Negative thoughts.

Post by Solis » Fri Nov 10, 2017 5:11 pm

The new SA-MP update seems cool but at the same time, shit.

First of all I like to have my game the way I have it, not install some skins from a server. (E.G lspd skins, cars) not only that, if you're in Australia or somewhere far away from the server host. It's going to take a long time to download the models. The reason most people play SA-MP is because of the freedom it has, freedom to mod the game /YOU/ want. I don't see this update as a good thing, what are your thoughts?

They're just adding skins/objects not modding the default ones. No idea about dowload time.

Say you have low poly game and then a server installs some ugly ass hq skins u didn't want. Then what? Is there a "disable feature"?

I think it's painfully clear that LSRP won't be installing any ugly ass hq skins.

But yes there's always going to be some servers that force said modifications I don't think you can do much about it since other players may use hq skins and all you'll see is a blank skin(?) walking about. Of course you don't have to connect to such servers.

LQ skins tend to range between 90kb to 500kb a skin. Of course it adds up when SAMP has allowed a limit of 10k custom skins. I assume with most servers there'll be around at most 15mb of additional resources loaded from the server. So I don't think it'll take that long.

The focus is on low-poly skins only. A low-poly player skin can be 100-400kb a piece. 150 skins at 250kb each is about ~37mb as an example, that's something anybody can download... even with slow Internet. This opens up a tremendous amount of opportunity for role-play and immersion but file size will be kept in mind and the amount you are expected to download will be as noninvasive as possible.

I live in Australia, and I'm eagerly anticipating the new skins. Besides, download speed is not the same as ping.
