Performance and Wuersy

As we had mentioned last Update there has been a major overhaul to the AI and animation system for Parkasaurus that is bringing us one step closer to MODS. Although this work took a bit longer than we anticipated, a benefit is performance improvements for the game. Oh, and we also added a 4th member to the Stegosauria family to even it with the other dino families at 4.

Update:

  • Performance Optimizations
  • Wuerhosaurus
  • IndieDB voting GOTY

Performance Optimizations

If you find performance optimization as interesting as we do – then this is what’s new. First, the guests to your park had a new AI overhaul, so no more standing around figuring out where to go. This originally wasn’t a problem for small parks, but many of you reported guest clumping and lag at higher guest counts. This was a very familiar problem for everyone who achieved Entrance Gate Level 3:


Now our guests are much smarter! Goodbye clumping! (hopefully)


We also decided to go one step farther to change your guests to enter an animation stasis when not on the screen. This combined with a more efficient mesh navigation system should result in performance improvements for many of you. Now, these improvements, in theory, should be more noticeable for those of you who are CPU bottlenecked instead of GPU bottlenecked. Here are some results from running the older version v 0.608 of Parkasaurus versus the new version of v 0.610:


Hopefully, the game feels a little better for you.

Wuerhosaurus

What more can we say! The Stegosauria family was feeling pretty sad with only 3 members – so now everything is even (for now).

Thanks! Oh, and if you’ve made it this far and feel strong enough to toss Parkasaurus a vote for GOTY at IndieDB.

To all you early supporters – thanks a ton. Don’t worry, we’re still thinking of something awesome to give everyone who has helped us in Early Access.

Thanks. xoxo
