So first off before this patch, the game ran pretty well, definitely not the best but it was by no means bad.
My specs are:
Asus Z170p motherboard
EVGA geforce 1070ti 8GB
16GB vengeance DDR4 RAM
Sandstorm is on a 120GB SSD
After the patch I'm experiencing awful slow texture load ins. some feel like they dont even load in and look like this most of the game:
Sure there were some texture load ins previously but they happened pretty quickly and were barely of notice to me but now this is a joke to be honest, I don't know what went wrong. this update feels like a massive step back to me and this is really frustrating since I was really looking forward to playing it. and while I didn't play to much of the CTE, it certainly didn't seem as bad as this so I am really unsure as to what has happened.
I was also playing refinery earlier to test the new patch and my game was freezing for up to about 3 seconds in some cases it's pretty bad and was happening quite regularly. I just really am unsure as to what has happened, I have tried alot of fixes with various settings as well. even deleting my whole player config as well as verifying my cache.
There must be a hotfix soon to fix whatever problem that is happening because its not just me as well you can check the reddit to see people having similar issues or worse. I don't want this post to come of negative towards the devs or anything of the sort, I just love this game and I am really frustrated that this update is essentially a massive downgrade and a remarkably huge step backwards in performance for me. Please release a hotfix or something ASAP NWI I dont wanna play with stutters and terribly loaded textures especially since I have a pretty decent computer.
Here's a link to the reddit thread where I explain more of the problem and others share their experience as well as with some more screenshots: https://www.reddit.com/r/insurgency/comments/avz4jg/anyone_else_having_awful_texture_loading_issues/
