AWESOME! But when I try and launch it from Steam it says the game is not available at this time. I don't see that it is downloading anything at the moment, and I'm wondering if it needs to update, but I don't know how to do that. Any suggestions?

*EDIT* Uninstalled and reinstalled and it is working perfectly fine now!

I just noticed that all my custom maps are broke now. I have tried to load them in the new editor and it gives me a error. Also when trying to make a complete new map it will give an error upon save.

Not to be a pain, but I'm disappointed in the price.  I understand how cool this can be for addicted players (I've been there!  Do you know how much I'd have paid for a Diablo 2 expansion?) ...but for a casual guy who only plays Sins once a month this isn't really worthwhile. =\

is it going to use the same buggy ironclad online for multiplayer or can you create games doing invites through steam now?

I would love to play it but just keeps mini dumping on startup. Even after I deleted local content and re-downloaded. So kinda pissed.

I just preordered and finished downloading. I can't wait to give it a try. I do have a question though. Why the switch to steam instead of continuing to use Impulse/Gamestop like the previous SoaSE games?

In beta 2 (build v0.76) where is the GalaxyForge directory ?  only asking because there is no 'Mods-Rebellion v0.76' like there is for all previous versions.

The directory for all of that has been moved to "My Games" in "My Documents" instead of being in appData...
