Have you played Assassins yet? The Thargoids at Geteve are fun...I had my whole scanner blinking, it was entirely useless. The screenshot is similar to yours, just that the ships are placed all around me (and surely not that many, as there's no infinite loop adding them).Ramirez wrote:the big battles I was planning for this OXP will generally use only a handful of different textures at one time, so having a large number of ships (>20 or so) fighting it out shouldn't be much of a problem.
The game did run fine for quite some time before it did slow down. However, some log message had been written very often. Once, it did fill the log with >12000 lines in 15 minutes...and the game did not run out of memory or crash!
Another Assasins mission (fair wind) is said to add about 80 ships around the player - I got the impression it's much more - and the game does run well!
Furthermore, it might not have slowed down visiting Geteve at all would I be able to use the full power of my machine. I was worried about some results from my graphics driver and did read up - just to find out that those results were correct: my graphics card is running oolite with a maximum of 25% of it's full power, GPU-Z reported low GPU load and my processor was around 30% busy.
Is there an in-game way to show the frame rate?
