Release Notes[edit]


  • Texture Compositor
    • Optimized texture generation by giving composite textures destined for models that are already rendering higher priority in the generation queue.
    • Added a trailing cache of composite inputs, designed to optimize composite generation for sequences of similar jobs.
    • More asynchronous texture requests are allowed per cycle, allowing composites to generate faster on some systems.
  • Texture Streaming
    • Added an experimental graphics setting; ‘Texture Streaming’ in video options. Texture streaming allows the game to defer loading of high-resolution textures until they are needed for rendering, potentially saving a significant amount of video memory. On systems with slower disk access, streaming textures may be momentarily visible.
