I can average 25-45 fps generally in NS on i'd say 1/2 of the maps, 20-35 on others and on some its just unplayable.
Using no custom skins or anything. the default models are already low poly enough, and i've got my config setup to pretty low setup of dynamic lights, polys, decals etc
kestral, ulysess and tanith are good examples. i dunno if the maps have alot of extra textures than others, more poly's than others or what but those maps are HUGELY fps intensive compared to like others. now its hardly ever a problem in CO maps, only had 1 map be that way in CO and I cant remember its name. But in NS maps like those listed above theres just something adding alot of fps hogging
anyway to tell what it is? are there by chance low texture/low poly versions of those maps that are compatible with server versions of them? need to know cause like 1 out of every 3 or 4 NS maps is just unplayable. Though Beta 5 did net me a nice 5-7 fps boost all already (on a low end system thats always a good thing), this is still there
