I was reading that this game uses the unity engine, which I also use. I was wondering if you guys at Red Thread were using Light Probes and Lightmapping as the fps drops seem to be much better when I turn the shadows off. If you dont use Light Probes it renders the shadows in real time which eats your gpu usage.

We use light probes and light/shadow maps in all scenes. Some lights are also real time, of course, but we've optimised this a great deal to avoid further frame-rate drops.
