Reports suggest that Cities Skylines 2 is not performing as expected on PC. Initially, you will encounter challenges in achieving a consistent gaming experience, but I have found the Best Settings in Cities Skylines 2 for both graphics and gameplay to achieve consistent FPS.
Cities Skylines 2 Best SettingsThe developers, Colossal Order, increased the system requirements for the city-building sequel long before the launch of Cities Skylines 2. However, more recently, they acknowledged that they didn’t reach the performance goal they were aiming for on PC. They’ve assured players of forthcoming patches to enhance Cities Skylines 2 performance.
While waiting for the update, below are the Best Settings you could apply to get the best performance in Cities Skylines 2:

Wait For Virtual Texuturing To ProcessThis technology optimizes the usage of video memory for textures. Please be patient while these textures are being processed. While the Cities Skylines 2 is in the process of updating these textures, you might notice that the buildings appear dark or display some other graphical glitches.
The duration it takes for your computer to apply the updated textures varies depending on your hardware, but typically, it doesn’t exceed one minute and often happens much faster. Hop into your city with the Best Settings in Cities Skylines 2 when Virtual Texturing is processed.
These Windows settings might not give you a huge difference if you are on PC, but you will definitely see an improvement of 2 to 8% in Cities Skylines 2 by changing some of these settings.
