    Does a fast SSD help with late game performance?
    As soon as the map fills up and your land size and # of cities increases beyond some point the game starts to slow down more and more when you move around alot and have many units on the move which is why even though i have a fast cpu and therefore fast turn times i prefer not having gigantic map size. So i wonder wether a faster drive will help with that.

    Also having more than 8Gb ram as well. Especially with today's comps were background apps are running all the time. Win 10 has played a part in this situation.

    Kinda, that savebreaker marked the start of a freeze period before the release of v41. Sorry for only discussing that on discord, not taking it here to the forum.
    A pretty extensive housecleaning branch was merged into master late last night, which reduce RAM usage somewhat and breaks saves.

    Depends on how many bug reports we get, the more we get the longer it will be.
    We would like to get v41 out pretty fast, so if there's no serious bug reports the first 10 days we may do the release already then I think.

    Edit: Additionally, if someone on the team think we should make it longer we'll make it longer.

    You all have done great on the RAM usage. I am getting games a lot farther than I used to and have not had a MAF in a long time. This with giant maps and not such a great video card.

    Saves from v40 won't work on v41, save compatibility was broken twice between those two.

    Is it the same as playing the latest (or at least 11/18) SVN or are there any significant differences?

    It's pretty much identical as long as it's the same revision number. The version was updated in a file setting and that would be the only difference if you have the same revision#.

    Yeah, I got that already.
    Kinda asked before checking, sorry.
    So I was playing v41 already, just not the "official package" version.

    Its already fixed on github, but sourceforge doesn't want to cooperate at all since last week.

    By the way don't post in SVN thread.
