I can't seem to play for more than 2 or 3 minutes without a minidump error, using the Rec. graphics settings, and even tried lowering my resolution to 1024-768, I'll try windowed now... Could 'CrossfireX'(similar to NVidia's SLI) be the issue?

Also, have a look at

If you have not done so already

I have not had personal experience with CFX or SLI but I have come across a comment ... "On multiple GPU computers, turning off SLI will improve Sins performance."

Thanks for the link, yeah a lot of programs are like that, despite popular belief. Anyway, disabling it made it run slightly smoother, but still the minidump. I'll scour the link's info, and try anything recommended there.

Going for a redownload, even lowest settings causes it to crash, so I'm thinking it's not running out of ram at all, since I've got 16 and it can only use 2...

-edit- Actually, my friend set up a profile for it in CCC to give the gfx a huge boost, so I deleted that, let me try it again.

Those effect settings seem to let you go much higher than before. I thought they used to be lower. good thing you fixed the random minidumps, I would get pretty far in a game and have it randomly crash. also, did you get a chance to fix the galaxy files differing from host error on multiplayer?

There a couple of problems ...minor ones I think ... after going through the mod with a fine tooth comb. The problem which definitely caused the mini-dump was the use of a TEC Titan ability by the TA ... the developers have made that ability exclusive to the TEC's, go figure.

I found no problems with the GalaxyScenarioDef.galaxyScenarioDef. Keep me posted if the multiplayer problem continues

You have the mod buried one folder too deep ... this happens because of how unzipping programs work these days, they can create a folder that is the same name as the archive and unzipp everything into it. The mod folder is inside that folder. That's the one you want.

I'm really eager to read this book,but it's so hard to find the link to this book(in china),do you know where to find this type of books?(English or Chinese is not important).As for other race,do you have any protype for them,or they are just brust out of your mind?:-)

You can find E.E Doc Smith books on amazon.
Alternatively you maybe able to find digital versions on a torrent.
Check out his other great series called the Lensmen

The TA were based broadly on BSG
The Replicators were based around the ability to replicate there ships ... a machine race seemed appropriate

I think the real book is hard to be sent from foreign country.Maybe the digital version is more suitable. By the way, what's the full name of BSG? And I really wonder you work all those realise yourself or you are just the speaker of a group.I thought a big mod must be made by a dozen of people like the Skyrim.

That is reall unbelieve. You must have mastered the 3DMAX and the data system of SSE.I have tried to make a simple like just a new ship, but it is seemed that SSE doesn't allowed a moudle input from outside......And the list limit of Titan is just TWO.Though I have rigested the third Titan......it still crash.
