It seems poor performance in the sim is coming from some sort of issue with CPU’s not being used as intended, the issue has been largely discused in the reddit topics I attach, but I will try to explain it fast.
My PC has the following specs:
32Gb DDR4 Ram
RTX 2070SUPER (I also made the tests with my RTX2080SUPER just to be sure)
Turns out that when I activated the debug mode I got a “Limited by main thread” message. I previously thought that the bottleneck was on my GPU but it seems it is the processor the one being underused
I tried going to an area far away from any airport and the results were the same. It did not matter what graphic settings I use, I can max everything out or put everything in low-end and I will get the same fps ± 5.
However, airports are a decissive issue, I get from 10-25 fps in Madrid Barajas, and the same goes for most big airports. I even got 9fps at some points in Frankfurt at night.
In a nutshell, even with a beast of a PC the game won’t go higher than 20 fps in certain areas, this has to be solved by allowing the game to better use CPU’s, otherwise we are going to be stuck like this forever, since it does not matter wether you buy a 3080 or have a 970, you will more or less get the same performance.
