Q&A: What about having covered Conveyors to help performance?
This question was possibly duplicated with a more recent answer: February 16th, 2021 Livestream Q&A: Does obscuring belts actually help with performance? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDJ5hvAkrWw
what about having covered conveyors to help performance uh that uh yeah but i don't i don't that's something we've tried we've tried that i don't remember what i don't know what the outcome of that was honestly yeah it's not gonna improve network because you still need to sync that yeah uh it might improve rendering but right now i think the cpu is is a bigger blocker for most people especially the bigger factory ones
so there's not an easy answer to any any of that actually we should just have we should just have a we should just not render like have this shitty like cheat option where people just click on it and then hide all ore for the people who have like a bit huge thing and they don't want to don't care about seeing that or yeah it's it's okay so i think that the tldr is that it's not impossible that will happen but we don't know right now but we have tested it um
