A number of files containing GalCiv 2 in-game text, edited for grammar, readability, consistency, and logic.

With these files: small hulls are no longer "ideal for a heavy figher," you no longer equip your ships with "qauntum driver II," UP votes display as changes/week (rather than /month), large and huge hulls are presented with their correct logistics values, and much more.

A total of 10 files (out of a total 18) are corrected:

TechTree, GC2_Ships, InvTactics, Political Parties, Anomalies, Starbase Modules, GC2_Types, Planet Improvements, Events, UP Issues.

Four files (MapRaceInfo, ResourceTypes, CustomPlanets, and AbilityBonuses) are fine as is. RaceConfig is fine, and probably shouldn't be messed with (by me).

The only .xml files left to edit are three big ones: Flavor Text, GC2_Conversations, and GC2_Hints. I hope to tackle the first two pretty soon.

The download contain two folders and a (read me first) file
The use for the mod files requires GaCiv 1.1

These files are copies of hull and components renamed as jewelry files. The copies (hull, components) will then be added to the extras in the shipbuild.

The second file contain more 4 early ship that did not make the last ship pack
Ship file are 1.0 or higher
Ship race is Altarina.

Warning: If you are all ready using Mods/Models system you may have to do some rearranging of files. My ships will not load properly without the omegaMods files. I have tested my mods on the new update (1.11) and should be fine but I do not know if it will work with Kryo’s hull system. I have not have the time to test it.

The first few games I've played I was wondered what was wrong. Then it hit me all races only excell at a few things,
but have no weaknesses. Ofcourse thats not realy the case, as in normal live if you are good at one thing you bound to be
not so good at something els.

This is my first attemt at giving you the chooice to create your own flawed creation. The added bonus is that if u make a
very weak race it grants you the extra points to improve your research for instance.

Its my first attemt, not tested toughly so it might be a little bit flawed. Sugestions can be emailed to

This is a description of what I did to import the White Star into GC2 including: Exporting from Freespace, Importing into 3DS Max, Texturing and the adding of dummies/hardpoints.

Its pretty straight forward and for the experienced modder or modeller won't contain much if anything new, but I was asked to write something like this so here we go.

Two new political parties: The Imperialists (think Cylons, Goa’uld) and The Isolationists (the Vulcans, the Asgard). I created these because I wanted a political party that could be militaristic without being evil (an idealized Roman Empire comes to mind) and of course I had to create its counterweight; contemplative civilizations that could protect themselves if need be.

**** REQUIRES v1.1 or later of Galactic Civilizations II ****

“The Imperialist Party believes that there are only two real choices, to either be predator or prey. Their entire focus is on conquest for the sake of their own survival. Choosing this party will give your civilization a 30% bonus to military production and a 20% bonus to espionage.”

“The Isolationists are strong believers in keeping to themselves. Disagreements and discord between civilizations are distractions from true progress. Choosing this party will increase your research and loyalty by 15% each.”

When I heard that Stardock was providing a Technology Tree, "this" is what I hoped it would look like.

This is only the 'Non-Weapon Related' portion of the Tech Tree. I really don't see a point of doing a graphical representaion of the Weapons & Defense trees, as they seem to be better looked at in spreadsheet form.

When printing these out, be sure to use the 'Legal' settings & paper for your printer (or else 'shrink' it down to fit on standard 'Letter' size).

I've gone over it pretty carefully, but as Frogboy says: "Bugs sometime make it through"
