    If you restart and you want to diminish between turn times, we've recently confirmed a person can play a simultaneous multi-player game as the only player by starting the game from the lan lobby and making sure to set all ai players as ais.

    This will mean much of their processing takes place during your turn and some realtime movement strategies exist in this sort of game as they are making moves at the same time you are but that also keeps the turn times lower as they get to take their time thinking while you take your turn. Normally that'd all happen in between your turns. And we didn't show any OOS errors emerging in such a game as there's no other computers you're synching with.

    Tried starting up a game from the LAN option but it doesnt load, just crashes to desktop after 20 seconds or so (no tip message or anything)
