Hi so I just got back into Aftermath and have gotten pretty far into a save. Just some backstory to my problem, I have used some foresters to create a large forest for my skinners and sawmills. I have an i7 9700k cpu, GTX 1080 gpu, and 16 gb of RAM. No matter the setting, I cannot get over 20 to 25 frames normally, but whenever I hover over this thick forest my frames die and I am lucky to get like 13 frames. It is painful. Anyone have any advice. I run games like PUBG, Rust, and Tarkov on max settings getting easily like 80 frames but cannot even get half of that on a game like this on the lowest settings. I have my gpu updated, i have tried restarting my game on low, medium, and high settings, and have already tried changing priority of game in task manager to high. Any other suggestions as to some fixes would be great. As for developer comments, I saw Joanna say something on a steam forum that performance is not a number one concern which I understand, but I would like to know if some performance updates can be expected in the near future as of July 2021.

Force the game to run on your graphics card, then modify settings in graphics card manager.

Or chop down the wood and make a dedicated single forestry area.
