I played for several (in game) days. Day cycle works flawlesly, and also didn't notice any fps changes during night and day.
When saving, it drops fps but its like for 3 seconds and on every 300seconds, so no big deal...
Also, would it be possible to make something between dynamic sky and fog, like in minecraft, to be able to see dynamic sky when we look up, but there would be also fog near the ground where our line of sight ends so that we don't see parts of land that are not loaded far away, if you know what i mean.
And thank for explaining this optimisation thing, alot of stuff is now clearer to me!
