I was really looking forward to this patch because it sounded like it would improve performance around big bases but I see absolutely no difference. I made a video showing you what happens: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5et09x
I carefully tracked my FPS in certain areas last night before the patch, then compared today after the patch and it's EXACTLY the same.
Because of this 1 clan on our server (The Journey), Cranberry is unplayable. My system gets 120 FPS in most places, but as soon as I get near Cranberry, it drops to 30fps and becomes very delayed.
I'm supportive of this game but changes from the patch are hardly noticeable.
My System Specs: I5 4690k overclocked to 4.6ghz, 2 GTX 970's overclocked in SLI, 16 GB DDR3 Memory. 1440p resolution, 1100 render distance, medium quality. My FPS @ 1440p drops from 120 to 30s in Cranberry, after the patch. It's not just me, my nephew is on a similar system but GTX 1070, playing at 1080p and his FPS drops just the same.
Positive improvements I have noticed: I haven't CTD'd yet today. Farming was more snappy but that is usually the case after a server restart. The real test will be after several days.
