Default Stardrive, a 4X space strategy.

Has anyone tried it out yet? Was released yesterday but haven't been able to find any reviews yet. Thinking about picking it up since it is 10% off currently.

I find so many of these 4x games get the empire building part right but then fall on their faces when it comes to combat. We'll see what happens here.

I ended up buying and playing it for a short while. Still trying to figure out how to do things but it seems enjoyable if you like these types of strategy games.

EDIT: Haven't done combat yet so we will see.

I really like this game. Space combat is so much more interesting as the designs of your ships matter. I find that compartmentalizing capital ships are the best way to go. When your shields go down and your armor destroyed you want to make sure you don't set off a chain reaction explosion of your power plants. It is also recommended to use internal bulkheads around critical modules. Doing so can mean having a crippled capital ship make it home to be repaired or having it blow up as soon as a weapon gets past your armor.
