Version 1.3.6 Released (Summer Update)!

With the summer sale coming soon, here's an update for Unending Galaxy. Nothing fancy, but it integrates the Nilith Rebalance mod and fix any user interface problem tied to unarmed ships. It's also fixing a few rough edges and minor issues.

Mods from older versions should be compatible. Save-games should work too, but Nilith ships stats might be inconsistent and only newly spawned ships will get the new statistics.

If you're using the Nilith Rebalance mod, you can disable it now


  • Nilith Faction Overall: ships are much faster. cargo ship is unarmed but carry (and produce) drones. All Nilith ships regenerate hull.
  • Double clicking a fleet in the top-left list (or double tapping the assigned number key) will center the galactic map on the correct location
  • Increased detection range for cargo delivery mission success check, forced check when "talking" to the station to avoid misunderstandings
  • Updated AI Core and Organic tech trees' description
  • More informative "New Game" menu tool-tips (fow, warpgate, visibility... settings)
  • Pilot info in the "Ship Settings" menu shows which AI module the ship is running (if any)
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed: Crackling engine sound when camera is "following" a docked ship
  • Fixed: Multiple menu related issues on ships with no shield or no weapon slots.
  • Fixed: A few typos

Version 1.3.5 Released!

This is, most likely, the final update for Unending Galaxy. It contains a potential fix for the "sound degradation over time" bug some of you are experiencing alongside minor improvements. As usual, mods and saves from previous versions are compatible.


  • No longer need to left click then right click weapons and shield in the trade menu to display the proper info/stats popup
  • More detailed info panel for each ship module
  • Minor changes to the TC/Core plot-line (good/bad endings more likely)

  • New method used to play sound and music
  • Slightly better performances in situations with a lot of sound being played at once (large battles)

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed: Regression bug in 1.3.2 causing weapon/shield info popup to trigger an error message
  • Fixed: Missing text in the TC/Core plot-line (reward location)
  • Possible fix for the sound quality degradation over time

“Despite all this ambition and the uncharted territory, Unending Galaxy is easily one of the best 4X games I’ve played in a while.”
4/5 – Without The Sarcasm
