Hi all,

Anyone else suffering for long delays when you switch back from Ikaros to character. I go out and do some recon, and it takes around 15 seconds to return. I've been playing origins recently and it was pretty much instantaneous.

Also loading between conversations, even for menial NPC missions is quite disruptive.

I have capture evidence for the Ikaros issue if required. Its pretty much consistent.

Cheers

Hey Rixy,

I've noticed this sometimes when I have played, can you pass me the footage over and i'll report it formally to the team for them to check into :)

I agree the load time when you switch from ikaros that is a certain distance away is a bit annoying.

Hi Bandicoot,

This one wasn't the longest i've had to wait. But hopefully this will help.

Another issue is that HUD settings aren't saving through game close and re-open, despite saving the game down before exiting.

Cheers

Awesome thanks man, we're currently collecting info on this so any footage is great :)

I've noticed someone else talk about this HUD issue, so i'll get this reported too!

Any extra footage feel free to send it here and i'll pick it up

I want to chime in on this annoying issue which, as of patch 1.07, has not been resolved. Compared to Origins, the flight loading times in Odyssey are really aggravating and damage the long term experience.

Below are two videos illustrating the problem. I've made tests of 5, 10, 15 and 30 seconds (up to about 150 meters) which show how poor Odyssey performs when switching from the character to Ikaros and back.

As previously mentioned by DarkRi6, Origins is near instantaneous in most situations, while Odyssey can take several seconds to "load back", even after short flight hops. Do that a million times and you can understand the frustration. Surely there are some optimizations to be made.

Hi Ryusennin!

This issue has been forwarded up to the development team for further review.

Your video footage provided is great help and very much appreciated! Additionally, would you be able to tell in which cities/regions does the issue tend to happen more drastically and whether you noticed any differences of the issue occurring from locations perspective?

Thanks Karl for the feedback.

Unfortunately it happens pretty much anywhere, be it a city, a forest or even at sea. When on boat, if you cruise at max speed and call Ikaros, immediately going back to the character will be enough to force a black loading screen just to "catch up" with the ship. It's downright silly and very annoying during a simple reconnaissance flight.

Over land, if you fly in strait line in Odyssey for ten seconds or more, you'll trigger a long loading screen. In Origins, unless flying on very long distances, the loading is very fast. Even a dense location like Alexandria performs better than any sparse place in Odyssey.

Hey Ryusennin.

Thank you for providing those details, I will pass it along to the dev team.
