Galactic Civilizations III players can now 3D print their own ships in 1.2 update

Galactic Civ3 ships

Stardock have added a unique new feature to Galactic Civilizations III in the new 1.2 update. You can now order 3D prints of your custom starships, and have them delivered to your door. 

The game allows you to build your own ships, and now with a click of a button you can have them displayed on your own shelves in your actual house. A new button has been added to the interface that will redirect players to a website. The site evaluates your ship design, and as long as it passes a few standards checks, you can buy a 3D print of it.

The 1.2 update also adds the ability to share maps with the community that have been made in the game’s Map Generator. Along side this also comes the Mega Events DLC, which is free for Elite Founders users, or $4.99 for regular players.

“Mega Events,” says Galactic Civilizations III designer Paul Boyer, “are galactic events that shake up the game. You might be heading toward diplomatic victory when suddenly a leader is assassinated. Maybe you’re trying for a conquest victory when the Dread Lords return. Each event is an unexpected incident that will require your skill and strategy to overcome if you hope to be victorious. ”
