One of the best ways we can improve the AI is to get more ship designs into the game that the AI can evaluate.

These should be ships with weapons, defenses, etc. already on them.

in your \documents\my games\galciv3\designs  you will find your ship designs.

What we are looking for are designs for the each race (Drengin, etc.).  No mods. 

We can then put these ship designs in with the main game and the AI will use them if they are better than the default ones (Which they...

Greetings!

This Fall Stardock began a major overhaul across the board of its community infrastructure.

The first update was of our WinCustomize.com customization site (www.wincustomize.com) to greatly speed it up.

The next update was to speed up our forums across all the Stardock community sites.

This past week, we launched the third major update: Forum community awards.  You will notice on people's posts that there are various little dots and awards by their names.  We...

Last month, CariElf, the lead developer of GalCiv I and II rejoined us.

Later this month, I rejoin the GalCiv III team.  In effect, it'll be a reunion of the GalCiv II team as we take the game to the next level.

But before we begin the series of GalCiv III updates that leads into the big expansion, let me offer you the same advice I've tried to give others here:

If you want to succeed, you must slay the three F's: Friends, Family, Faith.  

And in the spirit of t...

With Star Control: Origins announced, people are wondering who Stardock is and what we’re all about.  Many of you are already familiar with us but for those who aren’t, here’s a background.

Game History



When you read the comments on Stardock’s history we’re best known for our work on Galactic Civilizations and Sins of a Solar Empire.  You will also see some people mention Elemental which had a rough launch but came back with its sequel and expansion (which were given to...

Here's what's new…

According to the Steam data, 28% of our players are playing at below 1920x1080 and the text and such looks awful. Unreadable imo. We are updating how the the game is displaye...
