Changes:
  • More reshading optimization.
  • New "reshade delay" setting in advanced graphics settings.
  • Fixed a bug when recalculation terrain normals for editor.

Windows users: http://www.mxsimulator.com/snapshots/mx-2018-02-11-1391.exe
Linux users: http://www.mxsimulator.com/snapshots/mxbin-2018-02-11-1391

Replace mx.exe or mxbin with one of the above files. The default location for mx.exe should be "C:\Program Files (x86)\MX Simulator". I'd keep a backup of the originals since these aren't well tested.

"Reshade Delay" lets you delay the terrain reshading for 2^x-1 frames, where 'x' is the delay setting. This will reduce the amount of work done when erode is on at a cost of slower shading updates. If you're around 128 fps a setting of 8 should be a couple of seconds delay, which really helps reduce the number of slow frames you get. If you max it out at 20, it'll be fast but take hours to update. 0 will update on every frame like it used to.

I read your explanation for the reshade delay but still a little confused. Anyway you could simplify it for dummies like me? :oops:
Like if I crank it to 20 what will that mean? Erode will be difficult to see at the cost of better performance?
What exactly does the number mean? Like 8 being 8 seconds?

I probably sound stupid but just trying to get a better understanding.

By the sounds of it not sure but the higher it is the longer delay it is for erode to show going off what he's said, otherwise if its on 0 its will show straight away like how it was.

2^(20)-1 = 2^19 = 524288

If it's maxed out at 20 it would take 524288 frames to update the terrain shading. If you're running 125fps it would take 4194.304f seconds to update the terrain shading which is about an hour and 9 minutes assuming you're running at a constant frame rate of 125. Hence the " If you max it out at 20, it'll be fast but take hours to update. ".
At least that's what I'm understanding and assuming my math is correct at 3AM.
