Good news everyone!
With this version update we're taking a big leap forward in regards to ION's look & feel. Or in other words: expect eye candy!
After delivering the previous update we got a glimpse of the world on the highest quality settings and decided to dedicate a cycle to esthetics. With new hardware we could finally tweak things for the folks operating in the upper range. Up to that point the bottom line performance was determined using an ancient Nvidia Quadro with only 512 megs of ram. Animations were hardly a priority and rather poor. (Which is a polite way of saying they sucked. Especially compared to this update!) Not to mention movement felt like running through a pool of custard with a heal kit clenched between the buttocks. We´re very pleased with the results and look forward to hear you lot about it
