Sanhok was an absolute blast to play. It ran smoothly, and I didn't experience any framerate drops or anything else detrimental to gameplay on that map. The gunlpay was fluid, and being able to fully enjoy the map again was wonderful.
However, I'm still having some pretty significant rendering issues on my Xbox One X on Miramar. I really enjoy dropping in Hacienda, and if I'm not getting the "play-doh" building, including the pool area not being rendered, the furniture on the interior of the building isn't rendering. After the "Play-Doh" subsides, the buildings are fully accessible and lootable, but there is no furniture inside so you can get some pretty significant stuttering/bouncing around if you run into where furniture is trying to render, which can be frustrating if you're unlucky enough to not find a weapon right off and you are trying to escape in a hurry.
One other thing I noticed is that the "floating guns and gear" bug is back. I don't necessarily mind it as it is not a game breaking issue, however, it can make it really easy for people to track other players down if they are trailing them and see their loadout just floating in the air which could give them the upper hand.
My suggestion would be to return the rendering logic to a previous state for users. A couple patches back, I had the ability to see hacienda, school, or novo fully rendered before even exiting the plane. This was wonderful because I could see weapons on rooftops atop crates as I approached the LZ and I could make a judgment call on where to land based on what weapons or gear are on a particular roof. With more recent patches this ability is completely gone except for a few times I've been able to do this on Erangel at Georgepool or School.
I understand that the rendering logic was changed to accommodate OG users as well as X users so that no one could run through walls or see loot through walls, which is great and really did level the playing field. However, if you are able to adjust settings in a console specific way like you did with this hotfix that fixed many issues, could we also change the rendering logic back for X users so we don't have to struggle with "play-doh" and furniture not rendering?
I've not seen any negative things occur because of this hotfix, only positives. The framerates were wonderful on Sanhok and it was a joy to play. I enjoyed the fast-paced change from the battle royale to mini royale.
I feel that if we can more fully get the rendering issues addressed we will be doing great!
