Also have you been able to actually play a ship successfully for a little while? Another Mint user is having some issues.
I will probably port Din's Curse to Linux.
Mint uses the same repos as Ubuntu, so the package is there, although this is not the full implentation of s3tc (legal reasons), full (and thus faster) one is in package libtxc-dxtn0 but it is not in main repos it's in PPA: xorg-edgers
I was able to play the game with no problems, flying around etc. Obviously did not play for a long time yet, but so far absolutely no stability issues.
Oh, and - wonderful news about Din's Curse, that's probably my favourite game so far
