This would be great. As a Birth of the Federation and Star Trek fan, i would love that.

Galaxy generation

I am curious about the options that will be available for the galaxy generation. Will there be different shapes? How many stars/planets will the different sizes have (biggest having 240 stars, right) ? I know you mentionned 4 different sizes.

Re: When can we expect some news?

Just wondering how you intend to make the galaxy feel "alive". Distant Worlds did a very good job there with plenty of civilian units flying around (similar to Imperium galactica 1) and space monsters etc). So what is your take? I did touch on this a bit in the Trade Topic , but yes you w...

Re: Leaders / staff

Fantastic. This is one of my favourite parts and can't wait to see this in place. Will there be also so kind of spying staff?

Re: Manual

Thanks. I can only speak for myself but the physical manual was on my bed table for many many years...i've read it in all possible directions. ;). The manual is indeed well done but the game is fairly complex as well. Of course, i am old school (born in 1971) and still have my physical manuals for M...

Music

Wondering what kind of music you're going to use for Horizon 2. Imho, music is very important to give the right mood. Background sound in Horizon 1 is ok but could be a little more diverse. I've found that Polaris Sector has an excellent soundrack for instance. Do you already have ideas? Some games ...

Manual

I think it's important to consider writting a large manual that covers and explains all the aspects of the game. I think that many did not understand everything in Horizon 1.

Leaders / staff

Will we get Leaders of staff to manage in the game? Horizon 1 has some kind of staff (colony leaders) but they don't have a portrait etc. Personaly, i'd love to have something like what was intended for MOO3 (also Pax Imperia) where you do actually have staff at most levels (planets, ships, ministri...

Modding

Wondering how much modding will be possible. I believe it should be possible to create a full Star Trek, Star Wars, BSG etc. mods for the game (races, ships and UI). So what will be possible (so far) for Horizon 2? I think the analysis from DasTactic about Interstellar about modding is interesting. ...

Re: Galactic Civilization 4 soon available (alpha)

It's just that i already have GOG and Steam....i still have a couple of games on gamersgate as well. It's just too many tools one has to install/reinstall every time you've got a new computer. I guess at some point i'll get more games on Epic as well (my son is playing Fortnite on it and i have Old ...

Re: Galactic Civilization 4 soon available (alpha)

Brad seems extremely open to ideas and is going to use everything that has been working on other games. It looks different enough from the privous games but keeps the same races etc. I am tempted to jump into the alpha for GalCiv4 but not too keen to pay through Epic Games. Of course, i'd much rathe...

Interesting. What do you have in mind with a minimalist UI?

Galactic Civilization 4 soon available (alpha)

Some heavy concurrence to Horizon 2 coming out next (additional to Distant Worlds 2). However, no tactical battles planned, which is good for Horizon 2.

Re: When can we expect some news?

Yes, we plan to support Horizon 2 for a very long time and that will most likely include DLC's and/or expansions. That's something we will decide post launch and we will also take into account what our community wants for new features. The Senate is one such possible feature as we won't have it in ...
