Your Opinion of 1.75

205 Replies 1,436 Views Created 13-02-2013

Well the day has finally arrived, the 1.75 client has been added to Home.

 

A lot of users have been pretty vocal on their views prior to the update but when it goes live today and people get the chance to go hands on with it, I'm interested to see what people like and don't like about it. Obviously there's going to be the view that some of you don't like the save file thing but there's more to the update than that.

 

Hopefully get some interesting views on it in here.

 

Maybe it would be a good idea to list your likes and dislikes about it? Just to see how the community here reacts to the update.

Logged in for the third time today and still zero issues and loving it. I'd suggest to anyone having problems to delete Home and re-install it.

Not very happy about the increased bandwidth, I'd never managed to use 1.2GB in a single hour (I was on a slow network and would use only 100MB an hour so I have no idea how GB's figure is so huge), but even on faster broadband like now, I don't want to be hogging it down.

Those figures are based on a fresh install (not including the download of the Home client) then visiting various stores and lounges as well as playing games.

Oh, that's understandable then, moving frequently between spaces and pulling up store fronts is going to = constant demand for data. Even still, that's a heck of a lot.

I'm not shooting the messenger here, but did I not say 2-3 weeks ago that some kind of resilience testing should be done thoroughly before releasing such a big update to the public? Where's your proactive QA fixing problems before they arise?

 

Who ever does your 1st party QA is either lazy or does not care about Home.

@GB, I was always under the impression that 7200rpm was pointless in a PS3, and that a 5400rpm was about as fast as you should go anyways. I've no idea how these speeds relate to SSDs (if at all) but it'll be interesting to see what they put in as standard for the next PS. Whatever they decide, they need to get rid of that FAT32 malarkey they insisted on with PS3, as that's done nothing but cause problems.

Anyways, I think I've kinda derailed this thread (sorry Loon) so I'll just shaddap now...

7200rpm and hybrid HDD/SDD drives do make a difference. They increase disk R/W performance, just not I/O. The I/O is limied by the SATA controller (SATA rev1 @ 1.5 Gbits or 150 MBs).

From the tests I've seen on the Internet with the 5400rpm vs 7200rpm for PS3 the 7200rpm came out being slightly more faster but not fast enough to be of any benefit when it comes to the performance and certainly not worth the price tag 7200rpm drives have. Sony puts horrible HDDs in the PS3, they have bad latency, so going out and getting an 5400rpm drive from WD or something will more than likely help with things. I was going to get an 7200rpm drive myself for the PS3 but its really not worth it =/ So I got a WD Blue from Amazon and the improvements in load times is quite big =d

Okay, my overall experience/feedback is as follows.

 

I used the new update for around 4hrs last night and didn't have a single negative issue. Obviously there are real issues. Too many people are having them. I didn't jump through hoops or do anything odd to make the update work. All I did was start Home, let it run the update, then proceeded to upload my data. As soon as that was done I went to Harbor studio. Before doing a single thing, I went into settings and deleted my hefty sized cache. It took almost 10 mins to delete. I almost thought it was stuck at one point. After that was done and it loaded Home back, I checked my furniture items. Everything was there. I then checked my wardrobe. Everything was there. Some things were in a different order, but that wasn't a problem. I loaded a couple of saved outfits then manually changed into stuff. Everything was significantly quicker than usual. I exited Home completely, logged off PSN then logged back on and restarted the software. I got no error codes or anything. After Home reloaded, I visited several spaces to get them back into the cache. That was boring but it went smoothly. Once that was done, I settled in Random Central for a bit (ok, The Square). I changed outfit a few times to see how things went in an open space. It was all smooth; didn't get stuck in wardrobe once. Then, to my delight, I realized wardrobe lag had been vaquished. 

 

The new interface is nicer. I like the slightly improved layout. I also noticed there are now people walking around with Plus graphics beside their name - to advertise Plus to non-plussers despite the fact Home doesn't really offer anything on its own worth upgrading to that service for. Makes the place look kind of two-tier-ludicrious, IMO. But whatever. I'm sure it's nice for Plus users to get to feel a little more special for their extra cash outlay.

 

So, from my own personal experience, Home was a quicker, more fluid experience last night. Unsure whether it will be a lasting bliss when you consider all the info is now on Sony servers. Perhaps we'll all be struck with new random tech issues from time to time. For now it seemed ok though.

Is it just me that's found with each day that goes past the update gets worse? Yesterday I could go in and out of any space with ease ...today however Home either crashes on relocating or is soo slow at loading up. I timed it earlier from choosing a space to getting there ( depending on what mood Home's in ) it takes around 4 minutes. That's just moving from one space to another !!

Works fine for me. Slow loading. Downloading spaces, without it downloading properly. Clothing loading at the speed of a dead snail. Avatars taking about 3 hours to load, low textures as normal...  All working correctly :)

 

 

If I  must complain though.  One thing I (still) do not understand with home.  You are paying for virtual clothing,  barely any avatars nearby load textures to their fullest.  What is the point buying clothing that is going to display in low res..?  Surely the whole point is to see them in their highest definition.  

 

I am guessing Home will probably cross over to the PlayStation 4 in some form, judging the amount of content.  Either a continuation as it is currently, or a slight vevamp graphically.  Perhaps the PS4 can help out with the issues here.

The update took forever.

First I downloaded the new update.

Next I waited 8 minutes to get to the transfer data screen.

1.5 minutes to transfer data. (not bad)

Then waiting for it to default to HOME SQUARE. Because now you have to download the space before you can USE HOME. Which is annoying.
