low FPS but good computer?
i have a fairly new computer that surpasses the minimum specs of this game greatly...when i first got it the game ran fine but now it plays at very low fps even on minimal settings.

The server you play on can change your FPS greatly as some do not have optimised settings yet. Also maps Coast and Gate are still in/only just out of Beta and tend to lag at the moment. Try the Redstone server as it is well maintained by Stickz

It is well known that on a full 32 player server with lots of structures placed and a heavy battle going on it lags pretty much. You shouldn't have lags on Skirmish maps and half populated servers

What kind of vid card do you have? Because you can change your setting for it in ND. It will increase your fps greatly.

Go to OPTIONS, then VIDEO, the ADVANCED, wait for vertical sync (disable it)

Make sure all your setting are set HIGH

Your can also run in a Borderless Window on the VIDEO tab

There is other stuff you can do as well but you need a good vid card.

the minimal game specs are what you need to run all your settings on low. unless you got a stronger customized video card, you will likely need to set your model/texture and shader detail to low. (in the video settings menu)

the server sadly can't control how fast the video appears on you screen. this is to the player to set their video settings correctly according to how strong their computer is.

try setting your model/texture and shader detail to low. (in the video settings menu) if your fps still isn't above 40 afterwards set everything in that menu to the lowest possible value. (keep vertical sync and multi-core rendering on)

those are settings i recommanded to you becuase your video card is better than what 95% of people have access to. this will actually make their problem even worse if they do that.

you also left out the frame rate limit command so your don't degrade the life of your video card (which should always be used when turning off vertical sync)

First of all thank you but everything on minnimum and my FPS peaks just under 30 (goes down to 12 if there are lots of people and im in combat). I got good specks and it used to run fine, de fragged, plenty of RAM, all that stuff, i just dont understand :/
