Regarding to this video:

We will be having 12 of these HD maps to the Sandbox Server, yaay!

 

However, there are 35 maps in total in the game and it is kind of disappointing that only 12 maps are ready. But I strongly believe these aren't all of the maps that are ready to get unleashed and that the community would appreciate to see the list of completed, almost completed and work-on-progress maps.

If possible, could some of the developers post the current information here? :popcorn:

We are also introducing a new pre-set called “Ultra” for high end PCs, where we only recommend players will high end graphics card (e.g. 1060 or + level) to run this graphic pre-set.

Well in the Q&A that CC visiting WG recently had to test the new maps... They did say they had maps they did not even consider giving the HD workout, because they don't know if they should remove or fix them. Stalingrad and Kharkov was mentioned as two of those. Then other duplicates are getting removed like Winter Himmelsdorf, and won't get an HD version. But Fiery Salient is staying. Fisherman Bay, Erlenberg and Fjords are getting major reworks in terms of how the lay of the land will be apparently. They also did mention that boosting spots are removed on HD maps.

 

They also said they use at least 2 months pr map pr team. So then you understand why there are "only" 12.

yes WG the Sudan is oriental. I am starting to think Belarus is a slightly colder version of NK.

If they would just outsource the project to India, they would get the whole thing done in a fortnight, for fifty quid and three bars of chocolate. Indian software engineers are mostly teatotal, albeit a bit susceptible to diabetes.

"This year we won't have any new maps as we have to convert the old crappy ones to HD that almost no-one asked for. Anyway, closing a year now, here's 12 of them. We are a bit behind so don't be expecting new maps next year either."

 

"Oh, and btw, here's a new premium tank."

Aside from a few outlying anomalies Indians are 10 years behind in their ability to develop and programme entertainment software.

 

Have you seen Bollywood CGI?

 

Yes it would be done in a fortnight but we would all be playing bhangra bhangra

Server is still not up though so we can't test anything yet. Was kinda hoping it would be up when the update went live.

You could install and configure

https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner

 

The beta version

I have installed it to see if my system will run HD Maps or i need to spend on upgrades.

 

I use:-

 

Go settings-----Monitoring  and set up any parameters you want to see for on screen display

 

 

GPU Temp

GPU 1 Usage

GPU 1 Memory usage

CPU 1 Usage

Ram Usage

FPS

 

These are just the basics to see if the CPU or GPU are over temping, running out of head room, Or CPU, GPU ram is being completely used up.

Really hope someone with a more potato PC is also going tot test SB.

By potato I mean systems with an older quadcore, like an Intel's 1st gen 'i7' series or a higher end AMD X4 9xx /X6 10xx. Video card wise...dunno somethings that can run it at 60+ fps in the current old engine.

Do you have fps decrease when intense fight happens?

Maps are not ready if they are on sandbox server.

Those maps are "ready" when live server gets it.

 

And the fact this game is still in beta stage the maps will never be ready.

Not really. On some maps a slight decrease but it never drops below 70fps.
