Does anyone have any clue how to fix these spikes? Kinda ruins the whole gaming experience.. :/

Comp specs:

W7 64-bit

Inter Core2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50GHz


ATI Radeon HD 4800


Notice how the spikes, in the lower left corner of the pictures, differs between night- and daytime.

Picture taken at daytime - in-game:

Anyone got any similiar problems and knows how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, I think it's pretty common. There are quite a few problems with the performance in that game that need to be fixed. I believe it's some sort of chunk-loading error that started in Beta version 1.6.5.

It happens to me too (i7 930, HD 5870, 6GB of RAM). It doesn't happen after the chunks have already been generated though.
