I’ve been running on a lower resolution lately to allow me to keep some of the higher graphic settings turned on while keeping my frame rate up. 1280 x 720 from 1920 x 1080.
However, as you can see, changing the screen resolution also removes a lot of screen real estate and makes the game feel a bit more claustrophobic.
Therefore, I suggest a separate selection for ui resolution, giving us a ui overlay which should improve performance.
Alternatively, give us a finer degree of control over UI placement and sizing so we can avoid wasted space. I do understand this would require some degree of testing, as trying to make text legible at lower resolutions may be more difficult.
However this challenge is tackled, I do believe we will see a marked improvement of performance and / or quality of life, depending on the individual player’s situation.
