    Is there a graphics setting to lower tree detail?

    The reason I ask this is, while the game runs smoothly on my PC most of the time with reasonable settings at 1920x1080 (I'm using a GTX 1050Ti), the frame rate will drop significantly when going from Turn 5 to Turn 6 at Watkins Glen (carousel into the boot), and likewise, but not as bad, going through the backside of Road America. The connecting link between both of these is the sheer amount of foliage! I've tried lowering trackside objects, etc., but I still get the same issue, and it's not much of a boost to the rest of the game. Any suggestions?

    To answer your question no I don’t believe it’s possible as the settings are wrapped up in various files.

    It's the track quality setting, the tree density changes from medium to high, ultra is just more stuff along the side and furthest viewing distance.

    The -vrnomirror option causes on my System that there is no Antialiasing applied.
