My computer is listed in my profile description and is well beyond what star sector requires and more, yet I seem to get affected with a random slowdown after those hours in-game + saves take 2 minutes to save instead of the 5 seconds it takes during those 2 hours. I have allocated 8gb of ram to SS with it taking up at max 6GB of the 8 I allocated. I'm not sure whether it's time I say goodbye to having so many ship mods and factions or to delete the Adjusted sector even though I only doubled the sector size and specs by a factor of 2 not 3 like the default.

Can anyone give me some idea or a grasp on how I can remedy my situation without hammering my mods down? I keep on hearing about memory leak issues with the game itself in accordance with many mods together but my case is no longer valid since I'm on 0.91a.
