Yeah, I spent some time googling after work and it seems optimised blocks are much better than standard ones.
We avoided them since we used older STep7 projects as references, we migrated them and we copied useful parts, and lot of things use pointers which don't work with such blocks.
Now I think solution is to switch to optimised blocks and activate memory reserve where possible and get rid of pointers as much as possible in our library functions.
We anyways had a lot of spare tags in standard DBs, now we can kick those out and activate memory reserve or leave them inside and use smaller memory reserve.
I presume we'll have maybe enough time to use optimised blocks in most critical parts (most likely to be changed, which are usually HMI blocks).

Thanks all for help!
