Гра з дочасним доступом

Отримайте доступ і відразу почніть грати, беручи участь у процесі розробки.

Увага: ця гра з дочасним доступом не дороблена, і надалі може як істотно змінюватися, так і ні. Якщо вам не дуже кортить зіграти у неї в її поточному стані, то радше зачекайте, доки гра не прийме більш завершений вигляд. Дізнайтеся більше тут

Що бажають сказати розробники:

Чому дочасний доступ?

“Stardock has always believed in extensive pre-release testing periods for our games. Involving our fans earlier in the process allows us to gather crucial gameplay, design, and balance feedback. Getting the game out on thousands of machines is a key part of hardware compatibility testing for us as well.”

Приблизно, як довго гра буде у дочасному доступі?

“Galactic Civilizations III will be in Early Access until April 2015, according to our current schedule (which is of course subject to change). During the beta, Galactic Civilizations is available for $44.99, five dollars off its regular $49.99 price.”

Чим повна версія гри буде відрізнятись від версії для дочасного доступу?

“Currently, the beta is fun but incomplete. We’re still adding in major gameplay systems – diplomacy, trade, and the United Planets should be added in October with the combat viewer scheduled to follow later this year. Four more races will join the beta as time goes on as well. Plus things like polish and balance, of course, as we go along.”

Який поточний стан версії для дочасного доступу?

“Multiplayer is fully functional. Core gameplay systems work. AI is pretty dumb by 2014 standards. Half the races aren’t in the game yet, nor are diplomacy, trade, the United Planets, or the combat viewer.”

Чи буде відрізнятись ціна гри на протязі дочасного доступу та після його завершення?

“Galactic Civilizations III is $5 off during Early Access.”

Як ви плануєте залучати спільноту до розробки гри?

“We’ve already gotten a ton of valuable feedback from our community, both on design/gameplay issues as well as help in tracking down bugs. We actively monitor the forums both on Steam and at http://www.galciv3.com, and we do weekly livestreams at http://www.twitch.tv/stardock where lead designer Paul Boyer shows off internal builds and answers community questions as well as soliciting feedback on specific design points that we’re actively working on.”

FAQ
Can–
Let me stop you right there and suggest that you read the rules of the contest. Many of your questions are answered there.

Is the contest open to non-US residents?
Yes, though every entrant is responsible for knowing the laws of the jurisdiction where they live. All offers void where prohibited.

Can I submit multiple ships?
Yes, but we reserve the right to be annoyed if you spam us, which probably won’t help your chances of being selected. Probably try to stay under five submissions.

Can I submit a ship I designed a while back and posted to the official forums/Steam community?
Sure, any Galactic Civilizations III ship qualifies.

Can I submit a ship made in the Galactic Civilizations II editor?
No. Only ships that can be successfully imported into Galactic Civilizations III are eligible.

I missed the submission deadline. Will you consider my ship, pretty please?
Nope, sorry.

I have another question that isn’t answered here.
If it truly isn’t answered in the rules (it probably is), ask it here or by tweeting @stardock.

Well as a player of the older Galactic Civilizations games i can say im liking the way this is looking. Though i do have to agree that right now its still an alpha. Many of the features havent been implemented and a decent amount of the UI is still greyed out. For now i give it a thumbs up.

I tried out Gal Civ 2 first when it was deeply discounted after seeing the demo of Gal Civ 3. As many are saying there are a lot of features that seem unfinshed and many of the tech tree options are still unfinished preventing some aspects of the game from being fully reailzed. I would consider it Beta not Alpha because you can play the game to learn the basics and there are many techs to explore. The ai can also easliy beat you if you make mistakes in choices.

I would say the early price was a bit high but again I purchased it at a slight discount.

One of the things that really affects your game overall is something I noticed in the last couple of games. The ships do not always move every turn while I am sure the ai ships do every turn. I have noticed that at times if you do not monitor and move some ships manually they will not move every turn on a pretedermined path set by you.

As well unless I missed it there needs to be some sort of notification when a construction vessel arrives at a starbase. I may have missed the quick way to check it but on a huge map tracking every ship and having to check every starbase for potential upgrades gets annoying.

The ship movement issue is not a Gal Civ issue alone. There are other games that I own that have similar issues but use different game engines. Hopefully it will be resolved.

Overall I would say it is a worthwhile game that looks just like Gal Civ 2 with added features that in time if the MP works well will make this a game worth having.

((Game still in Beta))

So far the management system is looking rather good. I like how the next button does not show up if you have an idle ship, planet, research, or space dock. At first I was not sure about it, but now I find that it’s actually rather helpful, to let me know if I have a ship I forgot and its doing nothing. So good job on that.

About the diplomatic system. I think its not complete. There was one bill that came in to abolish all current wars, and everyone voted yes, but the 2 wars I was in was not abolished and I was still being attacked. Also there was an election for the chair and the two races I was at war with voted for me. That kinda seems odd, I thought they would vote against me. So perhaps the AI needs some tweaking.

