  • FPS loss when cluster bombs use - fixed.

Define fixed?
I feel like it is going to be a slight FPS increase

I haven’t had a chance to try it yet… It was my understanding that CBUs caused crippling FPS hits prior to the patch…so even if there is only a slight dip in FPS that would be preferable to the absolute slideshow that many were reporting. I’ll be curious if people have found it better… I just looked through the DCS Forums but didn’t see any specific mention of people’s experiences with CBUs after the patch…

Bang on the money, just tested this out there and found that my fps was dropping much much less now with dropping 1 CBU-87, I even dropped 6 of them and found that frame drop was surprisingly less than what I expected “might be even less than 1 of the old CBU’s”. I’m not sure but I think they have changed the particle effects of the CBU.

Wonder how particle effects will work in DCS World 2 / EDGE… Hopefully a big improvement…
