When you add/install a ton of addons, will that harm the pc performance? I`v have read that some of the addons fx Scenary-Helsinki (freeware) eat a lot of FPS. Or is it the ammount of installed oddons that kills Pc-permance? THX.
It’s likely the add-on itself that could cause performance issues. It depends how optimized the addon is. Having a lot of well optimized add-ons should not kill performance. But having just a few “bad” or incompatible add-ons can cause performance and stability issues.
At current state just be careful with what addons you enable. Just because a new addon is out doesn’t mean you have to install it.
Microsoft has made it easy to add/remove addons with the community folder.
I personally remove all add-ons after every patch update and then I add one by one and test to make sure it is working ok. There have been add-ons that did not work after patch update so right now, with the new sim, everything is trial and error.
long lists of addons will increase the time before the game actually launches (it’s indexing all those folders).
Also I agree with the user above; every mod/addon can cause issues with each patch, and since the game is patched quite frequently, I keep it to a minimum myself.
We already have a whole world to explore, I personally don’t feel the need to add on a lot of custom scenery for a long while.
