I will admit, I love this game. I love the space enviroments. But when I go into envirments like these:

I have to turn on Half Resolution because some artist went overboard on texture mapping. On the First two, the "Black Mass" as I call it EATS my FPS. I run this game no problem at 60FPS all the time except for these maps. Then its more like 15FPS. The third one has so much "Green Mass" in the background that its the same.

Can an art team member do something about this? Like say, reducing the texture resolution of the backgrounds form whatever it is (I'm assuming its above 2400x2400 tbh) to something more manageable?

I have similar problems, can those "gas masses" be done away with entirely?

I don't have a problem with the backgrounds at all. Maybe the problem is your graphics card... have you tried lowering some of the graphics settings to see if that helps?

Its name is "Klingon Scout Force" if i remeber right, when you've killed the bops/raptors/nag'vars and turrets, you go to a nebula at the far back of the map, whenver i get near it goes all red and laggy

Oh come on, you are seriously expecting Cryptic to lower the quality of the game to suit YOUR setup? Thanks a lot, I would suggest you get a better GPU for starters, or check out Pac Man, that shouldn't stretch your rig too much lol

They just tried to give you more than just black space everywhere.

THe real problem is the flickering of the backgrounds that is back in the game since S6.
