Does anyone know what this warning is trying to say:

* Warning: Design size of 6011 instances exceeds ModelSim ALTERA recommended capacity.  # This may because you are loading cell libraries which are not recommended with  # the ModelSim Altera version. Expect performance to be adversely affected.

Hi Aditya, Good day to you! You're getting this warning because your design is large and it contains larger number of nodes that you're trying to simulate with free version. It also cause the execution time to increase. ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA Starter Edition (No License required, Limitation in design size), where as ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA Edition (License required, No Limit in design size). Kindly check the difference for both edition in link below. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/software/programmable/quartus-prime/model-sim.html Thank you.
