Trust me you wouldn't want to go backwards and create one hole in a vacuum essentially making you replant and recreate any adjacent holes over and over like you had to in years gone by. Those days are long gone and good riddance.

 

What we have in it's place is a system using LOD which means objects in the distance are rendered at much lower detail.

 

 

Can I ask you...does the game render "behind you"?

Could "not doing that" perhaps help with performance overall?

 

(maybe a stupid question...but hey..why not learn, right? - haha!_)

Try not to worry about what other people say about the game. If you enjoy playing it, that's all that matters anyway. 

 

Not sure that's a good way to develop a game (not caring what others say or think about it)...but ok?

 

Also - I'm not personally "worried" about what reviewers are saying at all - but there is some of whats being said that I agree with.

Not talking about game development, just talking about personal enjoyment level. I'm sure this game will continue to improve and become more popular, I hope it does anyway. It would be nice to have two golf games I really enjoy.

I "entered the fray" when I used the utube link to see what was being said.  wow.  Some were positive but most neg posts were (imo) ppl looking for instant gratification playability.  And I continued to watch all of the following ones also.  Many had no comments but when there were negatives, I (as politely as I could manage) pointed out what they'd said as having no merit because...and explained from my POV what was wrong with their derisive comments.  

 

As for an in-depth tutorial for the entire game.  I agree there should be one but only so no one can't say it isn't there, thus "I can't be bothered with the time necessary to learn without one", "I've made too many swings and don't have a clue why they don't go straight", "how does the meter work?", etc.  There are those of us who have put in the time to figure it out by ourselves (with the occasional bit of help) and those that can't be bothered.  Kinda like some ppl enjoy putting something together w/o using the instructions (me) and those that can't do it even with them.  Still, you gotta put it in the box with the product.

I’ve still never reviewed this game on Steam..

 

I’ve thought about it — but I’m not sure I’d be able to be objective about just the gameplay at this point without coloring my opinions with what’s happened with PP/TM and us being “abandoned” mostly...

 

Did anyone else never review it either?

 

I was always “waiting” for a few more fixes and tweaks over time before doing a review, and then “poof” - the rug was pulled out and they sold to TM and that was sort of “it”.

I gave it a positive one very early on, specifically praising Course Forge. It got buried fairly quickly by EA fanboys I'm sure.

Just a few options would  have been great for some basic variety in rounds with multiple people.

Even in the early Quakeworld days, it always seemed odd to me how concerned people are about how they look in a video game.

I've been playing MLB The Show for a number of years and it's amazing to me how many people complain about the lack of tattoos and how various brands of cleats aren't in the game instead of focusing on game play issues.
