    Rockford is way less optimized than this map. On a slower computer, go through Rockford and then run through Florida. It is way more optimized even in single player.

    I used to have a slower computer and did this. It's obvious.

    But you're testing this in singleplayer, you need to remember than in the server there will be more people, cars and entities. Also GMTower stuff and all the shit I said before.

    That will never be fixed, until the server improves, and people keep down the prop abuse. But the map is also the issue, go to GM and TownHall and don't tell me the area is unoptimized. And that is due to the map

    Rockford is laggy, yes. Mostly when looking at the part of Mesa and all of that. Prop abuse has nothing to do with it, it's not like there's a prop spammer 24/7, if you mean that there are a lot of props there's nothing that can be done.

    Still, florida could be laggy too and has all the other flaws I pointed out before.

    We will see, I guarantee it will be faster. And feel Moreno open and bigger. It's a improvement overall

    We'll still have to keep in mind all the other things I said before.

    That's never going to change. But improvements are still in there with this map, and it's bigger. Is that what you were saying?

    So I did some experimenting. I ran around both rp_florida and rp_rockford_v2b using netgraph 2, and mat_wireframe 3 comparing FPS and optimization. I did this on a mid range PC on all high graphics settings on a local server.

    My conclusion is that both the maps have their own issues. Rockford's openish areas cause FPS drop but these regions are mostly isolated from each other. Florida is bunched together but almost every interior renders at the same time. Due to everything being very close in Florida I predict more drops in FPS if you are standing outside. I also discovered that overall the FPS is higher on Florida but we cannot solely draw conclusion from any singleplayer tests.

    Before we choose to use this map on the RP server it should be test runned on another server. Possibly Simple could bring up a test server and see how it would hold up.

    Well, whatever works. I love the vibe of this map, fees huge, but isn't that big. Looking forward to the countryside. Chronet should update the map, if implemented every time a update comes to Florida. Because the countryside sounds cool, as I know players will complain there isn't enough rural areas for them.

    I don't think it would be a good idea to use a map with copyrighted content on the server. If we are going to change to florida at least wait until the creator updates it.

    I think it has more to do with the name. There is a Taco Bell on the server right now? Isn't that copyright content too? It is FYI, but that doesn't mean Chronet still doesn't do it.

    Also, the map if added will come out when the update Chronet V2 comes out. The map will be at that state it is in when the update happens

    Yes, hopefully in time when the update happens that the countryside gets added. Seems interesting to me

    Just privated, also if you downloaded it you can still play it.
