Same here! SInce v3, this moves like a heavy rock! i5 with 8GB ram and a GTX1060. Login takes for ever too!
Backed SC back in 2013 with a Hornet Tracker, hope they fix this because I too is losing patience with Mr Chris Roberts. Beside that, on kickstart they said the game would be finished in 2015, that´s three light years ago, and Iam sure they wont finish this year either!
But then, if you have folks buying $1,500 ships, well Iam sure you think your the God of the universe, just make more ships and keep on making more money! TBH I regreat every penny/euro I spent! I was just to hyped at the time (2013).
You want a real space sim, get Rogue System, a one man team and doing ALOT better then SC! Michale is a great guy too... Steam: Rogue System
