This tool will patch a 32 bit executable to let it use up to 4GB of RAM on a 64 bit system; normally it is limited to 2GB. This improved my framerate by about 50%, even when it wasn't using all that much memory. I imagine it will help with long running turn processing too...

WARNING: This tool is only intended for use on a *64 bit system*; I don't know what it would do on a 32 bit system; I imagine it would break your se5.exe and require you to reinstall the game if you didn't make a backup! So you should probably back up your se5.exe before patching it...

edit: this feature must be built in to the Steam version of the game because it already runs at a higher framerate and applying the patch did nothing to it...
