    Did anyone else see in the Stand Up Notes that @Chris was working on, "Dance Party Profiling"? I would love to know what dance party profiling entails and can it involve Soul Train, please!? :D

    lol!

    There was a lot of people there and the fps for me was constant 10-12. Much better than previous parties.

    Edit: That was at 'Best' video quality.

    It means getting metrics about game performance during dance parties.

    Performance Metrics as one of the main purposes of the Dance Parties is stress testing.

    I would rather them not be wasting time on dances or anything related to dance parties. Personally I find it interesting that there are all these dance parities organized each month it really makes the game seem more like Sims.

    Would be great if the people organizing would do dungeons, dragons and aether scorps as well. I would be more interested joining these and watching it on twitch instead of watching a bunch of avatars dry hump each other.

    And I know that's what the LFG is for but no one really uses it.

    They're actually not wasting time. It helps them find performance bottlenecks for large events.

    A much better way would be to create their own event it would be killing two birds with one stone. Something they could do would be to have a Halloween event at Brittany graveyard and have all these skellies and undead spawn and maybe have them drop some deco item like a skeleton starue. This would allow them to do testing plus something fun and neat that they setup.

    They do that too but it takes a lot more work (which pulls people away from other tasks). Not long ago, they had dragons invading towns. It was a lot of fun but more like a slideshow than an event.

    Cool would love to see something like that, I've only been playing since June so haven't see any yet.

    Atos seemed to be doing a lot of profiling lately. Profiled a few of us standing on a lot listening to Laz and jack. Now profiling a dance party, which wasn't half bad. I was running in 3840x2160 with fps hitting in the range between 10-16 with low shadows. If Atos is looking to doing some hardcore profiling for mining I can plan an 8 hour grind in Elysium, while I devour HotPockets.

    Yeah, I'd love to see more events like that. A Halloween event, like you suggested, would be awesome.

    I thought dance party profiling meant avoiding people that go to dance parties.

    The dance parties are not setup by Portalarium. They are player made events that happen to draw devs. The amount of people that attend allows a great opportunity for devs to profile. All of your ideas are great but no reason to not profile player created events.

    Probably when we can actually make dungeons, we'll have a few parties in them.

    A dungeon party would be a good idea, even better if dungeons were pvp enabled.
    Cost of admission into a dungeon party would be your avatars death, after all Dinsoo does need to eat on a constant basis.
