    Hello again!

    As you all know, Project: Gorgon is launching another Kickstarter campaign starting July 31st!

    You guys know best what you love about our game, what sites and activities might help spread the word and get funding off to a great start. Starting today, July 16th and ending on Sunday, July 20th at 12am US EST, we're going to run a quick, fun contest.

    The winner will be randomly drawn as a lottery from posters in this thread so everyone has a chance at winning: your choice of 20 teleportation gems (amethyst), 50 skulls (any), OR 500 cotton!

    To enter all we need are 3 fun screenshots of Project: Gorgon taken by you!. The purpose is to show off this fun game we have come to love, and put PG's best foot forward. That's it! Simple, eh?

    On Monday, July 21st, we'll randomly draw a player name from this thread and announce the winner! Spread the word, get your friends involved and get ready to kick Project: Gorgon into gear!

    So I took a few screenshots, but I have no idea where project gorgon saves them to. Anyone know where I can find them at?

    So I went and retook a few of the ones I had taken around Serbule using printscreen. Still not sure if the screenshot shortcuts work or not, and if they do where they save to.

    Turkeyneck - What settings are you using for your picture of Serbule town? I did a complete reinstall less than a week ago and using default setting I see a lot less vegetation and at lower resolution. I can only see 3 trees and the bushes near 2 of them. The trees in the south of town and outside town are not visible. The grasses etc seen in your picture at bottom left also don't show on my screen though they appear to be closer than the tree south of the stable which does show.

    I change resolutions all of the time depending on whether I'm playing windowed or full-screen.

    Graphics Quality is set to Fantastic, and I have 'experimental optimizations' checked as well.

    My overrides I've screencapped and listed below. I haven't toggled them at all, at least not to my memory - I do however use the in-game 'hi-res' screenshot option (it's at the bottom of the keybinds list - I have mine set to CTRL + SHIFT + P. I have to hit it twice to actually get it to take a picture for some reason as well.)

    Thanks for the information. I will adjust things later to find what I like but changing the following 6 advanced settings gave a very big improvement.
    Target Frame Rate - 30
    Tree Draw Distance - 1000
    Max High-Res Trees - 100
    Tree Billboard Distance - 201
    Grass Draw Distance - 250
    Grass Draw Density - 1
    I have been leaving Experimantal Optimizations and Auto-Adjust Quality Level unchecked with Fastest checked and this gave a minimum framerate of 30 most of the time. I didn't change these settings when I made the advanced changes and on the first check - collecting minerals from surveys - the framerate was maintained.
    After the earlier patch that reduced the graphics and before making these changes and using the default settings Serbule, outside town, was a featureless green/brown tundra with an occasional cartoon tree appearing close by and no grass of flowers on the ground. It must give a bad impression to new players.

    Thanks for posting about your settings. It will at least give folks something to start from if they don't understand the settings....like me. If its alright I would like to make a post out of the last two replies and have it stickied.

    That is fine with me. The 2 patches at the weekend seem to have changed the default resolution which now looks OK. The values I quoted above give more trees and grass than the latest defaults as I remember how mine looked but I am not sure what the default values are. In the preferences file they appear to be given by -1. I have an old computer with a good graphics card so my experience may not apply for other hardware.
