    Hi MrGit

    Thank you for this great event i really like it.
    One thing that makes it even better, almost legendary was the result table you shared with us two weeks ago.
    So i ask could you please share the result table from last wednesday (on SimSource)?

    i5-9600K with SilentiumPC Fortis 3 HE1425 cooler
    MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming Z 8GB @ 21560x1440px
    16 GM RAM @ 2133 MHz
    Stable 70-90 FPS.

    For me with a 8700k it was unplayable since the server reach about 60 peoples.
    Changing graphic settings don't change a thing. It was all about physic thread.
    But i'm confident things will go better soon ;)

    How many visible cars do you have? I have a i7 8086k oc to 5.1. Wonder how that would work for me

    I have an i7 8700 and it was totally unplayable, no matter how many visible opponents I selected. A near constant 99% usage message, even though I could see that my CPU was only at around 25-30% usage. @Minolin mentioned over the chat that it would be most likely due to the physics thread.

    Yep if you see the 99% warning popping up, it is definitively a problem with the physics thread. Just a gut feeling, but reducing overall load may help here a bit - but probably not fundamentally. I'm a bit irritated by the i7 8700 - I run the same and could do it.
    However for big grid races it's vital to reduce video settings, running 60+ cars is really out of proportion. Shadows and mirror related settings may give the best gains with comparably small visual impact; I was running them on HIGH and had 60 fps in last wednesday. But a must is a low "visible opponents" (had 15 and didn't even notice) - if your CPU/GPU even tries to do everything for all cars you won't get anywhere. Also make sure to reduce noise on the system; browsers with 20 tabs open running netflix and youtube in the background are not recommended ;)

    But if your fps are ok and the only problem is the 99% warning - please try again with the next update, should look even better then.

    Ok, thanks. Looking forward to the next update.

    Out of interest, I had only ACC and crew chief running, mirrors set to off and shadows set to high. I'll try to tinker with them again next time too. I had assumed that they would be affecting the GPU more than CPU. Visible opponents I lowered to 10 with seemingly no benefit.

    Because we've pretty much hit the *current* limit with a lot of people running into the "99" club when we hit 60+ drivers and with all eyes towards the 1.2 update and it's improvements, i think next week i'm going to set a hard cap of about 45-50 cars and run a 100% wet event instead!

    Letting you know now so you all can get tweaking/adjusting/overclocking in readiness. ^^

    for a wet event, you won't need to restrict car slots I guess :D
    did you think about a night race instead? I'm not even sure what is melting hardware more, but night may attract more people and may also look epic.
