All credit goes to ThisPlaceIsHell on Reddit. TL;DR: With modifying settings.xml you can increase the ped and vehicle variety to 10 times what the maxed sliders give you for almost no performance impact. You can also modify the density to have TONS of cars and peds, but anything higher than 1.5 seems to cause a crash in 15-30 minutes. Trust me, it's worth it. Here's an example from the reddit post:

looks like using this actually makes color variety worse. I think the game chooses color at random. So there's no way to really edit it.

Why couldn't rockstar add this as an option...I wonder...is all of this to keep the peasants happy?

Their in-game sliders only increase traffic slightly.

don't overdo this, since too much causes your game to crash or spawn only black&white cars. Density to 1.4 and variety to 8.0 should be ok.

You say 1.4 for density, and 8.0 for variety, but the guy on reddit says to modify only "PedVarietyMultiplier" and "VehicleVarietyMultiplier".

 

But there is also "CityDensity"

 

So should I set CityDensity to 1.4 and both variety multipliers to 8.0?

Yes it is. Blame the people with 10 year old dualcore CPU's and integrated GPU's. But at least it's better than consoles.

Now we need a way to "soften" the cars i.e make the car damage more realistic

 

I hope there is a way to do that

It works but it makes 90% of cars black,grey or white.

Change both of of those to his values. Then change CityDensity above them to a max of 1.5 if you wish.

 

Note that the game will know that you changed the variety variables and tell you you're using a ridiculous amount of VRAM (5 to 10GB) but it actually only increases VRAM usage by about 200-300MB.

 

Density works at 1-1.5. Above that, the game will still increase the density, but it WILL crash. 2.0 density makes my game crash in about half an hour--one guy on Reddit said 3.0 density results in insane amounts of traffic and gridlock but the game will crash within a minute or two.

variety increases chance of different cars at once and density adds more vehicles on the road reducing the empty road space every given moment,  basically generating traffic rush hour

Since someone else revived this recently, does this still work?  And also can I do it on my Steam game?  The one issue I've always found is the place seems so empty all of the time.
