1 - Does the game take a long time for everyone to load, or is it just me? From click until I get the main game menu, it's almost two minutes.

2 - I have a gas mining station that never upgraded by itself, so I told it to upgrade. Now it's stuck, saying it can't upgrade because of a lack of steel. I have a TON of unreserved steel at my nearby homeworld. Shouldn't a private freighter bring some over? Any idea what I can do to encourage this?

Thanks!

2 minutes is not too bad...... the machine I am using for creating my mod takes 5 minutes to get to the main menu.
I am on a low spec pc at the moment until I fix my main computer so more powerful machines will have a faster loading time.

My game takes one minute to load, but I'm on a pretty decent PC.

You're right about the mining station upgrade. If it's low on steel, it will have to wait until a freighter brings some steel to it. There's no way to force the freighter to come.

Thanks for the replies.

My rig is 7 years old, but was very high end at the time, so I guess 2 minutes is about right.

The base did finally upgrade. No idea why it took the private freighters so long to deliver the steel, but it did happen :)

I also have a 7 year old rig, but I did upgrade it with an SSD which is probably why the game is loading in just over one minute.
