New graphical changes are dumb and make no sense

Am I the only one that finds the new graphical changes for explosions , shell hits etc worse than before? Also the visuals for repairing ship. WTF man , who the hell repairs a ship in the middle of battle. That is so dumb. Also fires have been dumbed down, also hits received are minimized in aspect.

Previously when shells hit your ship there was much more visual impact than now. It is  just stupid  , all effects seem to illustrate that the others throw sticks at you rather than heavy shells. This severely impacted my enjoyment in this game.

 

These WG people are a joke ,every change they make are aimed at dumbing down everything. 

 

You get a 10k hit , it feels like you got hit by something insignifiant.  How stupid can you be to add these changes?

Ex. HMS Prince of Wales went into battle with Bismarck in not fully finished state with many technicians still worked on it.

My problem with the graphic changes is that a gaming computer of over 1000 euro can't keep up with them and lags like crazy. Tried to repair the client, still have lag from time to time, so.... Good job wg, next patch you do like this one i will stop play even if i don't want to

I have no problems with performance. My only problem is that it feels so shallow with  visual and sound representation not matching the reality in game. These changes probably were done by people  that don't play this game.

I really like the changes.

Especially very "good" visible torpedos, almost no difference between AP and HE shells and the same shell's trails used both on main guns and secondaries, so You will never know what shells are coming Your way. :cap_haloween:

Don't ask me, ask who made the patch. The computer was formatted just a month ago and its performances with other games are very good

The new effects aren't that of a "WOW" thing. I really wish from WG to improve the lighting and rendering of the sea as it's now looks like Plastic and the islands are really poorly designed and the sky lacks volumetric clouds.

In this case, you might wanna stop musing ANY of the consumeable on your ships.

 

DamaCon partys did NOT fix fires and flooding in an instant.

Repair partys did NOT fix a ship in 20 to 30 seconds.

DEF AA did NOT exist.

MRB did NOT exist.

TRB did NOT exist.

Radar does not see through solid objects like mountains.

Lock On to enhance your accuracy did NOT exist.

 

All that is stupid, pls stop using ALL of those.

 

And when we talk here about "dumbing down", we mean the game mechanics are dumbed down so stupid people can play, i.e. CVs, BBs with overmatch.

 

Not sure how changing graphic effects is dumbing down the game.

I have health-related "issues" and would love to turn the new AA-effects off (Photosensitivity).

It puts a load on me I am not willing to cope with. flashflashflasflash >.<

 

Please WG, give us an "Old-fart-switch" with less graphical bombast.

I have a potato PC as well; today I experienced some very heavy lags (not the usual ones)/FPS-drops and some weird graphics issue. :Smile_sceptic:

@Odo_Toothless one screenshot wouldn´t show "my" problem; what bothers me are the many small flashes that occur everywhere where the AA-guns are. Especially on small ships like destroyers the camera is closer to the ship (especially in torpedo-view) and then the flashes are pretty intensive.

Without screenshot and exactly what effects should be removed i can't help you. It's Your choice. Forget that it will be changed in game or implemented on/off switch.

Try unticking the "animate small objects" (or something like that) and see if it helps.

It think this is clear enough. If not: I can make a SC when in-game, but that won´t happen today.

 

Edit @SV_Kompresor thank you, will try that out.

Very true! I'm saying this since years.

Worst change was the CV change. I.e.: Now even a monkey can play CV and have success that's the reality of WoW !!!

And that's the greatest reason why I uninstalled this game.

Ok. You mean AA tracers. I checked then turning off small object animations do not work for them.

So here is a mod for current version of game, which I've done for You:

 

in [0.10.2.X] OdTo GFX/UI mods

Transparent AA tracers - download

Anti air tracers are transparent except flak bursts.

I can try to ask if we are planning something with photosensitivity issues.

Btw did that unticking of "animate small objects" help somehow?
