The Isle of Dawn low performance 3.0

Game mode: Any
Type of issue: Performance
Server type: All
Mods?: No
Edition: Steam / PC

Revision (#398570/34354)

Bug Description (again)

When visiting or approaching (look towards) the Isle of Dawn (Isle of Siptah expansion), game performance and FPS drop drastically.


Coming back to a issue that has not been fixed for a long time and is still present in update 3.0 on testlive!

Possible cause (again)

The light-colored grass.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Change the graphics settings to the lowest.
  2. Enable the low performance laptops settings.
    • Grass should not be rendered in-game at this point.
  3. Explore the island of Siptah
  4. At the lowest settings in the Isle of Dawn region, the game uses as much graphics card resources as in other places at high settings. :disappointed_relieved:

Even if this grass is not causing low performance, it is not working properly (it shouldn’t show up at all).

No fix is working:

  • Reinstalling the game (not work)
    • Change to a faster hard drive (not work)
  • Updating drivers (not work)
  • Change the graphic settings (not work)


More than a year after I reported the possible cause of this issue, I ask:

  • Have you reproduced this bug yet?

Can you lift the veil of secrecy @Ignasi :pleading_face: :pray: :grey_question:

I can only beg you to take care of this issue and let me finally explore the Isle of Dawn. From what I can see, this region will be my favorite location in the whole game :heart: I would like to live there, build a base, show it on the forum and enjoy the great views :eyes: every day. I want to look for new recipes and finally face the boss in the Pool of the Grey Ones. Am I asking too much?

I am definitely not the only one who has problems with this location (in the previous topic I listed places where users with similar problems spoke). On behalf of myself and others, please show us a little love.

:heart: :orange_heart: :white_heart:

In addition, on the Isle of Dawn the light-colored grass does not disappear after laying the foundations.

Thank you for your response :heart:

I understand that replacing grass or converting an existing asset forces players to download a cumulative file of textures. That is why such a large update is the perfect time to do this. Because with Update 3.0 you will update grass related files / libraries anyway :face_with_hand_over_mouth:
