Absolutely stellar work on 0.47.0

Post by Dellp6 » 17 Dec 2020, 18:12

I've been playing a new save in Tamriel Rebuilt over the last few days on the newest nightly and I just have to say WOW. The new object paging allows grass mods to work flawlessly and the new LOD system expanding the draw distance is such a better implementation than in MGE. No insane pop in like MGE LOD and it generates itself as you move around the world. And best of all it runs so well even at 5 cells draw distance (without shadows). I'm currently running 273 mods and have experienced no issues.

I just have to say thank you to the OpenMW team for their outstanding work. 0.47 is shaping up to be the most exciting release yet from an end user perspective.

100% agree! There are still known issues with optional active grid object paging (e.g. disappearing textures including walls near the fort in Pelagiad), but this release further establishes OpenMW as superior to vanilla Morrowind with ancient hacky workarounds such as MGE. Kudos to all developers!

I haven't booted it up in over a year :(. I Moved and when I finally got my PC put back together I moved on to other things. This reaaaally makes me want to boot it back up though. Plus I just put together a new PC so I can't even imagine where the bottleneck will be at this point.

I started my OpenMW journey with 0.46.0 playing MW for the first time ever a few days ago, but for some reason, I was getting very inconsistent performance with lag and frame drops everywhere, had to downgrade all the settings so that it looked and played like vanilla, which isn't a bad thing as it was so fun that these were only minor annoyances.

I downloaded 0.47.0 today and was completely blown away, I was able to crank everything up to max with all the bells and whistles turned on too, and get stable 59-60 fps even in places where it would sinusoid from 30-60 every few seconds! Plays great, and looks wonderful!
I have no idea what the OpenMW team did between the two versions as I'm no programmer, but EXCELLENT job!
Thanks for all your hard work, and letting a new-comer/outlander experience MW like this!
