    Should there be a list for add-on tracks so users can confirm yes/no as to whether they load currently with the new build?
    Tim noted something about the add-on track packaging affecting game loading.
    It'd just be nice to know what add-ons are working at this point before we 'brick' the new install. Thanks.

    Did you figure this out? Could this be the reason:

    AFAIK it was a repackaged mod called Lola fun.

    My settings are maxed out in-game (completely), and I use Level 4 AA through rFactor2 Config, and 2x SparseGrid on top of that. Framerate improvements weren't massive but they were noticable - around 10fps on Silverstone (going from 100 to 110fps when alone on track) and almost 30fps on Croft (going from 120 to 145fps alone on track). I use 120Hz monitor so these improvements are still very beneficial.

    I forgot to do a framerate check at the back of a large grid with the old build so I can't give a comparison on how good the fps improvements are with lots of AI cars.

    I still need to use the 2x SparseGrid setting otherwise the white jagged lines come back. That hasn't changed for me.

    Coding isn't directly related in any way to the number of words in the notes. We can word stuff them if it would stop you crying. :) Are you talking about track related issues? I'm not sure how a build would do anything for those anyway, being as they are content.

    See the first post. You have some mods which are still in packages, I assume.

    His issue is most likely not your issue. Your issue is likely the one mentioned in the first post.

    Clio PC hasn't gotten an update. I'd assume there is a mod still in there.

    Yes, as per the first post. The reason is so that they can be listed when not installed. How are you expecting them to be parsed into a list for you to install them, without reading them?

    It will do. DX11 is more for optimization and performance than it is visuals.

    I got your email where you blamed the build for not being able to activate, and I reset your activations for you. This is unrelated to the build. If it isn't starting, then you need to do as the first post indicates with problem mods.

    Advice from others has been to undo what you did trying to fine tune performance earlier (in CCC and nVCP)

    Well, we're here and could answer your email now. I'm not sure why you need to be pissed... If you know you have used 5, ask for them to be reset now. There shouldn't be a need for anger for something that hasn't caused you any issue yet, and doesn't need to.

    Suspension geometry, moveable parts (doors, etc). I don't know enough to say more yet.

    I bugged the car cam guy about that recently, just for you. :)

    Now environment reflections looks exactly in low than in "high" but less fps in "high"

    ENVIRONMENT REFLECTIONS HIGH 107 FPS
    [​IMG]

    ENVIRONMENT REFLECTIONS LOW 135 FPS
    [​IMG]

    Big performance improvement. Virtual Mirrors not affect fps. Road reflection does not affect fps

    Did a pure fresh install and game force closes when hitting "RACE" or "JOIN" from the menue. Already Deleted the Searspoint from my Packages folder. Any idea where the probleme could be??

    Guys can someone please tell me what I must do to get the optimum grip ratio on track and what comes close to the real-world conditions ? Is there any guideline for real road usage. It's for tire, grip and car dynamic tests purpose. I wan't rate something based on wrong usage of the simulator but if i should rate standard start setting of the sim with green track ( what ever this is, the sim shouldn't start with that condition as standard ) and cold tires straight forward, i would say, something is off. :)
