I have also experienced this with the high-res terrain. I had to switch it off because it was making Factorio unplayable. It appears to mesh poorly with radar vision coverage, and gets progressively worse as you perform the following actions:npuldon wrote:MORE IMPORTANTLY, however, is the crazy FPS drop issue when zoomed out :/ If it were not for that I would probably still use this mod, as would many others.
1.) place more radars
2.) place radars with a larger vision area
3.) explore more terrain gradually throughout the game
4.) zoom your view out
5.) zoom in on radar vision area
6.) move fast--ex. riding in a train
The issue appears suddenly as VRAM runs out, and without warning it can cripple your machine, requiring whole minutes just to load the task manager to quit the game.
My recommendation, as painful as I'm sure it will be to you, is to remove about half of the terrain tiles. You have several gradients to each terrain type, and they look simply amazing. But I'd bet there would be a pretty substantial performance increase if some of the in-between tile types were removed, and there were fewer total gradients. It would also solve tile limit issues with other mods.
