I seem to have run into a problem. I play on the Giant Earth Map with snail speed on 2.502 (I have XP, a 256 Mb GeForce 8600 and 2 Gb of ram). As there are quite a few civilizations (around 20 or so) and the world is quite large, it usually takes quite a lot of time for turns to come to an end. Even so, usually I only have to wait 1 or 2 minutes after I click the end turn button. I do get the occasional CTD, but not very often. I run quite high graphics settings as I don't really lag all that much. However, late in the industrial era, I clicked on the end turn button. Everything started well, movement on the map went very choppy as it always does, all the animation stopped and I saw that new scores were being calculated on the score board. Then, suddenly, all animation started working again and I could move around the map very smoothly, as if it were my turn. However, the cursor still showed its "thinking" animation, a flashing text on the bottom said "Waiting for other civilizations" and I couldn't do anything with my units. I could still access the pedia and main menu. It stayed in this very same state for around 10 minutes without any visible changes, at which point I quit the game. I tried again a few times, loading a save and ending the turn again, but this happens every time. I know that a new version of the mod is out, but I have invested quite some time in this save and I don't want to lose it . Should I lower my graphics settings or something? Is there any way to bypass this problem? EDIT: Hm, lowering the graphics to minimum didn't work. However, when I clicked "retire" in the main menu while waiting for the turn to end, the problem went away for a minute or so and I could start my turn normally before the dialogue box with "you lost" popped up.
