Huge spikes in RAM usage

So I want to say around the Lobby 3 update I’ve noticed incredible spikes in my RAM usage when playing the game. To the point where my system just starts freezing up. It usually happens whenever I’m in others condos or when playing Virus.

I understand some condos are graphically intensive but I don’t understand the sudden spike from 2GBs of RAM usage to something like 4-5, even after everything’s loaded. With Virus I usually have a smooth time at the start; something around 1.5GB of RAM being used on average, but it almost spikes up to 4GBs of RAM usage during the later rounds. On round 9/10 my whole system starts freezing cuz of all the ram usage.

My specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.00GHz
RAM: 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 799MHz
Graphics: 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970

Would really appreciate any tips on how to get this RAM usage under control. Also yes, I have all my settings on low.

This is most likely because of the memory leak regarding workshop models. It’s really bad right now. Temporary solution is to disable workshop models on the “content” menu in settings.

Well shoot. Thought if I had high poly models off it wouldn’t be a problem. Thanks for the tip, I’ll give that a try.

Memory leaks progress in a fashion where no matter how small the memory usage you start with is, it’ll eventually get unbearable.

Is there any new info on a fix? This is starting to get really problematic.
Staying in a busy server for a couple hours can really mess with your computer.

After staying in the Casino for 8-ish hours I’ve had a Windows swap file with a file size of over 14 Gigabytes. I have 8 Gigabytes of RAM in my computer. Needless to say, it didn’t run so well after that. I had to manually clear the swap file to make my computer usable again because these issues persisted across reboots.

Please fix.
