I know there is a lower texture patch and Lite 3D patch. Can you use them both though ?
I just wonder which has the most effect, so I could try the one with the most effect first and then maybe I won't need to use both.
I only have 6GB of memory so I'm not sure If the 4GB patch would be of much help.

Yes, I recommend the 4GB patch before you try anything else.
Using the 4GB patch is the very first step.
Then I would make a backup of your spa67 folder (just copy the folder and rename it for example to "spa67 - original". Then you can easily go back to the original version (by deleting spa67, make a copy of "spa67 - original" and rename it to spa67), if something should go wrong with the packs. This way you can esily test the FPS effect of the packs and go back to the orginal as a base to start again.
Yes, you can use both packs.
I would first use the Low Resolution Texture Pack (Smaller textures for older PCs.).
If that does not help I would also use on top the LITE 3D Pack (Fewer objects and shorter draw distances, for older PCs.).
Can you gives us your system specifications?

A quick option, for a file or folder, is to right click on it and select "add to zip"; this creates a zip file with the same name as the file or folder right there. Edit to your heart's content, if things do not work out just right click on the zip and select "extract here" and you are back where you started. (In the case of a track, delete the folder you've been editing or any new loose files will remain in the reinstated folder; the zip is safe at the bottom of the list in "tracks".) In GPL I keep the default cars and tracks this way, and all ini/cfg files; even in everyday work I "right click>add to zip" any audio or video files before editing.

You should be able to run Spa67 original version with constant 36 FPS.
Are you using OpenGL v2? You can set it in GEM+.
Have you tried these high-resolution graphics settings?
See 2.4. GEM+ and GPL Settings

Try harder settings. Sounds strange, but give it a try.
Which mod are you trying? Or original 67 Papyrus cars?

I have 1050_ti
Max out the graphic setting. Highest quality and best performance in the Nvidia UI
8 x AA is max for me
In game move the detail slider to 99% with everything on.

solid 60Fps at Spa, the screenshot freezes the fps for a second...
Some settings - NVidia allways sets performance back to auto!

How are you getting 60fps, I thought the game ran at 36 and If higher AI cars were supposed to have issues ?
Other thing I noticed was that there was a huge slowdown on the straightaway near the pits.
Also the AI cars seem to go very slowly all around the track for some reason.

BTW, vsync will drop to 30fps exactly if 60fps cannot be maintained, so any other frame rate means vsync is not the issue.

It's been so long since I tried the Papy cars at Spa67. I usually drive that track in the HistoricV2 mod and the AI aren't slow.

Why don't you try the Historical V2 mod for the 67 F1 cars? The AI are better behaved and the cars are easier to drive. I do drive the Papy 67 F1 cars most of the time but I also stick with the 11 original tracks too.
