There have been a lot of interesting fan ideas and thoughts for for new content and how to improve Galactic Civilizations 2.
I'm not going to add to that. I just want to see Galactic Civilizations 3 at some point.

I agree, and we will see it at some point. I would like to see it in 64 bit now that 64 bit OS is the norm, rahter than the exception.
I too want Galactic Civilizations 3.
That would be fantastic! Please let the ai protect their starbases with ships.
I'm fairly sure that GalCiv 3 will happen at some point. What I'm worried about is whether it will be Steam free or not. Given Stardock's recent trend in using Steam for their games (and nothing else), I fear that GalCiv 3 will require Steam.
I think next month is the anniversary of GalCiv, and Brad had said pretty much that a new game announcement is coming soon.
Also, the reasons SD went Steamworks are resource-related, so I don't expect that to change. (They said, doing FE Steamworks and non-Steamworks cost them a good bit of time, and Steam was the majority of sales, despite Stardock building up their base non-Steam for a decade)
Realistically, given the above- it's very reasonable to assume a GalCiv 3 announce within the next month, and that it will require Steamworks. I suspect you'll see more Steamworks integration from Stardock in GalCiv3 than you did with LH- and hopefully it allows for MP.
That's not a guarantee in any way though- I can be wrong, or Brad might change the order up just to make me wrong.
I'd buy GalCiv3 if it was offered steam-free...else I'm just as happy to play GalCiv2.
Trying to run LH with steam has been the most frustrating experiances I've ever had with a game. I've been tempted to go back to MoM so many times now...only thing keeping me here is that SD crew is being very open to community suggestions and new content.
I'm really not wild about Steam but so long as it is around to stay, you may as well bombard Balbe with suggestions to improve the sucker. Like a Library-only mode, so it's not hogging memory when all you want to do is play a game.
cannot tell if typo....or if the joke flew past me at hyperwarp III.
Demigod 2 is also coming.
But - gal civ 3 actually is.
Epic typo. *facepalm* Meant to say Valve.
Same here. I understand Stardock's reasons for going Steam-only, but that doesn't mean, that I have to like it, or support it.
Steam is not as bad as you all think.
as it is, I bypass it everytime I play it.
But... but then it doesn't clock up the number of hours you've played! You've got to look at that and scare yourself now and then.
Yes, but with less than 2Gbs of RAM, and a 1Ghz processor, Steam eats my system alive.
Well they are already working on Star Control since they got that IP. I doubt they would make two Sci-fi Strategy games at the same time. Hopefully I'm wrong.
I believe you are wrong In the future section Brad posted a pic of an updated looking Thalen (pretty sure I misspelled that).
Actually, working on two games of the same genre isn't a bad thing. It doesn't mean they ill release on the same sort of schedule.
doesn't stardock have sins and galciv already? They can do 2 at once if needed
They've probably been working on GalCiv 3 for months now. Star Control may not have even started yet.
Also, Brad said 5 years from Twilight would be about the right timeframe for GC3- it's been close to that.
They may have started working on Star Control before they got the license. I know when they started Elemental they were trying to get the rights to call it Master of Magic. Atari refused to sell the ip to them. Worst case scenario theywould rename it. The story from GalCiv campaign is an obvious reference to Star Control 2. The dread lords I believe is in reference to the end of Star Control 3. I might be wrong I havent finished the DL campaigns. I think with the Gal Civ 3 pic I might have to revisit it.
