Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

World Composition, does it take a lot of resources?

Hey everybody, this is more like an understanding question. I am using a 64m² landscape which I can edit without World Composition in no time. Placing Foliage (whole map at once), aplying layers seems to be done within seconds.

But when I do the exact same things in the same map with World Composition (256) tiles it takes forever. Meanign that it takes about 5-10 minutes to apply a single layer... somtimes I even get "Out of video memory". I am wasting so much time to edit the map... it's insane. The original plan was to use a 256km² map, which I couldn't even load all tiles without crashing...(it was 1024 seperate tiles).

So I would like to understand what happens behind the scenese with world composition so I can fix and act accordingly. Leaving world composition behind and just go with one single landscape seems to be not a good idea. With a single Landscape I get about 20-25 % more FPS drop.

Reducing the Tile count drasticly improves the performance when building / placing etc. I reduced the tiles to 16 in total on a 8km x 8km landscape. Before I had 256. Is this the way to go?