The Difficulty. Maybe the difficulty settings are not complete, but I was playing on the easiest that it allows, and I still found it to be a bit hard. I am a casual gamer. In Galactic Civilizations II, there was a good range of difficulty, the where even some settings that where too easy for me, and some that are too hard. But in GC III, the lowest setting is a bit too hard for a low setting, so I hope even lower, and perhaps higher settings will come in eventually.

I have noticed sometimes while I am in the manage dialogue box for a planet, and hover over a bonus slot, the details are not completely readable due to the box not being big enough.

There is one thing I am hoping that would be added. Galactic Civilizations II for me was nearly a perfect game. It had so many propertys that where awesome about it. but there was one downfall in my opinion. The combat system. Its okay being able to see the battle conspire, but it was still a bit lame. I hope that in Galactic Civilizations III there would be a combat system similar to Star Wars Empire at War. Being able to command the ships you build in battle would greatly take this game to the next level. And I am sure many would agree.

I am playing Diplomacy Beta right now. It is pretty good. I have some non-critical issues with UI layout, but have had only one crash. The game of course is lacking polish, but I see a serious 4x game here.

This game is obviously still in Beta - but it's quite rough with hang ups to be expected every couple hours or so. Fortunately the auto-save feature loads your game right up and you can continue.

I'm still trying to figure out how this game is any different than previous installments in the series. If anyone knows feel free to comment - but at the moment it's just a broken version of previous entries.

BUY NOW, PLAY LATER!
IGNORE ALL THE HATERS!

Early Access game and therefore not complete, but what is in it at the moment works and works well.
There's also little mystery as to what they intend to present as a final product here because all of the options etc. that will be included later show in the menus but are unable to be used. This counts for races (3 at the moment) and various gameplay elements (certain technologies etc.) which are yet to be included.

Despite the lacking features, what is already in this game makes it very easy to recommend if you are even remotely a fan of strategy,4X and/or space based games.
Already this is far superior to Sins of a Solar Empire (also by Stardock) which itself was well received although I personally had a hard time actually wanting to play.

The price will likely rise after full release too, so it's definitely worth picking up now. Especially so if you can get it from a serial key site with an added discount.

Completed game for first time on easy and won a conquest against AI. after a couple of false starts. As the game is far from complete I found it interesting to work out for myself what worked and what did not. I still could not figure out what the horintal bar was for, when governing the planet. Sometimes it did something other times it didn't so I left it alone. The map is fall of uninhabital planets, which seem pointless unless in the future you can turn them into habital, maybe theres a tech to change that, if so I never got that far. Also loads of asteroids and other stuff that did not do anything but just got in the way. Once I got the planets set up on auto upgrade, I could basically leave them alone and concentrate on other things. The explorer and survey ships were soon made obsolete once all the objects of interest were found. The tech tree is quite formidable and complicated I ended up continually pressing the turn button to get to the next level. The game begins to get better when you start to get decent spaceships. The biggest disappointments were that there are no iminent warnings of attack, both for ships and planets. When conflicts took place a label appeared saying a battle was taking place, If it was the AI, one of your ships had been killed somewhere ???. If it was you attacking it will show up as flashing. There did not seem to be any indication of how many turns it would take to kill a ship or take over a planet, the battles were all over in one turn, no chance to make a run for it. One of the things I had noticed that was missing was a spy ship. Maybe that will come later too like many other things. I hope that the design of a ship will come at the begining of the game, this would allow you to aim for a specific part of the Tech tree for it's use. I will not recommend this game at the moment as it is unfinished.

Tries to tout the depth of Endless Space but does nothing to resolve the issues from GALCIV II. It's an ok game, but absolutely not worth the already premium price.

Huge buyer's remorse.

I was a huge fan of the second Galactic Civ's game, so this is hard for me to say. This game is horribly incomplete, lacking numerous components that make up a complete game. It is certainly still in alpha stages, not beta stages and so there are numerous glitches and bugs that disrupt gameplay. I would suggest waiting to purchase this until the game is complete. I am very excited for its completion, but until that point, i will be giving it a thumbs down.

As a long term GC2 player who goes back year after year to play GC2, I thought I just had to get this game. Well I didn't and I dont like it, I dont like it one bit. If you want to be a beta tester then sure, get this game. If you think you are getting a game like GC2 only better - WAIT. It might get better it might not. Civ5 NEVER got better, purchased and played about 5 times. HATED IT, and now I go back and play older version of Civ. And I can see GC3 going the same way. Why didn't they just do a GC2 EE. I love Baldurs Gate EE. There is not a game released in the last 10 years which comes close to being as good as Baldurs. Now I to wait another 5 years till someone comes up with a decent game - Bugger!

OK - have to update this DO NOT BUY GC3 UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. It has a huge bug which makes the game worthless. Every game I have played of GC3 the UN votes to stop expansion. You cannot colonize any more planets ANYWHERE.

WHAT is the point of any Civ game where you are prohibited from expanding. I get about 4 or 5 planets and then it is literally GAME OVER.

And to think I paid for this game - jokes on me!
