Was it always like this? I feel like it's slowing the game down for me a non-trivial amount. (I am playing on a netbook, so it's always pretty slow, but the ticking up/down seems to take forever and lag the game even more.)
I'd love for this to go away. No complaints about any of the other upgrades/changes, though! It all looks lovely. Maybe a "streamline Glitch for slow connections" button, or something?
