    I think he may have discovered some un-authorized home improvements and we should contact the local building inspector immediately!

    You need a GPU with a lot more VRAM or you have to reduce the texture resolution. Buying one with only 3GB was a big mistake.

    So what to do when Nordschleife is released? Is that your solution? All people will need to upgrade to a 2080Ti?

    3,5GB on mine. No problem running PX1, LMP2, GTE and GT3(for the Aston) with 50 Cars.

    Make sure the game has updated! Otherwise it crashes.

    I exited and went back into the sim several times and the loads were roughly the same ... my card is an 8GB 1080 GTX so no slouch ...

    Reduce the texture resolution and other details,Graphic options are there to be used. It would be stupid to limit the optics for all users just because some are too proud to set optoins to low.
    So yes thats my solution to reduce settings if you run out of VRAM

    Completely agree the brake markers need to be more visible watching on TV they are far more clearly visible.

    Excellent work, restored my confidence with laser scanned asphalt tracks.

    Why you were not confident about them before ?

    I saw nothing special on the track, honestly, and i won't be tweaking down my settings each time i need to play LeMans, the performance at night with rain for sure is awful, will wait for more updates on the track...

    Well done keeping this track a secret, a very nice track & surprise. Thank you!
    With the Endurance pack update do we now have interior shaders? Seems lighter in cockpit view.

    Not sure if it is liveracers or the Endurance pack but GTE Porsche times show as GT3 class. I was using a skinned car but checked the rcd file which says GTE.

    Very pleased with this track dlc Great Job looking forward to the Nords

    Your problems are not due to VRAM. All games will fallback to using system RAM if VRAM is full, this is why system RAM exists. Even if system RAM gets filled there are swap files etc. that OS can use. The only issue a filled VRAM will cause is performance, never hard crashes.

    I suspect crashing is either due to something broken in the specific configuration of the game or OS, like using 32-bit mode for instance. Either way, it's unlikely the track.

    I have a 4 GB GPU and I measured the VRAM usage as following on empty track (Windows itself consumes ~200-300 MB, included in these numbers):

    Full texture details: 3800 MB
    High texture details: 2700 MB
    Medium texture details: 2100 MB
    Low texture details: 2000 MB

    Each AI consumes ~50 MB of VRAM, so a 4 GB GPU is enough to run 26 cars on high settings and 40 cars on medium settings.

    I can't get this track to show up in the game!? I just bought it and it downloads and installs but it doesn't show up in the track list.
    I looked in the mod manager and noticed there are two Le Mans 2018 tracks installed, version 1.00 and 1.01. Why?

    Also tried to unsubscribe to it again but it just re-installs automatically when I start the game. I remember having similar problems with the last track I bought too (it didn't show in the game at first) but I can't remember how I solved it o_O
