    I'm not sure if this is a thing in every map, but in the map Jurassic after a certain amount of time a message will appear in the chat saying: "Something strange is happening...". When this message appears the map seems to change a bit as some of the dinosaurs drop lava and tnt, there are also a ton of blocks that spread everywhere leaving behind a sourceblock of lava or a fire. When this happens it causes extreme FPS lag and it drops a lot of frames, I can get over this, but there's quite some people who just can't really play the game anymore as there FPS drops too much. Of course this feature looks quite cool, but it's extremely unnecessary and should be removed in my opinion, as it makes people drop a ton of frames..

    That is an event called 'Meteor shower', and since it makes me crash pretty much every single time, I agree that it should be removed.

    I have not experienced this lag shower, but if it makes a bunch of people lag they should remove it.

    I think that the falling fire blocks are causing the most fps lag. Instead of removing the whole feature they could change it so the fire blocks don't fall anymore but just spawn on the ground.
    But if that doesn't help, they definitely should remove it.

    I don't think I've seen anyone die because of this to be honest, of course it looks quite cool, but it's just annoying and makes everyone drop a lot of frames.

    I agree, the Fire falling from the sky is unnecessary and causes too much lag, but honestly the meteor is fine

    When we first tested it, the meteors falling down were fine. Since 2 days ago, something happened where lots of fire starting falling all over the place randomly, and extreme lag ensued. This is not intended and normally, the Meteor Shower event works fine.
    We are working on fixing this, if anyone has more details about the bug, let us know. Thanks!

    Well, I have 5-10 fps when I play SG
    I have never played Jurasic, probably I would have 0-1 fps in that moment.
    Finally people knows what is having low fps...

    I have also experienced this on the same map but if it wasn't intended then I do hope it gets fixed when they are free to do so.
    I noticed the closer you head to spawn where "something strange is happening" x2 (sometimes 2 or 3 of this messages come out in a very short period of time) you tend to freeze, or well I tend to.. and my teammate starts lagging, some disconnected some can bear it.
    Well me being further from where the server is hosted from, I can't help having bad ping so it's kind of sad because it's a really awesome update and I would love to play on my best without dropping to 1 frame.

    I hope you guys find the core of the issue ^-^ I'm okay with waiting so take your time since there are lots of things the dev/staff are working on.

    I added this to the bug tracker about a week ago, seems to have been fixed. Haven't had any FPS issues since. If anyone's still having FPS issues, please contact me.

    Thanks Taco! I played 1-2 games and it seemed fine so far, hopefully it would stay that way.
