13.9 Major Performance Hit after deep Exploring

Post by OkariDraconis » Wed Jul 20, 2016 11:46 pm

In my current save, I went out an explored in my power armor, and pissed off every bitter in the process...

After i explored good amount of the area around me my FPS dropped from 50+ to 34, additionally, I swear the game is simulating much slower, everything seems to move really slow now.

Anyways, here is the save

I wish had a previous save, but I don't.
FYI, not mods installed, just trying to go for achievements :P

Just loaded the save and can confirm that both FPS and UPS drop. This is due to the enormous numbers of biters that have been aggro'd, by recharting the map and looking it appears as though many of the biters are 'stuck' in place.

If you run this command:

Code: Select all

/c game.forces["enemy"].kill_all_units() 

all the biters are killed and the FPS/UPS releases back to normal.

but then my game is no longer eligible for achievements... which is what I'm primarily doing with this save :P

Guess I will have to go manually clear them all out.. which I don't want to actualy do since that will raise the evolution high at that point

Thank you though. I'm hoping I don't need to start a new game to try and go for the achieves

Depending on where the aggro'ed biters/spitters are stuck, you might be able to just kill them, while leaving (most of the) the spawners alive. That might take a little bit more work, but that would be the price to pay to keep your evolution in check :)

Thanks for the report,

This is reasonably not a bug in the game, more that you are behaving in a way that causes the game to do a lot of extra work

From what I know there is a mechanics that should destroy stuck biters that can't path to their target.
It might be a bug for this part since it seems to have failed and biters are stuck and using up lots of CPU resources?

Depends on what you mean by “path”. The problem here was that there was a big amount of biters waiting for the pathfinder to become available. I made it so that they'll give up eventually.

Will it also help with biters and forests?

I had a surprise moment when on big foray into biter land to reclaim it my fps tanked after group of maybe 50 biters tried to attack me through forest.

Depends. Maybe.
