Here's one of the updates you've all been looking for! FPS boost!

Overall your FPS should about double* it seems in most cases. You can access this by pressing F1 -> Options ->

*Depends on your own personal hardware and what else you may have running


Granted you could use this command before, but to anyone who used it already they quickly realized it had drawbacks. Originally it made clothing flicker like mad, but the GMod devs changed it some awhile back but it still turned everyone's clothing to pure white. This was still less than ideal for trying to track down someone specific. After much thought of how to do this properly, @Fredy and I have created a way which should allow all colors to remain. You will not lose any clothing or metals for your vehicle and can still customize to your heart's desire. We may even be able to add some more things that previously we were limited to doing, and no change in content needed more than likely.

There were some odd results at times while we tested this out to get it all functioning, but all of them seem to have been resolved so we are pushing this update out. Occasionally cars may appear incorrectly, same with players or NPCs. It is yet to be seen how often this might happen with a full server, hopefully all you notice is an increased number of FPS.

I hope you all enjoy this and I will be working on a few other ways which should hopefully boost FPS in their own way, but will be more noticeable in the way they change things.

Known issue: In demos you will likely find NPCs as pure white with no clothing texture at all.

Some issues I found are

  • Some cars are white unless you turn it off and respawn said car
  • Some clothes are the PH logo ones
  • The teeth look like you have overbite :tunafish:

Lovely to see it finally fixed up (partially from reading Shaun's reply.) I'll be sure to try it out the next time I am on the server, and play PERP at a faster framerate than my grandmother reaching for her cup of tea finally.

This update is the best. This fixed everything for me, my game doesn't freeze anymore, no lagspikes, and my fps is constantly 60 frames now. And also the white clothing is gone. Thanks :D

With this update making FPS generallu better could we see a slight increase to render distance in the future? For me this is probaly one of the biggest issues as you can barely see 60m infront of you.

I did find a notable general FPS increase with this new option, however I tended to have a lot more lag spikes, and things felt a lot more unstable. Not to mention the addition of the terrifying PH Virus. Me and Dilan decided to rp that it was a virus and had a 'safezone' at hicktown, was fun.
