10 minutes? That's not normal in my experience...
- How much memory does your computer have?
- What settings are you using? (Map size, number of stars, number of empires, etc?)
- Roughly how long have you been playing? (What year is it in the game?)
- What version of the game do you have? (I'm on 220.127.116.11)
- Do you use any mods?
I have played with 4GB of RAM, a HDD and the max settings and it may have taken a minute to save, but no more than that.
On my desktop (16GB RAM with SSD) it takes maybe 10 to 15 seconds.
P.S. Please stop swearing, shouting and griping; we Are trying to help, and we're just users too...
oh MatBailie, what, you never had a bad day? you never been in a bad mood? people get frustrated. I know this is silly to worry about a game and get mad but I've been playing distant worlds for a year. I am addicted. I do actually like the game. What you might be forgetting is that this game has been around now for a bit and some of the "problems" have also been around for years and they don't seem to want to fix them. Pirate play is a major one, which is funny because they even came out with a whole game called Shadows. How simple game concepts don't work is pretty amazing..(uh civilian sector ring a bell?) unfortunately a lot of things don't work. But i continue to play because luckily there are other aspects that keep me playing.
having said all that. I do appreciate you all trying to help. I do understand that.
unfortunately I do know a little bit about tweaking and systems. For example I have an 840 Evo SSD and 16 gigs DDR3L 1600 ram and a i7 4700mq CPU
so you tell me why i would have trouble running distant worlds universe?
However, I will tell you run distant worlds off of a m.2 (ngff) super cache 2 SSD. It's from a company called mydigitalssd.
here are the tests from the official company website and below that i will post mine..
-So you can clearly see I had a "write" speed issue which is most definitely causing the slow saving game speed. it may have been 3-5 minutes by the way.. not literally 10 minutes.
I probably should install the game to the 840 Evo SSD. -Strike that- guess what, i just thought that i will just save games to the 840 EVo.. not install the game there.. so then i can just load/save games off the 840 EVo but not have it installed there.
