  • Shivoa posted a message in the forum topic At the Last Second, Elite: Dangerous Drops Offline Mode. on the Elite: Dangerous board

    That added detail does make it a lot more reasonable to push the camera up against the textures. Some of the cockpit detailing looks a bit low-poly but I guess that's just because we're all used to re...
