    Explain it so that others can make use of it, too, if they run into the same issue.

    Streaming
    Content Streaming — Sets the client's download streaming behavior.

    • On Demand asks the game to download content only when the game requires it. This setting is useful for those who have data caps to worry about. This
      setting may cause issues of models popping in.

    • Idle will stream in content while your connection is generally idle during gameplay. This is useful if you're going to be playing in the same map for some time, so that the general impact to your gameplay should be minimal.

    • Max will stream-in content as fast as it possibly can. This is most like leaving the launcher to fully patch before playing. The Streaming Client will prioritize items you interact with in your inventory, wardrobe, gem store, etc. When a piece of UI content is interacted with, if the content isn't already on disk, it will overlay the spinner to indicate that the content is being downloaded. Do note that if you interact with a bunch of inventory items it could degrade performance as those items are given much higher priority. Once downloaded it may take a few moments before the item displays on screen.

    Unsure what option they mean tho maybe idle?

    And I didn't get whether they meant "I had Steam running in the background, which was causing the issue" or "Running Steam while playing the story mission magically solved the issue". Forming proper sentences can help. ;)

  • someone said they had steam running in background and it oddly fixed the disconects in story mode (something about it constantly being active looking for updates) so i tried same and after 6 disconects at same exact spot, it suddenly worked

    Thats is odd indeed but nice to see it somehow fixed it.
