    If that does what I think it does it will be useful for immersion. :D

    Sounds great, now having an example would be nice. I did a quick test and neither

    "Welcome on planet {PlayfieldName}." in the csv
    nor
    OptionIf_3: "PlayfieldName(Merin)"
    OptionIf_3: "Player.PlayfieldName(Merin)"
    OptionIf_3: "Player.PlayfieldName = Merin"
    worked.

    After some testing i found out it works this way:

    dialogue_TEST0101,<b>"Welcome on planet {Player.PlayfieldName}."</b>,

    Is that the only use case or is there one like i tried with OptionIf but i didn't find the correct formatting? There has to be as all the log errors are saying something like this isn't the proper usage but after half an hour i am now giving up on experimenting. There is also no proper use case in the dialogues configs and examples for player.anything so i cannot backtrack on how to use it.

    PS: Its little stuff like this guys. It would have taken whomever implemented this 3 minutes to write one or two little example lines down so people who know what's going on see at a glance what is happening and people who don't have a clue can possibly backtrack or derive the solution from a similar use case.

    You probably have to use a variable instead. So create a string variable and set it to use that.

    That's what you write.

    And that's what i see. :D I know i'm a tough case.

    Jokes aside. After thinking about it a few minutes i hope i got what you mean.

    Variable_1: "PlanetName", param1: Player.PlayfieldName
    OptionIf_3: "PlanetName = Merin"

    But that also doesn't work.

    You have to set the variable to the playfield name, so PlanetName = Player.PlayfieldName

    But I'm not home and cannot test it or give examples.

    Awesome, Eleon. I like how you're expanding the dialogue system. It's a must have for more convincing interactions between players and NPCs. Way to go.

    I am huge fan of this game and will probably ever be, showing it to people I know, but being a developer myself I have to agree with this.

    No info about incoming big updates. Holiday time or just a quiet before the storm? :)

    They don't usually give any info until just before it drops.
    Once in a while we get a teaser ahead of time, but that's definitely not the norm.

    @Taelyn @Pantera Since FSR is now added in Unity, would you guys consider using it for Empyrion? I hope it would not be much of a headache code wise and it will solve some performance issues reported by players.

    They couldn't even consider it until/if they update Unity first.

    FSR is only available starting with Unity 2021.2b (which is still in Beta I believe).
    As far as I can tell we are still on Unity 2020.1
    We are quite far behind on Unity versions. We are something like 55 versions behind on Unity right now....

    The game may not even be 100% compatible with the newer versions of Unity either (I don't know that for sure, just an example).

    I hope they add the Fidelity FX that in my case ETS2 went from 50 to 175 FPS with everything at maximum, while EGS has a "marginal" performance at the moment.-

    Hence the use of the word "..consider..."

    I had to look quite hard for some discussion on AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution in the forum! Glad to have found it, as a non programmer it all sounds soo exciting, until I read KrazyKids explanation of unity engine versions required before EGS could even consider FSR.

    Still I am sure the Dev's are keeping an eye on the industry adoption (or not) or this tech. Given the broad range of GPU's it alleges to support, I imagine it would probably cover most of the existing EGS player base - and really help those among us with older hardware...:) (and perhaps extend to potential player base to sell the game to)

    ... all things take time and the community potential "wishlist" of new features for EGS I am sure, is almost limitless! What is wrong with adding another to the pile...;)
