The Truth Is Out There GalaxyPosted on 02.03.2013

The galaxy's creator is wasting his time watching X-Files and while getting nervous about Mulder going into a dark corridor once more - only to get hit on the head again, the creator's brain was wired by a secret government project and is only able to think of a name for a galaxy in the X-Files namespace (though it is possible that actual watching of the series is responsible, says agent Scully, there were studies made, showing that there is a relation between what people watch and the narrowing down of their imagination). Anyway, there is truth to be found in the galaxy, if nothing else, who will win it.

The galaxy starts soon, Sunday, 3rd of March at 14:00 CET and there is still a lot of space to hide the documents revealing the presence of extraterrestrials among us. Join Now!

Galaxy 217 - The EndPosted on 26.02.2013


The galaxy is about to end. After a long fought battle, Castle seems to have emerged as the victor for this round, fending off most of the galaxy. Rakk'sha and Republic put up a strong performance to challenge too, and made the galaxy a very interesting one. But as in the words of Castle himself who quoted another player, "The arrogant evil.. [player who] doesn't have a strategy" has survived.

Also, an honorable mention is to go out to Dwarfers whose sacrifice set the ground for a strong challenge to be mounted by Rakk'sha and Republic. Elsewhere, other players are learning to take in the experience, as they seek to explore the game deeper in other galaxies.

A final challenge awaits however. Icelandia has openly challenged players to take on his pd8 planet at 202-1 before turn 770 when the galaxy ends. So far Predictorians has been game and attempted it. Will there be others? Or will the whole galaxy form an alliance and take it down together before time runs out?

Team galaxy coming upPosted on 30.01.2013

Following the resolution of the battle between the zombie forces and the dwarfs under their Snow White queen, an ominous silence began it's rule. But not for long - the fairy princes might have lead her happy bunch to victory, but Snow white got a snow bite and the undead are rising again, signing up on the Cosmic Supremacy forums and denying defeat by overloading the replay servers.

A new team galaxy is being organized to start soon and a forum signup in THIS thread is required. The projected tick length will be 3 hours.

Milky Wrong Way GalaxyPosted on 11.01.2013

"Wow, what is that?" asked the interstellar farmer.
"It might be the Milky Way Galaxy," said his companion. "Look at the white stuff everywhere."
The farmer stood in awe. Could it be the dairy product monopolist of the universe? Thoughts drifted towards his grandfathers farm, the tiny space cow hangar, his mother looking for worm-holes in the wholegrain quasars. But then the supermarket came and Milky Way Products (c) ruined everything. Slowly but surely people forgot the Deutcheese and the exquisite exomilk. Two and a half crystals for a cup simply wasn't realistic, but grandfather fought till the very end. His mother couldn't take it. She took all the exotics they still had and sent him to the skycity. There he studied and became a subspace specialist but his heart was empty - it was a farmers heart.
But then his clueless companion interrupted: "Ah, nevermind, look at the sign - it's Andromeda, we went the wrong way".

The galaxy starts on Sunday 13th of January at 20:00 CET and ticks away at 2h pace. Join Now.

Tree Team GalaxyPosted on 03.01.2013


The first team galaxy of 2013 has confirmed its participant list in the forum. Cheekily named the T(re)am Galaxy, short for the Tree Team Galaxy, this galaxy will let the newest doctrine tree breathe in a team galaxy for the very first time. To know more about the galaxy, please visit here.

It is set to have 3 hour ticks with faster starting ticks of 2 hours' length. Private team forums will also be set up for teams to debate on strategy once everyone is entered to the galaxy.

To players who have signed up in the forums, the galaxy is now available for you to enter. You may check the password with your team representative. Please note that you might be assigned a temporary home system while you discuss your HQ starting position and roles with your teammates over the next few days.

Galaxy features: New doctrine tree, choice of initial starting position (by forum discussion), river neutral zone, 75 x 2h ticks followed by 3h ticks. Ticks start 9 January 20:00 CET

Pretty normal Galaxy [1h]Posted on 20.12.2012

The bureaucracy galaxy has over expanded due to the demands of the expanding bureaucracy and now we're back to pretty normal levels of bureaucracy and corruption. Well, that depends on the sector of the known universe, but a factor of 1.5 isn't that bad and given the massive amount space available, you'll still be able to slip a few bucks to a police officer if he happens to catch you speeding in some far away corner of you empire - not that you were endangering anyone.

The galaxy starts on Saturday, 22nd of December at 12:00 CET. Join NOW (or a bit later).

Advisor in Galaxy 213 & 214Posted on 14.12.2012


Galaxies 213 and 214 have started their ticks. Both are open to ranks 0 and 1 players, and will be a good testing ground for new players to prove themselves against their peers of similar rank.

However, there's a slight twist this time round. One of the ranked 3 players will set up a small stall in one of the systems in each galaxy, checking in once in a while to keep players in good company. While he won't be colonising outside of his home system nor would he be actively involved in the galaxy, he will be tending to questions that players have regarding game mechanics, diplomacy, general strategy, or anything under the sun that players wish to chat about.

So watch out for [CS] Advisor Tingling's pacifist scout ships. They might just drop by your neighbourhood one of these days.

T(re)eam GalaxyPosted on 20.11.2012


As FFA players trim each other's trees in the 'Plant a Tree' galaxy, some players have started talk about giving the new doctrine tree its own spin in a team galaxy setting.

With more goodies for vanguard players beyond the early mid game and an improved trade doctrine to allow support players to be more participative, among other upgrades packed in the new tree, this could be a team game quite unlike any other.

We haven't quite figured out the start date and other details of the galaxy yet, and we'd like to hear from you. So why not drop by the forum to voice your preferences and be part of a collective tree planting initiative. Right now, we are considering starting after the year end festive holidays as most players have expressed their intentions to enjoy the break. So the game might start in January.

Galaxy features: New doctrine tree, possibly 3 hour ticks and starting in January. Sign up here
