Performance Survey


Note: This survey is re-started every time a new public patch is released!

The performance survey aims to gather and track the performance of the different patches. These insights are extremely valuable, so thanks a lot for you taking the time to share your data with us! :-)

PLEASE FOLLOW the Instructions so we get results that are comparable! Thanks a lot in advance!

Most important: Never move the mouse, change view or anything else if the instructions do not say so!

For preparations, please open the OPTIONS -> Graphic Settings and deactivate Vsync

When starting a new Survival-Singleplayer game for this test, please always use

- Preset: EASY

- Either use AKUA or OMICRON 

..and, as soon as the game screen is loading, hit F8 to show the in-game FPS counter!

Tips:
FIRST read through the questions asked in this survey before starting the game!  (see the full list below!)
- Have a sheet of paper and note down the data, as you won't have the time to tab back-and-forth.
- If standing still and the FPS count is jumping between numbers, always take either the lowest or the average.
