checked the settings on my IPAD3 the room animations were off by standart... so someone must be aware of the games inability to run on IPAD 3..

turning it on changes it from laggy to "screenshot mode"..

nothing in the APP store text indicated issues with lower than IPAD 4 devices.

yeah it says it will be laggy on older IPAD devices, and laggy does not mean unplayable.. (and i dont really see the ipad 3 as the "older IPAD" device)

seems like a memory issues, but still. its a PIXEL GAME.. a quite simple one. must be som really faulty programming.

ITS a really cool game, hope it gets fixed. so far i only got 1 hour of smooth gameplay.

Try turning the BG music off.

There is some thing weird on the ipad3 that is causing this. It never happened while beta testing on them.

Hopefully a patch will be out soon.

My game haven´t been lagging as much as before. I just played the game whit the lag on for some time and then it suddenly dipasered only to show itself again when I repair my space ship.

I now have one of the bigger ships and all rooms filled out and there is no lag at all. So could it be the small ship that is lagging?

I got rid of it by deleting the dodge generator room and having a shield booster instead... Strange.

Are those rooms upgraded?

Did you have upgrades for the dodge generator?

Hi i have an iPad 3 and have the same lag issue, i have the first ship, full crew, and nearly every ship add on. I have narrowed down the lag to my Engineering room which has full upgrades, if i stand an Engineer on a floor square, facing the control panel of the energy tank upgrade i experience game lag can some one else please try this, ill try this on my iPhone 5 to see if it is the same

I can confirm this!

If crew members are simply standing in the Engine room and/or Dodge Generator room, the game gets a huge framerate drop. In the engine room I have upgrade 1 & 2, in the dodge room I have upgrade 2 & 3.

Edit: I'm on iPad mini, latest updates.

I believe this is an AI issue where they are trying to move to a location they can not move to. I'll make sure the developers know and find out what's up asap

There is no crew movement whatsoever when I get lag, it doesn't seem to be the pathfinding.

--- > My Dodge and Engine rooms are empty, the framerate is perfect.
----> I move a crew member to the Dodge OR Engine room on any square.
----> While he walks, framerate is perfect.
----> As soon as he stops on the square I assigned, the framerate drops significantly.
----> I remove him from the room, the framerate is perfect.
