Optimize the scene in big city models

Hi all,

I started working in CityEngine about 6 months ago for my graduation thesis. I must create the city model of my town, Cosenza (Italy) using gis data. I created a big city model (the total surface is about 623.74 square kilometers). I created the terrain with a tiff image (heightmap), and the resolution is 4096x4096. The streets are imported from open street map and the buildings footprints are imported from shapefiles.

When I try to execute simple operations with the streets and the model I have to wait a lot of time before CE finish the operation. It is very frustrating an time-wasting. My computer is not so bad (My Computer is an MSI GT70 Dominator pro, with 32gb ddr3 1866mhz of ram, nvidia gtx880m graphic card with 8gb of dedicated memory, and intel i7 4930mx 3.2 ghz cpu).

How can I optimize my scene? Any suggestions?
