Containment Initiative 1.74 Performance Update/Engine Upgrade

Posted by: CIDev on steam_community_announcements September 14, 2020

Update 1.74 is now available for all players. The big focus of this update is performance and optimization. All players will see between a 10-30% FPS boost(Depending on the situation/map/co-op). Minimum and Mid spec PC's will likely see the biggest improvements. There are also some small image quality improvements since I have a lot more headroom to work with performance wise.


-Engine upgrade to Unity 2017.4.40(Previously the game was running on a late 2016 build of Unity 5.6. This introduces about a years worth of updates, changes, and optimizations.)
-Single Pass Stereo rendering enabled(This is where the big performance gains really come from. Especially noticeable in co-op.)

Post Processing/Graphical Upgrades:
-Bloom added for VR Player
-Bloom and Depth of Field added for PC player.
-Volumetric lighting added to City Night
