THAT is a LOT better! Even with DynamicLights on I only get occasional FPS
drops. Usually directly after entering a new area. Sometimes, when there's a
lot to draw, that moves, you can get the drops again as well. I played for
about an hour (with DynamicLights=true), and it didn't get worse with time.
It's just dependent on whether there is lots of new stuff to draw or there are
lots of moving parts with lighting eg. from fires or effects.

TL;DR: Almost there. There are still drops, but not as bad as before and almost
no complete "1 second freezes" any longer.
