Massive Starbase Update for GalCiv III is now available!

Too many Starbases, not enough time? No problem.

GalCiv III v1.7 Brings Starbase update to solve all your management problems!

We know that many of our fans love playing gigantic-sized maps over sprawling hours of game play. The new Starbase update brings several new features and tools for reducing micromanagement and increasing efficiency for those late-game long hauls. Check out some of the update's highlights:

Queue Upgrades Directly from Shipyards
Constructors are ordered from the Shipyard that can deliver the upgrade in the shortest amount of time and will now automatically travel to the Starbase.

Plan Your Battles...and Your Retreats
The new "Battle Assessment" feature allows you to hover your mouse over an enemy fleet to see an estimation of your fleet's victory against them.

Sort and Group your Ships with Ease
New options make it easier to find the ships you want when you want them. Mark your "favorite" ships so that you can snap right to them in a hurry!

Make Friends, Not Enemies
The update to diplomacy has made it so that your allies are more likely to give you a good deal on trades! Trade value will now scale based on the game's difficulty setting and your relationship with other factions.

Easily Access Starbase Modules and Effects Info
The "Starbase Window" displays more detailed statistics and will aid you in managing the Starbase and the rest of your empire.

Maximize a Colony's Potential
The new "Planetary Alert System" will warn you when your influence, population, or approval are holding your colony back.

...and more!


To check out the full list of changes for v1.7, see the official change log here.

Never the same game twice, Galactic Civilizations III is the largest strategy sandbox ever made. Each new game offers an array of options as you set it up - choose your map size, abundance of planets and resources, frequency of events, and more for a unique play experience every time. Galactic Civilizations III also removes linear victory conditions and offers you multiple objectives that you can choose to pursue in order to win, such as military conquest, cultural domination, technological ascension, or political alliances. The new multiplayer capabilities also allow you to expand your challenges and fights beyond an AI in order to face off against fellow players. All of this, topped with a rich and in-depth custom ship designer ensure an immersive and exciting experience as you decide how to rule your galaxy.

CORE FEATURES:

  • Never the same game twice: Play in the ultimate sandbox where each game has a unique map, worlds, and challenges to face -- all on a massive scale. Play against 16 to 100 opponents.
  • Multiple paths to victory: Win through military conquest, cultural domination, technological ascension, or political alliance.
  • Story-based campaign: Get brought up to date on the 20-year story arc behind the rise of humanity in the 23rd century.

  • Multiplayer: For the first time, Galactic Civilizations is a multiplayer game with full support for custom civilizations, saved multiplayer games, and much more.
  • New Battle System: Assign your ships specific roles to play in combat. You can now view fleet battles in a cinematic style to see your designs in action.
  • New Colony Manager: The location of a planetary improvement now matters. Adjacency bonuses and planetary resources make a major impact on what a planet is strong (or weak) at accomplishing.
  • Planetary Governors: Utilize individual planetary leaders to govern your worlds, deciding what improvements to build and when, which leaves you to focus on larger strategic goals.

Ohhh yes. More of the same is just fine by me. With better graphics (always nice), a ship designer that qualifies as an early 3D modeling software suite (assuming total control, yay!), more planets to settle (I call dibs on the jewel of the universe!), and gazillions of technologies to research (Universal translator? Nah, funnier without).

Oh, and the drengin are still annoying as hell, true to their nature.

Incidentally, gotta cut this short, I have some drengin to fry.

One more turn!

Buggy. Poor performance, and exceedingly high system demands. While the game boasts of its graphics, they're only relevant when zoomed in to a close-up view that's functionally useless. Mostly, the game is of a style popular in the 80s and 90s, with some added mini-games; there's no justification for the horsepower it demands to render simple graphics.

There's little documentation of the game options, inside the game or out.

Worst, AI enemies are almost totally passive. They simply turtle up and spam you with cheap unarmed ships.

The best feature of the game is the cut-scenes -- which isn't saying much.

This game is basically an un-optimized, early alpha quality game.

I got the game on Steam sale with all DLCs for less than what I paid for galciv2 and all DLC. Stop whining about how the DLC should have been part of the base game. This is how the industry works now.

In galciv2, half the game happened through DLC, too. You sell the game when it is a viable product, so you can recoup your cost making it. And then you add what the players want and make some more money when selling it as DLC. Games cost too much to "sell them when they are ready". You'll go bankrupt as a studio if you try.

galciv2 was a great game, and this one is even better. The AI feels less fickle to me this time around.
Building through the tech tree is great fun, and even watching the epic space battles is less boring than I thought. I have yet to use the ship designer, so no idea how awseome it is. But even without it the game is at least a 9/10 for me.

