Massive Performance drops during Sundown and Sunset


Recommended Posts

game runs fine on high/ultra settings > 50 fps even in areas where there is a lot going on... 

on certain ingame times of day (about 18:00 to 22:00 and a similar time in the morning) when i'm in highly modified areas, i.e. base, framerate drops quite badly < 15 fps at times - i suppose it has something to do with active light sources i suppose, but i'm not sure how it connects to the time of day... 

lowering settings gets the framerate a bit better overall, but doesn't really help with the big drops

another guy i play with has similar issues, but i don't know his specs.

It's the opposite of light - it's the shadows 😉

 

Try lowering the Shadow Distance in settings (note: tree farms casting many shadows...)

It's something that will be optimized in the future. For now you can likely solve this by turning reflected shadows and ss off. Sun shafts shouldn't cause much of a tax but turn them off if it still does. If none of the above, do what q123 said and put shadow distance to medium.
