Title: any way to upgrade/be able to use more threads when building world
Post by: WantaFanta on October 18, 2014, 02:35:29 pm
ok so i certainly cant afford to get the professional version of world machine and i don't have any need for it.. but i do like the idea of faster world build times... im working on an AMD 8 core and right now world machine isn't using more than 15-20% cpu utilization and it can take a Long time for my worlds to build... most of this time is spent on (usually) an erosion node thats got geological time enhancement enabled. so , im just not sure what to do in this situation, since like i said i just dont need the pro version .

In that case you DO need the professional version, as its the version that 'supports' more than two threads.


Sorry :/

Would it be possible to up the normal version thread limit to something like 8. Or possibly make a non-profit hobby license with lifted thread limitations?

I hate having to use old hardware just to get better build times because my new CPU can only utilize 8% of its power. Using artificial speed limitations to set licenses apart also seems very "old-school" to me...
