Im having a very annoying issue; whenever the game has to load resources for new ships/portraits/textures etc... the game freezes something like 5-20 seconds before i can do anything again.... this happens ALL THE TIME! It happens even when i choose race. It is making the game extremely frustrating to play to the point of just quitting.
For information my specs are:
Intel I5 2500K
Nvidia 580 GTX
Windows 7 x64
Its the Ultimate Edition on Steam if that makes any difference.
Edit: Damn it, this was supposed to be in the Bug report section...
