[] Frame drops near connected areas

I know this is a bad thing to talk about at this early stage in development, but I wanted to mention the insane frame drops in the latest update. It drops to around 15 frames. It mostly happens near connected areas like the night club (probably the best example) and casino. But I think I even got frame drops in the middle of the plaza sometimes. Changing settings did not help.

Again, I’m sorry for mentioning this, but I thought it was worth mentioning.


Confirmed, got drops in the Nightclub and Casino areas most particularly.

Same here

This also happens for me.

We haven’t done any optimization

Thanks for verifying this though, I noticed it too last night when I ran a quick test.
It might be something with the staircase but I’m really not sure yet, I’ll profile it soon.


I do think it has something to do with that area. As the theater doesn’t drop down frames NEARLY as much as the Nightclub/Casino.

Maybe the railing is just too damn awesome, the game can’t handle it… (it’s a pretty sick railing)

Thanks for your report! This has been forwarded straight to our Trello board. You can track its status there (it takes a couple minutes to show up on Trello).

The entire railing is about 1,900 polys, which wouldn’t call for such a drastic performance change. I’m willing to assume that the stairwell just conveniently in a location that also happens to be rendering a lot of other areas.

We found the issue with the frame drops and we’ll be patching it in the next update.
