Major frame drop near fire
recently this game has sadly become unplayable for me, it seems when standing near fire i get heavily frame rate drops, when standing still no issues but if i grab something off a table the game crashes to desktop. my specs are fine for this game, and my drivers are up to date. ive tried with no mods, ive tried with unofficial patch, please any assistance would greatly appreciated.

Maybe it's because of shadows?
If yes, then you need to lower your graphical settings.

Lights come in 2 versions; they either create shadows or don't.
However, many campfires/fireplaes use lights that create shadows, thus can cause performance issues if your graphical settings don't match your hardware capabilities.

Maybe it's script spam; try starting a new game and see if that resolves the issue.

You can do something like start up SKyrim, then at the main menu bring up the console and type in "coc Riverwood" [without quotes]; and that will create a generic character and take you immediately to Riverwood to test out the game.
