Trading takes very long to process

Has anybody else noticed this or is this maybe even expected?
But sending more than one tech level at a time (and waiting 10-15-20s to process) is basically impossible.


You have my vote.

Every time you send a tech trade it does a full universe update. The game downloads the positions of all the carriers and stars you can see. This is the main reason for the slow tech transfers.

I think the main reason it does this is because you might be sending an ally a scanning level. So stars within your new scanning radius need to be updated. The data on the empire screens are also cached I believe so need a full update to refresh them.

Cheers, thanks for the insight, the only game I am currently participating in is a 64 player one, so I am guessing that makes the issue even worse, as explained by you.
