Playstation Framerate Problem

As most of you on the PS4 or PS4 Pro (like myself) know, we have a slowly growing framerate problem as you progress thru the game. I wanted to make a thread so we can hopefully remedy this IF possible. If anyone has any success in reducing the stutter please share with us.
I have tried a couple things but no success.
1. Rebuild Database, I tried this and it felt like it didnt do anything
2. Avoid building certain structures (This one is currently still ongoing, I havent found any specific building but the framerate drops when I get closer to my home base)

Please share any info you might think be helpful in finding exactly whats going on here

    On a PS4 Pro here. The framerate is all over the place for me. Sometimes, with very little on the screen, it slows to a crawl. Sometimes, with a lot on the screen, it remains smooth. Transitioning from say your Seamoth to a base or surfacing causes massive framerate drops but sometimes it doesn’t. You’re not alone here. It just feels like the game needs a serious tune-up and better hardware optimization for the PS4 and PS4 Pro platforms. On a Pro, I would expect this title to be silky smooth. Hopefully, we’ll get a new patch soon that will smooth things out. I wonder if regular PS4 (not Pro) users are seeing the same problem.

    I did clear the cache in my ps4 and there definatly was an improvement. It still has framerate issues but I do suggest ALL that have this issue to do this to give you some improvement

    To delete PS4 cache
    1. Turn off Playstation 4. Wait until it is completely off. Do not put into rest mode
    2. Unplug PS4 from electrical outlet for at least 30 seconds
    3. Plug in PS4 and start up
    4. Cache will be cleared

    Framerate gets progessively worse as you progress through the game on PC too so it is not just a problem with PS4.

    Im somewhat new to Subnautica. Its this framerate problem a newer problem or has this always been a PC issue and now it just has been transferred over to consoles?

    I did find that flood lights significantly increase frame rate around your base. So if you have any form of artificial lights that you built around your base deconstruct them. This will help

    Would either of you be able to share a video of the base and slow down? If you send an in-game feedback and mention "madsauce" in the text field I can try to reproduce the issue and pass it along to Panic Button team.

    I've had similar issues on my PS4 Pro. I've heard that disabling the pro's over sampling and using boost mode helps when outputting to a 1080p TV. I'm just starting a new hardcore game so I won't know for sure if it helps until my base building has advanced further.

    Disabling oversampling on the PS4 Pro didn't help. Still have frame rate stutters. One area that always seems to suffer from it is at the leviathan skeleton side to the lost river. Travelling from there to the alien research centre causes the game to stutter for 20 seconds or so.

    Not sure how to do this, but I also have a PS4 with framerate issues with a medium sized base. I could try to send a video but i think i need a better expleination on how/where to send and capture video on PS4.

    I'll pass along this information to the team at Panic Button and see if any more details would be helpful, thank you all for the responses. Sorry for the major, progressively worse, slow downs you all are experiencing.

    Yep. I had to build my base as small as possible, and couldn't use a moonpool in order to keep the FPS in respectable limits. (I'm using a PS4). It doesn't matter though, their save glitch "feature" reverted me back hours, so it's like I had never built it at all! :D

    Unfortunately no, no video but if you can get a nice view of the base that is better than nothing(it will send us a screen capture).

    I notice that these posts were made a few months ago, I am thinking of getting this game on my PS4 because my computer is a toaster lol. I was wondering if most of these bugs/glitches have been fixed?
    I’m fine with a minimum of 20 FPS as I am used to it on my laptop.
