Anyone having a problem with Galactic Civilizations 3 Crusade freezing and running VERY slow on Large maps later in the game, like after turn 20 or so? I am running the newest version 2.71 and the problem has been there for quite a long time. Usually I give up playing and start over a new game. Or even just stick to smaller maps.
I have a very good laptop that should not have any problems with this game. Its an MSI GT72 VR 6RD Dominator Bought just for gaming and it is fast and smooth with other games so I am assuming its NOT the laptop. So what gives? Any ideas? I have looked over the settings and I do NOT see anything that stands out to me that would slow things down. I'm no expert so I need your help!
I am currently playing a LARGE map with 10 players, 9 AI and Me. I was good until turn 17 when it starts to freeze for several seconds every time I click "OK" on something and change screens. Or when any ship movement there is a pause of several seconds before you can move on. Any updates on planets, each placement of an improvement has a pause of several seconds. Drives Me NUTS!! Eventually I just give up and stop playing that game. A medium or smaller map can finish to the end no problems.
Any Ideas? PLEASE tell me its not just the game and everyone else has same problem...
