No matter what I do, the game is often a stuttery mess. It stuttered bad on the un patched and patched versions, it stutters if I crank the graphics down to low on everything (though less) and it stutters with any version of Worse mod. The biggest issue is that it isn't consistent. Sometimes it will run great for 30 or so minutes before the stuttering comes, sometimes it happens right away. It's not like I have a poor rig or something
GTX 770 2gb
I7 4790k (stock 4.0ghz for now)
8gb of DDR3 1600
and the game is installed on an SSD
and I don't know if there is anything else I can do. I read somewhere that the main reason for the stuttering is that they way the engine reads the ram versus how it does on consoles, so not much I can do there except Ubisoft decides to come out with another patch.
I run the game in 1080p with textures set to high, AA set to either MSAA or TXAA 2x (depending on how stuttery the game is) and everything else on ultra (though I turn shadows down to high during night). I keep trying to tweak setting to make the game playable at times, but I just need to accept that this is a shitty port and move on.
