Planetside 2 - 03/04/13 02:10 PM

so I've been playing alot of planetside2 and have come across several sites that could help you.

first one lets you see camos BEFORE you buy them:
http://www.heavysden.com/ps2/ps2_preview.php#

then they have an even more advanced one that lets you see camos on vehicles:
http://ps2hq.com/model-viewer

and another link is a new one, they just included an option to see your stats and your outfits stats:
http://www.planetside-universe.com/characters.php


now if you play this game on a less then optimal system, you might notice some lag or graphics issues, according to SOE they offer some tips to reduce that:

but since SOE has no fscking clue what they are doing, we have come across some helpful .INI edting to help you reach your "optimal" settings, aka ULTRA setting, for good PCs only.

Edit the config file that is found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\PlanetSide 2/UserOptions

Here is my config that I spent quite a while getting "right" for my computer, graphics arent the greatest, I know but... I get 80FPS quite consistently. feel free to copy it all (changes some in game settings, mainly you want the "rendering" part.)

now if you have a awesome pc, and its getting more then like 80FPS you could try and FORCE ON phy-x, SOE is currently working on enabling phy-x but havent rolled out the option.

so here is what you add to your rendering line in the .ini

[Rendering]
GraphicsQuality=4
TextureQuality=0
ShadowQuality=0
RenderDistance=6000.000000
Gamma=0.500000
MaximumFPS=60
UseLod0a=0
OverallQuality=-1
LightingQuality=4
EffectsQuality=4
TerrainQuality=4
FloraQuality=0
ModelQuality=4
VerticalFOV=74
ParticleLOD=4
ParticleDistanceScale=0.650000
FogShadowsEnable=0
Motionblur=0
VSync=0
GpuPhysics=1
ForceGpuPhysics=1

AO=0


that will get you cool particle effects like this



well thats all i have for right now, but stay tuned for more breaking info on PLANETSIDE 2
