Concerning Subnautica, after a few hours of play I’ve started experiencing, with increasing regularity, sudden frame drops that make the game a pain to play.
I dug up a ton of posts of users on high-end hardware complaining about the very same problem, and I have verified that dropping the graphic settings does absolutely zilch to fix it.
Some report deleting some files fixes the issue temporarily, but in turn this resets the environment to a pristine state, IOW it’s a sucky solution.
One minority opinion points at Unity’s garbage collection, and that seemed plausible because these drops used to appear after having played the game for an hour or so, but now it’s doing it after a few minutes, and the frequency has increased to intolerable levels.
So, I’m going to try and free up some memory and see if that helps, however it’s helping making this game a miserable experience (there are other things I’m not liking very much, but that’ll be for another post).
The search results are affected by a ton of noise, partly because of the game’s hardly stellar track record with performance, also because there’s a bunch of sociopathic fanboys who apparently channel their distaste for humanity by being completely unhelpful and also dicks.
But back to the point; thought I’d ask here if someone else is aware of a solution that doesn’t involve resetting the game world or giving up on the game?
