Planet Zoo Performance Fix

This is a generally well-optimised PC game. However, if you are running the game near or below the minimum requirements you may want to improve your FPS. Here are some tips.

  • Disable 'hardware acceleration' in Discord to free up GPU bandwidth for Planet Coaster.
  • The game is very RAM intensive - shut any background applications that you don't need open before playing.
  • 'Shadows', 'Water Reflections' and 'Geometry Detail' are the most demanding graphical options in the game. Try turning these down first to see an FPS boost.
