Hi everyone :D

I'm playing the game since 2017, it is dope!

What i'd really appreciate is get a setting letting you choose if you want to download current skin of your opponents once racing against them on a server. It's already nice being able to replace ugly bikes by stock ones; but it would be great to see actual opponent as he is without downloading the 2000 topics of the forum!

This has been suggested alot over the years. This would be a nice feature however...
This means it would also download private skins/models people have and don't want to share...
And imagine how big your personal folder will get if it downloads every skin someone uses online ...

Not to mention downloading 40 4k skins at 16mb a pop just for a race restart.

It would be Nice if the skins could be rendered during the race (maybe an Option to turn it on/off). Just for the Visuals

Maybe if we still had traditional HD packs but as of late, every model and skin has become a total resource hog.

isn't it possible to lock skins if you don't want to share them? just to be able to visualise it without using it if this is really the issue?
the issue about size? i would say it is up to everyone; if you have memory why not using it? if not either don't active the option or buy additionnal hard drive
