These are some tricks/tips to help you optimize your game, hopefully these work for you, if they don't then make sure to tell me because I'll try to find other ways to fix the FPS and edit this post. CONFIG File: • Step 1. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\storage • Step 2. Notepad++ - http://bit.ly/2m6m7UK • Step 3. After installation, go back to the storage folder and right click on the "Starbound CONFIG" file, then click "Edit with Notepad++" • Step 4. Press CTRL + F and search for "vsync" without the quotation marks, once you find it, erase the word "true" beside it and put "false". Press CTRL + F again and search for "renderSleep" again, without the quotation marks, erase the word "true" beside it and replace it with "false". • Step 5. Click "File" and then save it. • Step 6. Go back to the "Starbound" folder, there will be two folders called "Win64" and "Win32" these stand for "Windows 64/32 bit" In order to find out whether your computer is a 64 or 32 bit, follow the next step. • Step 7. Click the start button and type "This PC", right click on "This PC" and click "Properties", look at "System type" and it should tell you if you have a 64bit or 32bit computer. • Step 8. After that, close out the This PC properties and go back to the "Starbound" folder, click on either Win64 or Win32, which bit you have. • Step 9. Right click on the "Starbound.exe" and on the top go to "Compatibility", there will be two options are the bottom that say "Run this program as administrator" and "Disable display high scaling on DPI settings" check these both and then click apply and OK. Mods: • Step 1. If you don't know how to install mods then go to Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\mods and keep the folder open • Step 2. Download these mods: ○ No shadows 1.0 - http://bit.ly/2mZ6gsB (increases performance by disabling point light shadows through a patch of the lighting.config. All point lights will act as regular lights. The decrease in atmosphere will hopefully be made up for in an increase in frame rate.) ○ FPS-Booster v3 - http://bit.ly/2mcCUXx (Backgrounds cause large amounts of lag, on your graphics card[Or otherwise known as GPU]. What FPS-Booster does is for those low end computers out there, is removes them so players can still play. So playing on things such as labtops with poor graphics chips can still play, Provided they got processing power & arn't on power saving mode!) ○ FrackinUniverse FPS Boost 1.0 - http://bit.ly/2muVQTJ (Some removed code and image parallax) • Step 3. After downloading these, drag the mod folders into the "mods" folder. • Step 4. Start up your game and they should be downloaded! I hope this helped!
