This has been an issue for a while, the CPU usage is really giving my computer fan a work out. This game has always had this performance issue, Don’t Starve and Don’t Starve Together run perfectly with my fan not topping more than 1200 RPM, Oxygen Not Included needs some attention in this area as this game is unplayable.
Running the game for more than a few minutes past the menu screen, either starting a new game or continuing an old save, the fans are whirring obscenely loudly, bumping up to 3500+ RPM.
I’ve been launching the game using the Unity Player’s configuration tool, selecting the lowest resolution I can, doing the same in game, and also changing macOS to the lowest resolution (1280 × 720) in System Preferences, but it makes no difference.
Please optimise this Klei, I really love your games and I’d love to sink some real time into ONI as you’ve worked so hard on it!
