[1.8.1 - 1.9.1] Kopernicus Continued in KSP1 Mod Releases Posted July 22, 2020 23 hours ago, crazyduck said: Ok thats something i understand, but was it different in 1.8 before Kopernicus added this forced setting? i mean before had the Planet Autor control over it or what did change in KSP that in 1.8 and before it was not a problem and after 1.8 it become a problem. I don´t try to annoy you i only try to understand what had changed so kopernicus changed this one option. And why would it as example not be a solution to not lock the setting but add a simple warning dialog something like "changing this Value can cause issues with Planet Packs" this would still allow people to reduce the setting and run the game without lags and at same time warn that it can cause issues. 1.8 had the same behaviour, but I tried to do a lot of it within Kopernicus, without changing the settings value. But that code was full of bugs, and since the behaviour was the same anyways, I changed it in preparation for 1.9. This included adding the warning message. If you only display a warning, instead of locking the value, you don't gain much, if not nothing at all. People just ignore warnings. As a maintainer, you want to prevent people from relying on different behaviours outside of their or your control. For example one planet pack that is based on the values from "Medium", and one that is based on "Ultra". Supporting that is a complete mess. The only reliably way is to expose the same behaviour to everyone, no matter the game settings. And in this case it means you choose one quality level for them. Since the people who can run the ultra shader probably vastly outnumbers those who can't, the choice was easy.
