How to you find the performance and stability? You running it on a supercomputer?
Heh, my computer says she's flattered by your compliment. It's not really that powerful of a machine though, as it's a bit dated. An old Core i7 2.8 gig processor. A newer GeForce GTX 760 graphics card, but the game isn't very graphically intense.
The game takes probably a solid 20-30 seconds to generate a map or load a saved game, but from that point it hums along fine. AI turns take probably 3 or 4 seconds.
The game has occasional crashes, which are annoying when they happen, but nothing an autosave can't fix. I've played it through several times either to completion or to the point where I'm the dominant power on the map. I'm currently playing at the AI level two points above challenging (I forget what that level is called) and probably gonna up it a notch again soon.
The only recurring issue that I've had is the Fame 3 issue that I wrote about in this thread.
