Galactic Civilizations 3 - Star Control Mod

This is almost if not a total conversion mod of Stardock's Galactic Civilizations III based on Star Control game series.

Mod support structure can be viewed in this thread and also in the ModdingReadme.txt under <Window's user folder>/Documents/My Games/GalCiv3/Mods/

Mod's discussion thread -


Block type error in the latest GalCiv 3 version. Why? Game's log doesn't say and Stardock are too busy launching Star Control Origins on 20th of September to help debugging.

All races added, but lacks aesthetic assets, balance between Ur-Quan races(Kzer-Za using carriers), balance within non-Ur-Quan races, Sa-Matra, textual information.

Implemented features:

  • All races with their own graphical assets. No unique ship styles though.
  • Star systems for all race homeworlds.
  • All Star Control planetary traits as listed Ultronomicon wikia -
  • Slave Shields, by having the three races have unique civilization capitals, see issue #4
  • Arilou's starless Falayalaralfali and experimentation of moving the planet using wormholes, for more see issue #21

Current version: 0.0.9 Pre-Alpha

Star Control 2 scenario (not implemented)

Ur-Quan Kzer-Za and Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah are at permanent war with each other, termed the second Doctrinal Conflict. While the last war was won by the Kzer-Za using the Sa-Matra battle platform, in this war the Kzer-Za avoid using it or even its Battle Thralls. Most likely outcome is victory by the Kohr-Ah, though neither outcome is desireable to other races.

Sa-Matra is owned by Ur-Quan Kzer-Za and is unable to move until Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah are defeated.

Both Ur-Quan subraces would not attend United Planet conventions.


  • When Ur-Quan Kzer-Za are defeated or end the Doctrinal Conflict. Kohr-Ah declare permanent war with all non-Ur-Quan races.
  • When Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah are defeated. Sa-Matra is free to move. Ur-Quan Kzer-Za and all remaining Battle Thralls declare war on independent races. Once all of them are defeated, Kzer-Za demands surrender of each Battle Thrall, refusal makes that Battle Thrall go to war with Ur-Quan and its remaining Battle Thralls.
  • When foreign ships enter Kohr-Ah space, then Kohr-Ah will declare war on that faction and remain so until all foreign ships within its territory are destroyed.
  • Utwig and Supox offer the player to launch an invasion on Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah.
  • Chmmr(Pre-Chmmr) may research/acquire a tech with which to remove Ur-Quan slaveshield around their homeworld and another technology to remove slaveshields on other planets.
  • Spathi may research/acquire a tech with which to create a Ur-Quan slaveshield around their homeworld.
