Low Demand Mode is an optimized mode that Virtual Town can use to make the game run more smoothly and reliably on devices that may not be able to run the game well. It was added to the game in version 0.5.1 and later. It is designed primarily for devices with low-end specs or older devices that otherwise would not be able to run the game.
This mode is automatically set on devices with limited hardware capability, and the option to set Low Demand Mode will not appear in Settings. For all other devices, activating the Low Demand Mode setting will enable the optimized mode and improve performance of the game when it doesn't run well in normal mode.
