Just a thought - maybe we can test out how fast tall buildings get built in each build. I don’t know if this would help TR with performance issues, or if it can provide them with minimum/recommended specs info, but at the very least we can gather some info for ourselves to know how our computer fares compared to everyone else’s.
I figure a standard building template could give us a rough estimate. A mod to automatically do this in a pregenerated world would be more precise, accounting for differences in stockpile placement, food stores, sleeping, and hunger, but here’s my approach:
Immediately gather enough berries for 2 days and 20-30 wood. Build a 6x6 base layer, add walls, build a floor above, walls, etc. until you have 4 floors. Add a 4-sloped roof.
I timed this build taking 29:56 on my machine. Hopefully the update later this week will cut the time down drastically!
Of note, the build went back to normal speed when the last wall block was placed and roof construction started.
The finished product:
Here’s the saved template, if interested:
