    Regardless, as i said in my first post," Note, the main reason i'm so upset about this is the fact that my ssd is only 64gigs, and obviously after installing windows i dont have that kind of freaking space to throw to ONE game"

     

    i'm just upset(minorly so, its not like in in ra3g mode or anything) that i cant put it on my ssd, i like having my games on my ssd but this one just cant fit, i might just buy a bigger one and sell off my 64gb one, ah well.

    I'm sorry but i find this to be stupid reason to be upset over  game about. Its your own problem that you can't fit Tera on you rssd. Not Tera's fault. Seriously if your computer only has 64giges you need an upgrade. First and formest playing games always required the best pc. The most expansive and best computer are used to run games, even programers and engineers don't need over kill PC like gamer do. So a game staying relevent and and requireing you to at least keep up with tech isn't really that rare speically when its asking you to keep up with disk space which by far is the CHEAPEST thing to keep up in consider how cheap they become over teh past few  years.

    depending on your system you might just want to keep only the os ont he small 64gig ssd and put your high end games on the new one if your gonna go that route. that would remove almost all bottlenecks regarding file access on your games. after that it's all cpu and then gpu, well it's more likely cpu>gpu>hd for tera, unsure where ram falls in line. and if you do have a large storage drive for other stuff can just save your money and just install tera there. i dont think your going to see any real performance hit with this game on a standard drive.

    Agreed, or he could get 2 more 64 gB drives of the same type and raid them. That would also give him 128 GB only but it would be faster and with a parity drive.

    Raiding SSDs isn't as much faster as raiding SATA drives but it is an improvement still and the parity drive is really a blessing if something happens. just throw out the broken drive and in with a new with no data loss, and any corrupted file can be fixed.

    I am talking about raid 5 here, if your motherboard wont support it you would also need a raid card (not very expensive).

    Hell not even SKYRIM takes up 10gig, so what the HELL. This game is still in freaking beta, not even after-release patches/updates/expansions, and its already taking 30gigs? Am i really the only one freaking out over this?

     

    Note, the main reason i'm so upset about this is the fact that my ssd is only 64gigs, and obviously after installing windows i dont have that kind of freaking space to throw to ONE game. I can easily fit it on my 2tb drive but fuck, i wanted all my games to go on my ssd and before this i had no problem. Sure i had to delete a game i hadnt played in 3 weeks to install skyrim, but hey, no big deal.

     

    After clearing everything i could without breaking shit, i still need almost 20 freaking gigs to install this crap. Thats insane.

    i don't mind how big they get. the bigger they are, hopefully the more content and variation of content. that'd be the general thought. i mean, you'd hope you get some bang for your gigs.

    I don't know about how big it is, but have been downloading it for several hours now and it seems to just be going slower and slower. Rioght now it says it will take 2d 9h to install, so at this rate the beta this weekend will be over before its done.

    And no, I don't have bad internet, Verizon FIOS 20/5 connection, guess everyone is just trying to get it installed tonight before the beta begins.

    Well, perhaps it will speed up later as the evening goes on, we'll see in the morning.

    installling is purely based on your  computer not your internet. DLing part is based of your interenet, if its saying it take 2d than its your dl XD might be because everyone trying to dl it at the same time XD

    first off, the main reason people even get ssd is for 1. their operating system and 2. to put w/e games/songs/videos/etc that they use the most. they'll have a secondary, usually hdd to take the rest of their crap. that being said, i guess i cant really fault you to much since i never did say that i did have a 2tb hdd but still, it should have been obvious, who the hell runs a computer system with ONLY 64gb nowadays?

     

    secondly, i admitted my err in judgement in the post you quoted by saying it was apparently a perception of my own. tbh i've skipped all the recent AAA titles and so didnt know about the rising game file sizes. and fyi, ssd aint cheap. not that im saying its necessary either, obviously hdd's are cheap as fuck, but that's not in the scope of what my rant was about.

