Dwarf Fortress – FPS Boost

Fix for Frame Rate Death

Teemo Frame rate death can be managed in a few ways on the user end:

  • Smaller game world (New world only)
  • Shorter world history (New world only)
  • Turn off weather simulation (File option)
  • Smaller fortress size (New fortress only)
  • Fewer dwarf citizens, pets and visitors (File option; In-Game action)
  • Smaller sieging army size (File option)
  • Produce/create fewer items, armor, weapons, etc (In-Game action)
  • Destroy or trade away unwanted items, etc (In-Game action)
  • Turn off temperature calculations (File option)
  • Fortress design to optimize path finding (In-Game action)
  • Limit the free flow of large bodies of liquids so they quickly stabilize as either full or empty tiles (In-Game action)

But of course, there’s always going to be a hard limit based on the game code and how it interacts with your computer hardware…

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
