Greetings and salutations. This is my first post here. Been playing around with SM local play for about a week now and learning the ropes. Lots of youtube tutorials to help me along the way. I’m an old EVE Online vet with some kewl history until they made changes a few years back that I just didnt like. Currently do a lot of minecraft SP . PC handles both games really well, as well as SM-no lag at all. ASUS MB, 8 GB DDR3, GeForce 9800 GTX++(its dated but still a great graphics card). Finally put together a makeshift shuttle, factories, build block, deathanator, down on a alien planet. Today got really really interesting-OMG! What a light show! I started noticing blue and red laser lights skimming arcross the sky with ever increasing intensity coming from all around. At this point lag set in for the first time since I started playing. It really became unplayable. I stood in awe and watched. I pulled up my nav panel and could see quite a few pirate and scavenger ships were in local. Then the ground around my base camp started to disappear, as well as chunks of my power reactors, factories, shuttle parts. Oh no! Its an incursion!! In a state of panic, I ran for cover but no place was safe. Lasers shooting all around. My poor shuttle (only an hour old) was gone! The crater around me kept getting deeper and deeper until I finally fell into the planets core. I absolutely luv SM! For me it combines aspects of two games I’m fond of-Eve Online and Minecraft. I hope that one day some of its navigation and GUI would more closely mimic Eve Online’s nav controls(targeting, orbital ranges, keep-at-range, etc.) But for now, I have boatloads of fun to look forward to with SM. Before I can fully enjoy it though, I’ve got to get a handle on the lag that happened today, and what I can do to minimize it. I have fps set to 60, and 4GB ram allocated for it although system usage has always shown about 1.5GB used of the 4GB allocated. Didn’t get to see what it may have spiked up to during todays incursion event. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Hoping to make some new friends. Cheers!
