@Dellamorte:

Regarding:
Reduce Resource Lag to improve game performance.
It is most likely as simple as reducing its texture map by at the most 3 or 4 "n" within the following Pseudo code equation "Unanchored_Resources_Bitmap_Texture = (2^n)*(2^n)*(2^n)" which would significantly reduce the amount of shading / texturing required upon each unanchored resource; If a slider in the options menu were provided to permit users to manually adjust this variable within our own gaming environments as our campaigns progress, this suggestion would represent a gesture towards the optimization of which were indeed mentioned as this suggestion does not infer in any way, shape, manner, nor form that the "number of types of resources available to the player within the gaming environment" be impacted.

Mine was a sarcastic remark because it is as obvious as say "cook the chicken before you eat it" I think anyone could work out that this is a thing that will happen.

It is gratifying to know that a suggestion concerning the optimization of already-present in-game content will be implemented with all due haste; would you happen to know when the community can expect this to be available as part of a stable release?

Minor optimisations are happening all the time but you will not see major optimisations until the game is about ready to move to 1.0 release. It is a small team so the time is best spent on content for the most part, if performance drops too much on the lowest recommended system specifications the devs bump it up the priority list.

TD;DR: in short don't expect major optimisation till just before full release.

Please grant players the ability to display their instantaneous FPS on-screen during gameplay.

Please Create a Geo-Corp Themed SCU capable of storing resource chunks to augment the GSO block-holding SCU which would benefit large scale crafting endeavors.

Please fix the directional accuracy of waypoints beyond 1000 units of distance away displayed on the minimap to display the correct vector.

As Intonated here Please Restrict each Tech to only one Cab; One cab of each type (Player / AI variants) of each Corporation would probably best to permit reasonable redundancy.

Otherwise I am quoted very wrong!
I apologize if you are of the opinion that I misquoted you; the reference to your post was merely an homage to what I felt would be a good overall suggestion which will hopefully be implemented in a future version of Terratech.

No offense taken. I just wanted to clarify
Completely understandable; I too would like to be equally clear regarding the suggestion and also agree with your additional statement below:

I see no point in restricting a tech to only one cab
Which Agrees with my initial suggestions's wording below:

One cab of each type (Player / AI variants) of each Corporation would probably best to permit reasonable redundancy.
By Suggesting that only one of Each Cab Type Any single tech could have approximately 10 tech-operable cabs; four of which are accessible by the player directly. This would provide, in my opinion, more than ample redundancy while also preventing techs from having Duplicates of any specific cab type.

I have seen (and built myself) many techs that use more than one cab of one coporation.
Some of them just for the look, some of them with a reason (e.g. tech in a tech for defense).
Personally, I simply don't like the idea of a restriction to use only just one cab of a corp in a tech.
The more I think about it, the more I even feel like using two cabs from different corps in one tech is wrong.

Just some examples of one corp multi-cab techs:

Let's discuss this elsewhere (if needed), I think both our points are taken and considered by the devs.

I think we need a more high-caliber gun than the megaton cannon for making tanks and/or mini nukes ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° )

New option in AI menu to turn the AI in an Enemy so we can test the owners AI-tech better instead of rebuild AI that non- and DLC player can can test Better. As an Turret i can only test how good my firepower is but not how good my defences is because there is no one shooting at me and vs versa i can not turn the AI tech in defence mode because i as a tester can not see if it reacts as it should for game play.
