
            Many of these things are still hidden in the LoadAssetWithSubAssets_Internal function.
            There is just no feed back from there as to why my bundle won't load.

            I also assume you use a custom bone structure rather then the layout in UMA2 is this correct?
            Nope they look to have the same vertex groups IF:
            Is the bone structure in umaMaleUnified the one you use in game?

            Also many of the zeds have a t pose but the UMA male seems to have an A pose, what do you go off of?
            I have no idea. We modified it so no public version of UMA will match up perfectly.

            We use T pose. Zeds do not use UMA or have anything to do with it, but are just a standard pipeline afaik.

              A19 will bring the game to completion in terms of melee items and firearms. 3 tiers of every weapon archtype.

                No there is the Ak, the assault rifle and the m60, those are your 3 weapons. M60 might get a buff since it will be the end game uber automatic of automatics, Ak might get nerfed to make room for the assault rifle to fit somewhere in between, that is gazz land.

                  I used to fix cars and even though I think had a face shield on, and eye glasses for sure, a piece of metal from grinding flew into my eye and went 7 layers deep, and had to have an eye surgeon remove it. It took 7 days to heal too, a day per layer they said. I don't know how many layers there are but I'm thankful I had a full recovery. It was one of the most miserable weeks of my life, I couldn't read, watch tv or do anything but lay in bed with both eyes shut because opening one eye and blinking, made the other one move around and hurt even worse. So annoying.

                  So sorry about your eye, that ♥♥♥♥ hurts. 7 Days to eye lol.

                    Na, I think we should use the standard autodesk shaders and just use it to build/combine meshes. A few draw calls is way better than building a custom atlas every time you change pants. Use if for the heads, but all clothing / armor would be better off as texture meshes and just add a few draw calls. Much better than having giant bloated atlases per player that cannot be streamed and don't use pbr.

                      Makes sense. I need to learn more about how the texture atlases work.

                        I wish someone would go through the entire thread and take out all of the hints of what the devs say could / might / will and what will not still happen.... and post that in a single summary. Someone who is not me because dammit this is TL:NT (Too Long:No Time)

                              Biggest thing that pisses me off is not really being able to see. The first days or so bright lights sucked. I'm mostly okay with them but I wear uv blocking glasses, but everything's still kinda blurry in that eye and just a little bit ago I posted in Gopher's mod thread not Guppycur's because well, I was able to make out a "G". =)

                                Well, one Going To Happen thing is cleanup on some old stealth system sins.
                                It's just wrong to watch a player perk all into agility for the sneaky stealth... and then use a sledgehammer because that's objectively the best weapon for it.
                                No more, I say! =P
