    • I also believe that as the Blue Book value of the car increases, the prtbibalioy that the driver is driving poorly to draw attention to the fact that he – my theory mostly holds true in the case of men – owns a very expensive car and, in turn, the road, increases.

    • About “when you ship a DDS you may see no VRAM savings and no FPS ch28ne&#g2a1;, I’m working with a (photographic) scenery with normals maps. I tested normals both in PNG and DDS and in DDS sim is usable but in PNG simulator runs out of memory (crashes). So… I don’t lnow about VRAM (you say is the same) but DDS textures saves (a lot of) RAM, against PNG.
