rendermax FPS tweaks
« on: October 20, 2018, 03:19:03 pm »

rendermax light tanks my FPS. Are there settings I can use to reduce the FPS drain?

Setting special.diffusionCount=0 keeps the graphical FPS from dropping, but it still cuts my tick rate down.

Yeah sadly thats the only one. It's very computationally intense thing as it has to read a lot of map each frame. You could reduce your GFPS max, maybe that would at least save your FPS.

Thanks! That worked.

Is it rechecking the entire map every tick?

It's checking current slice (z level) + one level down (for lava) + if there is any space up, it tries finding sun (so underground it checks nothing and outside it check as many levels as it needs to reach top)
