So I’m just getting around to this game, and not reading above to avoid spoilers. And to save myself 1500 posts of reading material. Double benefit.
I’ve got a high end pc, and can run the game on max settings except in the first land area I discovered, where the Sunbeam gets shot down. Well, so far I can. I’ve found references to depths of 1200m and I’ve been down maybe 150m, so there could easily be other problem areas I haven’t found. There’s a cave system there with a lot of lithium, shale deposits, spider things, and an alien arch. If I don’t turn the settings down to low, it crashes my pc to a forced reboot every time. edit: Just in the caves; the alien building behind the forcefield was fine.
Was this a problem area, and are there a lot of areas to explore of similar architecture? I’m assuming my pc just doesn’t like a texture or shadow or something in there but I don’t know much about this stuff. Googling is useless to me as there are plenty of reports of pc crashes but I don’t know how I would go about finding out about a specific cave area in an world region I don’t even have a name for!
It might not matter since I’m terrible at playing games like this where I have to just run from everything. I expect at some point I’ll get too creeped out and will just watch a let’s play instead but I’m trying not to do that this time around.
