Just in time before the third Beta Galaxy starts its ticks, we have completed the move to the new server. We now have got a lot more processing power and bandwidth available!
This allows us to open another galaxy: Galaxy Beta 8 has just been opened for signup. It will start its ticks Friday, February 23rd at 19:45 CET.
Thank you for playing/testing, and enjoy the game!
Moving to new serverPosted on 10.02.2007
We will be moving over to a brand new server Sunday morning. This means that the entire webpage, and the Galaxy Servers will go offline, and ticks will be halted. Expect this to happen between 10:00 CET and 12:00 CET. See you on the other side
Public Beta has openedPosted on 30.01.2007
A few days later than originally planned we are excited to present the Public Beta Version of Space Civilizations! All planned features are implemented and now need to be thoroughly tested. Please note that in order to sign up to the all new Galaxy Beta 5 you need to play and finish the Tutorial Galaxy.
We are welcoming you to the all new version of Space Civilizations, and hope you will enjoy the game
The return of Public Beta (updated)Posted on 20.01.2007
Here's a quick update: we are currently busy with the final preparations for the next Public Beta phase. Most of the required prerequisites are already complete, so we are confident to have regular galaxies back around the 25th of January. We look forward to welcoming back all players from the first public beta phase and all newly registered players!
Thanks again to all participating players for playing/testing. Please do join the discussion in Speed Galaxy Beta 3 - Aftermath, in order to identify the current weaknesses of the game and helping me to further improve the game experience. Your feedback is most welcome!
Next Test-Galaxy on Sunday, December 10thPosted on 01.12.2006
We are planning to run another test galaxy on Sunday, December 10th at 16:00 CET (that is 10:00 ET). Again this will be a speed galaxy that will end at 22:00 CET the same day. Tick times are between 1 and 3 minutes, with several breaks planned in between.
New features include an improved Governor, Shared Production Queues, and the all new Assault and Defense Admirals. We will announce more details in the coming days in the forums, as well as an updated version of the online manual.
The Galaxy opens for signup on Thursday, December 7th at 20:00 CET. Please do only signup if you truly intend to play on Sunday!
Speed Galaxy UpdatePosted on 24.11.2006
The next test galaxy will have to be pushed back slightly, as some of the features that we want to have tested in that galaxy are not yet finished. The most likely date right now is December 3rd, but this could slip by another week in the worst case. I keep you updated.
November PlansPosted on 05.11.2006
We are approaching the start of another speed test galaxy, which will be the last one before the regular galaxies are re-opened. The speed galaxy is planned for end of November, and regular galaxies are opened shortly after that.
All registered users will be notified by email about the exact starting date of the next galaxy as soon as the date is set. Thank you all for your patience!
Next Test-Galaxy on Sunday, July 16thPosted on 11.07.2006

The next Beta-GalaxyPosted on 07.06.2006
After successfully running the first Speed Galaxy last Sunday, we have now got a clear picture what features to focus on next. We will now concentrate our efforts to deliver an improved version of the game, based on your feedback, in the next 4 to 6 weeks.
We plan to run another Speed Galaxy for testing purposes mid-July. Please watch this space for more details.
