Hey sk0tie and Dan, if you can hear me through all these yells for help... I had a thought (rare as they are) about the "long wait between turns on big maps" issue. Is there any chance is may have something to do with trade? Why I say this is when you get to over a 100 cities the PC must work out who can trade what with who for each city and things must get hairy. On my "Huge" I noticed that when I finished building three airports in three towns on the same turn, the time it took before giving me the option screen in that city was really long (around 3 minutes). The same happened with harbours. All other city inmprovements that were built in that turn let me select a new option to build right away without a wait. So you guys that have the long wait, avoid building 100 airports at the same time Anyhow, just a thought. I recon you guys probably know what's causing it already and are trying to remedy the situation. Many thanks for attempting to right the wrongs!
