2.2 gigs of memory?
My laptop I'm using has 2 gigs of memory (i know thats crappy) but I was playing today, and the game got super crazy slow once launching my ship... and i had to ctrl/alt/del to shut it down... and saw the game was using 2.2 gb memory... is this a memory leak or bug? or i that how this game is gonna roll?

how big was the ship you made? if you're using too many large ship pieces it can slow right down.

Probably debug code

I made a ship with a cockpit, 1 hull, like 20 of the same turret and like 4 or 5 engines? i dont remember exactly but i think i created the universe with like 40 sectors and 8 or 10 factions or whatever... maybe that had something to do with it? Its really odd... ive pretty much repeated the situation on a different save and it seems ok but if i go back to that one its crazy pointless... maybe i just did something dumb... oh ya and maybe this has an effect on it but i had forgotton to add subsystems to the ship... so it like didnt move or nothing... no idear if that affects it...

According to the store page, 2gb is the minimum for this game with 4gb being recommended.
I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that means "anything between 2gb and 4gb or above should run the game stable".

When one of my sticks kicked the bucket and I was left with 2gb, I couldn't play BF2 without running out of memory at some point. A large chunk of your memory will be taken by the OS, anyway - so that doesn't leave much for your entertainment, but I digress, and your OS might not have as much bloat as mine does.

ya im on windows 7 with a pretty fresh install so im not too bloated... but ya i did some experiments and seems only that one game hogs memory with no apparent reason... I play alot of games that say 2+ gig recommened etc, with little trouble... but this is an alpha nand not yet streamlined...

2.2 GB memory? o_O Even those AAAs I consider as 'bloat' don't take that much memory. I'll come back later to check when the game's been optimized. As it stands, I pass the current sale.
