Brad Wardell's site for talking about the customization of Windows.

I'm setting up a game today to play on this day after Thanksgiving. Here are screenshots from the game (I'll be updating this over the course of the day):

Large galaxy with no tech brokering (a tech I trade to someone else can't be traded by that civilization to someone else).

I want to have few stars but those stars should have lots of good planets.

I set up a custom player.

Gave my custom player their own techs, abilities, look, ship style, etc.

 

image

Randomized opponents.

 

image

Home planet.

 

image
Starting location.

I don't like the Korath anymore..

When you see a bunch of these coming, that's bad.

Looks pretty good so far!

Is there *really* more to come?

on Nov 29, 2008

Yea.  Been a bit under the weather so I had to cut my play short.

Ugh! Large->Scattered->Nine opponents... Damn, I hate that setting combination, everything is all jumbled up and everyone's next to every one and it's all a tight (un)fit...

Eagerly awaiting to see how this one progresses...

Speaking of screenshots, is there a good way you all recommend taking screenshots while running Galciv in non-windowed mode?

Why?

I used to have issues with running it fullscreen, so now I just run it windowed @ desktop res.  And I haven't noticed a slowdown-in fact, it actually seems faster.  Not to mention I can alt tab out without crashing.

looks very very cool!!  I haven't tried Galatic Civilizations, but now i wonder why i missed it? Will download the demo and take a look, it looks very interesting. Thank you for posting this!

I dont know how you would do it, but i simply press "print" on my Keyboard when in game, alt-tab to Windows, open a program like paint and then press ctrl-v (or select "paste" in the menu).

Ctrl + PrintScreen key = a screenshot in your user's folder (i.e. C:/blablabla/my documents/my games/CG2... on XP)

If you are looking for a decent screen-capture program i would suggest reading the review over at Tech Support The site is definitely worth a look as the review the best of the free programs out there on the web in a non-biased way (they actually try them out first )

Most of the program allow you to take a screen capture which will then automatically save to a folder of your choice without having to alt-tab out.

When will the EU be able to download an update for Endless Universe? Will it always be like this regarding updates?

I was wondering what planetary map/improvements mod Frogboy is using... I've tried to look for something to change the look of improvements, but I haven't found anything so far.
