"Create enough chaos, and any nation will willingly surrender its freedom, in favor of false security"


As we look at our history, you can find the truth hidden in the daylight. We could have predicted this decades ago, some did, but we didn't listen. They started something, something revolutionary. They turned the poor against the rich, they started an uprising, through the idea of "true" freedom, while hiding their real motives until it was too late. All they needed was the pandemonium a good catastrophe would create, and they got it. As America turned to anarchy, they gave us a choice, our freedom or our security.

Everything our founders spent years fighting for was gone in the blink of an eye. We took our freedom for granted, and because of that, we lost it. Maybe it was what we deserved, but we also deserve a second chance. Today is your second chance. Together, we can rise and defeat the forces that are causing our oppression. We are the Resistance, we are America's redemption.

- December 5th, 2036

Yup yup, thats what i meant by "beautiful"

Big issue though. I can only get about 15:FPS (I have a GTX570)..... Its because the map is so huge. We just got to hide or delete unimportant areas.

But here the good news... theres a way to make certain areas disappear when player is not looking at them. Its a good optimization technique. Bad news is I dont know how to do it yet.
Gimme a sec... Im researching right now

Okay sounds great. Also your definitely right the open world level was hitting 7 million polygons at some points, which is way too high considering crysis 2 levels didn't even hit a million. So in its current state only a GTX 590 can run it haha

if you have somes DP / polycount problem, i suggest you to use occluder as much as you can. Since you have plane / vertical occluder, and since its a city with huge building you will easyly be able to drasticly increase the performance.
+Solid who have the "good occluder" option.

The default Crytek SP level are just very baddly optimized because of the poor occluder usage.
+ they didnt even model their building with a occulder proxy like in Crysis1 ( who just suck for performance )

And if you use correctly organize your level with the layer and correctly use the "layerswitch" + tweak building lods.. you will get huge performance boost.

because, from what i see from your screens, its only building without any detail / decals / particle / geomEntity / light... etc etc. So no reason to get to bad performance.

Just as exemple :

this part show the parking + hotel ( from the Alien Vessel small MP map ) with occluder rework. ( and there is plenty of decal / entity / lights.. etc )
