Is there a way for me to increase it other thank lowering my resolution.
FPS Keeps dropping
Right now, there's still a bunch of world-loading/rendering optimization that I need to finish... but if the game is starting to lag after a playing for a while, sometimes just save+quit -> load clears it up for a while.
If the game is running slow right off the bat, then not really sure at this point besides lowering the resolution. Do you know what kind of video card and processor your machine has?
Just for comparison... I do most of my development on an older Thinkpad (Core i5-3320M CPU) - that just has a non-dedicated Intel HD 4000. It runs it more or less okay; not perfect. Does get occasionally sluggish though.
I had what felt like a huge speedup when night fell and the vision range dropped.
Also when driving far enough away from the start location to unload the chunk.
I also got the impression that resource gathering was causing the slowdown, so between the two I'm wondering if it is proportional to the number of auto-collecting resource instances you've seen.
