Post Maximizing FPS in Planetside...
I feel like this is warranted... especially with the FPS hit in the last update.

Here's a nice video I found on improving FPS for the game for those with slightly slower computers (or those with nicer computers like myself who just want a smoother experience in large battles).

There are a couple tips he gave that I would ignore if your computer runs the game reasonably well. Here's what I recommend instead:

- Run the game at 1920x1080 if you can
- Keep render distance at 3000 or higher if you can (beyond about 4000 you aren't going to be able to hit anything anyways)
- Keep vertical fov maxed always

Don't be scared by the video length, only about the first 8 minutes are useful information. You can access the file he's editing by:
- Opening the PlanetSide launcher
- Clicking the wrench in the bottom left
- Click "Open Game Directory"
- Find "UserOptions.ini"

edit: Added how to find the .ini file.

A couple additional notes...

- A big part of the FPS issue currently is server-side and/or issues with the last update. SOE will likely have this fixed soon, especially after the complaints they got from MLG.

- If you turn off shadows completely, you'll get a glitch where sunlight shines right through buildings. I suggest putting them on low rather than off.
