One thing I notice can help out with everything is the grass or plants not as tall. I took a break from playing and played some Skyrim. I notice that they use short grass and with it easier to see items or kills. I lost a few animal and bandit kills from the tall grass in Rising World. That should even help with the graphics, less to load. I was thinking 1/4 to 1/2 the current size to be smaller. Or have kills lay on top of grass until looted or hide body. Just like saplings laying on top of grass. Snow biome and grassland grass can stay the same, just around forest and mountains. Also for future biomes to help cut the graphic demand on tall grass.
A new status update as well as a first preview video of the new version are now available!
