I'm having quite terrible lag while hosting a Multiplayer world, doesn't matter the player count I'm just always lagging or getting lags spikes while building, running around, harvesting, placing conveyors, etc.

Extra Info: 

Video Settings

Base Pictures:

PC Specs:
CPU: AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core


OS: 64 Bit Windows 10

Graphics Card: Geforce GTX 1050Ti Overclocked

Any help would be lovely, Thank you.

also I have a windows key im too lazy to activate it.

the weak single core performance of amd fx probably doesnt make matters better. I'd strongly consider upgrading :)

Try setting in Options -> Gameplay:
- Send Gameplay Data OFF

- Network Quality ULTRA

This should greatly help

its weird because i had those settings on even before but after this recent update the lag started, some bugs appeared as well, in my case its not too annoying really

Would still be not a bad idea to try it out ;)

Just a guess, but I would also drop the view distance from Ultra. I have a great GPU so Ultra graphics works great. However, I speculate that a lower render distance means that the network can prioritise the positions of objects closer to my location. At the end of the day its the unreal engine and there are probably some network performance optimisations in terms of "actor replication" at play. I have also read some discussion about building lots of walls around your factory areas so the system can ignore a lot of objects. No idea if it works.
