Game Running slow when show map
« on: April 01, 2013, 01:52:01 PM »
Hello.  You guys have always been a great help.  I dl'd the latest stable version for ubuntu 12 linux and now when I open the map It runs terribly slow.  I do have about 120 active vehicles.
if you need more information just let me know.  Thanks.  Is there any way to hide vehicle activity on the map?

It is not the vehicle activity, it is the drawing of the heightmap itself and depending on the information it is just showing. For some option it may need to scan the entire map. This this may depend on zooming levels and window sizes.

So more important than the number of vehicles are the question: How big is your map? Which minimap layers are on?

I have no ide how to adjust the minimap layers.

Click on the Selections button (the left-most right below the minimap's title bar). This will reveal a big grid of buttons that toggle the various extra layers of information on and off.