     

    lastly, trust me, my gaming system is more than enough to handle tera, its just i wasn't expecting the game size to be so big, which just means i'll need to get a bigger ssd which isnt a problem, or like someone else said, keep it and just get a second one, but i think i'll probably just end up getting a bigger one just for simplicity's sake.

    my rant may have come off a bit more ranty than i had originally meant it to be. im not mad or upset at all with tera and this will in no way detract me from trying it out in beta starting tommorrow when it opens.

    this is the internet, you cant hear someone typing so can't be sure if they're mostly kidding but semi serious or if they're stirfry crazy.

    Go to launcher setting and turn off P2P sharing and make sure you are not being capped.

    Installed game size is almost as installers.

    And because they are in 1 folder (main, game) = double size.

    So just delete install folder from game folder (this one with archives).

     

    I dont had 30 gb on my main SSD, so when progress stoped with error "No space.." just deleted one by one install archives, and installed successfull game.

    The main reason I didn't install an SSD drive on my gaming rig was because I calculated that I need the 250GB+ models to fit in everything I usually play. Those things still not worth the cost yet (imho). Even for my work computer I purchased an 120GB drive and I still have a backup normal hard drive (like the OP). SSDs are still not big enough to complement a decent modern game library (especially when you buy exclusively digital like I do).

     You sure that you don't have a ton of screenshots saved? When you hit "prntscreen" TERA saves a .png(large image file) screenshot in a folder located in the general TERA folder.

     

    I had heard the client would only be 30gigs or so on launch, 35 seems pretty huge.

    oh my god!!1

     

    games grow bigger , exceptions are higher and technology evolve and SO is size of a game.

    you as gamer shouldnt have small hardrives now anyways everyone mostly have 1TB atleast 

    so whats the problem really? just another tearless cry around one game.

     

    huzzzzzahh!

  • OtashiOtashi NantesPosts: 76Member

    Random troll to put TERA down ? To be honest any gaming computer has at least 500 Gb of storage nowadays, so unless you install 45 games and download 4892904 movies... no need to cry for 30 Gb

    umm ..  SSDs are still pretty small. So, having huge games to be able to run faster off SSD could be an issue. Do people even think before responding to criticism anymore?

    Vanguard is 20.

    DCUO is 20.

    Everquest (all but Veil) is 9.

    WoW (all but MoP) is 29. (I may have some old files, this is from original Vanilla patched forward)

    Rift is 10 (but I haven't updated in a while).

    Eve is 10.

    AOC is 31.

    SWTOR is 20.

    LOTRO is 15.

    I show 23.6 for TERA, with the patch from today.
    It's big, but in the ballpark.

    Yes, SSD's are pricey. Sorry.

    Some other miscellaneous data
    Windows 8 64bit clean install is 11
    Windows 7 SP1 64bit (not clean, so may have some junk) is 23
    Need to have room for temp files and caches (5G or so is usually enough), swap space (150% of installed RAM), and always try to keep 10% free. I usually say 40G for the OS and all that stuff, and anything over that is good for apps/programs.

    Your 64G SSD isn't wasted, it holds the OS fine. It's just going to be a really, really tight fit. I would get another SSD - while RAID isn't a bad idea, I wouldn't RAID it, I would just install it and make it your E: drive or whatever your third drive is, and just install TERA (and any new games you get) there. RAID is all well and good, but it makes it harder to pop the drives out and put them in another computer. On seperate drives, when you upgrade computers or whatever, you just pop the drive out and pop it back in.

    i dont know why all the surprise at the client size, comparing to skyrim too, which probably had to be kept small in order for it to work on consoles, but, with PC games there arent such limitations, it wouldnt surprise me that in another 5 years, average installation of a AAA type of game is around 100 gb, HD space is cheap after all, and drives are now often sized by the TB. image

     

     

  • LukainLukain WestmeadPosts: 593Member

    My LOTRO which is up to date 15 16gig  but it has multible expansions , 30gig is either poor programing or ever word on the game is spoken with full speach ..

    everyone knows the minimum size of a decent ssd is 120 gigs (os + games + 25% open space to keep it healthy)

     

    120 gig and higher space ssds run circles around the small ones, and cost the same or are cheaper per gigabyte.

     

    man up and buy a real hard drive son.
