Galactic Civilizations v.1.0


Galactic Civilizations 1.0 is a fun to play game which offers a great storyline and beautiful graphic. It is actually a space-based strategy game set near the dawn of the 23rd century. As the leader of humankind, you must expand civilization into a hostile galaxy filled with alien empires bent on galactic domination. The game has a heavy emphasis on diplomacy, economics, and culture, as well as military generalship. Galactic Civilizations won Editor's Choice awards from Computer Gaming World and Computer Games magazines. Transportation between different outposts was done through star-gates. These star-gates were immense structures that were obscenely expensive to use and maintain. As a result, the civilizations actually have had very limited contact with one another (and none with humans obviously). Once human scientists understood the concept of star-gates and how they worked, they set on a course to try and improve on them. About a decade before the start of the game, these scientists introduce to the galaxy a new technology called "Hyper-drive." Humans by the 22nd century had concluded that any civilization capable of interstellar travel must certainly have long since grown out of their violent militaristic stage and one of the leading scientists involved with the project shared the design of hyper-drive with all five of the major alien civilizations. Almost instantly, communication with the other civilizations came to a halt. After months of silence, the government of United Earth came to the conclusion that hyper-drive would allow the colonization of the galaxy and what was likely to occur was a race to claim star systems that contained habitable planets. It was decided that Earth must not fall behind and the design for a colony ship developed. This brings us to 2178, the beginning of the era known as "Galactic Civilizations." The first colony ship has been created along with a survey ship to explore the numerous anomalies throughout the galaxy. Now the race is on to find and colonize unclaimed star systems with good planets (class 15 or better), find and claim galactic resources (by building constructors that can then build star bases on them), and ensure humanity can survive in a potentially hostile galaxy.
