I've basically done as was suggested here a while ago and disabled vsync. Much more playable. I can run at "extremely high" graphics as long as vsync is off, both in ATS and ETS2. Still hoping for a true fix or an announcement that work is underway to move away from OpenGL for Mac. Although I'm seriously considering a move away from Mac myself, but that's for a different thread on a different forum. :D

Well. ATS seems better optimized than ETS2 so I have now better performance in ATS. But still, Washington is problematic, and the latest map DLC in ETS2 is a pain. So I have not bothered to get Utah as I guess it will be the same experience. If SCS would have any testers on Mac system I'm sure these problems would have been noticed. As SCS sells till game for Mac, we should get the same service as Windows users. We should not have to move to a different platform.

Where do you turn off Vsync? Am I just missing it in the settings?

I have been playing the game after the most recent update and bug fixes... and I don't know if you guys (the dev crew) fixed stuff or not, but ATS is working smoothly for me. Almost full FPS again (enough that it's smooth)! I haven't tried ETS2 yet but I hope it's the same. The only difference it the game takes longer to load for me, but once it's loaded it works great!

Thank you!

How is everyone else's game running now?

My game is still running terribly and is basically unplayable. Lots of lag and very low FPS. I haven't been able to play in a long time now. Very disappointing. :(

Need to add my voice. I play ATS and ETS2 on Mac and it's lagging a lot. I already go down with graphic settings. But especially with lots of traffic, at night (with lights) it's hard. So I sometimes play on Geforce Now, but it doesn't load all my DLCs. :-(

I have set g_traffic to "0.5" that helps a little bit. And AA disabled also helps. But yes, some areas still suffers from 4-8 FPS which is not acceptable.
