Current cloud tech is still in active development and not yet final. There’s ongoing work on SDF occlusion which should help alleviate the graphical artifacting (visual dots in the clouds). Additionally, we are working towards having local VFX for the clouds (similar to the gas clouds around rest stops) which will make a big difference in overall quality.

  • Crusader
  • Orison Landing Zone
  • Constellation Taurus
  • Law System v2: Surrender

Known Issues

  • Gas Clouds on Crusader appear to have moving graphical artifacts that appear as dots. Current clouds are still in development and not final. See note at the top of patch notes.

  • QT from Port Olisar to Comm Array ST2-55 will cause ship to QT to a different direction
  • Assets such as Elevators or Environment content will occasionally be missing in the PU. These assets take time to load in for clients causing players to fall through Elevators or being unable to leave locations
