Here is my question: When will you sincerely look into the optimization of the game? I know this has probably been asked a lot and a lot is an understatement but I can't take it anymore.
As others have noted, optimisation isn't a priority while the game is still in Alpha mode, because the additional content that gets added in would then force the optimisation process to start over again.
Optimisation (and bug fixing) will become the prime focus of the Devs when the game moves into Beta phase (I'd suspect somewhere around 1+ year(s) from now). That said, optimisation isn't totally ignored either even in Alpha and there are some current issues which TFP is looking into for fixing for A21.
You could also look at Vintorez' guide, and others if you like, about how to configure the settings to perform your own personal optimisation of how the game runs.
