Biggest trick is probably upgrading the ram on your system (annoyingly), or allocating more (but still leaving about 2GB for the OS and other apps). How much do you have? People have been struggling with PO3 in-game with 6GB allocated, which is the max I would really recommend if you had a total of 8GB. Most staff have needed to allocate 8-10GB to run it smoothly.

Other tricks include closing every other application when trying to load in to the server, reducing all the graphical settings (and putting render distance down to min) when trying to join (you can put them back up afterwards). In addition, as the disconnects are usually caused by your system not managing to get all the necessary info for a server connection (and PO3 is a big pack, so a lot of info) before the timeout limit, restarting your router can sometimes help.

Sadly, the fact is that some players will struggle due to how huge a pack it is. I hope this helps you though.
