I experience blocking performance issues, especially when the weather effects are active:

The CPU usage suddenly jumps to 100% and the game freezes, more or less.

Over all game play also lags, but not that badly/

I tried to set it to Win 8 compatibility mode, tinkered with the power plan and used the Win Game Mode.

This is not a gaming laptop for sure, but given that the the game is not graphic intense at all, this is odd.

Any ideas how to avoid this?

Win 10
Intel HD 4000 <- that's the problem, probably ...
DirectX 12
