Out of Memory Error: Java heap space
« on: March 15, 2016, 11:19:44 AM »

Hello everyone. I hope you are all well today :)

Ok, even if I know why I am getting this, I still have to ask. Is the game nicely telling me to not make such a large Nexerelin map?

I am on 0.7.1a, but I doubt that is the problem. I wanted to test if my pc could handle the new Nexerelin options maximized. If I just play without saving, the game is fine without problems. After saving 3-4 times, the game decided that it is time to crash.

I have every possible faction Nexerelin can handle, with SS+ along too. Although as I have seen, the map size seems to have a larger impact than just having more factions.

This is the error;

I can't understand this, but I feel it is just telling me "tone down the planets or get more RAM!

I am on 0.7.1a, but I doubt that is the problem.

It might be, as 0.7.2a fixed a memory leak.

Time to play on 0.7.2a XD But I am sure making such an enormous map contributes >> Thanks for the reply Alex :)

Edit
Indeed 0.7.2a does not have such a problem, even with a really huge map like I mentioned. Not to mention the whole game plays so much faster O.O Thanks once more :)
