Saving .c4d file with thinking particles takes forever

Hey guys, I'm a long time 3dsMax'er but new to C4d, and I've got a scene with a couple of clouds that I made using the cloud generator plugin. It uses a combination of Thinking Particles and Pyrocluster to generate some really nice looking clouds, also on custom mesh. They render quite fast but when the particle count gets higher (more than 5000 particles in 1 scene), somehow saving the .c4d file starts taking FOREVER. I'm talking +10mins of saving for a file with 12000 particles here. The .c4d file gets quite big as well, 132mb. Is this normal or does it have something to do with the way the plugin is set up or how I tweaked it?
