What is this Mod?
This mod dramatically improves FPS in mining bases by significantly reducing the geometric detail of Silos and Pipes!

There are two versions
Exo's Industrial FPS Booster and Exo's Extreme Industrial FPS Booster

Exo's Industrial FPS Booster Leaves the main Silo model installed, for those who don't want to go completely overboard with the Extreme version.

Exo's Extreme Industrial FPS Booster replaces the Silo model with a super-basic cylinder as seen in the cover photo for this mod page.

BOTH versions consolidate the silo's four pipe-attachment hubs into a single centered one (which can attach to any number of pipes anyway)

BOTH versions remove all of the extra geometry from pipes leaving only the twin black tubes, and none of the overly-detailed clamps.

Philosophy
It seems like HG never predicts that their player base might do *a lot* of anything. It's.... odd.
To be fair, the original appearance is FAR better-looking, but the FPS cost can be too much to bear!

Known Side-Effects
None.

About Available Versions
I keep all of my uploaded files marked (on the Files page) with their packing date and version of the MBINCompiler I used to pack it. Any older mod that is no longer compatible with the current version of No Man's Sky will be demoted to the "Old Files" subsection, but will remain available for download. If I have missed one, please tell me.

This means that any mod files which are not hidden or demoted to the "Old Files" area can be expected to work.


MBINCompiler versions exactly match the version of No Man's Sky that was current when the MBINCompiler was made. In other words, MBINCompiler version = NMS version. This fact can be used to figure out which Legacy mods work with which Legacy versions of No Man's Sky.

Big thanks to any and all of you lovely people who offer donations! It is greatly appreciated, and will help me buy lunch while I'm busy being a broke college student! :D


And, of course, all of the other modders who make mods too! It is very common that I inspect the work of other modders to learn how things are done. RangerDulannRedmasWoodyMontanajasondudeGumskMjjstralmoddinaccount, Devilin Pixy, Lo2k, saa044, and others have all helped me learn how to mod effectively! Without the other people mentioned here and their mods and applications, I would not be able to make any mods at all!
