Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

That is not an easy thing to do. Petit Gutrot exists entirely because there's no real way to "optimize" the map without cutting a significant chunk out of it or redesigning the entire thing from the top.

It's just not possible to make a wide-spread, open level without some kind of compromise.

The real root of the problem is that everything going on here is built on top of almost 30-year-old code and rendering concepts. The kinds of "optimizations" you'd need in order to make it run like a modern game would require a completely different engine with a totally different rendering pipeline - and we can't just do that either because we have 30 years worth of custom levels and mods that still need to be supported.

Then my best solution is just to ignore it, and be happy with other maps. That would be enough to satisfy people with incoming addons/custom maps; so I wont complain more. Still I think turning off that 3d cloud and smoke from fire effect could really help on some part. I remember in reelism 1; there are options to turn off things such as dynamic lights; smoke... Perhaps; the same fortune will later come upon this.
I understand that 2 Gutrot maps are very demanding but iconic to this mod series; why not separate them as an legacy/addon instead.
