Extreme slow down in foundry

Honestly, if you're hitting the limits on all your maps and also using all 15 maps, you might want to reconsider. It sounds to me like your mission might either be too long, or have a lot of unnecessary map transitions (ex: warp into a system to scan one thing and then warp out).
My missions are all about 1.5-3 hours long and each one only uses about 5 maps. Granted, it depends how much each map holds too, but using all 15 maps sounds a bit worrying to me.
That being said, you can always copy and split your mission into 2 or 3 parts later, so it's not the end of the world. But when you finally finish and go to play it, I would be prepared to do that if it turns out to be too long.
Either way, the both of us are locked out of the Foundry for now due to the poor performance. I'd like to get my missions back up, but I'm not willing to fight with the lag.
Hopefully the next update will improve things a bit more, so I can get back to work.
