I decided to see what would happen in my FPS super toy with the outside world.

and found a small FPS and a small closed world ..

I am delicious two examples, and the result does not please me.

I will appreciate if you tell me what is the reason for this drop FPS.

One thing that sticks out, in your main loop in the DarkClouds example, this:

dc make cubemap 128,2,3,4,5,6,7

I'm sure that'll be a slow command, not something you'd want to run every single frame. I'd limit that, or I'd just generate it on object creation. If you don't have the same issue when disabling that command, then that's your answer. Sorry I can't test it right now, at work - just had a look at the source code is all.

I am the one who knocks...

Yup, Dark Clouds can eat your system out with that, Try using STYX or similar if available in Matrix1Utils to run DC on another thread, I have not done a proper test, but with a basic interval setup I gained 10~ FPS, I might try a proper Interval setup sometime soon when I get round to documenting DC...

you're right

if you change the settings, the FPS rises considerably
