there is a thread in Machinima forum about this viewer I thought Id post here, I been running it through its paces last few days, I'd like to know for given the same settings how it is performing so much better than Firestorm in terms of scene loading and FPS gains. I have observed the LOD is rather low by default - you see some mesh items deform rather quickly when the camera is pulled back some and FS has a checkbox in Phototools to disable Dynamic Draw which in this viewer is on by default and only able to turn off via debug settings

but overall I have been seeing FPS rates at least 2-5x that of Firestorm. The UI is more a fancy linden viewer not really impressed with that, but I do wonder how it is able to perform so well

Less options

Aha! Is that a confession that you code those "more options" to impact the overall performance when they really shouldn't?

I knew it.

Now this quote i'll print and frame it and every time someone asks why the performance is better i'll give them a copy of this print. Completely ignoring the fact that something like optimizing exists. And whenever someone praises the improved performance but demands more features i'll bring them back here telling them that they can either choose between the improved performance they praised so much or the extra features they want.

Do what you wanna do. Since people on the Firestorm team have actual jobs and cannot spend 8+ hours a day of fiddling with the viewer and start from scratch if one of those optimizations leaves the viewer in a broken beyond repair state as already happened with Alchemy. And yes, some options do have an impact on performance.

Que bueno sería también que los visores incluyenran la opción en varios idiomas, ya que somos muchos por ejemplo de habla hispana que los usamos (así como otros idiomas). 

Ojalá que mi cita también se lea y la enmarquen para tenerla en cuenta ... también 😊

Lo sabía.

Ahora, esta cita la imprimiré y enmarcaré, y cada vez que alguien pregunte por qué el rendimiento es mejor, les daré una copia de esta impresión. Ignorando por completo el hecho de que existe algo como la optimización. Y cada vez que alguien elogia el rendimiento mejorado pero exige más funciones, los traeré de vuelta aquí y les diré que pueden elegir entre el rendimiento mejorado que tanto elogiaron o las características adicionales que desean.

 Saludos. Si alguien colabora haciendo las traducciones, estaría usted dispuesto a incorporarlas en el visor?
