Optimisation suggestion

Post by thesniperdevil » Fri Aug 30, 2013 7:39 pm

Hey guys, I have noted that whenI zoom out later on in the game, the framerate stutters pretty bad. I was wondering if this was because you are rendering all the building and villager assets/ images.

Would it be possible for you to not render these at a certain level of zoom, being repalced with a large single icon for each village and each army in play. These icons owuld be similar in function as the ambassador icon, and you could use some of the icon assets from the unlocks.

this way, instead of rendering 32 buildings, 40 wandering villagers and an army of 20 villagers, you could instead render 4 icons for villages and one icon for the army.

Not only do I hope this improve performance, but its also good design- at a zoomed out level the player doiesnt need to see every villager in a village!

Make sure that your drivers are up to date :D
Do you have lags even in local zoom ?

The idea's good to add as an option though :)

nah in local zoom its fine, it only lags when I zoom right out, and there is lots going on (lots of villages, wars and resources).
