Outdoor FPS fine, major drops in interiors

Recommended Posts

With the "cutting edge" Bethesda engine knowledge focused in these forums, I thought this would be the good place to ask. :)


Common sense would suggest that if one's getting solid high FPS in the outdoors, interiors should be a piece of cake too. No the case here - I'm getting 58 fps (capped) almost everywhere in the Capital Wasteland and other outdoor cells (Megaton, isolated DC squares etc.), but also drops of up to 25 fps in certain interiors; a recent example in my curent playthrough being certain spots of the Red Racer factory.


What might be causing this? Where would one start looking for possible causes?

Assuming you mean Realistic Interior Lighting, nope - almost no FPS difference between it turned on and off.


I guess this might just be the engine. The ~60 fps I'm getting in exteriors is pretty finely tuned (it does actually drop a bit in select few areas, such as Bigtown), so it might just be the case of anything that's poorly optimized showing as a noticeable drop.


It's still playable, just annoying. "Good" old Gamebryo. ;)
