Wanting to test out a few open-world game ideas based on a lifelike urban environments using the entirety of the Worldscape/scene/bounds(Whatever you want to call it), the few sizes I have tried just drop my fps from 120 to 10-20 when veiwing all 25 default landscapes (no terrain deformation, actors, materials or textures added, but when I open the KiteDemo project in the Editor I get 75fps on average. I am also having troubles compiling lighting in my levels, I run out of memory about 30% into compilation and the Editor crashes.
I think it may have to do with configuring LOD,I’ve miss interpreted the idea of level streaming since I’m only 2 weeks into learning my first game engine.
I have looked at the Landscape Technical Documentation regarding Reccomended Landscape Sizes, but I’m not to sure if this takes Level Streaming into account or not, but I based my dimensions on the KiteDemo
- Section Size: 63x63
- Sections Per Component: 2x2
- Number of Components: 32x32
- Overall Resolution: 4033x4033
- Total Components: 1,024
- UE Version: 4.9.2
- CPU: Intel i5 4690k @3.5GHz
- GPU: Asus Strix 970 @1.11GHz
- RAM: DDR3 16GB @1800MHz
I’ll post some screenshots when I restart my comp/post gets approved
If a developer/admin/guru reads this post and want’s to do me the biggest favor, could you please explain very briefly the different mechanics that went into making such a large world space possible (I can research the rest myself), I’ve seen the 2015 GDC presentation, but it only touched upon the technical side to obtaining such a large map.
I’ll be happy to give you any more additional info or description of my problem.
