Yes, it is still very slow with 255-system galaxy and 20 players. At around turn 80, it took at least 15 minutes to process the turns. Also, the game kept crashing unless you save the game, quit SEV, and restart SEV again, every few turns. It looks like the memory leak problem is still there.

Hopefully things will be better when the next patch comes out.

the recent betas mentioned fixing some turn processing issues, but the patch hasn't been released yet.

Wow! This new patch sure shortened the processing time. The 255-system, 20-player game that used to take over 15 minutes to process turns now takes only about 2 minutes! This is excellent.

On a Pentium D 2.80 Ghz w/2 Gig Ram, in a large universe (stock settings w/ latest balanced mod, w/ 10 races my turns have gone from 24 minutes to process to 8 minutes. So a three fold improvement for me. I'll take it.

Now if I could only get Arron to add back the "Systems To Avoid" toggle to the planets list menu...

BTW, could someone post the e-mail to reach Arron? Thanks!
