Game keeps slowing down

First off, the game is addicting. However, it seems there are a number of problems. I get my town population up to about 15 or so, and the game starts to lag. To the point, where even double speed is very slow. I saw one other post on this matter…and I believe it also happens when I begin to excavate the mountain side. My graphics are all turned down to the lowest settings. Is my PC just underpowered?

So after more testing, yes, it’s my rig. When there are miners, clouds/dust kicks up and it seems to be too much. As soon as they are done mining, the performance gets better.
