I PMed Josh. Another developer (probably at his request) involved with this game just answered all of our questions. I don't know what anyone's complaining about now we have our answers.

In case you missed the post (on the previous page) here it is:

iPhone 5, iPad 4, and iPad 3 run full retina mode with full texture resolution. Other devices scale down the texture resolution based available RAM and rendering bandwidth. The same is done for the plants.

Realtime shadows oy run on iPhone 5 and iPad 4. On other devices we could not sustain our target frame rate with realtime shadows, so they scale down to blob shadows, and eventually get turned off entirely on the lowest supported hardware. Various factors are at play when the shadows are on, including CPU culling, rendering bandwidth, and pixel fill rate. Ultimately the frame rate test is the deciding factor for the realtime shadow support, even though the hardware would technically support it.

Anybody else intending to play hardcore by shunning fast travel in favour of foot or mount only travel ?

I'm going to start that way to increase the immersion and grind my skills up.

I just hope that when my agility reaches the cap that I'm not leaping around like in Morrowind ! Lol.

I may give in and succumb to fast travel if the above method gets old after a few hours though.

I'll probably take that route, if only just to explore and gaze upon the beautiful environments and find stuff.

So roughly how large is the game world? 10's, 100's, 1000's(!) km's? Also, about how many quests/how long is the game?

Looks great and my sole purchase for tonight, cannot wait.

I agree with the suggestion of an option to switch to a lower resolution and include real-time shadows on the iPad 3 in a future update, if possible. I personally prefer games that display in a resolution somewhere between the original iPads and the new retina iPads with a good frame-rate and full effects.

I'm still looking forward to hitting that Buy button tonight at midnight, though!

Why only hit it, why not smash it?

The game is Fantastic
I am running it on iPhone 4 and it runs pretty smoothly, a couple of frame drops here and there and slight lag when im looking around but nothing major.

I have a question though, when I select Track quest nothing happens, nothing telling me where to go, no mark on the map. Am I missing something? or is this a bug?
