Inventory Preview causes lag / freezing, especially on first join

Game mode: [Online private ]
Type of issue: [Performance]
Server type: [PvE]
Region: [UK]

[When approaching any structure with an inventory, the game lags/freezes - particularly in the first few minutes after logging in.

Experienced by numerous players, many on high-end gaming rigs with good internet connection, low ping, m.2 NVMe drives… so it’s not potato hardware related.]

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Log in and approach an inventory-holding structure.

It’s the game reading the icons/graphics assets from the hard disk into memory. If you notice, the hard disk read light will be thrashing during that time. I would have thought that the M.2 drives would have fixed the issue, though.

An ability to toggle-off inventory preview would be helpful here - especially for players on lesser hardware… if even the m.2 players have an issue.

I’d argue that better asset loading would be superior to any option for toggling inventory preview. Of course you want icons! Yes there’s a lot of them, but why isn’t that being passively loaded in the background already?
