minimap and performance|
i'm pretty sure the bad performance some players have, is related to the minimap.
someone remembers there was a freeplay patch for stalker shoc? it was somehow official but it wasn't finished. it was really laggy and fps were bad because the minimap showed all friends, enemies, creatures and secret stashes. someone wrote how to disable this in the forum, but i can't remember his name. i changed the gamedata files a little bit, that only the secret stashes were shown. then it ran without these laggs and fps were much better.
if you look at the unzoomed minimap in cs, you can see that the big red dots move from time to time. every camp (enemy,neutral,friend), secret stashes and current missions are shown. i guess it would be much better for the performance, if some of these things would be disabled.
maybe it would be enough to reduce the updateinterval, but i don't know if this is possible through mods.
