I began thinking about Jshock's comment in another release thread about the size of recent artpacks, and I decided to release art packs in three sizes. Not the map packs, art packs (objects) and tile packs will be in three different sizes:
Grid200, Grid100 and Grid50
This will definitely allow GM's to optimize their performance better in low bandwidth situations. Let's face it, the size difference of this tile pack is 36meg (Grid200) and 3meg (Grid50); that really can make a difference when sending map assets to low bandwidth players.
Options are good, right?
Now you can choose between fantastic Beauty (grid200) and not-so-pretty but performs better (less than Grid200) - you have options.
So far I have re-sized all of ProBono's Tiles and they are now available to download.
Try to download what you tend to use, moving forward, instead of all three - this not only saves on Bandwidth but it will also give me an idea of what people tend to use most when looking at the log files. It gives me a little insight.
So, throughout the day/week, I will go through the other grid200 packs (objects and tiles only) and make the changes.
If you have any thoughts on this, please post it here.
