New ship parts... *gears in the "Ship Designing Department" of his brain start to rotate furiously*

Yes, I am looking forward to this as well. I have been enjoying this game for quite some time now. Thank you Brad, and thanks to the entire Galactic Civilizations III team. You guys are awesome!

New races, along with traits and other goodies, sounds great to me.  And I fully understand the reasoning behind using a few from SC:O, it makes complete sense to me.  I'm still wondering if we will ever get the Korath and Drath, as were once promised, before the decision for no more DLC came about.  Obviously, there is now more DLC.

Will you be posting the traits features of the new factions prior to release or information for each?  Thanks

Anybody knows Star Control: Origins well ? Which three races can be in DLC ?

Based on what has been said elsewhere, there are four races included.  The Mowlings (pictured above in the first post), the Mu'Kay, a friendly aquatic species, the Free Trandals, a race of fearsome looking creatures who were recently freed from an aggressive AI called Overmind, and the Tywom, a race of large slug-like creatures.

Thank you for your answer. Now I can find them.

Trandals look ok for GalCiv art style, but other three look a bit silly.

I don't know I kind of appreciate having a few more comical options.   I wouldn't mind seeing that Overmind AI added though, the game could use a few more synthetic races.

Awesome.  But I promised my self I wont buy anymore DLC's until ground and space battles are improved.

Hopefully next update.

As an avid player of Star Control Origins, I am now torn on what to play. Great job with the Gal Civ update!

Quoting AdamMG,

Stay tuned.

What about Korx ?

on Nov 28, 2018

Well, the Korx ship set is in the "Altarian Prophecies" DLC, so it's half done.
