I started playing ACEO this week after a while of downtime.
I have switched computers a few times in the last year because of my job, and on my current rig I get lag spikes every ~10 seconds once my airport reaches ~1000 pax. I have not experienced this before on any other machine.
UPDATE: I also get this behavior in an all-GA airport once enough flights get going. So it does not appear to be a terminal design or pax issue.
I have a 2019 Mac Pro. It is complete overkill, and I know it is not a “gaming machine,” but I am wondering if this is a hardware-related bug.
I have tried tinkering with the graphics settings to no avail, so I do not think it is graphics related. Beyond that I have no ideas.
3.3 GHz Xeon W-3235 (12-core)
96 GB RAM
AMD Radeon Pro W5700X (16 GB GDDR6)
I should note that the game plays fine besides this. It’s like it hiccups every ~10 seconds. I have played some other casual games (ATS for instance) without any problems.
Devs, any ideas? I’m happy to submit a bug report if it’d be helpful.
