I have noticed an CPU heavy use after the last update (1.5.2 >> 1.6.0). Using the 1.5.2 i have the processor at 23-24 °C, with the 1.6.0 27-29 °C.
That's strange, I really didn't change a whole lot with this update, but perhaps something with Electron itself changed. I will do some tests and try to figure out what's up.
Seems the problem isn't correlated to the launcher directly (standalone version have the same problem).
Often, when i do some operation, like create a new city row (25 medium city), or a triantanium medium city, or adv shipyards map, the cpu usage remain elevate, and the game after some time become choppy, with low frame rate. As if the game keeps reworking old information.
It has to be with the later builds of Electron I think :-/
I really haven't changed anything in the launcher to cause an increase in CPU usage.
Are you noticing this just in My Colony, or in pretty much everything?
