Halfway through the game, my screen will pause and I hear my fans turn on in my rig and CHUG like no tomorrow. 1 minute later, unfreezes the screen and keeps going.
Memory being used is like 99% of physical memory.
After this point, just moving a ship takes a 4 second pause before it moves.
Maybe cuz I am playing on a 27" with 1440p? But it seems more CPU / RAM intensive than video intensive at this point...
This -ALWAYS- happens. No matter what game I am playing (at least on very large maps with many opponents) so its not a save game issue.
Its not a memory leak issue either, as restarting the game and loading it doesn't "fix" it. I mean, It makes it better fora few minutes but comes right back.
I can play Civilization 5 on the biggest damn maps with tons of opponents and it doesn't get this bad, so something is up with the game engine.
