Stardock announced the availability of the Galactic Civilizations III 1.1 update which adds Steam Workshop integration along with two new difficulty levels and UI improvements.
Players who design their own ships or create custom factions can now easily share their creations with other Galactic Civilizations III players for free through the Steam Workshop platform. Stardock supported user created content in Galactic Civilizations III back when the game was still in development by holding contests to encourage the community to take advantage of the game’s robust ship and faction customization features. Steam workshop support is the next logical evolution for the Galactic Civilizations III customization community.
Stardock’s VP of Entertainment Derek Paxton said:
“The ability to create custom factions and design your own ships was always core to Galactic Civilizations III. Now players can easily share their creations so that each universe is unique. There are already over 400 factions and ships available for free download on Steam Workshop, created by Stardock or the Galactic Civilizations III community. You can download and play as Ghosts of Abbadon, who have ruined their home world and are setting out to find another, or download the terrifying Drengin World Eater ship.”
