On a somewhat different subject, AARRGGHH! Can someone with more experience with these things than me possibly explain this?
When I use the version of Sphax Witchery from right before today's update, my frame rate is fine once the area finishes rendering; about 40-50 fps. When I updated to today's version, standing in the same spot, looking at the same thing, my rate drops to about 4 fps, and this is with my render distance set to short in both versions.
The new files added in today's version are not large and there aren't a huge number of them, so what would cause such a drastic drop in fps? This happens in some other Sphax mods as well, most recently Mystcraft (which I had to drop down to the 64x version to make it playable) and Portal Guns (which I removed completely).
Does anyone know why this happens?
