    Getting some stuttering too, especially on town-like areas.

    I think the main cause of this is the new way the game loads chunks in 1.8. That may have something to do with the huge FPS drop when moving around.

    Other than that, i don't have any proper advice on how to solve or mitigate the problem.

    More progress on New Adobe my town:

    Farming district. I decided to build the wheat farm now instead of building it at stage 4 (the original farm now grows carrots)


    Started working on the mining district. Here's a warehouse (community structure)


    Interior. Most of the storage chests are hidden from this view.


    Mining district housing and a quarry, with walkways built for accessing the houses. I also built the fourth and fifth homes early.


    Another view and a potato farm.
    (Town currently unnamed: needs better name)

    Even more progress:

    General view


    Sentries


    Front façade of the town hall


    The interior (to be furnished)


    Meeting room upstairs


    Basement. Left door leads to the underground emergency tunnels, and right one to the treasury.


    Stage 2 item requirements.


    And finally, the granary, (second community structure)

    By the way, i've finally given a name for the town:

    I think that wraps up stage 2. Onto stage 3! :)

    More progress on the town:

    I started construction of the town hall:
    I'm incorporating some ideas from VaalDeth's building style (namely the base of the pillars) into the structure, as well as my own style. The workbench in the center is definitely temporary.
    I'm seriously thinking of using other materials for future farming district builds. I'm starving for clay.

    Meanwhile, on the farm...

    Wheat, carrots, potatoes...Wait, what's that?


    Welcome to the underground square. Every building of the district (except the animal pen) is connected to the place via tunnels. This square is supposed to be used in case the town gets besieged by enemies.
    Still unsure about what name should i give to my town -_-

    Well, i got tired of my old settlement and decided to start anew. Here's some pictures:


    A view of the place. At the center there's the 3 houses (they look like one building, but they actually are separate homes), a temporary tree farm and the wheat farm that needs to be fenced off. I will replace the dirt walls with hardened clay as soon as i hit stage 2.


    Another view of the settlement. I decided to go with a single farm here instead of each house having their own separate farms.


    Interior of the first house. Not much too see here.


    Basement of the first house.


    Basement of the second house. I couldn't find enough sheep to build more beds (the worldgen decided to spawn only pigs and chickens as i explored), so here's a (temporary) alternative. It may not be as comfortable, but at least it's better than sleeping on the ground.
    I almost finished stage 1. I still need to fulfill the item requirements and I should be good to advance to the next stage ;) .
