Hunt: Showdown Update 1.8 Server and Client Improvements

Hunt: Showdown Update 1.8
Hunt: Showdown Update 1.8 Steam

Update 1.8 for Hunt: Showdown is here, and it focuses on bug fixes and game improvements.

The most important part of the update is about the server and client performance. Many players had issues with the server since Update 1.7 came out, and in this update, developers made some adjustments to fix these persisting issues.

For server improvements, developers reduced the amount of processing power required to run the doors, chains, and basically most interactable objects. There was an issue that caused the game to spike in performance when the AI went idle. To fix this issue, they cut the processing cost of the AI, in exchange for a slower reaction time.

For the client side, developers enhanced the interaction between the game and Steam API. This should decrease the chances of framerate issues and other unnecessary resource utilization.