I love how the tech trees have personality for the different races, and how the other races attempt to guilt trip you into giving them free stuff.

Building colonies has become even more interesting than with galciv2 because now there are adjacency bonuses, and the star base bonuses are so strong that my current strategy is to build planets for maximized manufacturing and then build a space port and crank out constructors to build star bases around the planet. Only when that is done do I tear down all the manufacturing infrastructure on the planet and switch to research. And I'm still not sure I found the right strategy. That's how beautifully complex it is!

If you ever play Gal-Civ, you know you want it.
And it's a good one, with everything you want, and some more, not much, but all in an even more massive scale than before.

And multiplayer (I've not tried it yet, it's more like a solitary pleasure for now...) !

And more design & custom than ever before !

At 65 hours, I've started 3 campaigns, "just to taste the game"...

If you never played Gal-Civ before and want to rule the universe, go for it, what are you waiting for ??!

Conquer planets, design your fleet, command your scientists and crush your enemies !

Its a great game, I loved the second one when it fcame out years ago. my only complaint is the graphics during the planet managing screens don't seem like they've seen much love. The different upgrades are still represented by flat, boring 2d sprites. other then that an A plus game worth your time.

Okay, first of all, this is a fairly good game. However, there are balancing issues, and ai exploits. One of such is you build a shipyard, and the one with the most manufacturing, the AI will go for, so you just keep switching back and forth between them. Secondly, this game quits on you from time to time which can be incredibly frustrating, but I've noticed that hasn't happened in quite a while. Also, with the ship building parts selector, I can't figure out how to turn the model and it seems they took out this feature, which is annoying because I can't see if my ship models look cool all around. There are many tweaks however to the overall system that are much better in this than Galactic Civ 2 and its expansions, I was however hoping that all of the previous game ship building parts would be included in this one, which they are not. I like that you can still trade ships in the steam workshop though, and I've made some cool looking ones. As for the campaign I am disappointed with the minimalist three mission campaign, but I like that your tech stays with you when you move onto the next mission. However, because of the way the tech tree is it makes it incredibly difficult if you are a non militaristic race against a Militaristic race, because of how slow the tech advances and this needs slight tweaks to make it more fair. I'm sick of being the Humans and getting absolutely decimated by the stupid Krynn that automatically get huge hulls by the 100th turn. THe graphics are very good though, and the ship battles are fun to watch, but it would be a bit cooler if it were more like homeworld style battles where you could out manuver your enemies and such. I give this game a 6.5 out of ten, and it is worth playing.

I bought this game on steam sale for around $15 (14. and something something). This is an extremely addicting game. I love the expansive-ness of the maps and the diverse races. You even can make your own custom race which I have. Some of the matches/games can take up to weeks to finish depending on diffculty and map size which is amazing. I love Galactic Civilizations 3 andi hope they add more into the game in the future. *Also hoping that the Galactic Civilizations series will continue*

My rating from 1-10 would be 9/10. There are small things that kinda pushed the game back a little bit such as the pricy dlcs . But honesty i wouldn't worry about that as the base game has a insane amount of content already. The Dlc is like only extra sauce for the game.

*Edit* I plan on sinking at least a couple thousand hours into the game.

Fun game, but if you came from galactic civ 2 don't expect extra content, it feels pretty much the same, and requires expensive dlc to fully complete the game.

The game is really fun and anjoyable, Took me a bit to understand at first but once I did I had tons of fun! I suggest for your gameplay to make your own custom races to battle against. It's quite fun,And beware the space templars BEWARE.

A wonderful strategy game. Where it gets caught up, is that there is no general feeling of space. In other words, it's all 2 dimensional. In that sense, we never have a full understanding of where we are in space, relative to other races. This needs to be rendered in 3D. There really is no explanation for why it hasn't been done yet.
Planets, ships, stars, all are reduced to an array of dots. Each planet seems no different from any other. You might settle a level 26 planet and it looks the same as a level 12. There needs to be better differentiation between planets.
Likewise, you may encounter an alien race, but you're not snapped t0 the action and therefore have no sense from where the alien came from. But it remains true to its origin. I just think Masters of Orion did it all better.

