[0.5.2.1] Compressed textures WoWs for slow computers or computers without SSD

29.12.2015
textures updated for version 0.5.2.1

Textures are compressed to 50, 25 and 12.5% of their original compression and you can install all of them or separatelly for environment or ships. New compressed textures do not change original WoWs textures – they are installed in res_mods folder.

Author has measured WoWs loading times of port after login into game with and without using compressed textures on his home computer and here are his results:

Clean client 0.3.1.2 – 43 seconds
50% quality of textures – 35 seconds
25% quality of textures – 27 seconds
12.5% quality of textures – 11 seconds

Pros:
Faster game/battle loading
Faster port loading after login/battle
Faster ship switching in port
Fewer lags caused by loading graphic elements during battle
Consuming less computer resources than original client

Cons:
Lower graphics quality (depends on quality of used compressed textures)

Conclusion: It is a very good package for players with weaker computers, especially without SSD or with small amount of RAM/graphics memory. To players with powerful computers this package will not bring a real benefit.

Installation: Unpack downloaded archive into appropriate folder in res_mods

Notes:
Textures for ships are stored in “World_of_Warships\res_mods\0.4.1\content\gameplay”. In all other folders are being stored environment textures.
It is highly recommended to switch-off your internet browser during playing WoWs. Internet browser can drastically decrease performance of your computer.
