Default Sins of a Solar Empire.

So, have any of you ever played this game? I really like it and it is the one game I have had for more than a year and been able to play on a daily basis without getting bored of it for hours.

So, if anyone has played this game here, with or without mods, what did you think of it?

And btw, it is an RTS 4X mass strategy game for those of you who do not know about it.

No, it can be done at either micro or macro or both.

It does take skill, I'll give you that. But it's very possible to beat the computer.

Glad you like it. I agree it takes time, but it's fun. I like the Empire (Star Wars) and The Dark (Powerful Vassari). I still have yet to get the expansion, but it sounds awesome.
