Galactic Civilizations III Beta 5.3 is live!
Pirate bases now dot the void between stars. (Or cluster up into a terrifying pirate fringe if you use weird map settings like we did in last week’s dev stream. The Drengin-pirate wars were intense.)
Performance is much improved, particularly on large maps. No more waiting for the AI to pick its nose so you can get back to conquering.
Speaking of, the AI spends way less time picking its nose and way more time doing space emperor things (aka it’s quite a bit smarter).
And of course there are a multitude of polish points, balance improvements, and fixes large and small. Read the full patch notes here: http://forums.galciv3.com/463499
We deeply appreciate everyone who takes the time to review Galactic Civilizations III, particularly on Steam, and we hope this patch makes it worthwhile for new folks to write their reviews and for others to update their existing reviews. We work hard to earn those thumbs, you know.
Thanks for your support, and happy conquering!
