    Gandwarf: I have 10 second redraws with just a dozen houses when turning on effects!
    How big do you do your documents?
    I have put in 1000x1000...

    LOL Hoel... it's not that bad on my computer.
    My maps tend to slow down a bit when there's 100+ entities. It gets worse and worse from there. The Concetron map has thousands of entities for example
    Most of my maps are 1000x800.

    There's a few way to increase performance. I never have effects on while actively building and you can decrease some effects. See my second set of tutorials how to do that. It will be a lot faster. Unfortunately the eye candy suffers of course.
    CAD programs are known to require insane amounts of resources
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    Building without effects is a given.
    I can run crysis on max without any slowdowns, but not a simple vector program... thats sad.

    Agreed, I would like it to be faster as well. Unfortunately it's not like Photoshop. I think CAD programs have some specific requirements.

    Still, it's fast enough for me and you know I have created some very large maps.

    Back on topic: do you think you are going to finish this map Morkhdull?

    Slight jack here: don't worry about PS, sometimes when doing a layer style it will spin my hard drive for 20 minutes before actually doing anything and often it will start popping up numerous "help" windows.

    @Ascension - I get those annoying HELP windows too at times, though I rarely have the delay problem.

    @Morkhdull - This is coming along nicely.

    Good to see that you keep coming back Morkhdull.
    One question: what's up with the domes in the river? They look to be flooded at the moment.
