4. Performance notes on game options

Several of the options in the Options menu may increase game

performance at the cost of game visuals.

These options include:

(Options/Preferences)

- Animal ratio: Setting this to LOW will decrease the number of

animals displayed on the screen at once. Setting this to HIGH will

increase the number of animals displayed on the screen. The game

will likely have an increased performance with fewer animals

displayed on the screen.

- Crop plant density: Setting this to LOW will decrease the number

of plants displayed on the screen at once. Setting this to HIGH

will increase the number of crops displayed on the screen. The

game will likely have an increased performance with fewer crops

displayed on the screen.
