After one year I booted up ED just for some testing and noticed two things:
There seem to be so many big (and bright) stars visible in the sky box that it almost seems like a distraction (for example other ships are harder to spot). Is it something new (I do not remember the stars being so “pronounced” a year ago.)?
When running ED I observe an intermittent stuttering, which I believe is visualized in SteamVR Advanced Frame Timing as spikes:
This is captured from 72Hz, but when I tried 90Hz config (with lower res to fit into the frame time), I observed the same behavior. It is recorded in the game menu (hangar), so it does not represent a gameplay, but I believe it represents the stutter.
I know there has been a long discussion about microstuttering from some firmware version, related to Pimax “optimization” of frame time, but I do not remember if it has been fixed, or not.
For the record, I am currently running R5 5600X, 32GB RAM and 1080Ti.
