Ok, this is a long shot and probably never going to happen, but imagine being able to play eve in a 2k fleet battle on a potato pc, instead of no brackets in potato mode just a black screen and just the brackets instead. A simple keyboard shortcut will activate it. which then unloads assets from the GPU and ram. But can only be activated when a certain trigger is met. All the other stuff is still visible as in windows, tactical overlay, so there still a 3d world but only the icon and text when selected. Locked targets and selected items will still show the icons so at least you know what you’re shooting.
This reduces the load on the GPU significantly and allows the client to run at decent framerate, even better there could be a way that Eve Client could offload some of the computational power the CPU has to deal with to the GPU make things work better.
