GalCiv IV: Supernova Dev Journal #19 - Culture is your Civilization's Character

GalCiv IV: Dev Journal - A new Culture ProgressionThe feedback we got from Beta 1 of GalCiv IV: Supernova was that the Cultural Progression tree was too big and too “soft”. Soft meaning the choices didn’t have meaningful consequences. We read all the feedback and used it to rethink the concept of culture in a 4X game. Here’s what we’ve come up with. Culture vs. InfluenceInfluence affects how far your borders go from your planet. Culture is the input that comes in that is transformed into... [read more]

GalCiv IV: Supernova Dev Journal #18 - Should there be a campaign?

GalCiv IV: Supernova Dev Journal #18 - Should there be a campaign?Sandbox 4X games generally lack a campaign, but that changed with GalCiv III, which introduced one. Over the past 30 years, a wealth of lore has been created for the GalCiv universe. I started writing the lore that would come to be used for GalCiv when I was in college which is when I wrote the first game. The question remains: should we include a campaign in the base game or offer it as DLC? Each GalCiv game has been guide... [read more]

GalCiv IV: Supernova - Experiments we're trying

Greetings! In recent years, "Early Access" has meant "Game is basically done but with bugs". And while it's true that the engine for this game is pretty "done" we are trying to take advantage of early access to try out a lot of crazy new things to get your ideas and feedback on. GalCiv IV: Supernova is being developed by the GalCiv II team and so some of the changes the team wants to make are things that come from the things we really liked in GalCiv II but in a GalCiv IV game. Some of ... [read more]

GalCiv IV: Supernova Dev Journal #17 - How much should you see?

GalCiv IV: Supernova Dev Journal #17 - How much should you see?In both GalCiv III and in the Epic release of GalCiv IV (GC4Epic) we were very generous with how much the player could “see”. On turn 1, you could see several solar systems away. Go ahead and see for yourself. When I began designing GalCiv IV: Supernova, I wanted to emphasize the exploration aspect of the game, which was something I loved in GalCiv II. After all, exploration is one of the key elements in 4X games. So how much... [read more]
