Workshop Playermodel Preloading For Game Worlds


As it is right now, when you join a game, your playermodel won’t be loaded from the start, which causes a big stutter when it loads. This is a major issue at the start of a Ball Race match, or if someone joins late, their playermodel isn’t loaded before they spawn, and when they do spawn, it takes a few seconds, causing everyone to freeze again when it does load, which often makes people fall off the edge of the map and lose a life.

I dunno if this is even a possibility, especially if you don’t already have the model downloaded. This is more a suggestion for models that you’ve already got cached.

The real issue here is the stutter. It shouldn’t stutter when loading the model, so really that should be investigated more first.
