I would like to report that Galciv 1 is now officially dead. It has been dead for a while now. Who agrees with me?

Why is it dead?

I do not agree

      
#2  by Citizen Zerenoth9 - 2/5/2008 7:00:22 PM

Because pretty much everyone else has left. But since you are here, I guess it isn't totally here.

Its not totally dead I found it and have told all my friends about it trying to get more players

I am sorry. It is just that all the stardock officials have left and experienced players(except me) have gone to Galciv 2

I think not. I am still here. Many play the game without supmitting scores or participate in forums. Some of us have intermittant internet connections which make it hard to submit games (or it is done in bunches)

Okay. I take back what I said. It just seems that everyone went to galciv 2 because it is much better.

                    
#7  by Citizen Captain122 - 2/9/2008 6:23:41 PM

Most people have gone to GalCiv2 but not all

GalCiv2 is not better...it's just different...

      
#9  by Citizen Zerenoth9 - 4/1/2008 2:48:47 PM

Whatever. Does everyone have to prove me wrong?

Hey I actually like Gal Civ 1 better - less micro management. I just wish they would fix the anomoly bug.

Hi there!

I also think that GalCiv2 is not better, just different.

Yea,it is really looks like everyone gone here.Yesterday I posted a thread,regarding to AI behavior,but no one responded.So sad.

#13  by Citizen The Beastmaster - 12/26/2008 5:25:03 PM

I think it's safe to say the forum and quite possibly the community is dead, but the game itself works fine and is just as fun as ever, so I'd say it is not dead in the least.

I just got done with a Galciv 2 game and went back to Galciv 1. I like it better. The graphics in Galciv 2 may be better, but Galciv 1 is just more fun!

I saw Gal Civ II in stores during Xmas and it looked great. But I figured I would need to know Gal Civ I first so picked it up. This is a great game and I am posting my scores to the Metaverse even though all my random searches of other players haven't found a single score posted since 2007 (though I know there are others still posting scores). I would say this site is still live albeit on life support. If dead, there's no way they'd pay for the upkeep.

Not true, look at my scores (although I have not posted any lately)

And im here, Again.

With a new assault planned on the Metaverse

I just installed it today (upgrading computers), so it definitely is not dead.

#20  by Citizen Dragonshrike - 8/12/2009 10:45:46 AM

Not dead 4 me either. Unfortunately, GalCiv still will not allow new scores to load again!

I'm completely new to GalCiv, beginning Dec 2009 with GalCiv 1 naturally...

It's not an easy game as I'm used to those FPS-type games, but I'm sticking to it and learning to "think" as I play (for a change) and not just blow things up.

Aeligos, take a look at the links I provided recently in the "Guide for beginners" thread.
Being newish to the game, those should be helpful.

Thank you much Beastmaster... now if I can only figure out how to keep the game from crashing to desktop.

I notice this happens whether I load the game from Start menu and from Impulse Now, but it's more frequent with the latter. I'll take a look at the forums for the fix-er-uppers regarding crashes.

The forum is not dead for me either, but it is a bit slow. I am always behind the times. Seems I wait four years after a game hits the streets to play it, but once I dive in, I am unable to quit. One of my top 5 favorites of all time is Reach for the Stars, which I played on the Apple IIgs (1989?). Picking up to Gal Civ back in Sep., 2009, was an easy choice, and I have done almost no other gaming since. At first, even on the easiest levels, I survived less than half the time. Lots of superb info and links on the forum here helped pull it all together. Today, I just made the first page on Metaverse, as #25. Like Dragonshrike, I was immediately awarded a medal for being in the top 25 and also for being a former #3 player! I'll never play long enough to actually go that far. In all of my games now, I never fight. Just start out as high as possible in trade and diplomacy, try to keep everyone happy, hope they don't take one of my 3-5 planets early on, take in tons of $$$ in trade, use the money to buy up all player starbases with resources, which means a huge amount of influence is spread, then turn several starbases into death-star cultural bombs. If one of them moved into a sector won't flip a planet, two will. Quickest 60K level win took 3 hours, average game time is now about 4-5 hours. Dragonshrike, congrats on being so high up the ladder.
