This seems to be very new, or is just being exacerbated by higher player volume than usual. I notice it often in the Arcade but I cannot say this with validity as I’ve been spending lots of time in the Arcade compared to anywhere else
Steps to Reproduce
Enter the Arcade
Wait for the textures of the cabinets to fully load.
Play games in the Arcade for a while
What I expected to happen
The textures should remain fully loaded.
The textures fall back to the very low quality state of being very blurry once in a while and take a few minutes to reload properly.
I like this, but I’ve not seen it happen (or at least not of this frequency) until this month. It’s been happening multiple times during a single session, as opposed to not at all for days/weeks at a time and maybe once if that.
Texture streaming wll kick in when you have maxxed your VRAM usage. This happens due to the workshop player models. We have optimized the arcade and the textures for the arcade.
Workshop models can contain large textures that add up fast. We have discussed about adding more limits to workshop models but the change could destroy countless models. We are still trying to figure out ways to improve it.
