So I guess the question is: is it getting worse?

I dunno. It could just be that we have a more comprehensive list of things that cause it.

EDIT: Just did a quick test.

loading a map with no changes at all immediately after entering foundry gave me a load time of a few seconds.

adding two objects to the map upped the load time to 4 mins.

closing the project and reopening it dropped the load time to a few secs.

moving the two objects into their correct spots had no observable effect on load times.

I'm not saying that the workaround doesn't work. I was simply elaborating on it.

Its valuable info. We need to know if things change. Would be a good idea to test various things with the costume editor since you said that might have been slowing you down.

When I last did tweaking to my mission less than 2 weeks ago the loading time was normal again, thought it had been fixed.

Interesting. I really haven't tested the costumes stuff. Thanks for digging.

Well I did more testing, copying a costume caused a slowdown, as did minor changes like changing skin color or hair style. Just one tiny change gave me a 4 minute loading screen.
