Re: Performance issues

Okay, /now/ I'm starting to see slowdown. 30 minute game, entire world is ocean, about half to three quarters of the world has basic fish on it (clownfish or mackerel). Occasional bouts of jerkiness, like originally described. My suspicion is that it's something to do with the towny/animated animal ...

Re: Performance issues

Ran a 30-minute game, did essentially nothing, no slowdown. Ran a 30-minute game, filled the entire world with ocean and fish, also no noticeable slowdown yet (I'm in the process of doing it right now). Sneaking suspicion it's something to do with the townies? Although the behaviour coinciding with ...

Re: Suggestions for too-sensitive greed & insane armies

You guys do realise that you can "humble" a village by having the swamp and rock giants attack the villages town, armies and angry mobs. Do that enough times and the greed goes down to 0. I think you have to do it more to get the desired result if the village is larger, but with a village doing a l...

Re: Performance issues

Patching display driver has not helped.

I've noticed that occasionally the slowdown coincides with an autosave - it's slow, I see the message 'game autosaved' just as it stops being slow. But I'm not sure whether that's just an accidental correlation.

Re: Suggestions for too-sensitive greed & insane armies

Second the suggestion that towns should get an innate awe bonus from their prosperity. I assumed the rate of greed growth depended on the resource gap, but if that's not the case that's a change that should happen as well (because otherwise awe is too binary - you either have enough and it's great, ...

Re: Performance issues

Windows 7 I'm looking at doing a display driver update now, will let you know whether it helps later, but it's at least moderately up to date. I have the steam version, it verifies successfully. Can't try reinstalling right now (time pressure), will try it at some point in the future. I can play oth...

Performance issues

Hi, I've been having significant performance problems when trying to play Reus, usually when it's starting to get into midgame. Specifically, I get bouts of the framerate and the game tick dropping into the single digits, combined with static in the audio. It gets worse the more I zoom out, it tends...
