What little of the mod I've played I love it, only problem is I am getting mini dumps seemingly as soon as I build the Trader factions corvette craft (haven't tested this extensively yet). Using a big map with 9 AI and all the recommended settings and the 4gb exe thing but it still crashes very VERY early in the game.
Did some testing today it isn't the corvettes as i suspected. Even at reduced video settings I'm still getting minidumps while sins is showing its using 1.2 gigs of Ram in the task manager.
More testing, Game still minidumps on minimum settings. exact same spot as on recommended settings.
Tested on a smaller map with only 4 AI still at minimum settings Game minidumps before I can colonize my first planet. Mem usage 1.17Gigs
I've run 7DS, Distant stars and a number of other Sins mods on this system days before trying maelstrom without any trouble at all.
My system specs are:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Quad core 3.4 GHZ
16 Gigs Ram
64 Bit Win 7 Home Premium
NVIDIA Geforece GTX 560
I am running the steam copy of SoaSE Rebellion 1.82 and am using R8 Maelstrom.
I really want to enjoy this mod but it IS unplayable in this state. if anyone has any ideas of what i could do to fix this I'm all ears.
Alright well i figured out what my problem was. When I downloaded R8 for 1.82 off the maelstrom website for some reason somehow I got R6 for v 1.52 Instead. I now have the correct version installed and it runs beautifully. Well its a bit ugly because im using the recommended graphics settings, gonna try bumping them up a bit and see if it stays stable tomorow.
