What if I don't have 32 GB for the largest map?

Posted on Friday, February 1, 2019

I'm sure the question has been asked, but I don't seem to be able to find it.

I have 16GB on my Win7 rig. When selecting galaxy size, when I start getting up to the largest maps the display shows I need 32GB. Yet I can create and start playing a game with that map size. What is the issue with having less than the recommended RAM, and would the fact that I have a fast processor and am using an SSD rather than an HDD mitigate the issue?

Thanks for any help!
