The name explains itself. The ink cap is unreasonable. The current cap, “100”, is assuming that the players are on the worst possible device, which most people aren’t! Even if they are it is still unrealistic, rooms with 200+ ink(obtained through glitches) have proven that even devices as old as the iPhone 7(proven by yoes) run fine depending on the number of players and what objects are actually taking up the ink. For example rooms with 200 ink worth of physical objects would of course lag the game, where as rooms with environmental/decorational objects taking up the ink wouldn’t. Also, players will lag any room, a room filled with 40 people is going to lag no matter what, and while increasing the ink cap would mean that it wouldn’t take as many players to start lagging, most rooms don’t ever go over 30 players. A few solutions I’ve come up with for this are: 1) Increase ink cap in beta rooms to test how they run, if they run well, add it! If not? Try to work on it. 2) Remove ink cap but keep the ink bar at the top to know how much there is(not a very good idea in my opinion). 3) finally, make certain high ink objects like guns and props take up less ink. Any room that needs to go over 200% Ink is either a lag machine or an extremely detailed room, where as rooms that need to pass 100% are normal rooms that might just be really big or have a lot of detail. Now I’m not saying that you can’t make a great room with 100%, people make great games all the time without going above the limit. However, extending the ink cap would open a whole new door of potential to builders, already great rooms could be made twice as great, and all sorts of new and creative ideas would be born. 200% would be more than enough for this to become a reality, even 150% would help so much! This concludes why I think the ink cap is unrealistic, I have seen many other people complain about this same topic and would appreciate for it to be considered. Note:I’m aware changing it to “200%” wouldn’t make sense mathematically and it would instead be 100% but with a higher cap with everything costing half as much, this was just the easiest way to explain it :) -TWD
