Simulation Speed Benchmark

This mod shows, in the top left corner of the screen, the ammount of time the game takes to process one simulation frame in miliseconds.

Simulation frames per seconds
One week takes 4096 frames. One Day and Night cycle takes 65536 frames.
At normal speed the game does at most 60 frames per second.
At 2x speed the game does at most 120 frames per second.
At 4x speed the game does at most 240 frames per second.

This is only useful to benchmark the CPU

@stmSantana Thank you. It's unlikely to be broken, it's most likely incompatibilities between mods that are very hard to debug. Also, this mod gives you the time the game takes to process one simulation frame, it doesn't have anything to do with the graphics frame rate. It seems to me that Monitor It! doesn't give that value so it's not like you can replace this mod with Monitor It!.

This is no error for me.
Maybe this conflicts with other mods? It shouldn't be called "broken".

And Monitor it mod only displays the frame rate and memory usage, That is not for benchmarking.

Mod causes random "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" errors sporadically. Otherwise, works really well and I like it.

This seems to cause some glitch for me. Occasionally the money disappears from the statusbar, and I get random errors popping up more and more frequently until I have to save and quit. Only happened when I had this mod enabled.

This tool is great! I can know when some citizen are getting stucked somewhere I can see that the number is boosting up suddenly! Thanks a lot!

@Aminushki Lower is better
Aminushki May 13, 2018 @ 8:25am 
lower is better? or is it the other way around?

Is there a way to output this to a file to compare the average? With the mod Rush Hour, the simulation speed at night is very different from 7am.

Intel i7 8700k@4,9 was able to reach around 13 ms simulation frame time speed on downloaded saved game of Rockfield-655k citizens from steam workshop. So faster 6 cores are better in this game than slower 8 cores.
