    It's been a while since I've tried to play, I haven't been able to play a complete game in forever it seems like, but I feel like this problem might be specific enough to give a good idea what the problem is. On the turn when i complete Launch Earth Satellite, the game crashes after it uncovers 3 or 4 natural wonders.

    Briefly, my rig: i5-2500k, 32gb of DDR3 ram, 2xNvidia 960 gtx 4gb SLI

    This is on a YnAMP giant map, which I know is problematic - I've read you need 8gb of vram to play giant maps, but am unclear on whether 4gb cards in SLI would do the trick. Also, I know my CPU is old as dirt, and I've been debating upgrading to an i5-9400f, new mobo, and ddr4 memory. I'm wondering if yall think, with that ~$400 investment, I might finally be able to play a giant map game to completion. Thoughts?

    The game is unstable at map size larger than "enormous" since the Gathering Storm patch, no computer can run the Giant Earth now.

    Use smaller map, or, as said on the map description, use the YnAMP option to crop it to a smaller region.
