Looks fantastic but I get memory errors after turning space engine on and after 1 or 2 minutes and CTD. Anyone knows why?

This is the error message :

Do you have last version of arma3?

How much RAM and VideoMemory you have ?

It's peak of memory usage on height 100-200km height.

I want to optimise memory usage in this moment.

Also I will add settings menu with texture qulity settings, for VideoCard with lower 890MB Memory.

Temporary solution - close hard background programs before start arma or change arma setting texture to "High".

Your PC: 16 Gigs DDR3 @1600, Nvidia 760 4gb.

It's strange. I have 4Gb RAm and Nvidia 890mb and haven't this problem on VeryHigh texture Settings. I will try to find why some PC have this problem.

Made a quick test with lower texture and object details and game crashed again. Don't know why.

I'm getting an out of memory error every time I reach about 29-30 000 meters up, like some engine transition is failing. I have 8 gig ram and ~33% used before launching Arma 3. It's dissapointing.

[uPDATE]

Fixed using -malloc

Nikiforos, froggyluv, try to add in ce_run.bat: "-malloc=system"

ce_run.bat:

//----------------------------------------------------------

start celoader.exe

start arma3.exe -malloc=system -mod=@Cosmos

exit

//-----------------------------------------------------------
