Experimental Team Galaxy Starting This WeekendPosted on 23.10.2011

As far as they knew, it had been there since the beginning of time. Commonly known as 'The Edge', the Dominion Horizon cut through the galaxy, splitting it exactly in half.
On one side science and rational deduction held sway, and the beings in that part of the galaxy made great discoveries, revealing the true nature of the universe. The civilizations on the other side were governed by the esoteric and mysterious, and they peered deep into the soul of all things living.
They knew of each other, of course, even if the Dominion Horizon kept them from meeting or even talking. Neither side had any doubt, however, that the other was Evil incarnate, and a threat to their way of living and very existence.
Now that this barrier showed signs of weakening, with ruptures appearing more and more frequently, it was painfully obvious that status quo was about to end. In just 100 short years the barrier would dissipate and allow travel between the Dominions for the first time in time.

Now only one question remained: Who will be better prepared when the Dominions clash?

Note: This is a Team Galaxy. This means you're expected to cooperate closely with your team mates, and you have to sign up at the forum.

Big Bang Galaxy [1-2h]Posted on 17.10.2011

In the beginning the universe was without form and was void. But a player had rights to create galaxies and deep inside his brittle crust massive forces waited to be unleased. The galaxy creation form has loaded and suns were formed. The planet comodities shifted and rose as high as mountains. Typing spawned massive home worlds that will spew forth fiery scouts and charge the intergalactic space with strage reports. Into this swirling maelstorm of Firepower and Shields the first destroyers appeared. Tiny, without gaussian shields clinging to the PD sheltered habitats. But the seeds of autofactories grew and strengthened and spread and made new designs and orbits teemed with fleets. And with this fleets came the instinct to declare war, design cruisers and battleships. And finally there was researched a technology known as titan and there appeared the first faint signs of intelligence. The fruits of inteligence were many: fleet hulls in millions, command centers and hyperspace - the alliance and wormholes. Now it required but one more ingredient: a great Leader to unite the warring empires and build a legacy that will be remembered in the hall of fame.

The galaxy has 5 systems per player and 7-9 rich planets in systems spread out in a slightly bigger sector size than the usual. 30 homeplanet changes allow massive production, though only 5 civilization trait picks require careful balancing.

The galaxy starts it's ticks on Friday the 28th of October at 16:00 CET. Join now!

Bio-product GalaxyPosted on 27.09.2011


Unforeseen consequences of massive bio-bombing have caused a universal plague that killed almost all intelligent life in the galaxy. Tiny survivor societies were striving for their bare existence while knowledge of space technologies faded away. But as time passed factories got overgrown by plants and shipyards turned into forests, once tiny societies looked up into the skies again. Above them was a rich and empty universe, a product of bio-bombs.

The galaxy has a player to system ratio of 1:4, which means that for every player there is 4 systems with 6-7 relatively big and rich planets. A highly customizable home planet and 9 civ-trait picks can turn your home-world into a production mastodon, pumping out cruisers like they're shuttles, so prepare for massive fleets trying to take it.

Atlantis Team GalaxyPosted on 17.09.2011

For centuries the Cosmic society forgot about the deep stuff that is the true essence of things. Senseless wars and blind greed stormed the galaxies, filling them with hatred, fear and stress. Great Empires too often fell to the twisted might of ignorance, and a question begun to emerge: how can we fight good battles, and win the respect of the Great Warriors whether in victory or defeat? And when enough hearts longed for the answer, the voices of Ancient Atlanteans arrived as a whisper of hope, with revelations of the true faces of power: Courage, Honor, Respect and Love. Empires gathered around this Wisdom, and decided to fight a traditional Battle of two Teams as an affirmation of these values and as a token of gratitude to the spirit of Atlantis.

The Atlantis TG is set to start its 2 hour ticks on Friday, the 23rd of September 2011 at 18:00 CET. The participation on this galaxy is reserved for ranked players (rank 2 and up), and it requires a Forum sign up and the acknowledgement of special rules and conditions. For more information please visit the forum thread.

Atlantis TG: Can there be bliss in a good fight?

