For some reason, when on my freighter, doing some refining for a bit, is slowly decreasing my performance. My freighter base is not all that large, it houses the following:
- 10 Storage Containers
- My Specialist Terminals (minus Exocraft Vy’keen)
- 5 Fleet Command Rooms
- Reasonably small farm (2 Stasis Device / 2 Fusion Ignitor /extras):
- 28 large trays
- 24 small trays
- 3 Large Refiners
- 4 Medium Refiners
- Some hallways, stairs, empty rooms (two floors)
- No decorations at all (yet)
When starting the game fresh, loading in at my ship in my freighter bay, I get 60 fps. My fps is limited to 60 max through the game settings. I go upstairs to enter the interior, some small drops to then be stable at 60 fps again when in my refining room. I start refining on pretty much all machines to produce mostly crops from frigate fleet resources. These crops are then turned into the 2 top selling products. As I am doing this, I can see my fps start dropping. After about 30 minutes or so it will be down to like 40 fps. As I continue even longer it seems to go down to about 25-30 fps. Not seen it drop even further, as I usually need to go get more Oxygen and gasses elsewhere. So for some reason something seems to be ‘leaking’ performance as I am refining a lot and managing inventory while at it.
Depending on what I plan on doing after refining, I am forced to sometimes reload my save to get performance on par again to prevent crashing. For example managing my fleet, which is quite demanding in the menus (22 frigates). Going planet side after refining, flying right off my freighter to a Trade Station (to sell goodies), will occasionally crash my game upon atmosphere entry, unless I reload first.
Anyone else experiencing similar? Have not tested this fps drop on a planet-side base, but would be curious to hear about it.
