Hello. First, thank you for taking the time to read this.
I am having difficulty with an activity. I did not download it, I created it from scratch. The route is the Pacific Surfliner Route from Facing Point Media. I am using strictly content that came with the route, nothing else. (There is one custom consist I made but it uses only what came on the disk.) It starts in San Diego and the player drives to LA, starting at 6:04 A.M. There is a Coaster service that departs next to the player service. You follow it (on another track, racing it basically) and then pass it at Old Town. Approximately 50 seconds in, the game starts to skip. All controls work as they are supposed to for 7 seconds exactly. Then it freezes, and my computer crashes. Happens every time at the same spot. Is it possible to have TOO much AI traffic in a session, as there are probably two dozen services (6 of them are detectors) if not more that start when the session does. My graphics card is not very good, so I am also curious if the lighting (based on time of day) causes this. I have created activities on this route before, using default and downloaded content that worked fine. I am at a loss with how to proceed. I don't want to have to start over but if this is an unheard-of problem I guess I will.