9.58 [Speed] GalaxyPosted on 15.09.2011

Position yourself in the starting blocks, wait for the starting tick and sprint into to the speed galaxy we are having over this weekend. Show the world you can be the fastest mouse operator among strategy gamers and prove you didn't start playing strategy games because you sucked in Mario Bros and wasn't too good in sports. Coming "first of the losers" in no excuse for those whose fleets want to dwarf the 100m world record.

Speed galaxy will be played on Saturday, the 17th and Sunday, the 18th of September, starting both days at 18:00 CET and ending at 23:00 CET. All players must be present in the galaxy at least 15 minutes before the beginning of the galaxy, or will be removed from the galaxy, so join only if you have time both on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, at around 5 minutes before the start, please close the client and relogin to the galaxy - a reshuffle will require you to give new orders, load governors and pick civilization traits. For more information on how speed galaxy works, the timetable and other important information, please visit the forum thread.

Extremely Long Turns Galaxy [12h]Posted on 15.09.2011

Since before the test bed galaxy was brought forth from its beginnings was this time ever conceived. Where the powers that be orchestrate the very makings of galaxies as we know it. As discussions wage into the formation of universes to house varying alliances to battle for dominance and the quick-time skirmishes over very short time spans, comes a crazy notion to see just how vigilant some beings can be. When specimens are placed in a universe that will stretch the days into months and the months into years, how will they survive? Will their frail minds be able to hold together and sustain consciousness through the seemingly unending hours...or will the mind shut down into inactivity???

The creators have seen the effects of hyper-time on the universe and always enjoyed the normal time galaxy, but never before would they have even considered the torturous test of this time dilation galaxy. Without a suitable test to compare this with, the findings are all theoretical for now. These strange and bold thoughts have been ignored for long enough...let the dilation begin...

Lion's All vs. One GalaxyPosted on 09.09.2011

The community of CS players have come together to form a new format of galaxy, termed an All vs One galaxy, where one single player would be given a rep bonus and starting boost, and become the target for all other players to bring down.

Our newest (and only second) rank 4 player has volunteered himself for the task of being the lone player, or what we call the "Borg". So the question now stands: Can players band together and come out of this bragging they managed to bring down a rank 4 player, or is there still a long way to go for some of us to match the best CS players?

The galaxy is opened for any rank, and the Borg has also agreed to use his AI progress meter to balance out the gaming experience of each player with the amount of challenge being dished out in the galaxy.

Flash Speed GalaxyPosted on 08.09.2011

We have another speed galaxy coming this weekend. Fasten your seat belts, load your governors and FLASH into the outer space with double the speed ships, double production and more than double the excitement.

Speed galaxy will be played on Saturday, the 10th and Sunday, the 11th of September, starting both days at 18:00 CET and ending at 23:00 CET. All players must be present in the galaxy at least 15 minutes before the beginning of the galaxy, or will be removed from the galaxy, so join only if you have time both on saturday and sunday. For more information please visit the forum thread.

Pancake Galaxy reshuffledPosted on 28.08.2011


Pancake galaxy was reshuffled and 799 credits were given in the beginning. Reshuffle requires you to:
- give new orders to the ships,
- reassign governors and production queues
- and pick your civilization traits.

Pancake GalaxyPosted on 21.08.2011

It is a well known and accepted fact that the creator of the universe placed it on the back of the a turtle. As the turtle could not stand on thin air/vacuum the great creator placed the turtle on the back of another turtle and that one on the back of another and so on. He however forgot that even though turtles are slow the infinite number of moves on back resulted in an infinite speed and therefore the mass has risen beyond imaginable. The hard turtle shells could not withstand the normal 6x2x6 universe and the whole construction collapsed thus creating the Pancake galaxy.

The galaxy is a standard 3D galaxy, though all suns are placed in just one plain. Planets are relatively rich and the smallest planets have been removed. The difference this time is the homeworld with a decent science setting and disabled homeworld changes. A large number of initial colony ships will make a fast start but the corruption multiplier of two should level the playing field.

The galaxy starts its tick on September 2nd. Join now!
