So I create just like hundreds of Federation ships mostly Defiant-class and Sovereign-class.

There is just like a huge pile of ships there lol. When the Jem'Hadar ships come in they get hit with about 70 or 80 phaser beams plus a whole mass of Qauntum torpedoes.

Even if my Dell has a 2.66 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM

I guess I am just running too many ships at one time?

Maybe the processor is getting saturated with too many threads and all the AI overhead for all those ships.

Here is some of my system information.

Thanks all,

I have modded A2 to increase crew and mining ability. Also since I mostly play Borg with Rom allie I lowered build times for other races too. It really changes things. I regularly have 4-500 ships at max and get constant waves of attacking enemies which I love. I have a 2.0 P4 with 512 MB RAM and have no problems on the 50,000x50,000 maps with 36 planets I run. I have enlisted 1 million crew with 900,000+ usually and killed as many as 3,200 enemy ships in instant action with no worries. Like you I see enemy colored dots just melt away in my mass of ships on the mini map. Hey its Armada so that means lots of ships :)

That is SO cool :). You know the Nanotechnology researchers have already put 32 (1 GHz) processors on a dime-sized chip.

Imagine that ::).

Can you determine what I am doing wrong? As the combat really slows down with all those ships attacking?

I really appreciate your help and it was so cool getting your post :).

Best,
