GalacticCvi3LogoTEG has a new guide to making new graphics for your Galactic Civ 3 factions available. It explains the files, file sizes and file types needed to fully customise your factions appearance in game.

Check out the new Guide HERE.

 

NewsIconI have put some of the older content from Respawn, Mechstorm and TEG back online again to replace the Elder Scrolls and Fallout stuff that is no longer supported here. The Galactic Civ areas are currently empty but will soon be getting new content.

Also I am sure you have noticed but I have replaced the slide show above too, some slides may be replaced again when I get the time to make better ones.

Now TEG has moved from Elder Scrolls and Fallout games and their endless trolling, there will be more variety of news here at TEG again, I'll be talking about new games, early access games and so forth. So watch this space.

GalacticCvi3LogoTime to answer some of your questions about Galactic Civ 3.

First is it different from Galactic Civ 1 and 2, well let me put it this way. I thought Galactic Civ 1 and 2 should have been called Solar Civ because there was nothing Galactic about them. I come from the Amiga and we had games like this that where galactic. So PC games from the same genre really did not impress me. Until now only Stars! felt galactic in scale.

Galactic Civ 3 is Galactic... its map sizes are huge, so yes its better than Galactic Civ 1 and 2.

The trouble is the AIs are set up based on previous game experiences so Stardock really are having to fix things on the fly now giant maps are possible and its creating some interesting side effects for the AI, such as an AI that gets so powerful that its power'Ometre trips back to zero and suddenly AI thinks it is weak and pathetic and surrenders. An issue that probably was not possible on the smaller maps.

So there are some issues like that arising now the game is out that need fixing.

Another issue is the way a large empire can ship spam you, literally sending every ship it builds to one point in your empire, leaving you on full time intercept duty. Usually 1 AI goes crazy but the rest behave them selves. Again, a side effect of the much larger maps.

So there is a great deal of tweaking to do be done.

I have 91 hours in Galactic Civ 3 so far and I am really enjoying it, so I think the game is worth while. I have dozens of new X4 games and most bore the hell out of me. I have abour 3 in early access that will probably never get played because there is nothing original about them. But Galactic Civ 3 feels like a return to the Civilization 4 days when games where made for players with brains, not just players with a game pad.

I am sure many of you can relate to that having seen your games dumped down, and dumped down some more until you dont even have to aim at the bad guys anymore. It is the Witcher effect, close your eyes and press fire like crazy and when you open them again, you will have killed any baddies, any bosses and anything else in the area because actually playing the game is optional and often not actually supported in modern games. So Galactic Civ 3 is a nice return to old school games where gameplay is a requirement not an optional extra.

 

NewsIconIt is hard to trust players when many of them sneak in to TEG under false pretences to cause mischief.

I had some starting posts with "I know this is going to get me banned but"... which is a confession that they are about to break the site rules and do not care. Basically the sort of person TEG does not want on its anti troll forums. These have been moved to a special group with limited access and will be dealt with in due course. 

Others have said they are sorry to see me go, only I am not going anywhere, they are, now the mods are gone they are leaving. Which says they did not come here to join the guild in the first place. So their access has been limited to all ranks below Adapt.

The second the mods where removed, the naughty little boys and girls revealed them selves. Now I know who they are, I have dealt with them. I also purged 1500 acounts of users that did not want to be here. 

Auto promotion to Guild Master on the site has been disabled too. Now Guild Master is an invite only group very much like the Mechstorm Team group back in the Mechstorm days. All the cool stuff will be happening at this level now.
