Low FPS while outside (tes3mp)

Hello, I'm running into big issues with my FPS while I'm in exterior cells in tes3mp. While I'm indoors my fps is up in the 100+, but when I go outside it drops to around 5, sometimes 1 fps. This only happens while I'm using the openmw engine, specifically TES3MP.

If it helps, these are my computer specs: ---ASUSTek Motherboard 9FX PRO R2.0 ---AMD FX-6300 ---ST1000DM003 ---AMD Radeon Strix R9 390 ---G.Skill Ripjaw 8GB x 2 ---H80i v2

Thanks!

Press F3 a couple of times to get detailed information on why the FPS is slow. I would guess it is the physics that hits the roof, it's usually the case. If it's not specifically the physics thread that causes it, you might get helped if you use this mod.

It does seem to be the Physics that's taking most of the draw, let's see if the mod will work too.

Downloaded the mesh override and it did not seem to work. but at the same time it didn't show up in my data files so I'm not sure if I did it right.

TES3MP is more demanding than main branch OpenMW. Have you tried to see what fps you get on single player OpenMW?

Just tested OpenMW, and it does appear to be just tes3mp. I don't believe it's a hardware issue, because like I said, I had a laptop that ran it better.

Can you try setting your OPENMW_PHYSICS_FPS to a lower value like 30 or 20 and reporting back on the results?

OPENMW_PHYSICS_FPS is explained here:

How would I change the environmental variables?

Found where environmental variables are and how to apply it. It seems to be working now, thanks ma'am.
