Want to start a discussion regarding performance in the latest dev build (2617). I have played the last 4 or 5 builds, and this one seems (to me at least, very subjective here) to be running very poorly compared to the previous few. I have watched the Lua performance go up to close to 95% and stay pretty constantly above 70%. I have had to pause the game frequently to let the Lua finish so the Pathfinder can catch up. When I do this it takes 30 seconds or so but the pathfinder skyrockets to 90% or so for a bit, before going back down and the Lua going up. I have yet to see the performance idle go above 3%.
(Note: I am fully aware this is an alpha and these are dev builds, so no performance is guaranteed or expected, but as a developer myself, I would want to know if change that were made in a build significantly affected performance…)
Edit 1: I am seeing this issue with only the starting 7 hearthlings and only one building constructed, nothing to fancy or late in game.
