Anyone play this game? It's from Stardock and Ironclad games.

It's a galaxy based strategy game with the use for so many possibilities from mods users have created.

Many "Homeworld" gamers have picked up this game and really enjoy it.

I enjoy strategy games and this gaming engine they use is phenomenal.

The space battles are awesome, excellent graphics. AMD is now using this game to benchmark systems.

There are mods in the works on the forums for a "Star Trek" theme and a "Star Wars" theme. I would have loved Empire at War if it was built under this engine.

They just released a patch not long ago to 1.05. Said they fixed some single and multiplayer bugs, you might give the patch a try.
