Sins of a Solar Empire Thread

Ok so I decided to bite the bullet and pre-order Sins of a Solar Empire so I could join the Preorder Beta (no NDA hehe :) they have going on. I loved Homeworld and have been waiting for something similar for a long time.

All in all I was surprised how well the engine is working, I didnt get any crashes over a 4 hour gaming session. I was able to play at 1680x1050 with High textures and 4x sampling, although once I got my planets to a high degree of development it started slowing down; also in large fleet battles it is very slow. Not bad considering how antiquated my rig is (Im on a Athlon XP 2500+ with a Radeon 9800 w/ 1g ram) and its still a beta, so its ripe for optimizing. Should end up being soft on the graphics front.

Its been forever since the last good space RTS, so Im hoping they make this work out.

Anyone else here playing SoaSE beta?
