What exactly is happening at the end of the month that causes lag? I thought it was the growth of cities but I set growth factor to 0 and the lag was still there. Also I saw buildings upgrade when growth factor was set to 0. Does that mean the setting isn’t working?
My game always freezes for a few seconds at the end of each month. (Not as long as when I save a game.) This freeze gets longer as the population grows later in the game. (I always play large size maps, starting in 1850.)
Maybe I didn’t write it clearly but in this game the freeze is abnormal compared to my other experiences. I know about the usual freeze, but this map isnt even that big and developed and it freezes like hell.
I kind of figured it out by now. Because I wanted to keep the cities small to prevent lag I surrounded them by rails. And it seems when cities are blocked like that it increases end of the month freezes a lot. Once you remove those rails freeze is almost gone but then cities grow huge and it as back. No way to keep the game running smooth I guess.
