Elite Founders can submit their star names – and their names to be included in the special thanks credit – for Galactic Civilizations III today. Simply head to http://www.galciv3.com/nameastar and login with your Stardock account (that you purchased the Elite Founders edition with) to submit your names.

Please note that any content Stardock deems inappropriate will invalidate your entire submission. We keep open minds and Galactic Civilizations III is certainly not a series that takes itself so seriously that we have to outlaw anything funny or off-beat, but profanity, trademark- or copyright-infringing content, or any kind of slurs or hate speech will not be accepted.

Star naming and special-thanks credits submissions will remain open until the alpha ends and beta begins, which will likely be toward the end of May. Please remember that any plan can be derailed in the face of the realities of game development, but that’s the timeframe we’re aiming for.

Many thanks to all of our Founders for their support. Your feedback, both on the official forums or via the Galactic Civilizations III Steam forums, has already been extremely helpful in making this the best game it can possibly be.

Not an Elite Founder? Buy or upgrade now to get alpha access, star naming rights, and more.

I found this also. It seems that I refreshed when they were in the process of updating the name list.

Are spaces allowed in star names (like in GC2, Alpha Centauri)? I tried "'Fine di Arcobaleno" and it was rejected.

Wow. This starname list is going to become unwieldy if it is not alphabetized.

Anyone else annoyed by the restrictions (no spaces, only first letter capitalized, no numbers)?  I was hoping to do something in the style of Worf 359 and now I can't.  Also because of the no spaces rule, we're going to have these odd 2 or 3 word names jammed into a single messy word.  Can we loosen the restrictions a little here Stardock?

The site (and much of GalCiv3.com) isn't working for me on Chrome

Hope this stays open long enough to fix my problems

EDIT; it's a problem with my ISP, but still, hope this stays open for a while.

Hi for our credits names is it ok to put your first name in the first box (i assume that's fine lol) and in the second box write our surname followed by a space then a nickname in brackets in the same surname box?

 

thanks in advance

Yes, very much so. Especially since the star names table that came with Alpha build 1 has star names with spaces in it.
