Before RoG was a thing, DS was fun little game; it now expanded into a huge universe, with several DLCs and multi-player fan base, aka welcome here! As the devs kept delivering the much promised content updates, performance and optimization is now needed more than ever. I feel my computer slowly heating up, and sometimes even have to close my Chrome/Firefox so the game could run more smoothly. Klei recently addressed this issue partially with Texture Streaming feature; they enabled a lot of performance optimizations before, like reducing built-up trash stuff in the World etc. Worked wonders! There is something even better now (link below), which will deliver smoother game play experience via both reducing RAM usage and optimized GPU usage. Please check out. It has been tested for over 4 years and was hid from us since it was a technology from the far East, China. To use this mod, you simply download a .zip, put it in the proper folder, and create a "desktop icon" (not needed for Windows) for the game. How does it work? Casual players probably doesn't care, but most of DS/DST are written in a language called Lua. There was been major updates to the language itself (from 5.1 to 5.3), and the machinery that allows Lua programs to run in our computers (LuaJIT). This "mod" uses the second. The hope is that, once enough users rely on this, Klei may as well incorporate this to their code base. Thanks to the developer @PaintDream, the whole thing is licensed freely so incorporating it into DS/DST will be a breeze. Strange New Powers we have!