Let me start out by saying there are things I really love about this game. The graphics are amazing, there are lots and lots of choices for you to do to really personalize the civilizations you create and in general it's an overall fun game. Keep in mind that I did NOT play any of the games previously and I bought the game on sale with all of its DLC for $26. Had I paid more than that for the game, I think I would be more upset than I am.

The game is like Civ 5 in space, though with far more options. I love Civ games, so this was right up my alley. However, the bullsh*t from the AI is enough to make me want to punch a hole through the monitor.

Like Civ 5 you have a galactic council that forms when all the members are present. Wanting to start out small I played a 1v1 against a random computer civ. While I found him first, it was HIS civ that got the final say in a tie, which meant I was constantly screwed. When I had a butttload of money, he put up a bill that would take 24% of my money away and give it to him. "Redistribution" they call it. I said no, they said yes and my ♥♥♥♥ was gone. In 3 hours of play they did this to me 4 times.

Then, while my civ was larger and pushed out more of everything than the other side did, his property edge started overtaking mine, stealing resources and worlds without him doing a thing. So I got ♥♥♥♥♥♥ and built up a huge army and went to attack him and got the message "You cannot attack him for another 50 rounds."

50 F*CKING ROUNDS?!

I put 11 hours of work into that civ only to have it torn uot from underneath me through bullcrap, sneaky ways that totally killed any fun I was having in the game. I thinki if I EVER play it again, I'm going to play it alone, without any other civs in it. Then it might actually be enjoyable.

In and of itself, I would narrowly consider this a good game.

However, I write to note that when compared with Gal Civ II, which I played extensively, there seems to be little more in GCIII than an updated UI and cleaner graphics. One must buy a dlc to unlock 2 of the major races that were originally in II. I followed the emails and other updates during development, and also participated in the beta, and I feel that GCIII is more of a cash cow than anything else. There was a ship designer in GCII; they emphasized that it would be improved in III before release, but it is almost identical to that of GCII.

This game is worth $40 only if they gave you all the dlc; buy it on sale, or from a cdkey site for a discount. Otherwise, enjoy GCII which feels more realistic and balanced in terms of AI behavior. It's amazing how they can make $50 of dlc for a $40 dollar update of GCII.

I leave with this: is it fun? Yes. Is it more fun than GCII? Not really. If you enjoy masochistically having your wallet ransacked, this is your opportunity. I have liked Stardock in the past, especially with Sins of a Solar Empire, among other games. They, unfortunately, now resemble EA or Activision.

I got this game because GalCiv2 is one of my all time favorite games. I thought this would be more awesomeness with a better updated skin, but unfortunately it's not. Of course I picked up GalCiv2 after Anor, so maybe I'm used to something more mature?

Pros- This game looks great. The graphics don't disappoint, the ships and effects are awesome. Building your own ships is a lot of fun and some of the ships on the workshop are amazing. The new planitary setup where adjacency matters makes for more thoughtful colony decision making. Creating you own faction also has a lot of fun options to try.

Cons- I really don't like having to setup the same treaty (open borders, exploration, etc) every 50 turns. Having to babysit diplomacy, while possibly realistic, is not something I enjoy in a game. The AI is also illigical to put it mildly. Factions constantly beg you for free stuff (tech or money), then you suffer a diplomatic penalty with them if you don't give it to them. How is that a good idea?

Anyway I was stoked for this game and was disapointed. Maybe it'll be better in the future, but right now I cant recommend.

If you liked GALCIV 2, play that instead.

Fact is, they are playing the same game that Maxis has with the Sims: release the same game with better graphics and dumbed down gameplay, then sell expansions that basically just add in some of the features from the previous games' expansions.

The AI is dumb, the gameplay is dumbed down, there are fewer races and special events, there's no choosing a government now, you just upgrade to a better form over time.

It's still a fun game, I guess, but the fact that I really wanted to play a space game and couldn't find the email/password to my old stardock account is probably the only reason I got so much mileage out of it.

Don't buy it unless it's on sale.

Do yourself a favor and get Gal Civ II. You will get more bang for your buck with a complete experience. Avoid this cash cow designed to milk the name of the franchise till it dries out. Releasing content that should be in the game, as overpriced DLCs.

I played the hell out of GalCiv2. Then, much more recently, I wanted a fix of GalCiv-like 4X gameplay, and picked up Endless Space to hold me over unti GalCiv3. And proceeded to play the hell out of it.

I was really excited when GalCiv3 finally dropped. But half an hour into playing it, I realized something surprising: I like Endless Space a whole lot better. Endless Space feels more like "real" galaxy exploration instead of moving tokens on a gameboard. The discoveries and events feel more story-like, wheras in GalCiv3 they just feel like excuses to click through and get resources. The graphics in Endless Space are far more beautiful, and the music is far better.

