I noticed in general that I have around 40FPS in the DC Wasteland usually. Which is fine by me, and Im used to it anyway. However, I always wonder why because when im in the Mojave I nearly never have FPS drops. Not kidding. 60FPS all the time. In general I have the feeling that the Fallout 3 world is less optimized in terms of performance compared to the Mojave. I just noticed it now being in Point Lookout. Believe it or not buy I have mostly around 15-30FPS which is nearly unplayable for me. Also sometimes I use a gun, it stucks 0,5 seconds to load the bullet projectiles. :'D
May sound funny, but for me its not and really annoying and fun breaking.
Actually I think that the Fallout 3 world performance is the same than in the vanilla Fallout 3 without TTW. Point Lookout was also horrible in the vanilla Fallout. Why is it like that? Is it really that much more demanding or simply bad optimized? Seems like TTW doesnt really improve the performance aspect of the Fallout 3 world. Fixed contant crashing, Codec problems and added FNV features though.
Is there any way to improve the performance? Btw, no tips like, use less demanding mods or dont use NMCs texture. Believe it or not but it doesnt make a single FPS difference to my rig. Either way its running quite bad, at least the Fallout 3 world. Addionaly I sometimes get long inventory loading. However, could be mods fault. Think I improved it a bit. But that was another thread.
Whats your experience? Am I alone with that issue? Also read that Fallout is finicky about Hardware. Some peoples reported Performance issues with several Hardware combinations. Also read its the fogs fault etc. Especially in Point Lookout. But then I wonder again, why doesnt FNV has this issues and only Fallout 3? Even with TTW... So either way it must be something in the gameworld.
