Post Update Optimization Woes.

So I have hardware decent enough to run ARMA III at a comfortable 27-30 FPS on standard graphics settings but after the Sandstorm updates, I can no longer get a steady 25 with the game. The stutter is all but gone, which is good, but I really need a stable framerate. And the game looks BAD. The graphics are bland, they usually don't load properly and by the time they do I've moved out of the section of the map into another one and they look like crap there.

Before the update I could run the game on just above minimal settings, it wasn't exactly gorgeous, but it looked good enough. Now its just hideous, and the FPS is too low. The end result is that I've stopped playing altogether. I really hope the devs get this fixed soon.
