I can verify the slowdown, at least on my older (but still more than capable of running the game easily) laptop

Also, bounty hunters are dangerous, I just about got one-shotted by one.

Logic question: why do the races desire fighter techs when they never actually use fighters?

They use demilitarised versions for high stake races in the jetdromes they build on highly populated colonies, to keep the happiness rate high despite the crowding.

Shouldn't Drakk use fighters? It's what they specialize in, after all.

By the way, I think it'd be useful if the Resume button tooltip would mention the race and level of the last ship played.

I too must report slowdown... I used to play on full details in large sector without lags and now tiny sector with absolutely minimum details is unplayable... Something somewhere is quite lagging it

Seems I get the lag on one laptop but not the other (at least I haven't noticed it yet)

First guess: AMD video cards for the folks who are having problems?

My rig is a 2.6 ghz AMD quad core with 4 gigs of ddr3 and a hd-4850 card. A bit old but performance should be better.

Another minor annoyance : When distributing crew points, the Engineering tooltip covers up most of the character screen. It's the only stat tooltip that does this.

Technology items and Doomsday Weapons are marked as identified after the player tries to pick them up without any space left in their inventory.

Ok, I'm trying to reproduce the slowdown issue, but so far no luck. Basically I need more information. Is it everything or is just when certain things happen? Did everyone just update to a new driver version, as in has something else changed? How long after a resume does the problem show up?

IT happens for me when lots of things are on the screen. Seems to happen every time. I haven't had a chance to play much on this computer yet. My other computer uses NVIDIA and I've had no problems, but it's a stronger machine (both machines should play this game easily- both are quad-cores with over 1Gig graphics gards, though my older laptop which is having the problems is about 2.5 years old now)
