    I played for ten minutes and it crashed. Also it brought my (pretty decent) rig to its knees even on “Medium”.

    However, it IS the most beautiful-looking space game I’ve ever seen.

    I’m hoping crash-fixes and some sort of optimization is in its future.

      Oh man, sorry to hear it crashed for you. Been running like butter for me. And yes, OMG, it’s so gorgeous. EVEN THE ROCKS ARE PRETTY TO LOOK AT. The. Rocks.

      • Moonrogue says:

        What resolution/GPU are you at that it runs like “butter”? On 1920×1080/high with a GTX-660, it’s playable, but there’s definitely no butter involved, at least during the first mission with all of those cargo ships and capital ships.

    After listening to the podcast I intended to buy it. Good thing a friend beat me to it. And what a downer :(

    It is running awfully badly on his computer which is leaps and bounds beyond mine. The lack of graphical options is extremely annoying. It’s also lacking control group hotkeys, which is a cardinal sin in any RTS. Sure it’s pretty but the UI itself is really impractical. Also, as far as RTS go, the first missions I could look at were very basic.

    • Moonrogue says:

      It has the same control-group hotkeys as every other modern RTS (ctrl-1 to set group 1, “1” to recall group 1, etc.)

  3. Serial Kicked says:

    Oh my. Yeah now that you made me think of it french vs english keyboard issue.
    Yeah maybe he forgot to reset all the key correctly. I know we did for the WASD vs ZQSD.

  4. Moonrogue says:

    French keyboards have “1” in a different spot? :D

    • Serial Kicked says:

      Nope but you need to use uppercase to get the top numbers, so usually instead of 1-9 it’s the symbols, parenthesis and punctuations sumbols that appear when setting the keys for a game designed for US qwerty.

  5. Great podcast. I think I’ll wait on purchasing until I have that RTS itch. Hopefully by then some of the performance issues will be addressed.
