Avatar Complexity and the servers

Recommended Posts

Yes, it is a shame, and it's not necessary for people who have computers that can handle the graphics load of advanced lighting.  For those with aging machines or laptops that barely meet minimum standards, though, there's little choice.  They either turn advanced lighting off or suffer serious lag and other issues. The best you can do as a designer or landowner is to reduce other load as much as possible (using fewer textures and lower texture resolution, optimizing mesh builds for more efficient rendering of low LOD models, etc.)  Even at that, the graphics load in a large crowd of avatars may still be more than some residents' computers can handle.  There's not much you can do about it.
