Bug/Issue Grappling Hook/Rain Physics cause FPS Drops

    Tested On: Multiplayer & Single Player
    Character: Casual
    View Screenshot: Image 1, Image 2 (1.2.3b)

    Bug: If the Grappling hook is extended to its max length, as well as bending over blocks it severely drops the frame rate. This can be noticed even further by using 2 grappling hooks at the same time. In addition, the new rain/storm effects cause also mediocre frame drops.

    Windows 7 64-Bit Home Edition
    AMD FX-8350 8-Core
    NVidia GTX 960 4GB
    16 GB RAM

    Additional Notes: Tried this on servers as well, more players online, even more frame rate drops.
    How to Resolve: None yet.

    I saw a tweet recently from one of the devs asking about people with AMD processors and having lag issues. Might be worth looking into.

    i use AMD (with an Intel backup to fall against if the AMD is unable to handle it or disabled) and i don't get any lag

    also, i understand y u call it severe frame rate drop, but i call it ok. for me a severe frame rate drop is 2-3 FPS at max

    A drop from 60, 50, 40, or even 30 FPS down to 16 would be severe. That is a loss of between 25 and 50% frames.

    Not sure how you have a backup processor when AMD and Intel require different motherboards.

    I have an AMD GPU and Intel on my CPU. If one can't handle it, the game may switch to the other if it can

    That is completely different from what I said. GPU =/= CPU.

    GPU=/=CPU, but i still hav SB running on AMD with no lag

    On an AMD graphics card, which isnt what I was talking about. I was talking about AMD CPUs.
