Hello fellow Tankers :honoring:

 

I just played on all the 12 new HD maps for the people which do not have Sandbox access, once in Ultra graphic settings and once in the minimal one. Cropping the videos together you get a splitscreen experience. Sadly I have to say that the minimal video lags / jitters behind because it being a Replay, I am sorry for that. Nevertheless it should give you a good overview whats the difference between those settings.

 

Have fun:

Thanks a lot, been waiting for something like this, and it's really interesting to see it side-by-side.

 

I'm guessing the 'standard' render was removed from the sandbox client?

That's the best water I have seen in a game until now.

not every one has the money to spend on a PC, and the minimum graphics are actually worse then the current ones for some reason.

Doesn't cost much at all for a pc that can play this at medium - high settings and they can use their existing monitor etc.

People who can't afford £200-£300 (if that) every 5 years should just accept that PC gaming moves on and their hardware will stop being supported.

 

Hell, the 2nd hand market is dirt cheap, less than £150 could get what's needed to play at least medium settings

That is really nice work. Thx OP.
The new maps look amazing, even on low setting.

I did notice, on the Mine map, that on the middle hill, where there use to be a low building, there now is a ruin. Did you spot any other change on the other maps that made you go: Hmm..?

They seem to have fixed the infamous Sand River rocks which currently don't exist on the standard render and often leave players stranded.

Therer where rocks which you couldn't see when you play on low settings?
Like I knew that terrain could be alternated if it is on minimum and some shots would be stuck in invisible terrain which is simply not moddeled.

Why is that a problem? If your PC can handle a medium setting with the new graphics to satisfaction, then just do that?

According to the devs the new HD graphics do not require all that much more of your gpu than the current graphics...

Yep, Sand River was the worst for it.  There's half a dozen or so posts on the forum complaining, usually about this rock.

(it's by the encounter cap circle)

The person complaining just saw his tank suspended in mid air.
