I had an interesting thing happen in the scenery editor over the past few days where performance has dropped massively when editing. I have seen it before in this scenery however now its is constant.
The problem seems to be tied to the hierarchy tree, when I collapse the tree back to the root categories the performance goes back to expected however when I start clicking through to move an existing object, it starts to expand the tree and the frames drop and eventually down to about 1fps.
To get it back into a workable state I have to re-categorize the legacy hierarchy to collapse the tree.
It works ok when adding objects as the new objects are placed which appear in the root of the hierarchy tree. The problem is only happening when the tree is expanded.
The project I'm working on is very large (17-18MB XML file) now shapefiles have been embedded into the XML. (of which we have a lot of)
I'm just wondering if I'm starting to hit some limits of the scenery editor. This happened fairly suddenly EG not gradually.
I also understand the project I'm working on is very extensive and probably pushing things a lot.
The scenery compiles fine and displays in the game engine just fine out of dev mode.
This issue started before SU9 so I don't think its patch related
