If you're playing Sins of a Solar Empire
you might want to check out the new patch which entered beta today. In typical Stardock fashion the patch not only fixes some things but adds a bunch of content and improvements to the game. These include a new graphics engine, visuals, and a host of other new features. Keep in mind that this is beta code so only download it from Impulse if you don't mind taking the risk that the code could bomb out on you.
Sins of a Solar Empire v1.1 Beta has Arrived
The next major update for Sins of a Solar Empire, the best-selling PC strategy game of 2008 that puts the player in command of an interstellar empire at war, is here!
Since the new update is so huge and contains several brand new technologies, we?re going to be offering it as an optional beta for those who want to help test and provide feedback.
Version 1.1 not only includes a host of play balancing changes but new content such as an updated graphics engine, updated visuals, new damage animations, and more. It also includes a new multiplayer system called "Alloy" which eliminates the need for configuring routers or changing port numbers.
