    I am having an interestingly peculiar issue with my rFactor 1. You see, I just downloaded some recent model F1 mods (Patrick34's 2015 and WCP's 2016 mod) and I have one big problem: every time I race with the AI, I just get an absolutely horrendous FPS performance all of a sudden. And I'm only racing with 11 AI.

    The thing is, when I loaded other mods (i.e older released mods, pre-2012 year mods) it works perfectly fine, even with a full grid.

    Can anyone help my issue? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Could this be track related?
    I get vastly different frame rates at various tracks.
    Try the mod on an ISI track.

    For sure. High detailed tracks have lower fps. Besides that I've noticed that some tracks updated for RFE plugin also have lower fps.

    On the Steam version running Win10 I need to go and manually set my processor affinity to all 4 cores otherwise rFactor runs like crap. It's weird because I never had to do that before, but you might want to try that.
