Oh my god. 2.5.2 is out on the main branch so i took the plunge and updated.
How in hell can 2.5 be considered an upgrade at all.
The color palette is awfully cartoonish
The ground textures are utter #%&*$#, vastly inferior to 1.5
Abysmal loading times
It's literally a downgrade over 1.5 in every single facet! (except finally they're doing something about the sound, small mercies)
