    Yeah, I have hardly any too (correction: zero!). I'm not even sure what circumstances they get downloaded in :D

    Could be something else, not sure if it's just the current build(s) or something more specific that might be affecting you.

    I'll wait until they release the UI build before I start to look any further. It has definitely slowed recently and I use a SSD, so notice it now.

    I eliminated the shaders, Cbash, Result and replays, I also eliminated json players, restart rfactor and improved, the first time it takes to make new shaders when entering the circuit, but then it was much faster

    I think the issue being discussed here is the time it takes from pressing the 'join' button, or entering single player to the point where the vehicle selection/race button becomes available. This for me is what takes a long time now [even with an SSD] and clearing shaders/Cbash won't improve this.

    Mine takes < 5 seconds from clicking SP to tracks/cars available.. @Mark Fuller, you're on the latest build?

    I've been on hundred last builds and it always took more than a minute. SSD here.

    Just tried mine in VR (SteamVR closed when I click SP) ~7 seconds before tracks/cars available. Steam is on HDD and Steam Library on SSD.
    I do have a fairly new beefy computer (< 12 months old)...dunno whether that is a factor though.....sorry not much help :-(

    I tried moving all Locations and Vehicles (except the one I was using) to a back up folder so rFactor had to process fewer files but it was still slow (about a minute). The UI is a lot tidier though!

    (Moving them is almost instant rather than copying which would take quite a while.)

    For me it is 2 min 4 secs !
    Has to be taken into consideration that my workshop folder is on another non-SSD disk.
