frame rate drops suddenly when expanding too many modules

Recommended Posts


131 - Steam - sudden lag after creating chain of modules.


I have built rather large bases with dozens of modules but this time I created a long line of modules and every chance had an offshoot inwards where I placed the two resin to create an expanded module... the idea was to create lots of fuel compressors, however I suddenly starting having lag the moment energy started to be involved, it is possible that the lag started after building the modules but I noticed when I started to use a compressor (only have a few out of all the expanded modules as compressors so far) that I had 1/4 -1/2 of the frame rate or less at moments.
