RAM taken increasing heavily in MeshModeler w/ freeze avec extruding

Post by Harest » 01 Nov 2019, 09:50

Hi,

I was in the MeshModeler trying some stuff, mainly to fix a border that doesn't align properly*. It was this item (don't worry it'll probably go as a 3x1 or 4x1 instead of 2x1 if i ever use it). After extruding a border i wanted to save but after i clicked on it (though it may have started before), ManiaPlanet was frozen (still responding but just frozen). I ctrl+alt+del to check the task manager and i saw the RAM increasing heavily, from 3Go to 6Go progressively. At some point it went down to 2.5/3Go but it quickly went up again and taking more and more RAM. I've only 8Go so when it reached 6Go i killed the process. CPU wise it only took 25% (so 1 core max).

*If anyone knows how to fix that stuff properly btw i'm interested (in pm or else; same for what are the optimal settings for a custom item in term of size, fly step, how to properly set the snapping stuff, etc. it's always a struggle to me. Though on this one it's an issue with the scaling i did (300%) i guess. But both blocks were scaled to 300% so it should still align properly :roll:.

Concerning help for the mesh modeller: The creator's place discord might be a good place to ask questions. Maybe I can help you with some of them.

Hello Harest,

I downloaded your item, modified something (moved one face), and saved it
The saving process was long due to all the faces it contains and cos calculating lightmaps on it is hard since lots of faces are not merged
Nevertheless, it took like 30s but saved without any prooblem.

Yep, i assumed this was a rare edge case but i wanted to report it anyway as it was kinda crazy to see. It never occured again atm.
