I am playing Stonehearth on my laptop at the moment and while it runs okay sometimes, at other times it runs extremely slowly. I’ve looked on the recommended specs and I’m fairly certain my specs surpass those, however I might be wrong.
I can run Stonehearth well on the lowest settings possible and my laptop’s specs are:
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 620, 8256 MB
CPU: Intel Core i7-7500U @ 2.7 GHz
RAM: 16 GB
OS: Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
The recommended specs for Stonehearth aren’t very much, but since the game is in alpha and have some performance issues when you have many hearthlings, I’m going to guess you’ll have some lag spikes at the least.
What I do is put a Hearthlings cap at 15 and it helps.
My settings in game are at the lowest pretty much, I did manage to force the game to prioritise my AMD card and not the Intel graphics and now it runs a bit smoother, but still not amazing, especially at night.
