Quick Question on 4.4

Recommended Posts

By only installing the client, what would I miss out on by not doing content and scenery?  I wasn't sure if any of that PBR stuff or any of the "cool" new features are in content or scenery.  I am always hesitant when doing these installs because I am afraid that I will lose addons by doing the content or scenery.  However, if there is a must have within those files, than I'd want to know.  Thanks!

If you run with adddon aircraft and sceneries, then the client only install should be fine.

There's nothing water-related listed in the Content section of the change log, whereas the Client section has a few items:

Fixes and Improvements

  • Made optimizations to water rendering by removing unneeded emissive samples on water-only tiles.
  • ...
  • Fixed inconsistent specular and emissive values between land, water, and land+water shader variations.
  • ...
  • Improved water appearance in cube maps used for reflections.

It would be nice if LM acknowledged popular addon's and worked with the developers a bit more before an update so that the process is a little less clunky. Some developers have access to beta prior to release, meaning they can get their products ready, while others miss out and play catch up (REX is a good example here). It leaves us, the consumer, in the position we find ourselves every update - having to dig around the forums to find out if our addons work or not.

I know most addons will eventually be updated, but the process could be streamed lined a little better is my point.
