My quest for smooth fades in a world that can barely handle consistent transparency, let alone constantly changing transparency, is over. The bomb drop crash bug persists even into R01c (sure, for an ever-dwindling subset of system configurations, but it’s still there) — so I’m going to bite the bullet and just make the bloody activation circles switch off instead of fading out. If this doesn’t fix the problem I am probably just going to kill myself.
The plus side? You get the Projector Kit, Prox Mod and Aegis early, because I’ve already implemented them. Merry Christmas!
