    As far as I know that is because they changed the old crates into deco blocks. That's also why nearly all bps now need wood and plastic to make. You'll have to strip out the old crates and either replace them with the new ones or the new cargo controller and cargo expansions.

    I5 7600 , 16gb Ram , r9 380 4gb . Getting major frame drop down to single digit , virtually unplayable .


    EDIT , 18.9.3 Drivers helped a lot , but still not right .

    Edit 2 , FPS still dropping after a time , RELOADING resets this .

    Yeah it's been buggy for over a year. I hope it's because they're busy fixing the whole thing.

    This fps issue I looked into a little further, seems it does not kick in until about 10 minutes of gameplay for me, dropping from 60 to 25 and then a few minutes later dropping to 16. just while being stood there on a boat chatting in discord.

    I am also getting the frame rate drop. All settings at MAX, except bloom=off. I went from 50-60 fps to 15 fps right after I got the warning for the drone attack.

    Edit- Reloading the game returns fps to 50-60. Drones showed up as normal. After another 10 minutes, fps drops again and settles in around 20-25

    Personally, I can play at 30 fps. Below that, I have issues and will have to sit out until a hot fix.

    Hey all,

    I've been away for a while and started a fresh vanilla Survival game - is it normal for my stuff (HV's and the like ) to now have purple text above them rather than green? HV seems perfectly accessible, so I assume this is simply a palette change? Not a huge deal, but I prefer green...purple is too alien lol.

    Scoob.

    I have a 2600k (@4.6ghz) and a GTX 1070 too. Just popped in-game and I have a solid 60fps. I'm quite early-game - just built my first HV, no base, but it's running really well.

    I play at 1920x1200, most things are High, but Screen Space Reflections is Off as if DoF. Sky Reflections are Low.

    I'm in a quite heavily wooded area, and it's currently raining hard.

    I don't mean to look a gift horse in the mouth, I very much appreciate the greeble blocks, landing gear and ramps.

    -Would it be possible to scale the CV ramp to SV's and CV's. Keep the length, but scale the width down to 3 blocks and 2 blocks (to match with SV/HV doors).
    -Increase the hit points of the deco items and the landing gear and ramp to match combat steel construction. This is not game breaking, and would keep us from having to replace a ton of greeble that gets blown up fast from splash damage.
    - We need a can of soda scaled to humans that is placeable on a single block.

    they add turret as attack trigger too now , since i update to exp9 i got continuously attacks , the problem is i got 3 drones attack at 2nd or third wave , its not a problem for me to get instant attack , infact to deal with that situation , i build a turret tower BP that i made before powering on my main base and start craft ammos for my turret .

    to the devs : just why not simply add time counter ticks down to start trigger the drone attack instead turret trigger

    Those nasty drones cheated and attacked my base too early. I had not put up anything yet, just the core and some blocks... The fps drop happens after like 10 minutes of playing. I tried to put all settings on FAST, but it won't help.

    I had 50 to 70 FPS until I finished the HV. Than it dropped to 15FPS

    This is nice but it's a shame none of this is functional... unless these might become functional... I which case, kudos for laying the ground work.

    Some suggested functions for some of these devices:
    • Ore scanner /Radar (alternative model)
    • radar (and/or radar extension)
    • Manoeuvrability enhancement (like RCS)
    • FX - heat/smoke exhaust with particle effects
    • Shield device
    • Cloak device
    • Functional lights
    • Reduce air resistance/drag effect

    I've been playing for about 15 or so minutes since loading my game. I had a steady 60 fps that entire time. I just paused for a short while as I needed to do something, returning and unpausing my game sees me at 30-32fps. Note: night has just fallen in my game, so perhaps that's an issue again?

    Edit: just to be clear, a Save/Reload instantly fixes my FPS - I'm back at 60. When looking at PC resource usage before and after - so while at 30, reload then at 60 - this issue ONLY impact GPU load. I go from ~30% GPU load to ~70% GPU load in the exact same scene, with a corresponding doubling in fps - I'm vSync limted to 60. CPU load does not appear to be impacted, looking the same at 30 or 60 fps, which is odd too.

    Does a save / reload restore your FPS, as it did for me? Assuming you're single player of course.
