Howdy Ladies and Gents,
I just noticed a weird correlation, and thought I would pass it along - general system performance can be improved by zooming the GUI in on the activity you want to complete.
I was trying to build a building, with only 10 settlers, materials ready and no other outstanding assignments, and none of them would take up the materials for more than half a day. I zoomed in on the construction site, and all of sudden they sprang to life and started throwing it up crazy fast. Zoom back out, performance goes back down, and work stops.
I prefer to have a bird’s eye view so I can monitor multiple process, but since my building completely stops, I don’t have a choice. My computer will play most new games on at least medium graphics, and about half on high quality graphics.
Thought this would be a good place to look for efficiency improvements.
