I must have missed something here.

"Smoother"/more natural - Hex does look more natural, but smooth!? Every surface looks like f#$@ing gravel chunks. Come on, let's be real here.

"Fewer voxels" - Pretty sure the old solid mesh could have accomplished that with more loosely packed or larger triangles/squares. There's more surfaces overall exposed that need rendering with Hex packing, because it's not one connected surface.

The old method must have had a terribly complex/inefficient geometry issue.
Someone please explain to me why the old method seemed to work, but why staring straight down at the new method eats 15fps?


Edit: Perhaps it's just the new engine being buggy?
Either way, low fps when underground makes me sad. ;(

Forever vigilent.