The truth is, for me Endless Space IS GalCiv3. And GalCiv3 is... well, it's GalCiv2 Remastered. I've gone back to playing Endless Space, and I'm looking forward to the sequel.

To be fair, GalCiv III had some isses at the start as most games do these days unfortunately. It has progressed though, through a steady stream of updates and DLC's. As it is now, I think it is pretty good. There is nothing that really sets it apart from its predecessor really aside from better graphics, and a few minor updates. Its a safe bet if you like II.

As a side note, I did buy Stellaris, and decided to shelve that until it gets updated after playing a couple of games. I came back to GalCiv III after a long break, and I am currently enjoying it.

My first small review of this game was negative. Mostly because I never played in this game series. So, it was difficult to start without reading a manual.

But after I read a manual I can see - it is quite a nice and exciting game.

So, I recommend this game. Thank you to developers team and sorry for my first negative review.

I played the first two gal civ games for quite some time. This third one seems get the balance between micromanaging and the fun of 4x games just about right. I do kind of miss the galactic news reports from the previous games, some of those were hilarious. The tech tree can be a little overwhelming for those of us that like to research everything but now it acts more like a tool for customizing your game play style. Over all I recommend this game to anyone that liked the previous iterations of the game or that likes 4x games in general. I came to the party late so didn't get to experience the world wheel for each colony but I think it was ultimately a good thing they got rid of it. The focus buttons make life easier for those of us that like some micromanagement but aren't compulsive about it.

While I miss the lovely battle scenes of the second game, Galagtic Civ III definitely ramped up the gameplay with new ship modules, more stuff to place into a custom race, and the United Planets aspect of things. I have nothing to say on the multiplayer, though. Haven't tried it.

As a owner of all the olders Galactic Civilizations I figured jumping into this one would be easy but nope had a lot of new things to learn about this edition and version of the game franchise.

While I did get all of the add on packs for it I think more could have been in them and the game in the way or races, battle strageties and even seeing the take over ground battles on the planets like the intro video shows. It's a turn based game with little live action or cut scene videos that is basicly an upgrade to all of the old versions of the game.

I'm not a huge fan of Multiplayer on-line gaming so playing it single player the AI's are predictable over time in attitudes and intent and easy to figure out who you can be friends with and who will always end up and enemy.

If you do not create on your own new verion builds of ships as you gain the tech in reaserch all of your ships become obsolite and quickly end up defeated with the AI's increasing abilities.

While I have been a firm suporter and owner of StarDock games this is the last version of this Title I will invest in. If I had never owned or played the older ones I would be fine so first time owners and buyers chances are you will enjoy it if you are not a live action game fan and more a strategest.

I do like a good 4Xing from time to time, and when I do, Galactic Civilisations 3 (GC3) fills that hole for me. This is important because I have the following options to satiate my need for space empiring: Endless Space, Sins of a Solar Empire: Revellion and Homeworld. If I had to choose between the 3, I would choose GC3, followed by Endless Space.

My main gripe with GC3 is the lack of species to choose from. I feel like the devs spent this time on developing and integrating modding tools into the game to allow anyone to create their own civs very easily. Creating your own civ involves having some artwork, selecting/creating some ship designs, writing some fiction and ultimately filling in survey with a lot of tickboxes to determine the AI's behaviour and the advantages of the species - and perhaps because of how easy they've made it, I find it irritating that they couldn't have added many many more species. There are around 5 species in the vanilla version. I think the mercenaries DLC adds two species.

The range of ships also suffers from a lack of content but not to the same level - I am less upset about this however as the ship editor is excellent and there are some modders who have created impressive forgeries of licensed ships such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Games Workshop and BattleStar Galactica. Civilisations from these licenses are also available but this content is far less impressive and none of it comes close to the quality of vanilla content.

Galactic Civilizations 3 is pretty good as far as 4X space games go. However it's more akin to games like Civilization 5, Age of Wonders and Endless Legend then it is to other space 4X games like Endless Space and Space Empires. This is not necessarily a bad thing however, and as the quality of what is there is so high I end up playing GC3 over it's competitors anyway.

Overall I would recommend the game at 20 NZD which is ~ 30 USD.

