Bruma Needing Gates

Heyo, ive been playing BSB on my Xbox One S ever since it was ported over. I Absolutely LOVE the mod and cant wait for further creation of Cyrodiil. ONE THING, when within the area of about a mile from bruma and inside bruma, if i look in the direction of the city my fps goes from 50 to less than 10. Why? BECAUSE, no gate. I fully understand that people hate the idea of gates and waiting for loading screens, and that it takes away from the whole immersion aspect of the game, but honestly, I'm simply asking for you to create 2 versions of the mod, one like how it is now, and one where the city is its on Game Room, but still keeping the aspect of seeing foliage and building from outside the city. This would really help me and some of the other people who are having trouble with the lag on the Xbox version. This would also need to be a thing with any further city mods coming out for BSB. This might just be a lot to ask of you guys and the whole team, but if it were made, I and many many many other Xbox players of BSB would really be thankful. Thanks!

Except they tested it and it had almost zero effect on performance.

 

The team has gone on record to say this numerous times.

This is true, leaving the cities open was a pretty controversial idea in BS and the issue was heavily debated even before deciding to take the massive effort of successfully closing off a city just to test it out to see if it significantly increased performance. 

The result was that it increased performance only very slightly

(as the excessive amount of new models and some scripting was all taking place inside the city walls already, not outside them, and those are what drop the FPS in the first place - not to mention the game still has to render all the same LOD models outside the walls that would be rendered whether or not the city is open or closed, since you can see above the walls, and since there's only a stables and a small refugee slum outside with not much going on at either, not much else besides the LOD takes up rendering or computing power)

 So, while this slight performance increase would be appropriate for say a whole province, where the performance of the game would increase by the amount of all the cities that get closed off (and even still not very much), it didn't justify closing off the city and causing more unnecessary quest related problems as well as the added un-immersion of closing off the city at all.

Really the only way to greatly increase performance to match vanilla quality IMO would be to meticulously comb through and optimize each mesh - from armors to buildings, texture sizes, scripts, quests, even down to every vertex in the navmeshing of the entire area, closing off the city, deleting excess items etc - all of it together - and only then would all those small performance increases add up to anything substantial. And as we are, we just don't have the manpower or time for such an effort - it would need a dedicated and experienced QA team to accomplish, something we could never have since every new addition we get is immediately directed to finishing our overall goal of completing the province of Cyrodiil and our actual questlines. 

I hope you are still able to enjoy the mod regardless of its unfortunate limitations.

It looks good anyway with or without the gates so what difference does it make having them TheBugFixIngErThing

I've been playing on Xbox and have experienced no issues, i have more dips and crashes in mainland Skyrim with Open Cities than in BS.

i under stand the point that you guys are trying to make but the team might have some nice $500-$1000 pcs, but i have the most high end xbox one s with only 2 other games installed, and im still getting a huge drop from 50pps to less than 10. if it is some error that i made installing the mods or any other mods that might interfere or just a general thing or mod that will help me get better fps, please comment back. and i know that it may only be a slight improvement for their games but i am telling you, if you do make one with Bruma enclosed, i swear that it wont be a 40 fps drop, probably around a 15fps drop. so please, help me out guys. Thanks!
