SoGE is a Star Wars Total Conversion for SoaSE: Rebellion with it's roots in the Homeworld 2 mod Star Wars: Warlords which features the two primarily sides of the Galactic Civil War, the Clone Wars, and the Yuuzhan Vong War. The current public version works for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion 1.80/1.82+ and, with or without, all DLC.
Turn off anti-aliasing to ensure particle effects like lasers show up, and for better stability.

Yesterday ScorpionTail figured out one of the most strange mysteries of SoaSE: Rebellion, why lasers and other particle effects do not show up at times. Turns out the culprit is anti-aliasing; setting this to "None" ensures that Sins renders all particle effects, and also appears to be resulting in better game stability, useful in particular during MP matches. As such, I must say that everyone should turn off anti-aliasing and I once again thank ScorpionTail for his discovery and insight into something that's been boggling me for over a year now.