With the sale at the same $10-$15 GET IT NOW. If you likes GalCiv 2 then you'll like GalCiv3. Not much has changed other than the graphics which are massively updated, the map size is now mind bogglingly huge and the modding is fantastic. Building on planets is far more tactical now as adjacency matters big time. The battles however fall short of the huge ones youre used to in GalCiv2, and the AI seems dumb as hell sometimes. Make sure you turn off conquest as a victory condition otherwise every game seems to be a rush to invade and ignore all the other techs. Military starbases seem utterly useless as all they do is slow enemy travel unless they decide to attack it directly. Economic starbases are the way forward with the ability to put 5 or 6 per planet for HUGE boosts in industry.

Get it on sale, as I paid nearly $75 for it plus all the DLC and I dont think it's worth that price. But overall I would recommend if you enjoyed GalCiv2.

What I like - The workshop is going to make this game really great eventually

What I dislike - I cant think of a single thing that is different from Galactic Civ II, which I played hundreds of hours. It looks the same, plays the same, research is the same. Maybe the campaign is different but who plays that anyway? Its all about the custom game.

I would only recommend this game to new comers when its on budget as it could be disappointing on first look, it takes hard hard work to become compentent at this game.

It's a pretty standard 4x space game. If you've played one before you know what to expect, bbut where his game really shines is in it's ability to customise your own ships and space stations. While other games let you do this as well, you were severely limited in what you could do and many times your tweaks were either merely cosmetic or only affected the stats of a pre existing model. In this game you can build it from the ground up and every bit of equipment has it's own model. It's like building in Kerbal Space with offensive weaponry.

Did not enjoy this one, played GCII for many many hours but only burned a few on this - upgraded grahpics but worse diplomacy and AI version of the same game. Could not bring myself to play it any more than a few hours.

Back in the day GCII was unrivaled but there are way better 4X games out there now. Save your money and buy one of those.

I bought this game as a fan of turn based strategy games looking for something different. I've played through a few games and overall I think I got bored of it pretty quickly.

I think this is one of those games where if you want to put 100 hours into a round and customize your ships to the nth degree, it could be fun. But for those without all day long to spend micro designing your fleets, it's quite a grind.

Here's my major gripes:

1) The culture aspect is super unbalanced. You can win the whole game by just playing super defensive and focus heavily on spreading your culture. You can turn planets to your own side by doing nothing.

2) Some aspects of the game just aren't useful for anything. I.E., military starbases. They're purely defensive, and they don't even get involved in a battle unless the enemy specifically attacks them. It would make way more sense if they provided defensive coverage in a "zone".

3) They spent time creating some visuals for space battles. You see them in the screenshots for the game. They add absolutely nothing to the overall content of the game. Yeah its kind of fun to watch it like twice, but then you just end up turning all of it off because it takes a long time for the game to have a "space battle" that had an outcome calculated before the battle started. Should have spent that dev time adding other cool things.

4) Diplomacy AI is weak. To be fair, almost no game gets this right.

I'm a big fan of Gal Civ 2 and when I saw that they made a new one with I was very excited. From the screen shots it looked very pretty and I particulary like the hex maps. Unfortunately playing the game is a lesson in frustration.

Right from the start, even with habital planets set to abbundant the nearest dozen starts to my starting location have no useable planets. When I finally can reach the other civs territory they have a lot of planets. This of course has a massive effect as the game progresses. They are able to get a lot of planets right out of the gate, which means they get a big boost to every stat. Looking at the graphs, all of mine have very little growth and theirs sky rocket.

Oh and let's talk about how civs will go hostile to you for no reason and reguardless of what your diplomacy is.

This wasn't just one game, this is every game. I've restarted several dozen times and it's the same story every time. I've tried changing the settings from the start and same results. I can only conclude that either I'm unlucky in the extreme or this sort of thing is done on purpose.

I'm going to unload the game for now and wait for another update and see if anything changes. For myself this game is just to broken to play and there is no way I'll spend any more money on expansions in the hopes that they somehow compensate. Very disapointed.

As a big fan of Galactic Civilizations 2, I came into GalCiv3 with the understanding that it was going to be very similar. That is fine, in this case, because similar to "good" is likely to be "good".

The biggest issue with GalCiv3 is that some of the information is simply missing. It could very well be that it is available and I don't know how to access it, but if so, even that is a problem.

I enjoy the game, and happily play it while at the same time hoping for a more complete version.

The game is really fun and anjoyable, Took me a bit to understand at first but once I did I had tons of fun! I suggest for your gameplay to make your own custom races to battle against. It's quite fun,And beware the space templars BEWARE.
