This update introduces Nvidia DLSS support for our PC players. Compatible Nvidia graphic cards can now use DLSS Super Resolution, Deep Learning Anti-aliasing (DLAA), Nvidia Reflex Low Latency, and DLSS Frame generation. Please note: While DLSS Frame Generation is active, VSync needs to be toggled OFF to see the benefit. We are working to automatically adjust this setting in a future update.

Starfield 1.8.86

Fixes and Improvements

Graphics

The Steam Beta branch has been updated with additional visual improvements related to DLSS. [This was all the official Discord notice said - more details pending a check of the files that were updated]

=========

Unfortunately that's all there is to this one. A delta patch between 1.8.84 and 1.8.86 showed the only changes are all in undecoded subrecords so there's no way to know what they are.

Starfield 1.8.88

Addressed an issue that would cause space matter to become stuck to player's ship during space travel. Loading a save will now remove the space clingon.

A fix for that will be released in a later update.

Save/Load

[MSS/Xbox] Fixed an issue where players could experience crashes while saving during long playthrough without going through the Unity.

Some recent observations:

1) I can confirm that the bug with NPCs in underpants (e.g. Akila City guards) is fixed.

2) Apparently, the Shield perk bug has been officially fixed too (despite none of Beth's announcements saying so).

The fix isn't retroactive though. When I upgraded the shield generator on one of my ships, I got the 60% shield strength increase with rank 3 of the perk (which corresponds to the perk description). Another ship that hasn't been modified in several weeks now still has the 120% increase though (instead of setting the shield strength increase to 40% and 60%, respectively, ranks 2 and 3 did add up these percentages, resulting in actual increases of 60% and 120%). I assume that this will not change until I modify the shield generator in ship builder mode.

That FormID fix is a major one.  Not only did it stop the crashes on all my last saves where I was having them, the save size also went from 54,382 KB down to 31,349 KB (Level 92).

I checked it on my initial game save from September and for me it only dropped by 3 MB, but that's still 3MB I wasn't really expecting.
