Hello! We have doubts about the performance limitations in the Notes section of the announcement board (" Codes that cause great delay in their allotted timestep process (for example, each second simulated equals 5 seconds in real time) will be terminated after 15 minutes real time."). First of all: what hardware is going to be used to run the simulation? as this will greatly impact performance, and we cannot measure if our code complies with restriction otherwise. Even then, it’s likely that our team will get disqualified for this reason. We didn’t know this restriction was in place and, correct us if we are wrong, we don’t believe it has been mentioned before. If we knew about this before, we would have made radically different decisions in the design of our code to take it into account. It is almost certainly impossible for us to improve performance so drastically in the few days we have left, it would involve an almost complete redesign of something we have been working on for six months. Is there anything else we can do about this?
