Heinous lag-spikes after visiting the Iron Forest chopper.
As the title says, I started getting lag spikes after I went to examine the chopper in the Iron Forest. I've had this lag-spike issue on this game before on a different instance of the game, about a year before this.

Prior to visiting the Iron Forest I never had any lag spikes and my FPS was just fine (60+ FPS)

The wierd thing here is that my system is fairly high-end...:
Intel 2600k @ 3,8 GHz
2x GTX 670s 4GB SLI
8GB RAM @ 166
ASUS P8P67-M PRO Motherboard

The setup I had the year before was a good bit weaker, so I thought that with the system I have now, I'd run the game just fine without any lag spikes...but alas, I was wrong...

When I had glitchy and even CTD issues, I switched from Dx 11 to Dx 10. I read on some forums that the game is not optimal using Dx 11 as it was designed before Dx 11's release. In any case, the change solved my problem.

I use(d) the DX9 Lighting by default, and I've tried both DX10 and DX11 with no change.

I started a new game yesterday with the Misery mod installed and running DX11 at the same time, no lag spikes yet, but then again, I havent visited the Iron Forest just yet.

Ill keep you updated.

Let me know as I just had some CTDs. I read somewhere that these tend to happen when new AI is introduced. I turned down my settings to low, and it seems to be OK, but I do get momentary lagging. The only mod I use is Atmosfear 3.
